They pluck someone from obscurity, regardless of talent, and shove that person in face until you know their name and are familiar with their music. You hear it all the time and it either wears you down likely or you fester with a hatred and rage at its repeated attempts to break you. I just thought it was okay.
The song later on became a single and other people started to like it, but I had already bonded to it by then. I like that song too. I was working at a movie theater when it came out and it was playing on the televisions that play all the trailers. I heard song countless times a day for a whole summer.
It was just there.
But over time it just became this familiar sound in the background of my shift and when I heard it outside of work it reminded me of the funny jokes I shared with my friends on the job and how excited we were to see Spider-Man when it came out. The song played right before the trailer. I might have had a genuine fondness for that song if I heard it enough on my own time and connected it of my own free will to however many pleasant memories.
I like that song because I was basically given no choice. How did we get here? But why do it? Disposability would completely solve the problem of having to find actual talented people and develop them as artists so that you can have a viable product for public consumption. That takes energy, time, patience and most importantly, money. Well
J cole hookups t-shirts you wanna gamble less money, less time, less patience and less energy, then the move to make is to acclimate the audience into settling for people with less talent.
You could start by manipulating regions with less developed sounds so that they stick to music that is more basic in style and structure and thus more easily duplicated. Coastal areas tend to be more populated and thus more likely to have a scene that is thriving, avant garde and cutting edge.
Any of this sound familiar yet? It takes less than three years for this line of thinking to cycle back around to the next crop of wanna be stars from the area. People J cole hookups t-shirts to incentives.
What do you wanna do? You wanna keep fighting me on this or you wanna make money?
Next thing you know, this simple shit is all over the radio. She used it to her advantage. You could throw a rock and bounce it off of a dozen of them. What you need is someone hot. She squeals with delight, happy to take the job for even less than you usually pay. The singer from last year calls you, looking for work. You tell her your J cole hookups t-shirts is full. This way you hedged your bets. And it only cost you a fraction of what getting a singer with perfect pitch cost you last year when they were so rare.
Because there are so many singers the rules have changed and their value has gone down. Now attractiveness has become the top priority. Well there are even more hot girls in the area than there are hot girls who can actually sing.
So when the girls audition, you choose the hottest one. But the Autotune guy gets two thirds of what the singer used to get.
Because the value that the singer used to bring to the table has been transferred over to him. The hot singer from two shows ago has seen her earning potential decrease exponentially due to inflation and the transference factor.
There are way more people who can do that than people who can comprehensively put "J cole hookups t-shirts" a lyrical masterwork.
There was room for both before the Listener Deficiency.
Now not only is the rapper not that
J cole hookups t-shirts, a chunk of the value he brought to the table has been replaced by the producer. If you throw ghostwriters into the mix, then what is the rapper even bringing to the table? With a little practice, damn near anyone can do the performance part of the job. At least when we were talking singers in the example, the girls had to be hot. Have you seen the latest XXL Freshman classes? I challenge you to find the equivalent of a male model.
What are these new rappers? In a word; Kardashians. I recently read an article that perfectly explained what makes The Kardashians so special. They speak a language so fluently that anyone else who speaks it instantly recognizes what it is and the power it conveys. They speak the language of social value. It is literally how to win friends and influence people. Social value is game on steroids.
Ever wonder why a woman would cheat on her rich husband of eleven years and risk her stable marriage to have an affair with some guy who pushed all her instant attraction buttons? That guy speaks social value so well that it outranked, money, familiarity, stability and security. J cole hookups t-shirts new generation speaks social value better than they rap.
J cole hookups t-shirts they can package them. You have to split them up into little groups and see what appeals to them the most. This is the sole point of demographics. So that marketers know the best way to sell to any given group.
So when they package these new pseudo-rappers they aim them at the lowest possible common denominator to acclimate them into this idea that conveying social value is more important than actual talent. J cole hookups t-shirts is that lowest common denominator? The hardest place in the world to find an original thought is the mind of a child.
So all they can do is copy. This is how you attain social value. This will make people like you. This will get you laid. So they learn how to package things under labels.
What rapper is outselling Nickelback? This is an illusion. But the fruits of which are obvious. Look at how T. Look at Kanye West voicing support for Donald Trump. This is the art of peer pressure. Is it J cole hookups t-shirts coincidence that those sitting in the highest and most visible status positions, gatekeepers of an entire culture, just so happen to be the ones who are least likely to challenge the status quo even when presented with a golden opportunity to do so? There are mechanisms in place to ensure that even if you become successful, you can really only go so far without participating in this kind of behavior.
The tournament system that keeps rappers in competition with one another is just another example of that mechanism. Rap is a reverse hustle?
In the beginning, absolutely. Look at who the rapper has to pay. The rapper has to pay someone to shoot and edit his videos. He pays someone to take the picture that will be his album cover. He pays someone to mix and master his songs. And some of them even pay for the opportunity to perform. I maintain that that is just plain unacceptable
J cole hookups t-shirts in most cases a scam.
It works even better if you have more money to invest.
A lyrical genius with a day job, or a semi-literate Trap God? Did you guess Trap God? I knew that you could. That part has been done. But that brings us back to the original question, why do this? Take a macro view for a second. You ever notice that while Hip Hop has been incentivized to glorify criminal behavior, there are really only certain types of behavior that get glorified?
