Again, you a artist. You're biased, embarassingly so. What is an artist who doesnt share music? If he aint here to profit from music the fuk is he here for?
WE giveth and taketh away. He had next bc WE said he did. So now if we say fuk em, its fuk em. Ask Ja rule, ask 50 post Massacre, ask Dr Dre w/ Detox, ask Nastradamus era Nas, ask post Vol 1, sunshine Jay z
And if u wanna look from the other end of the spectrum, ask Papose Nacirema Dream, ask Saigon Greatest Story...any angle u look dawg, history dont lie. The nggas is not above completely vanishing from relevancy even when he choose he wants it
The artist mindset is 'man i got this fire, once they hear it they'll love me'. Man fuk your fire. An artist is NOTHING without fan connection. NOTHING. Fans will run thru a wall for artists who they see and feel love this shyt: spitta, wayne, jay w/ albums every year, z ro, etc. He bout to learn.
All white people or officially banned from doing hip hop. This shit is to deep for me didn't drake win a grammy a year before. And a whole slew of black artist has won it years prior. Kdot definitely deserved album of the year last year.
But macklemore represented more than just a great hip hop album that's why he won that grammy.
