Napster: The Real Deal
The music Business is a Joke for challenging
Napster. Napster allows People
the chance to hear Material before it comes out. How many times have folks
spent almost 20 dollars only to get two good songs? Also the business also
overcharges folks on the prices of discs. Courtney Love & Prince both have
put the Biz in Place. It's only about Marketing, No Talent Hacks & Formula
Driven. I wish for the day when a Real Artist blows up on the Net & Does
away with the Business, as we know it. People in General don't care what the
Label is they want the Artist or Group. Also the Business has always been
unfair To African-Americans.
It's long over due the Crappy Over-Rated
so-called Rock-N-Roll Hall of Fame.
If you have an Impact you belong. Chuck D. Deserves Mad Props because he is
right. The only folks Complaining about Napster are the ones that got by in
the old System. I feel that if your Work is Good Folks will buy it but if
you only have 1-2 good songs you should give away your work. The Business
owns the copyrights, only a few Artists ever get their Own Work. It is
Modern Day Slavery. It wasn't that long ago that Sampling was done at will
or a make believe Group Like Milli Vanilli or fake Vocal Artists were the
norm. Numbers were inflated on Many Acts. It's been a Running joke for a
long time. More Artists such as Courtney Love, Prince & Chuck D., among
others, are needed in the fight. Ani Defranco has been very successful
without the powers that be. The Grateful Dead didn't fall off with giving
away some of their music. Who wants to pay for MTV only Crap? You don't get
back full Refund for a Clunker Disc.
Also the Business is only about sameness.
It's cool to DownLoad Something
New & Different. I hope & Believe that more Napsters emerge 'cuz this Notion
of selling half-talented Artists is a Bad Joke. If You Want a Fair profit
then put out Quality Music. Metallica & Dr.Dre Need to Worry about Making
Quality Music Instead of being pimped By the Biz. Both Acts have fallen Off
To Me. People Who Scream About Napster aren't Making Good Records. If you
are as Talented & as Good as you say then nobody can hold you back. Folks
Burn Many Discs already. You can't stop Technology. It's a given it's gonna
happen. New Groups don't get their chance unless they hit Big & Even then
they may end up like TLC. How fair is a Business that allows a Group to Sell
10 Million Records but yet file for bankrupty? That's A Monopoly of Ill Will
& Fraud. The Business Needs to Be Overridden. If an Artist like Prince Calls
the Business Foul then it really stinks. 'Cuz they haven't done well by him.
They Pimped His Black Album onto the backlot to a Person back in 91 for
almost $13,000. They make a joke of Bootlegs. If Music is Placed out Of
Print Where are You Gonna Go to Get it? Courtney Love put it all Down on
Sonic.Net. She Broke the Numbers Down to a Science. Chuck D. is dealing
directly with the Net.
How many times have you gotten a disc
with a Different Version of a Song &
Been Disappointed? It's one big joke bad joke. These Lame Teeny Bop Groups
Doing Lame Takes On Black Music is a Bad Racist Joke that needs to Stop. A
Place like Napster has No Labels go to the Artist or Group that you want. No
Country, Rap, Pop, R-N-B, International Etc. Labels are B.S. Ray Charles
Proved that Point 40+ Years Back. Artists deserve to Be Paid. The Companies
aren't taking care of their Acts. They are cloning them & pimping others on
that Formula. The Charts are a Joke. SoundScan is a One-way Street. Where
was it when Michael Jackson was ruling the Stores for Years? Does it chart
mom & Pop Stores? No. Hear what you want when you want you don't need a
Business To Dictate your Choices. So Many Lame acts are promoted yearly &
Gone within Months. The Reason Why the Business is Afraid & some of these
Artists is because they aren't putting out Quality Recordings. Where are the
Real Up & Coming Artists? Online that's where. The Business isn't about Art.
It's Strictly About Sameness.
