Each new rapper is more morally depraved, cynical and nonsensical. The producers are the only individuals saving what's left of hip hop "culture" The artists themselves are being shown either beefing, spending money foolishly and outlandishly, getting exposed by a thot, getting extorted, extorting someone, being on a narcotic, exhibiting distributing narcotics, or dying... In a constant circle. What is the agenda behind the music that is being exhibited through the overall scheme of artists, music, and the drama surrounding it that seemingly has nothing to do with us? But then look at the condition of the people that consume it and from whom it is created.... Behind all the records and the singles and interviews and you're looking at too many bodies. And if listening to this music is perpetuating it, then one should consider the overall effects. The older I get the more I realize how far we are from where we need to be and the soundtracks to our lives are pretty morbid underneath the melodies and 808s. That letter written years ago is starting to sound way more true. The industry is filled with demons and so is the music. The execs are rich filthy scumbags who hate black people, so what do you think they do to the people they pay to make you think they're rich behind closed doors? Wake up from the fantasy. Be careful with what you allow to play in your mind and repeat over and over. More and more rappers are going to keep dying and sadly their fans too.
