what wrong with it? the south is more party oriented whats wrong with that? why is it wrong to dance to music? why does every song have to be super lyrical?

you really gonna dance to some damn immortal technique? that fool is boring. A balance of both is good, which is what i have. to say the south is not hip hop or to say u have to be super lyrical to be hip hop is stupid.

The label gets most of the money from sales, a new artist gets chump change for each record sold. if you are more established like a 50 cent you can negotiate more money caue you have already proven that you can bring in money.

owning your publishing rights is VERY rare. this is why artists venture into other things like clothing lines, alcohols, etc.....

Nah it dont have to be super lyrical i agree wit that but for me it at least has to be above a third level of english which isnt asking much, i agree that there's a place for commercial stuff but it shouldnt dominate

if you dont want it to dominate then start buying ur favorite lyrical rappers. if you do the labels will sign more lyrical rappers.

labels cater to the audience buying the albums if wu tang is selling they gonna get more ppl like wu tang.

and with all the members on this site i dont see why wu members dont go gold every time

not the first album. like i said as a new artist you only make a few cents each album sold. so say ur getting $.9 per album sold (real numbers for a new artist depending on popularity) and you sell a million records lol. do 9 cents x 1 million

true story support the concerts. buying their album just makes sure they dont lose their record deal lol and puts them in a better position to negotiate money so yeah.

its not dying now
its always dying
there were rappers who were proud to be underground in 96
they dissed the mainstream
its always gonna be like that
you just dont remember the trash cause it gets thrown out
how many cd's did coolio sell?
who remembers him now?
hes not important to hip hop
"mainstream" is just whatever the fad is at the time
all the "hip hop is dying talk" is just hogwash
and so are the people who try to defend commercial rap
sure, some of it is good. There are talented artists that can actually sell recods
BUT
are you gonna tell me, that lil wayne is better then doom?
ti is better then bronze nazareth?
majority of commercial rap sucks
it always has and always will
hip hops not dying
and
mainstream sucks

you be lucky to get $0.9 on a major label, independent maybe, but a major people usually get $0.3 or $0.4, cats need to get control of their publishing, get their own labels and shit
only place you makin money is the tours

Will everyone please stop with these threads. Hip Hop being dead is all matter of opinion. It depends who you ask. And if you ask me it's alive and kicking. There's so much hip hop out there and so many choices from underground to mainstream. It will never die as long as there is a demand for it. Which there always will be.

You totally missed the point. Everybody fucking knows that "underground" MCs are better than mainstream ones....lyrically. Right...mainstream sucks...thats why millions of people buy their records and that shit gets bumped in clubs all night.
