Today I had a friend / business associate call me with terrible frustration about finding talented artists for project due to 1) TOTAL lack of talent 2) what seems to be similar to (if not so) being tone deaf 3) rhymically challenged. In other words, some of these rappers are being misled into a career path they should NOT travel. So I told him to take a look through my email for material and fortunately he was able to find great talent floating around in my email inbox.
MORAL OF THE STORY? There really isnt one, I just wanted to vent about some of the terrible music people submit.
But I do have a question... How... Why... Who... ummm, how do I say this.... (jeopardy music playing) ok, I got it.
How does a rapper get from writing a rhyme, recording it, having it mixed/mastered, and then actually submitting to to people without SOMEONE telling them that its worse than having a brand new car w/ a Bose system and no speakers... IT SUCKS AND IS POINTLESS!!!!
Why doesnt someone say "Nah, why dont you try something different" I'm not saying crush their dreams, but dammit why should people such as my collegue and myself go through the torture of listening to their music and then be forced to push them into counseling suggesting some form of music therapy?
And lastly, WHO is supposed to pick up the pieces once this rapper has been enlightened???? (shameless plug is coming)
The Commission of Independent Artists!!!
Awww, c'mon, I'm not gonna belly ache about a problem and NOT have an answer... that would be a waste of time... smh at you silly readers.
