  1. Wayno right go to a Kendrick, Cole, concert it's diverse AF. U got pro-black mfs, next too rich white kids, and everybody in-between. I went to a future concert and it was full of teens mostly white, had a few black people but 90% of white kids, I think his black fans in attendance was his early unground fans like myself.

  2. I think the problem is that we're in an era of music without longevity. We're getting a lot of artists who don't have that much substance in their content but can put a catchy song together. That shit's not going to last. That's why we're getting a new "lil" somebody every month. Unfortunately (or fortunately) kids are growing up during this era so we can't exactly expect to hear anything different from their opinions. Just enjoy the music and accept the short term for what it is, and our artists with longevity will live on. There will always be evolution.

  3. Hate the stereotype that a musician(singers can come from a poor or good upbringing) especially a rapper has to come from a poor upbringing to be able to rap. False statement. Take a look at Drake, the #1 rapper/hip hop artist of his generation. Came from a good upbringing. The opposite of what the meaning of a rapper is defined has.
