So Soulja Boy last week blamed "Crackers" messed up his music creativity. He goes on and on about how he is like an actual musician. But what if Soulja Boy came out independantly in 2007 without Interscope?
Soulja "Piano" Boy
Would Soulja Boy taken music lessons and actually use all notes from "A" through "G"?
Soulja "Hipster" Boy
Or would Soulja Boy made a breakout album that infused world music
But wait........ didn't he come out with Crank Dat before signing to Interscope??
Checking Soulja Boy's wiki:
In March 2007, he recorded "Crank That" and released his first independent album Unsigned & Still Major: Da Album Before da Album, followed by a low-budget video filmed demonstrating the "Crank That dance".
So looks like Soulja Boy's music was "ignant, made for BET" before Interscope stepped in. Can't pull the Race card when he pulled the Ignant Card from the start.
So there was another MTV Movie Awards that happened last night, and people were hooked onto the staged Eminem teabagged skit. I still don't understand why people continue to watch a fake awards show that is one big 2 hour fest of promotions for upcoming movies by the presenters. It's just one big 2 hour commercial with fake awards.
This brings up a thought I had: if the majority of people keep complaining that MTV doesn't show music videos and have too many reality shows, (Kinda like @JV) then why do YOU keep watching the network?
I always hear stuff like "I hate watching MTV but I like to see how bad the shows are (you don't do Cocaine cause you want to see negative effects, to which MTV has the same negative effects)" or "I hate watching it but they are going to premire a music video/trailer (Just be patient and wait for it to go online)." The fact that you still contribute by watching the channel, you help them.
People complain that the MTV Executives are stupid and keep having dumb programming. However I think they are smart because they are feeding stupid people trash in which they pay Comcast to watch trivial and unoriginal stuff like "Bromance."
So lesson here: You have the right to complain about MTV, once you stop watching it.
