[ARTICLE] Politics As Usual: The Last of a Dying Breed

Rap music has, and always will be, controversial. As a genre that has mirrored real life events of its storytellers for years, violence, drugs, sex and women have remained an integral part of maintaining their stories. But when do we draw the line at what we will and will not accept? In light of the recent controversies surrounding rappers Lil Wayne and Rick Ross, it brings up the question of who’s responsible for being the voice of hip-hop when the journalists are hardly speaking on the subject.

Since the inception of file-sharing programs, the title of hip-hop journalist has been re-appropriated into the role of a blogger, which at very best, includes a 500-word paragraph about a song, album or video. And while bloggers are the rotating wheel in rap music, consistently pushing new music, they’re not the active voice of the community – journalists are.

When it comes to controversial content, whether it’s evokes deep-rooted emotion and/or history or whether it’s just a slip of the tongue, the hip-hop community reacts. With Twitter blowing up, blogs hits heightening and scholars left scratching their heads, every reaction turns into the blame game.

Jamilah Lemieux, from Ebony.com, wrote an article on the recent Rick Ross controversy, stating: “And if it weren’t for a bunch of ghetto-fantasizing, pseudo-intellectual White boy rap bloggers who decided that Ross was the most important hip-hop act since Lil’ Wayne, I think he’d still be “hustling” loosies and porn mags to inmates.”

While I chuckle at that ridiculous statement, considering neither race nor class have anything to do with blogging or distributing online music, I can’t help but wonder who is to blame? If not the artist or the label, do we blame the fans? The bloggers? Those who are too scared they’ll lose their credibility with said artists, as well as fans, for speaking out on it and proceed to post the song anyway? Perhaps we should blame the journalists, who are so enthralled by fitting in and obtaining that invite to the next listening session, that they’d blatantly disregard saying anything at all.

“Beat that p*ssy up like Emmett Till…” – Karate Chop (Remix)

Lil Wayne is known to spit enough fire to burn down the entire forest, and he sure did with this single line. Unfortunately, many people are not aware of who Emmett Till is. They’re unaware that he was a 14-year old African-American boy tortured to death for whistling at a white woman. They’re unaware that his body was so severely beaten that his mother kept his casket open to show the malicious crime. They’re unaware that the men who murdered him went free with applause. But they are aware that “Karate Chop” is a club tune, that Lil Wayne is known to say ridiculous things and that it’s all over the blogs.

“Put molly all in her champagne, she ain’t even know it / I took her home and I enjoyed that, she ain’t even know it.” – U.O.E.N.O

Likewise, when Rick Ross suggested drugging a woman and raping her, it was swiftly defended by fellow artists and fans, but not without raising uproar about rape culture and rap music. With the popularization of the use of Molly, more so today than it ever has been spoken about publicly in hip-hop culture, the idea of proudly stating that you drugged a woman and raped her is beyond me. But the community also understands Rick Ross as a man who’s career is based on fallacies, and whether this was a lie or not, how much does it still matter?

“Its Sad Cuz Dat nigga Jojo Wanted To Be Jus Like Us #LMAO” – Chief Keef on Twitter (9/5/2012)

And while both of these incidents have been wallowed over and discussed in the past month, XXL went on to make Chief Keef a part of their Freshman Class 2013 cover, a titled adorned with ‘credibility’ and ‘success.’ But let’s not forget that Keef’s rise to fame came at the heels of a house arrest, a catchy track called “Bang” glorifying gun violence, and of course, the above mentioned Tweet that shed humor on the murder of 16-year old rapper, Lil JoJo.

—–

To deny the fact that these are, unfortunately, every day events is ignorant. To suggest that nobody can talk about them is redundant. But what’s most alarming is that our journalists are too scared to talk about it, leaving outsiders to (once again) infiltrate on our culture, place blame on our music and suggest that rap is the catalyst for future rapes and murders.

It’s not the first time someone has rapped about Emmett Till, not the first time someone has alluded to the act of raping a woman, and certainly not the first time gun violence has been glorified. However, it is seemingly the first time the major voices of the hip-hop community has actively brushed off these acts and damn well justified them. While we can place blame on the artists, managers, labels, bloggers and fans, it’s the job of the journalist to make sense as to how these events not only play into rap music, but its effect on the hip-hop culture in its entirety. It’s time to wake up, drop the industry politics, and speak up.

    excellent, very well-written piece. a journalists duty is to speak on the topics that affect their community. far too often, some shy away from the controversy in order to serve purposes far removed from what their jobs require. its time for those who have a voice to speak up.

    It’s so “politics/business as usual” that these lyrics are totally ignored by the mainstream media while S-storms are stirred up calling Beyonce’s “bow down, b!tches” a misogynist lyric instead of considering that the B-bomb was not aimed at women squarely, but a general pejorative.

    Back to rap for a second, I still take issue with pushing the idea that rap is meant at all times to be the artist’s position on society and how s/he’d operate in it IRL as opposed to simply being a character in a story song. As an MC/poet myself, if I had to ALWAYS be literal, I’d be completely boxed in and robbed of creativity.

    Now saying that these rappers need to stop hiding behind the explicit lyrics sticker and be more responsible, that’s a different, better focused and targeted conversation.

