Why does everybody wanna say their a buisinessman?
For real, Im sick of that shit. It was cool when jay-z said it years ago. And for him it probably was a personal thing. But why isnt it cool anymore to say your an artist first? I mean, look at usher, "Im a buisinessman before im anything", or Slim thug "im more comfortable behind a desk". Or fucking anybody else in the game. No one even wants to call themselves a rapper. Their like "im a CEO bitch!" even when its ceo of some bullshit ass bootleg record label or production company thats only putting out your own album!!! I liked it better when artists would be like "I just make music I love and im blessed to have people connect with it" or some shit like that. cause thats the truth! Its not like the music industry makes more money than less glamorous investment oportunities. I know rappers always say theres only 3 ways out of the hood and all that. But you dont see many nba players being like "im a buisinessman first, all this athlete shit i just sort of fell into". DO you? Mabye you do, but if dudes playing pro basketball were openly saying they dont give a fuck about basketball i think people would have a problem!I just think people should be about their buisiness, but not neccesarily talking about it all the damned time! And this is a different topic, but its corny how your average rap fan is now so aware of the innerworkings of the industry. Like game name checking sylvia rhone on his album. Like come on, sylvia rhone aint gangster. Anyway, thats my rant. thanks for reading it. any comments?
