Lupé: The music business is wack, especially the Hip-Hop side. Other acts like rock ‘n roll are more performance based. Even what they talk about is different. Hip-Hop talks about k!lling people. It promotes promiscuity within our culture. It goes against the grain of morality and ethics. It misleads the youth. It reinforces those stereotypes. It shows people hollow success. Having a mouthful of diamonds is not successful. When they see someone in a suit or a Talib Kweli, they’re not looking at them as successful. They see themselves in those people and most people don’t want to be that. They want to have the chain, the alcohol, the money, the cars, and the fame. We know what’s going on. We’re the distraction from what’s really going on in the streets. The business likes that. The rap music video is to get the viewer to the next commercial, so that the people can buy it. That’s what it’s about. The video is for promotional use only. But it makes people tune in long enough for the commercials and that’s where the money is at. As long as it makes money, especially with the history of violence and celebrity in this country, then that’s what it’s always going to be about.

lupe is lupe, so dont compare him to the goat. Let tupac RIP. Lupe dont sell because hes not tite, no matter if its hip hop or not. RUN DMC was hip hop and they sold. Sooooooooooo jus because he says "rea'l" sh*t like people say, then no ones really feel him. U say if we dont feel pasion and soul i'm brainwashed, then i say fu*k u. He's garbage to me. Hes a lame and dont sale.


close thread please
I can compare any rapper if I choose to do so. And you missed my point. RUN DMC crossed over with Walk This Way. That's Aerosmith if you didn't know. But Lupe rapping about skateboarding is wack to you. It is clear to me and others that people are feeling Lupe but you fail to grasp this fact because you are blinded by your hate. Do you wanna know something? 50 Cent is gangsta and he sells. You have nothing to back your opinion except for hate. That's why you do not feel Lupe's soul. You are brainwashed. You just want something to nod your head to. You just want punchlines. You are dumbed down my friend.

LUPE'S A PUNK, he needs to realize hes in america and america is all about $$$$ so i guess he didnt learn about being in american culture, although he says something about english people having accents and babies learning from their parents (wonders what lupe thinks about the stereotype of all blacks wanting to be Basketball Players and Rappers....cause he fell into that stereotype himself). whatever dude. lupe is no early Public Enemy or Boogie Down Productions. Hes crying cause he isnt selling records. America is about capitalism. If he want to be artsy and act like he's better then everyone else let him move to Canada cause thats how those (stereotype) people really act. Ive he was really about putting out a good peice of art then he wouldnt be worried about sales. but he is! ill show you what happened in hiphop....... It started out in the disco with stup a.ss sugarhill gang, then it got to the streets and became popular with break dancing and graffiti. ie...WILD STYLE.....then it went pro black with in late 80s and early 90s( except for gangsters being glorified in the movie COLORS. around that time some party music from the left coast was comming out like digital underground, but actually they were in the "were all in the same gang video"
which helped push more gangsterism into rap. NWA, DR Dre, SNOOP TUPAC AND BIGGIE prosper while acts like souls of mischief and the pharcyde have ok albums but arent being promoted cause the gangster trend has the money and power to knock out the artsy little trends like alot of mid to late 90s hiphop. in comes LORD DIDDY and he flipped it into party music and more about dumb materialism(but that is what american business wanted anyway. atleast LUPE did mention "consumers". Then dance/electronica got more mainstream and hiphop and rap was going nowhere and dying out. since with techno, house videos, they really have no point just more of beat but sometimes a message, the album lords from above were waiting for anytime to switch the music industry back to crap (RAP) . so after a couple buildings in new york take a fall and mass hysteria sets in, the opium supply is stopped and so is the importation of exstacy, COKE becomes the big drug of choice, and it allowed the music scene to change and hiphop quickly took it over and people like the clipse and others talking about slanging coke promoted it. (WHILE GEORGE BUSH AND HIS ISRAELI BANKER FRIENDS IMPORT IT INTO AMERICA). So technically the pro black and old hiphop anger at america and the situation of the world was switched into consumerism gangster sh*t, mid late 90s hiphop made a challenge for the crown but didnt have the money to knock out the gangster consumerism which turned into party consumerism. so we went from a bunch of smart more intuned people, into the anger of thugs, and finally switched into drug using stupid consumers who love MTV. So the rebellion that was once there has become the status qou and fills the pockets of the already wealthy. The Revolution will not be televised cause it was snuffed out in the late 90s. So lupe, either shut up and give all your money to the poor in your neighborhood and give your albums away for free not worrying about your master(THE MONEY), or use that money you made to
start a real revolt (black panther style) , cause only when we remove the president and both the dems and republicans, can we effect the type of music that is being sold. USE THE MONEY TO BLOW THE CAMERAS UP IN THE CITY AND BAD NEIGHBORHOODS, SO YOU CAN PLAN A REVOLT WITHOUT LAW ENFORCEMENT NOTICING. LUPE WAKE THE fu*k UP
