CANT PARTY TO THE TRUTH
BY : M. GIAMMONA
Party party party let's all get wasted. The all too familar words of rapper Gucci Mane which basiclly sums up the new generations attitude and outlook towards life. Real hip hop with subject matter and content has been replaced by nice beats and catchy hooks. Have times really changed so drasticlly? Somewhere between men in pink and skinny jeans lies the problem. But fashion isn't the real issue although it comes with the territory. The real issue is the music industry being watered down to control the weak minds of the public. The music is designed to make u piss your money away and forget about reality because you can't party to the truth. Listening to artists such as Lupe Fiasco and Mikkey Halsted dosen't encourage people to throw their money away but promoting education is no fun. Speaking the hard truths of the realities going on world wide dosen't give u that carefree feeling of nothing being wrong. So while other countries rise up against the higher powers we drink, party, and spend money we dont have hoping that someone will step in and save us. Face it hope and inspiration dosent even make the news let alone money, and we all know if it dont make dollars it don't make sense so somehow Waka Flocka makes sense.....While others like Common are labled concious rappers for offering enlightenment and encouragement. The sad part is these are the very ingredients our youth so desprately need. Very few artists offer substance to the masses becauce they wont recieve a record deal off that. So instead we swagg and surf our way through the industry making meaningless songs about how much money we have and cars we never seen and cant spell. When the truth is majority of us are broke, got too many bills and not enough income to cover half of what we accumalate monthly. But who wants to party to that?? I mean what are u gonna do walk in the club, throw your hands up like "heyy im broke and my babydaddy aint shit!" Oh wait thats been done...wink