    There is a lot of truth to what Jamilah Lemieux was talking about. In light of Pitchfork interviewing Keef at a gun range, one can’t help but wonder if there really are some overt motivations for large music outlets (let’s be real, Pitchfork’s one of the biggest independent music journalism voices going) who choose to shape and essentially “box in” a very living, breathing, reflective culture like hip-hop.

    What I take issue with is that deeper introspection within the context, message, and meaning of lyrics almost take a backseat to the hype-feeding echo chamber that is rap journalism.

    Look, there are some wonderfully capable writers out there who make some real meaningful points about hip-hop culture, and they have no choice but to throw em up on blogs, like Erin now. No hate at all, Bad Perm is a great, purposeful outlet, but it isn’t the XXL or The Source. Yet the most context you’ll ever get from either fucking publication is “OH MAN LOOK AT THIS CONTROVERSIAL STUFF, ISN’T THIS SOO CONTROVERSIAL YOU GUYS?”

    It goes back to the notion that as a journalist, especially if it’s of a topic that directly affects you, your community, or anything remotely close to your life, you SHOULD be asking those tough questions. If you really believe in hip-hop culture and what it represents to you, you have the right (and if you fancy yourself a journalist, the obligation) to ask Rick Ross, “so why do you think it’s okay to allude to sexual assault in your lyrics?”, just like you have the obligation to ask anything else that’s on your mind.

    I really hope some rap journalists who actually get a cheque cut from writing (a privilege unto itself) read this article. Great piece, Erin.

      A guy’s testosterone level starts to fall after 40 turns

    This is exactly how a referral campaign should look like. This is proof why ebooks and giveaways are not working. People want physical products in exchange for a share and the product must be something that’s worth sharing. I once offered a Samsung Galaxy tablet for those who get the most people sign up for my mobile app and no one shared the website. I am not sure if the tablet was the only reason for people not sharing it, but it definitely played a part. Maybe it scared people off that only one person could have won it. Next time I will offer cheaper products for the first 10 persons and see how it goes.LikeLike

    We released a WordPress plugin based off a very similar method a couple of weeks ago and have had similar results.. one user collected over 300,000 from a single prize launched with only one email blast and one tweet – the webpage wasn’t even configured with any images or design. As this article mentions in the last paragraph it’s hard to attribute success to a specific variable and replicating it is very much a guessing game. It’s clear these guys put in a lot of work to ensure a successful campaign which likely attributed to the success.From my own personal observations of a number of similar campaigns recently the key is getting enough momentum to create a tsunami – it’s like a small wave in the ocean that gathers more and more momentum until it’s being shared every 30 seconds for 7-10 days straight.. but like a wave if it dies off before it becomes a tsunami then results may not turn into a life changing event.. but it’s still one of the fastest ways to grow a list!LikeLike

    Thanks for the article, Tim. Is there any way to duplicate this process via WordPress that you know of? I am using an affiliate Plug-in & I am not sure if it’s the same as far as getting people to sign up & measuring their rate of sharing. Any help would be much obliged. Thanks!LikeLike

    First of all, thank you for contributing this article (and to Tim Ferriss for posting it). I found it very helpful.Because I am always curious as to the other factors involved, would you be willing to elaborate on any other advertising you used during the pre-launch phase? You mentioned no PR push (which is interested and runs counter to a lot of advice you see coming out of YC and other startup advisors, although understandably also counter to you “ground-up” referral campaign). Still, really no Google AdWords, no social ads, no AdRoll or similar? Thanks again for writing this article. ~Elizabeth ChabeCEO, High Touch CoursesLikeLike

    I’ve been coaching bands for many years, and can confidently say that for this to translate to your band, several things need to be in place: (1) Know your Ideal Fan extremely well. Methods such as Michael Port’s Red Velvet Rope Policy work well for this. (2) Interview your ideal fans. Methods such as the Lean Canvas and interviewing for it, like laid out in The Lean Startup or The $100 Startup, work extremely well for this. (3) Brand yourself very well in everything you do, based upon your core message and what you know both conveys that message to and attracts your Ideal Fan.At that point, you’ll know precisely what to offer potential fans, including where and how to offer it to them.LikeLike

    This is just what I needed! thank you guys! I recently moved and relaunched my blog from one domain to a brand spanking new .uk one which am really happy about!At the moment I am writing an eBook on blogging and the technical aspects of it and was thinking of selling it for say $15 or so! I had thought about giving away the first few chapters for free for a signup.I had just set up mandrill and mailpoet together and just set up a simple subscribe form in my sidebar with an image of my new upcoming book that would take the user to my download page for the first three chapters.However the more I think of It the more I think I should set it up like this with a subdomain spashpage! And offer my complete book to people who refer 5 signups!Many thanks for the inspiration! I will be sure to let you know how it went!– Phillip DewsLikeLike

    The new Zune browser is surprisingly good, but not as good as the iPod’s. It works well, but isn’t as fast as Safari, and has a clunkier interface. If you occasionally plan on using the web browser that’s not an issue, but if you’re planning to browse the web alot from your PMP then the iPod’s larger screen and better browser may be important.
