    It's not though. And I won't allow a provocative title like that compel me to read the article.

    This has everything to do with Black fans accepting Bullshit music from Black artists. It was the Black listeners that put records sales, popularity and materialism over talent. This was the next step. Now anyone can get in. No talent needed. Just a fan base.
    The bold is a big reason why hip hop is in the shape it's in. But that's another topic. The thing is that now whites no longer need that black cosign to get on. Whites no longer have to even listen to blacks to get their hip hop fix. It's only going to get worse from here.

    I agree it's only going to get worse. Blacks are supporting these white artist just as much as whites.

    2012 was a great year for Hip Hop but I agree

    Word to q-tip verse one album 2 this shit goes cycles. Vanilla Ice got hot then in then in the 90's everlast and other white cats got hot. The only longstanding top tier mainstream white act is em. And lets be honest when you look at prices for his tour they are the same or lower on resale and face value than the jay and b tour or the drake vs. lil wayne tour.

    There is a photo of mac miller and dude had indy sucess but still is trying to make it mainstream as even he has a niche market. Iggy has one hot song but her album flopped. Being white can get you 15 minutes of fame. But even the white fans that support white artists don't really stay loyal in large crowds to one specific white rapper not named em.

    G-Eazy’s highly anticipated new album, “These Things Happen,” which came out Monday, capitalizes on fame he earned opening tours from hip-hop legends Lil Wayne and Drake (whose mother is white).

    “Whiteness is actually becoming an advantage,” says Jam Donaldson, who has produced documentaries for BET and who runs the Afro-aware pop culture blog hotghettomess.com.

    “White artists aren’t just adding to the universe of hip hop,” Donaldson says. “They are on the way to replacing black hip-hop artists. As the business model has changed, large record companies may feel that a white rapper ... may be a better bang for their buck.”
