NAME GAME / FAME GAME

the title speaks for itself.

A LOT of ‘life’ is based on a simple concept – the NAME GAME / FAME GAME.

yeah…and i’m filing this under SHIT I SAY EVERYDAY –

i coined this PHRASE – in MY CONTEXT.

PEOPLE OUT THERE WILL TAKE YOUR CREDIT FOR ANYTHING THEY CAN.

it’s almost as if you have to carry around a POCKET RECORDER or a VIDEO CAMERA and hit RECORD each and everytime you say something ORIGINAL – because if you don’t whoever overheard your GENIUS will take your lines and RUN with them.

that’s why i don’t like to even share information with people…because they either

A – TAKE CREDIT FOR IT

B – DON’T GIVE YOU CREDIT FOR IT

or

C – CAN’T RECIPROCATE THE GENIUS

BUT – let someone ‘FAMOUS’ say the same exact thing as you basically said, and that BITER’S tune changes all of a sudden.

see…people only RESPECT STATUS…if they see someone on TV, they see STATUS…and when they see STATUS, they HUMBLE themselves.

…but when someone that doesn’t have that T.V., MONETARY, or SOCIAL status says something EQUALLY or MORE genius – they DOWNPLAY IT, COPY IT, and LEACH off of it.

NAME GAME / FAME GAME at it’s finest.

in closing –

WATCH WHO YOU KEEP AROUND YOU – because motherFUKCERS think they’re SLICK.

don’t fall for the SOCIO-POLITICAL BULLSHIT trap that so many people are caught up ON and caught up IN…that shit is SMOKE and MIRRORS – all day.

at the end of the day – IGNORE the IGNORAMUSES; that’s one of the best ways to keep your hair from prematurely going gray.

    can there be an answer d?

    there must be artists to work with who do reciprocate this elusive genius.
    i don’t think everyone has all bad experiences with collaborations.
    some maybe.
    it’s true that often after the fact, the parties involved each have different memories of who contributed what part and what name and what beat, etc.

      i wasn’t even talking about the musical sense of NAME GAME / FAME GAME – i’m speaking more in the GENERAL / SOCIETAL context.
