You see the glitz and glamour, the bling and wheels but little do you know, it’s ALL a facade. This is not to say that, there aren’t any ‘rich’ rappers as most of them are SELF made millionaires with no major label.
There are plenty of rappers who built a following on youtube and made millions of dollars. Fact is it comes down to their rapping ability making them money through only them internet.
Going through a major label is a chumps way, selling your life away. Artist with true skill do not need a shit load of money forced promotion to be heard. If an artist on a major label makes $1million, that label gets $5million.

Ever since President Obama announced that he supports same-sex marriage, people have been up in arms about it. Rapper Jay Z and actor Will Smith both stood by the president as many celebrities and public figures.
Rapper T.I. was asked how he felt about same-sex marriage..
"Just to speak honestly and being frank, I don’t care."
"I think that if a matter doesn’t affect your daily life, you shouldn’t take a hard stand on it. If it’s not something that directly affects you, if it doesn’t affect you, what difference does it make to you what other people are doing with their lives?"
My thoughts exactly. I really don’t have much to say about gay marriage nor would I go out of my way to push the issue. I feel that I should be entitled to ALL of my basic rights as the next American should. Marriage Equality is only the icing on the cake.
It’s one thing if you don’t believe in same-sex marriages but to go out of your way and say that you wouldn’t vote for President Obama solely on that issue is stupid. Why is same-sex marriage such an issue with people (who claim to be heterosexual) anyway? It’s does not affect your personal life. It’s not your damn business.
I don’t see myself getting married to anyone but I do believe people should be protected. There are too many horror stories I could share of everyday good people (who are gay) who lost it all because they didn’t have the law to protect them. Your partner is dying and you can’t even see him ‘because you’re not family’. His family (who wasn’t didn’t approve of his ‘lifestyle’ and casted him out) decides to take all the two of you have accumulated in your relationship. They can literally take it all.
People think of gay marriage and automatically want to get ‘godly’ on the subject but yet they can’t even get it together in their own marriage (see infidelity, babies out-of-wedlock, adultery, etc.) They don’t see same-sex couples who have been in relationships for decades. People who pay their taxes. People who fight and die for this country. I could go on…
I plan to vote for President Obama and I feel that he has bigger fishes to fry. People still need decent jobs. Gas prices are still too damn high. Those should be the issues people should care about.
I am rambling but it just pisses me off…
