Sometimes they are told how to do it. Other times they don't have a say in what the final mix sounds like or how it is going to be packaged and
marketed. They have no choice, they signed a contract and that is what they are referring to by saying they sold their soul.
So the metaphor for soul is limited only to an artists creative will? Alright, we'll agree to disagree, moving on...
I think you misunderstood. I don't know anybody who says they have sold their soul for a job in a corporation either. That is the point.
The door man at Sony NY doesn't say he sold his soul to Sony Corp in exchange for his job. If Sony is in the business of buying souls why didn't they
I hope you see why i might misunderstand here; you personally know artists who sold their soul, not businessmen or anybody else, that's what it
sounded like. I guess you meant artists we all see on t.v. or something. My mistake. And to what end is this a point? Weren't we discussing something
And where does a doorman come into this? Weren't we talking about public figures that are made widely recognizable by many people who can be used to
spread an idea through whatever medium they aspire to become famous in?
Strawman how? You said a big money corporation being referred to as the devil is the same as a kid, underling, or spouse referring to their parents,
boss, or partner as the devil; i respond by saying that the average strict/overbearing parents, really mean douch boss, or insane and clingy,
potentially violent spouse do not own, manage and finance a trillion dollar market consisting of various products, music and musicians made widely
known to a worldwide population that heavily promotes, once again, drugs, sex, violence, apathy, vanity, selfishness... Those parents, bosses and
spouses are called devil because of those separate instances, and sometimes they are called that for reasons subjective to the people calling them
that (parents are VERY strict, boss took away there weekend, spouse is stalking). Giant music corporations have been metaphored as devil since the
inception of giant music corporations for the same consistent reason as stated above.
You can't please all of the people all of the time. That is why there are dozens of genres.
???Was i talking about musical genres to net in maximum amount of fans, or marketing strategies for individual artists
to net in maximum
amount of fans, the marketing strategy which is the mystery of illuminati devil worship and occultism? Try harder, dude. This attempt was quite
Because they are supposed to be secret. Only those in the know can understand the symbols. Even those trying to expose them are caught up in
that little game.
Are you responding to the question of why marketing teams won't go public with devil worship/occultism for their celebs to gain more fans and profit,
or are you responding to why its not made public period
? We already know that it's supposed to be secret (though with they way they plaster it
everywhere, and the apathy/ignorance of the average american, i doubt they care). So what aspect of the subject are you responding to? Not a
rebuttal, just seeing what your'e response is going for.
I have known a few gang bangers and the diversity in musical tastes would surprise you. I think they could easily see the similarities in their
organizations and other secret societies. They are after all clandestine, have their own laws and hierarchy and are exclusive.
Other acts get marketed to other segments of the population in other ways and trendy is trendy and symbols are all about that.
I guess you missed the part where i said least likely
to listen to those non-rap artists. I mentioned them because they too contain loads of
occult and satanic content in their videos and music, but these artists are not of subject matter that the average banger might
idolize(hoes,cars,money,slangin,bangin). I do see the possibility of street gangs seeing themselves as a or similar to a secret society of their own
code and morals; that makes plenty sense. But you left out the ones that incorporate anything similar to satanic worship and occultism; something
within the secret societies being discussed here that contains it's own rules and laws. I'm gonna go on a limb and say none
Do you really think that people see the symbols and just like it? Or was it years of marketing(a proven science), that has granted its wide appeal?
How has it become trendy? Who has the power and influence to make it trendy? Eyes, pyramids and other occult symbols in children s cartoons
do they like watching the symbols as adults like wearing it?
Your not the only other person participating in this thread. I was commenting on the topic of the thread in a general manner.
Well from what i read, you were directly responding to my reply. More combat rolling from you...
