Rapper Coolio savages 'drones' of music industry

Rapper Coolio savages 'drones' of music industry | Hip-Hop & Rap News | Scoop.it

Rap star Coolio has launched a savage attack on the music industry, accusing record labels of engineering a cover-up of decent music.

The Grammy Award-winner says talented musicians are being held back in favour of "drones" by an industry that cares only about money.


Via Pierre Priot
Greg Hersey's insight:

Rapper Coolio gives his opinion on today's music industry saying "It's creating an endless supply of drones and robotic idiots who are just driven by pounding bass and flashing lights.". I agree with with some of his points because I too believe that alot of todays mainstream music is very generic.

Rap music is full of people who follow anything anyone tells them to do or say. Their are a bunch of drones in the industry and this article exploits it ti make us aware of the problems in the rap world. Coolio shows us all how "drones" are controlling what we listen to and hear

Brandon Kwiatkowski's comment, November 12, 2014 10:38 AM
I never looked at rap artists like this before really, I usually look at them to be money griping pop stars but they really are "drones" and do whatever people tell them to do.
