imagine that you're a rapper who just dropped a debut album. your shit got a lot of critical acclaim, but it really didn't sell well at all and most heads ignored it. What would your next move be?
Would you continue to focus on making art, knowing that you're never going to be a big artist and most of your albums will flop...
or would you go all out commercial and get as much money as you can, even though the quality of music will suffer and a lot of your albums will most likley be trash?
