Classic Journee' Rant.... On Indie Hip Hop

Side Note....
{Aight I went to support one of my homeboys at this show last night. & I had a flashback to the time I wrote this. Thought it would be a nice time to re-visit the topic. O I still feel the same way I did... 3/20/2007!!!! And I still want this message to get out to the masses. }

I was @ this open mic on Monday past lost and confused! Wondering why in the hell do some folk about here make music. I mean DANG! Do you like hearing your own voice??? All I heard Photobucket was Foolishness to a beat! The break down. Most of the kat's out there are in some type of "MEGA GROUP" I mean Wu Tang size. (Not just the Wu i'm talking about the Wu with the ext. wu tang members.) MEGA MEGA Groups. The type where 1/2 the group has to stand along side the stage because their is no room. Then everyone wants to hop around like the Easter Bunny and Scream! Now since it's a mega group they have the same producer. So they be rapping on the same beat for at lest 45 min's and then here come's the 2nd MEGA group to do the same thing. Every now and then you may get a hot artist to pop up at that spot but this is rare. Then you have the BS DJ who wants you to pay for play!!!!
WOW that's deep.
I have no respect for this DJ for so many reason. Mainly because he put out a mix CD the 50 Top Mc's in NC and it was the worse thing I ever heard in my life. (No back up.... Afro Man is the worse ish I ever herd. But trust this is a close 2nd!) There might have been the top 50 MCs in 74 that night. But far from the top Mc's in NC! Then they were rapping over the same BS beat. What was that???? I promise you 46 of those kat's should NOT have been on there! In REAL Life.... I would be shame to even be on there. How you gonna have the top NC Mc's and not have Ike Trunah, Bishop, The One Kemist, Charles Herron..... what are you really going through.
I'm not hating i'm just stating this rap game aint for everyone. Just because your best friend tell you something is hot... Don't feed into that hype. Just because your grandma support your dreams of being the next wack rapper to kicking Main Stream Hip Hop in the gut after its already been gang raped by foolishness. I'm just trying to save you. Because when Hip Hop recover it's coming back to get you.
Remember what goes around comes around!
You shouldn't be so careless with your extra money! You know you could get your credit right with that money you spend on wack beats and studio time. Feed some homeless kids. Something but stop with the wack-ness... I'm putting my foot down!
Next time I hear a wack rapper i'm going to freeze tag you! Tap you on your shoulder and you just STOP!

LOL @ the Wu clan + extended members.
As a rapper I know that I should be out there doing open mics but because of foolishness like this I tend not to do so because a true artist can't even shine over all the garbage. lol.

I feel like the game is calling me back. I haven't done a show in so long... But after last night I just wanted to take over. You can think promoting and having shows is easy. But everyone can't do it. Well do it to the point where its effective. @ the show I was @ last night this group got up and was nonstop. I mean they did a 40 min set, when the show was already behind. & It was trash. The whole set trash. I wanted to throw one of the free cds ii got. @ their heads. I was talking to someone and told them "I hate to be the dream killer... I lied... Bang Band {pow pow [with my Harlem Nights little gun]} Go bag some groceries...

Those dudes woulda got kicked out of any club in the NYC! Trust, I woulda been the 1st one to throw the CD on stage! You're so right: Bein' an MC is not for everyone. And if cats wanna rap, be original....

Like Jay-Z said, "America got rappers afraid of being themselves"....
