So...you're saying rap is about money? Hip Hop is about competition man, and it's always been. Every rapper says at least once that they're the best. This is from Kool Herc and afrika bambaataa battling in the park to see who has the loudest system.no its not. you think Drake has more money than cassidy because he raps better than him? bitch please, niggas aint getting deal/radio play because of battles, this isn't 2003 homie. all that "who's better" shit is for the birds. Don't talk like you know what "rap is about".Rap is about competition.
Are you dumb? If you can get paid to do something you love doing, why not do it? That's the way these types of people are looking at Rap. Not as a fucking business.if they didn't do it for money they wouldn't sing a deal/put it out. bottom line. i know plenty of musicians that are in their 40s making shit in their basement never releasing it. THATS doing it because you love it. Joey and Kendrick wanna get paid, theres nothing wrong with that, but we're not gonna sit up here and act like their on some righteous "save real hip-hop" bullshit.^ Its not about proving a point. It's about what drives you to make better music for yourself and the listeners.
"Rap is about money"
Thats like saying nba players play basketball just for the money. Im sure some do, but the greats play for the love of the game and for the competition.
I know its almost 2013 but I like to think some rappers make music from more than just a pay check. Usually the ones that are making the best music, in my humble opinion.
Yea, I think I know a thing or two about Rap....or should I say HIP HOP. Its more than just music, or a business, its a culture that stated out with Bambatta and all the battle raps in the park, block partys, mc's, freestyles and etc.... Competition is just part of that culture and that aspect of the culture still exists today.
If you choose to look at the Hip Hop/Rap game strictly as a business than thats you. You have a point. But I'm pretty sure Joey Badass and Kendrick Lamar don't see it that way.
i guess this is where we draw the line between artists and entertainers.You clearly don't get what i'm saying. But yes, they are looking at it like a business. Chief Keef signed for millions and made an album called "Finally Rich". do you think this motherfucker gives two shits about rap and its "what he loves"? Its about a dollar these days bruh. Of course there's people out there that do it because its there passion and they could get paid doing it, but that doesn't mean its a majority. I Guarantee you that 80% of "Rappers" are doing it for the money. Thats what rap is all about nowadays.Are you dumb? If you can get paid to do something you love doing, why not do it? That's the way these types of people are looking at Rap. Not as a fucking business.
“those who break the rules are scum, but those who abandon their friends are worse than scum.”
this isn't the 80s boy. yes, i am saying rap is about money. Thats why niggas rap now. They're not trying to prove a damn point, they're trying to make a million.So...you're saying rap is about money? Hip Hop is about competition man, and it's always been.

I hate a huge portion of this generation of rappers and musicians. Barely any soul or creativity in anything they put out. Materialism or ranking doesnt make a good song. Sorry, not sorry.this isn't the 80s boy. yes, i am saying rap is about money. Thats why niggas rap now. They're not trying to prove a damn point, they're trying to make a million.
and people wonder what the fuck is wrong with rap. people like this who come in with this mindset which unfortunately sells in some cases. what about the music b. what about the music.
Don't badmind me.
