Hip Hop is Dead... Or is it????

(Classic Rant part 2! I wrote this back on 2/6/08 LOL O & since I never really said what it is I do. I'm a personal promoter in the indie hip hop circle. & net radio personality BangnatRadio.com dropping soon.)

This is a special addition of my rant because I am pissed! What we
like to call the hell off! I'm not holding my tongue no fucking MORE!
Let me drop some science right fast. I don't want to hear no one else
in the fucking United States... Yeah I said it UNITED STATES! Say "Hip
Hop is dead!" I'm about to break this shit down... So it can forever
and consistently be broke!
Hip Hop is NOT dead!
It's just being ignored by main stream. I'm about to break down the
game to the world. I have some good friends in this rap game who
really have talent. Lyrically! Some who have had major hits over seas!
Some who could shut down anyone you hear on the radio or see in these
mags without even breaking out their A Bomb material.
So I sent out a few tracks to a kat I know @ another magazine...
Peep the convo. (He cool people so I'm going to black out the name)
"Hey, I feel you...don't get mad at me...lol. Personally, I prefer
artists like **** but it is what it is with the ***** audience. So we
have to cater to the demographics. I mean, **** might be big overseas
but ya know how the game is. Artists with the most talent aren't the
artists that people are checking for."
Now my question is who the fuck got polled for this. Why wasn't
there any "vote or die" shirts made up for this election. I mean who
did the census for what type of music people wanted to hear? I vote in
every election (even the small ones that ask if schools should have
more crayons ) Shit if there was an election I would have slept over
night at the door to cast my ballet.
Just because the cooperate heads in television and radio play
something over and over again. Don't mean people want to hear it. The
game is simple. 1st the artist with the most money get the most play.
They have the disposable income to buy their way into clubs and mags
radio etc. So the person with hella skillz and a 9-5 and over $40G's
in student loans is often over looked... What the fuck.
Come on people in real life.
Look at the 90s! We had Foxy / Kim Plus Gangsta Boo and Trina! Jay Z,
Nas, Biggie, Busta, Common & Pac.... & Ghost Town DJ's, Freak Nasty
and 69 Boys. There was variety back then. Who said it had to be all or
nothing? Where did this one way come from.
I mean 1st they take off video soul Photobucket then they fuck up rap city (Now they took it off)!
What's next people. It's like music in the main stream has lost
creativity. Even in video's! It's like directors are lazy now. Just
toss some booty shaking chicks up there and tape it. Hold on! No I'm
not hating do what you do. There have been a few moments where if I
had a Buffie Butt Photobucket I would have jump in a video lol. Times is hard
sometimes. I wont hate on how some ones eating but I miss the videos
that actually went along with the theme of the song. Plot story line
all that.
Work Wit Me People!
So lets recap we have A. Addressed the problem. Now we will B. Find a
solution. E Mail the radio stations magazines. Write fuss cuss! For
what you want. Its like people not voting but bitching about the out
come. If you don't stand up then you have no right to say shit. Just
shut the fuck up. This is the time. This is the revolution and it will
be televised as well as broadcast. This is our movement. Stand up
and be fucking heard. Photobucket

THANK you!
you have no idea how much I wanna strangle someone when they say that hip hop is dead shyt. Like it's a person...
Real hip-hop heads should know that hip-hop lies within the heart, so if they think its dead then i guess they're dead too, to hell with em.

You're on point like a #2 pencil! Hip hop can NEVER die because it's a culture. And as far as the music of this culture, the true art & the balance of variety that we saw thru the 90s, has gave way to payola, microwavable rappers who can only get an EP deal! And It's about that time that we hold thses record execs accountable for the trash that they're sellin' us! Lemme holla @ the President of BET for a minute....

I PERSONALLY DON'T THINK HIP-HOP IS DEAD, AS LONG AS AN UNDERGROUND EXIST IT WILL NEVER DIE, WHAT HAS HAPPENED IS YOU HAVE THESE CORPORATE IDIOTS, THAT KNOW NOTHING ABOUT THE CULTURE OR STREET LIFE WHAT SO EVER, ALL THEY WANT IS A BUNCH OF RINGTONE MUMBO JUMBO TO PUSH TO THE YOUTH TO MAKE A QUICK BUCK, AND THEY WANT SOMEBODY THAT HAS BEEN SHOT, OR HAS A CRIMINAL PAST AND IF THEY DON'T HAVE ONE, THEY MAKE ONE UP, I HAVE NOT WATCHED BET IN ABOUT 5 MONTHS, I STOPPED SUPPORTING THEM, I REMEMBER WHEN YOU COULD WATCH RAP CITY AND SEE ALL THE INDIE ARTIST THAT YOU WOULD NEVER SEE ON MTV, BEFORE RAP CITY WAS DESTROYED, IT WAS JUST LIKE WATCHING 106 & PARK, WE GOTTA TAKE OUR CULTURE BACK, FROM THESE SNAKES AND VULTURES IN HIGH PLACES, STOP SUPPORTING THE TRASH AND TAKE HIP-HOP BACK ONE SHORTY AT A TIME.
