Shit Talk Right Philosophy

Larry’s column has great news for hiphop! Its sales are plummeting. Last year the fall was an incredible 20 percent. This year it will be more. The hiphop bubble has finally burst!
This is why I’m not mad at total music sales taking a 20 percent hit last year, or a toddler’s handful of rap albums going platinum; I think it’s high time rap stopped looking like an easy route to riches—maybe those who truly don’t love the craft and the culture will become actual marketers, PR people, and white-collar corporate tools. Then the rest of us weird bums who have no choice but to do this shit will just be left with the task of trying to find a way to live doing the art we love.
Death be Nelly. Death be all the sucker emcees who have a one-track mind like Diamond D’s Sally. Now is the time “to stop fakin’ the funk” and give “a fuck about the art.”
Speaking of art, I’m now committed to dubstep. It is the highest point at which new music stands.
