They Don't Respect The Artistry
I keep seeing all these attacks on what Kanye West said. Recently, many musicians came out from the old school saying Kanye shouldn't speak since he can't or didn't play a instrument. Do they have a point? To me, it seems that this is yet again an attack on hiphop as a whole as if a Rapper or even an R&B artist has to play an instrument for an album or at all? I guess that means people like Micheal Jackson, Patty Label don't matter either? Should a rapper or singer feel some kind of way when people say their vocals and wordplay aren't art or since they can't play a xylophone, they shouldn't speak on artistry? Is a person less creative for bringing other people in the room to create the sound in their head? Does this mean that the imagination of people that can see the big picture yet need others to create it doesn't matter? That's like saying a movie directer ain't ? .
