Yea!!!! lets celebrate FILTH!
its the Obama Way!
But moral and cultural relitivism teaches us that all cultures are equal to one another and that it is unfair to judge.
I am an opera and classical music fan. You would not believe how many folks claim rap and hip hop artists are equally as talented.
executive produced by Shakur’s mother, Afeni Shakur.
Afeine Shakur sound like a DISEASE!!
Next Up...The SO Called Life and TIMES of Scoop Doggie Poop!
He's got more posthumous projects going than a workaholic vampire.
The movie tentatively to be titled “Deadpac Fershur.”
Now playing a double feature with The Tray-Tray Story.
“executive produced by Shakurs mother, Afeni Shakur.”
Doesn’t that mean that she’s fronting the money for this opus?
Exactly. Even in an industry and a culture that celebrates meaningless and silly things, I've never understood why this guy got turned into some legend. Even if you assume rap music can be good (which I don't but that's another issue), there are other "Rap artists" who had much more of a musical impact than him. And then he got shot in some gang dispute -- Martin Luther King, he ain't.
Celebrated cop killer Assata Shakur is his step aunt, that is possibly why the lefties celebrate him.
I had never listened to his junk until recently. I saw an ad for a show about him so I looked up his so called music. That is not music.
I have heard that producers come up with the money and executive producers were used to attract others to the project and raise interest in the movie.
Darn, I’ll be busy doing nothing, so I don’t think I’ll have time to see it.
I sense thats the idea.
all that dope money..that launched the “rappers”...
now its “rap money” launching a movie.
I know who he is, but if offered $1M cash I couldn’t name a single song he did. None. Is this a matter of he’s famous because he’s famous? Is this another cult of personality item, where the brain dead masses follow an artist because he looks cool, is controversial, or simply because a record company is pushing a perceived marketable product?
What I do know is this. He died over some sort of argument with another artist. Shots were fired, and he assumed a well ventillated room temperature. So what’s the big deal _ doesn’t that happen daily in Chicago and Detroit?
This guy is on my short list: “Why Does Anyone Talk About—Or Listen To—This Black Guy Looser?”.
Including, but certainly not limited to, Kanye West and Al Sharpton.
“I have heard that producers come up with the money and executive producers were used to attract others to the project and raise interest in the movie.”
That makes sense.
“all that dope money..that launched the rappers...
now its rap money launching a movie.”
So it comes full circle; “dopes” will spend money to see it.
and it wont just be the slum dwellers
Ive never gotten how “rap” found such a huge following across socio economic boundries so to speak.
Millions of white kids in baggy saggy pants listening to morons bragging about misogyny , sex dope an violence?
my my my
The record companies loved rap, because rap records are cheap to produce.
they dont require much in the way of a studio...or engineering beyond the computer they’re being recorded to...
And rappers are a dime a dozen, you don’t have to pay them much at all.
“numerous grammatical and punctual errors speaks volumes about you”
