I named this one Shambles ..
A got great feedback from the last email but people wanted me to elaborate on the "SITUATION" aspect ... since that's the NEW WORD now. "I got this SITUATION over here" ..
Remember ARISTA .. They had a structure of EVERYONE working for ONE common goal witch was BUILDING A BRAND ... ARISTA.
Whitney, Toni, Usher, ect ... NO bunch of watered-down "SITUATIONS"
The one SITUATION that came out of that was BAD BOY. NOW, THAT was a SITUATION!! Cash Money@ Universal, No Limit @ Priority, Death Row @ Interscope .. THOSE where SITUATIONS!!
Greatness at its best! No one man shows ... Everyone STILL working to make the parent SITUATION work so the NEW SITUATION can prosper
Let me ask u a question .. When do we go back to a DJ being a fuckin DJ .. A&R being an A&R, a STREET TEAM being what it was . STREET TEAM (meaning INTERNET SAVY now) ...
We are ALL over the place. Who at the label is content with branding the LABEL? We have labels that are KNOWN for what they do & are NOT PRODUCING at all because EVERYONE has their OWN AGENDA.
POP labels & employees still get it.
They stay in their LANES, work in their cubicles, leave the HOLLYWOOD SHADES OFF, not trying to be the gotdamn artist too & and do what they NEED to do to make the BUSINESS SUCCESSFUL.
A lot of these cats don't go NO WHERE but
"HOW can you have a SITUATION in a SITUATION that's NOT SITUATED?
If the SKELETON/STRUCTURE of the building is in SHAMBLES, how will your OWN SITUATION work ...
Ding, Ding, Ding, Ding ... it WON'T.
Don't just "get by" at the job .. Do the JOB!! Its still a few that do they job with what they have to work with ...GOD Bless You.
So many that KISS ASS enough to "Get BY" so they can introduce ANOTHER situation .. Wow.
How can you be a LEGEND with ONE single .. 2 LP's .. & a bunch of GOSSIP behind u?
Urban artists, be AWARE that YOU can not live the ROCK STAR LIFE that POP/ROCK artists live .. I don't give a fuck HOW tight your jeans are.
Once u do some DUMB shit & the Microscope is on you, that's it .. They are ALWAYS waiting for the next semi-dumb move. It doesn't even have to be serious, as long a they catch u doing it ... Welcome to TMZ
Some of u niggas thing that "that's sexy" for you to be on TMZ with the BUFFUNERY, but it doesn't work that way for US, niggas.
No bouncing back from drugs like they do. No bouncing back from rape, fighting your mates, dealing with minors like they do. YOU are NOW a spectacle, a sideshow, the industry clown, the dumbass that's newsworthy of the bullshit & not your talents ...
Flavor Flav single handedly fuck up the WHOLE LEGACY of PUBLIC ENEMY (known for empowering or people & other minorities) ... Now this clown future models & ex strippers sayin they "love this nigga" & getting outta caskets with gold grills???? Chuck D gotta be rolling over in his GRAVE & he ain't even in it yet (SMMH).
YO!!!!!!!!!! What the fuck are we DOING???
We don't even hold up our LEGENDS... MJ, Luther, James Brown, Marvin Gaye, Eartha Kitt .. WE GOT REAL LIVE LEGENDS that were JUST AND BIGGER than ELVIS but noooooooooooo ... That nigga had a BUNCH of issues but the STILL HONOR him faithfully since 1978!!!
OURS .... they just pass on .. No day for them, no nothing .. But they even got YOU standing up for Elvis & John Lennon .... Wow. Even got u niggas ridin" for QUEEN!! Ain't that a bitch!!
Oh yeah ... THEN we HELP them tear down OUR artists ..
Chris Brown is DEFINATELY not the only damn artist that had a altercation with his mate but they LET YOU tear them down ... Notice, white audiences just waited for the outcome ... We did all the fuckin talking, gossiping & bashing for them & then won't even let him clear his name ..
