OK...I admit I have a Massive Ego. But I have to have it for what I do. Just because a person has a large Ego does not mean that the person must be a
slave to that ego. When you talk about the Music Industry...and I am in it...I can agree that some songs can Get People Off on a sense of Power.
This is fine if not carried to extremes.
If I am driving down the road and a Heavy Rock song comes on the Radio such as say a Metallica or AC DC song...I will most definitely be getting an
adrenaline rush as I listen. That does not mean I have to act in a Violent Fashion to the Songs effect upon me.
The same can be said for a Hip Hop Gagsta Rapper Song. It is the individual who is at fault to react in a Violent way although I am well aware of the
Music Industries Love of Publicity as this East Coast/ West Coast thing has gotten WAY OUT OF HAND! There is also a difference between having a songs
lyrics encouraging youths to behave in a manner that is violent.
OZZIE wrote songs...as Heavy as they were musically and Powerful in the feelings they gave to his listeners...with lyrics about LOVE and ANTI-WAR such
as the Black Sabbath song WAR PIGS demonstrates.
Here is a quote for that song...Day of judgement GOD is calling...On their knees the WAR PIGS crawling. Begging mercy for their Sins...SATAN laughing
spreads his wings!
This is apposed to many Gangsta Hip Hop songs that have names such as COP KILLER or words that denote the Black Minorities struggle with Fair and
Equal Treatment...but when the Lyrics turned to direct verbal challenges and attacks upon Fellow Hip Hop/ Rap Artists all for the sake of Publicity
but this took on a life of it's own and a REAL WAR began over an Artist Jumping Labels or Mafia Style Determination over who could do what and with
who as well as where when and how. As well as development of Territories of what Label an Artist could sign with depending on where they were
from...it just completely got out of hand and even fans were choosing sides.
It is unfortunate that Minority owned Labels fell into a Profiling Style Violent Behavior that was not discouraged from the beginning by Majority
White Music Industry Money Makers and Marketing. What really made things over the top STUPID is when both Artists and Fans started the Gun Carrying
Sideways Handgun Pointing Hold which for anyone who has been trained in Weapons...as I have...can tell you that this decreases your probability of
actually hitting your chosen target.
The Band...TOOL wrote a song that had lyrics about this subject....continued....Split Infinity
p.s....I will have to represent the profane words of the song.
