THERE IS A MARKET FOR NIGGAS!




HE SAID THERE IS A MARKET FOR NIGGAS!!


WHO AM I TO SAY SELLING YOUR SOUL IS A BAD THING?


WHAT IS IT THAT YOU WANT IN LIFE? ARE YOU TRYING TO SAVE A CULTURE? DOES THE "CULTURE" DO ANYTHING FOR YOU?


OR IS IT ... IF YOU RAP ABOUT "THE BULLSHYT" YOU DONT LOVE YOURSELF, RESPECT YA SELF, OR CARE ABOUT YOUR CULTURE.


NOW .. DID YOU LOOK AT CHAPPELLE AND SAY HE WAS CRAAZY FOR NOT TAKING THAT MONEY , OR DID YOU APPLAUD HIM FOR STANDING UP?


HE IS RIGHT .. THERE IS A MARKET FOR NIGGAS .. BUT THERE IS A MARKET FOR EVERYTHING. I DONT THINK THE ARGUMENT SHOULD BE WHY IS THERE A MARKET FOR NIGGAS, BUT IT SHOULD BE WHY DOES THIS MARKET SELL SO MUCH?


IF WE HAD ANOTHER OUT ... DONT YOU THINK WE WOULD TAKE IT? WE ALL "CAN BE" DOCTORS , LAWYERS, AND POLITICIANS, BUT HOW MANY OF US HAVE THE ACTUAL RESOURCES OR THE CHANCE TO ACTUALLY PURSUE THOSE KINDS OF DREAMS.


WHITE PEOPLE / BLACK PEOPLE / ASIANS PEOPLE / INDIAN PEOPLE / ALL KINDS OF PEOPLE ONLY DO WHAT THEY KNOW.


WHETHER THEY HAVE LIVED IT, OR THEY HAVE READ ABOUT IT, OR THEY HAVE SEEN IT AROUND, YOU ARE ONLY AS GOOD AS YOUR EDUCATION. SO IF NIGGAS ONLY KNOW NIGGA SHYT, CAN YOU BLAME A NIGGA? ANSWER THAT QUESTION!


THAT VIDEO HAS A NUMBER OF HOT BUTTONS AND HOT TOPICS, SO JUST PICK ONE AND TELL ME WHAT YOU THINK!

daaaaayyyuummm....i loooved it...he was spitting some truths...i understand him but at the same time i cant totally hate the, shoot'm up bang bang, rappers..for they are a product of a really fucked up system....ggranted there are several strong people that made it out of their ghetto ass circumstances, many havent been able to muster up the strength to fight the demons that haunt them and there families....for this isnot just a matter of people and human flesh...we are all in the middle of spiritual warfare...we are not actually mad at each other, its the spirit that consumes us.......hip hop is a form of lifting up your voice that unites a people, especially black, and many who want to be like us....Instead of thinking negatively about the messenger(rapper), lets be happy that God used him to bring us all together...thas one battle won in spiritual warfare....now lets pray, look forward to, and be happy for the hip hop massiahs, who were strong enough to use hip hop to get out of there hood, but smart enough to use it to start a new system.....

OK...Like I told you... I seen this before, I loved it...and its the fucking truth!
He actually gave me goosebumps.

Don't get me wrong, I listen to some of the crap that comes on the radio...and I bop my head to it..
But the fact is...alot of these rappers out now...are CORPORATE MADE.

Explain this to me... How does Jeezy come out with his first album. Yea he on the corner... in the trap. Got all these young boys out here wearing Snowmen t-shirts...don't even know what they are representing....

Then Jeezy goes on Wendy....showing of an Amex Centurian (black) Card... showing he living the good life..

Then comes out with his 2nd album...and he's doing the same hustling on the corner?? man NINJA PLEASE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

YES! Selling your soul is a bad thing... Stop letting these white men in these corporations tell you what kind of music to make...videos to make... and shit to say..
How you gonna be working for the white man.... be selling to the white kids...and then be mad when they singing along to your songs with the word nigga in it? NINJA PLEASE..the shit is TWISTED.

Like Krs One said...You have MC's... and You have rappers...

"Rappers spit rhymes that are mostly illegal, MC’s spit rhymes to uplift they people"

Why is it that on BET...the only movie that they have been playing for the past few nights is Players Club?

Why is it that BET would make a tv show series based on Gangsters??

BET needs to be renamed...the NET...the NIGGA ENTERTAINMENT NETWORK...yea I said it..

"I got shot 9 times, Im the shit.." "If you see an innocent person get killed and you report it...you a snitch.." "lemme write a book about how I fucked ALL these rappers." The idealogy of "street cred"<<< NIGGA SHIT..and its selling...

Why it sells I dont know... But what I do know is we have a society of children who dont want to just be rappers anymore... You have children...who want that "street cred" behind them... who think that the fact that Busta knows who killed his body guard and isnt telling, is cool.. who want to be video hoes.. and shake that ass for money...... or who want to be the next contestants on Flavor of Love..

This is sad but I'm in agreeance. There is a serious market for "niggas" out there. It's evident in music, TV, jobs, etc. This market sells so damn much because sex/violence/drugs, etc sells! I don't mean to sound cliche but it is what it is. If your a black female with a voluptuous body ... and you might make more money shaking your ass than sitting in front of a fuckin' PC ... then so be it. If you're a black male that is talented and make millions off of a record about sex, drugs and violence, what are you gonna do ? Stop making those records because of a stereotype? Doubt that.

And you're right Vegas, anyone can be what they aspire to be ... but are the resources available for us all? Med school ain't cheap ... neither is Law school. So unfortunately, "niggas" are limited. You gotta do what you can with the resources available to YOU.

And to piggy back on what Anonymous3 said ... the fact that children look at this like it's cool ... is even not good. The fact that they know the money and the fame that accompany these careers make 'em want it even more.
