America is a corporation.A lot of flawed theories floating around in this thread. But that's ok because this is a complex discussion. I think that it's mostly true that the industry is heavily controlled, and the first rapper mentioned is a perfect example. Tech N9ne? His entire discography is homage to the Illuminati and Mk Ultra. However he doesn't get a lot of mainstream exposure, he's like a ghost. And it's not because he or any of these rappers are from Kansas City or Houston. The Agenda takes precedence.
The agenda in the 90s was simple. Fear and violence. Get people to fight each other over stupid shit. That's why the mainstream loved gangster rappers. They could influence all of us as young kids, and make the industry millions. We all wanted to be a rapper or just be a straight up thug. And I think the question should be, where did all of that influence go? Like if you think many young kids out there are being influenced by Ice Cube you are crazy. It leads me to believe the influence was given to them, by people at the top.
And the line about Drake bringing substance back to rap made me laugh. He's following the current agenda perfectly. Right now if you aren't rapping or singing about egotistical things. Like vanity, greed, and sex. Than you wont get exposure. If your art has real depth and makes people ask questions, you wont get exposure. Once you understand how the music industry is connected to so many other industries it all makes sense. It's all part of the plan to turn American into a corporation. I think we are slowly turning into Russia.
