Contemplating "Lupe Fiasco"

"...If you turn on TV, all you see’s a bunch of “what the fucks?”
Dude is dating so and so, blabbering 'bout such and such
And that ain't Jersey Shore, homie thats the news
And these the same people supposed to be telling us the truth
Limbaugh is a racist, Glenn Beckkk is a racist
Gaza strip was getting bombed, Obama didn’t say shit..."

~ Lupe Fiasco, "Words I Never Said"

  4. Yeah she was on another track with Eminem and even though she didn't sound that "bad" her presence really didn't add anything. It was kind of annoying.

  5. I blame BOB for making it acceptable to have these whiny emo chicks on your tracks. Kelis wasn't available? Alicia Keyes couldn't swing by and drop a verse? Fuck...they couldn't put in a call to Auburn?

  6. "Cross cultural appeal"*cough, cough* White appeal.

    Destiny's Child started all this when they did the remix of "No,no,no". The slow version they played on black radio stations, the *gag* remix was marketed to the non urban radio stations.

    At least the girl from Paramore can actually sing, this chick though.......from what I gather she's a producer, song writer and further confirms my opinion that singer/songwriters should just stick to songwriting. Keri Hilson dis this to get her name out there. She was singing on everybody's track, a hook or a chorus, and her voice was barely recognizable most of the time, but her it got her name out there.

    And when she was finally ready to drop HER album people vaguely knew who she was. I guess thats what this chick is doing, or being forced to do by her record label. *shrug*

    And guess this is apart of this new...marketing trend that the industry is doing. Put multiple talented artists on a record together and it'll sell better? Like I kiiind of get it, like all the popular songs are collabs with numerous artists"Swagger like Us" is a good example.

    I guess they are really hurting to sell these records especially with relatively unknown or not that well established people.

    The whiny bitches have got to go - appealing to white people be damned. If that's the sound white folks are into, then they need to leave it off our tracks and keep it to themselves.
