then you got C styles, jesus christ. people refuse to tell him he sucks cause they wanna see a second porn video. and he somehow gets passes for dropping songs in the off topic sub forum, which is a smart move considering the music forum is dead.
then theres twitter, where anyone with some hundred followers and a DAW thinks theyre gonna be famous. same goes a bit for tumblr. I cant stand it man. you cant post a good link of your jam on twitter cause no ones gonna gaf. theyve seen 50 of those before your link saying the same shit, ABOUTTA DROP SOME HOT SHIT. they cant give all of those songs a try. music is just so watered down and wasted now, it sucks
No doubt there is talent somewhere within these bases but you really cant get too much exposure trying to do it the same way as everyone else.
Another thing, nowadays I feel like A LOT of people are trying to pursue music as a last minute "I suck at everything else I need something trendy" resort. Today at school some girl Ive known since middle school had my boys name and number in her notebook. and when I pointed it out she said "oh you know him? I told him my bf makes beats so Im gonna link em up". You know how many times me and my boys all together have heard somebody "makes beats"? not taking away that there is potential decentness within the racks of ideas, but EVERYONES doing it. when did this shit trend so hard before? I remember when I was a kid in high school playing guitar, not EVERYONE was tryna pursue music. mad kids lowkey tried rapping but producers didnt exist, so their bars over industrial beats life really didnt make it.
Am I really gonna give up on music? Im not sure cause its been a passion of mine for too long. but best believe Im not resorting to annoying everyone whos seen the same shit attempted dozens of times daily. I dunno what my niche'll be if I ever find it, but Im starter than that. you dudes make your graves bigger, fine by me.
and whatever happened to other forms of art? how come no one I know is painting or acting anymore? does no one realize the greatness of acting and other forms of art out there? Im just really tired of music being watered down and being in the same category as bandwagoners. Fuck this. not scared of competition, its just social networking has made it too easy for kooks and other dumb acts to get out there and now everyone thinks they got a chance of being signed.
