Rapper Coolio savages 'drones' of music industry

Rapper Coolio savages 'drones' of music industry | Rap Music | 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.

Nick Citrano's insight:

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

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.

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.

Nick Citrano's insight:

Fredo is threating the lifes of others over pretty much music. Kids who see articles like this want to be just like the rappers they see. They want to see themselves acting like the people in music. The inner city kids see this type of action and think this is the right thing to do

Do you really think rappers have that big of an influence on their fans from what they say and do? I can't see people reacting out the actions they see through a video, I think they are smarter then that.

Piers Morgan: If black America wants the N-word to die, they have to kill it themselves

Piers Morgan: If black America wants the N-word to die, they have to kill it themselves | Rap Music | Scoop.it
PIERS MORGAN: The reason it is so ingrained in pop culture is that many blacks, especially young blacks reared to the soundtrack of N-word splattered rap music, use it in an ironic way.

Nick Citrano's insight:

Rap music commonly uses the word and there is no way the word could be stopped. People use the word just like "dude" or "man". I don't think any race or person could stop the world and stopping the word does not end racism.

Leeza Trainor's comment, November 17, 2014 9:33 AM
I found this very interesting. I have noticed that black rap stars use the word very often. They are almost normalizing the word and not showing it in the disrespectful way that it should be.
Mike Benkoski's comment, November 17, 2014 12:48 PM
Going off Lezzas response I agree that the word will never go away. Its basically became a word of culture in the Rap world.

[Video] ScHoolboy Q – ‘Hell Of A Night’

[Video] ScHoolboy Q – ‘Hell Of A Night’ | Rap Music | Scoop.it

ScHoolboy Q – ‘Hell Of A Night’ By Amber B Boredom causes ScHoolboy Q to drop visuals for a stand out off of Oxymoron which only dropped earlier this year. The video which is held in a club is trippy and looks like a crazy party. Definitely worth checking out. Follow me: Getmybuzzup on Twitter |... http://getmybuzzup.com/schoolboy-q-hell-of-a-night/

Nick Citrano's insight:

While it maybe a good music video and song, the messsage behind the music video has a bad influence on the youth and may persuade them to have one "hell of a night". Young minds are very easily persuaded and this an example that could influence them.

Even if the tune is good in a song, doesn't mean that the words and the message that goes along with that song are good for the younger audience.
