Have you been living under a rock? What the OP said is spot on! I haven´t watched the video yet but something HAS changed. If you still love the music in the charts, thats fine. But don´t come here and start getting smart! Feel free to ignore this thread, just as I ignore all the Ubumu threads.

So you knowing some people in the music industry means you know everything that goes on in the music industry?
Yea.. I know some people in the military, that must mean I hold all the military secrets.

Is it just me or is just about every first response to a thread a counter post? Seems almost automatic these days.


You duno me so dont speak on what you think .... I didn't say i know what goes on everywhere in the music industry, nor do i care...

Knowing people in the music industry is one thing. Knowing the right people in the music industry is something altogether different.

"Illuminati" is just another word for those in the seats of power in this world. Nothing to get bent out of shape over.


you think what you want... Im a grown man, nobody has power above me, maybe you, but not me...

Funny thing though... you heard of FarhanK? My brother showed me his Music Industry Exposed series a few years back. Not that I was convinced lol, but it was good fear porn for a while, and did help to wake a few people up.

But it's surprising in retrospect that he didn't add this tape. I'm sure he would've known about it.

It's a parody of the Blair Witch Project, imagine that!

www.imdb.com...

The video itself seems like either a mock interview on the film, or some kind of marketing ad.

Thanks for posting Grifs interview. As a longtime fan of PE from before Fear of a Black Planet ( best rap album of all time) I've always found truth and a straight viewpoint from the black perspective that as a white guy would be hard to find any other way. PE helped awaken me socially, to try to understand the black viewpoint and what it's like to be a person of color in America. NWA did too but from a street perspective and KRS One always had intelligent things to say, he reminds me of a black version of Jello Biafra.

I agree with the majority of what Grif is saying here - there are powers behind the music industry that have turned a revolutionary movement (hip hop) and transformed into insipid entertainment with negative social values. I can't stand the way the N-word is thrown around constantly, it has become meaningless. The focus on materialism, sex, money and fame is straight up brainwashing the younger generations. It's musical poison.

There are no top level hip hop acts today that are speaking truth to power or trying to instill positive values. Same goes for rock/pop radio. Control of the music industry has become centralized in a few hands (Sony/Clearchannel) because deregulation allowed these conglomerates to buy up every radio station in the country. I had friends in the radio business who quit when all that went down because they couldn't stand the playlists that were pushed on them by corporate central. They say the future of music and didn't like it.

Thank God for the internet as there are still musicians out there creating great music in all genres. We must keep the net neutral and free or music will surely die a slow and painful death like watching flava flav and Ice T degenerate into TV stars.

You are right...Most pop arts are shallow,cheap and easy,that's why they are so popular.they usually emulate a past proven success,and update it to the present taste so everyone can easily relate to it....A formula that is been used by the artists around the world for ages...so it's basically repeat after repeat after repeat...But every once in a blue moon some one comes along with enough courage and talent to stand out of the crowd and think out of the box for a change. they are able to immediately grasp every ones attention and they will remain legends for ever, like ,Pink floyd, Beatles,Genesis,Rush, Michael jackson,BB king, Maddona,Tina turner,Queen,Tangerine dream,U2,Robbie williams, linkin park, Sting,Peter gabriel,Bob marley, jimi henderix and many more.

I've worked as a college radio DJ and music director for 4 different genres for 3 years now.

It's strictly voluntary and it beats commercial radio. We don't have people forcing playlists and we don't have to worry about sudden format changes, etc. A friend of mine wasn't so lucky and lost his commercial radio show because the station changed their format to Top 40.

Radio is still alive but there are a few college stations, such as the one I work at, that are keeping the spirit alive despite the odds.

The greatest thing about that whole thing, was Dee Snider and John Denver together.... That was great....


I grew up listening to mostly 60-70's rock. My mother introduced me to the 80's wuss music (journey,foreinger, styx). In the 90's when I was in my teens, I listen mostly to grunge and Death/Heavy Metal. Now today I listen to a vast array of music. My music taste has changed. I still enjoy listening to Kill Thrill Cult, Suicidal Tendencies, Slip Knot, Rage Against the Machine but man I tried to listen to some of the new Heavy Metal stuff out there today, And my ears just want to suck themselves up inside my head. I have probably been to around 900 concerts in my life. I loved going to Type-O-Negative concerts, local band concerts, and Oz Fest. Hell i even went to the CMA festival in Nashville a few times. But for the Love of everything that is wholy in life, what the hell is going on in the Pop Hip HOp world? I never really listened to this stuff, probably never will, but 90% of the stuff is either auto-tuner, synthesized, or Lady Gaga, hahaha... OH well Don't know what i am trying to say anymore....

But I really miss when lyrics were good, when the guitar would melt your soul, when the drum beat and bass line would just reverb through out the house/car. I guess it could just be me getting old, and wanting the music of my youth, but come on when is the last time someone shattered the world of music like Nirvana did in the 90's? Who is going to be that artist that breaks the mold and revolutionalizes the way we hear music? I believe music is dead, there is nothing today that would hold it own against Stair Way to heaven, Pride and Joy or War pigs.

oh the illuminati did it did they OP?

is this op in reality?

the illuminati are nobody important who do nothing but spread rumors/falsehoods about how powerful they are

run to the moderator like a good boy, quick

no seriously anyone who thinks the illuminati can do anything other than spread rumors about themselves on the internet is not in reality

if you would have said the military/industrial complex or TPTB then you would be on the right track

TPTB are not the group known as illuminati

the illuminati are a delusion try and wake up before dec21 please mate

yea like that will happen

Is music still being made, these days??? Hmmmmmmmm, that's interesting. I thought real music died, in the mid 90's. However, 80's music was, BY FAR, the best era of music and the peak of the music industry's talented artists. Today's crap is synthesized and auto-tuned. Hardly what i call "music". I mean, lil Wayne the face of "hip hop"?
