  • but kanye is an interloper in the fashion game. he's exploiting it. oh i'm famous for something else so let me jump in there and go to the front of the line based on my fame/notoriety in another industry. so kanye's gripe aint legit like this. nip is a guy that is hip-hop and is speaking on problems in this game. nipsey is speaking on real life and exploitation of something he's really put his whole life and soul into. kanye is mad that he cant go over there and pimp a quick buck, just like we mad when someone comes and tries to pimp off this. an actor trying to rap or an athlete trying

    kanye actually didnt use his celebrity ... he interned for mad years and work @ the bottom of the industry to learn it ... plus with the success of the yeezy + the success of his albums .... i mean the resume is right mane !! he def tried to do it the right way the humble way ... just like he did when he FIRST came into music then folks forced him to be arrogant about it cause he KNEW he was better than what people were making him out to be ....

    sn its the same ish your just not aware because the hip hop community is not that deep into the fashion "business" .... camron was just one the breakfast club radio show saying he was thinking the same ish back when jay and dame did rocaware ... he felt 6% was disrespectfull as someone who created the brand ... but he did say he later on found out thats an industry standard ... but so is 360 deals in 2013 ... which is why i SAY ITS THE SAME ISH ... most of us are just way in the dark when it comes the business of fashion ... kanye is so far ahead of the game on this .... its like nipsey trying to do what he is doing today in the 90s ............

    imo kanye realized what he sacrificed when it came to music business and he doesnt want to do the same when entering into fashion ......... just like nipsey he wants to make sure he comes out on top ... partner shit NO CHECKS !!!!!! ASSETS !!!!!!! in my nipsey hustle voice

  • "They said, “Just be happy with the hood and happy with the fame of it and how it’s gonna make it look. It’s gonna be big. You’re gonna be the biggest nigga out of the West,” and all this other shit. Sell that to a ho, my nigga. I’m a man."

    Real shit

    That’s where I get offended because let’s restart this whole situation. The metrics and the gauge of success, and of impact on the culture. It don’t got shit to do with Billboard, it don’t got shit to do with SoundScan. It don’t got shit to do with any of these platforms that the business created. This shit is a culture"

    Amen

    Truth be told I ain't buying a $100 album but it's about ownership, as much as Birdman sounds like he has Down syndrome I always respect the business model Cash Money Records stood for (not the not paying their artist part). I always respected how Dame rode, pause, for his label.

    Real shit

    I agree. He made a great a point the iphones etc. Niggas will pay 50/60 for Madden and not blink. They'd probably even pay 100 for a Jay album, but when a "new" nigga say give me a 100, its a problem. I salute this dude.
