WHITE MUSIC FOR WHITE PEOPLE…i don’t care what NOBODY SAYS…i’m calling it for what it is
“Thrift Shop” by Macklemore and Ryan Lewis jumped to the No. 1 position this week, beating Justin Bieber, Justin Timberlake and Taylor Swift. Earlier this month, the single went platinum with more than a million copies sold.
“Thrift Shop” is also the top single on iTunes and is the most successful track off “The Heist,” the first studio album from Macklemore and Lewis that debuted at No. 1 on iTunes when it was released last October.
Videos for “Thrift Shop,” “Same Love,” and “My Oh My,” have received more than 81 million views on YouTube.
i REFUSE to call that shit “HIP-HOP” when that shit has damn near NOTHING TO DO WITH BLACK PEOPLE.
cats these days just cop your swag and take it to the bank, and nobody says shit.
BLACK PEOPLE, listen closely…WHITE HIP-HOP FANS ARE MAKING PEOPLE MEGA-STARS WITH YOUR MUSIC, YOUR STYLE, YOUR CULTURE, YOUR HERITAGE, YOUR FOUNDATION…
THEY ARE ACHIEVING SUCCESS LEVELS UNATTAINABLE TO YOU WITH YOUR OWN CHILD; HIP-HOP.
i don’t have anything personal against MACKLEMORE (or Eminem) – BUT – i DO take it personal when HIP-HOP gets HI-JACKED, EXPLOITED, and made a MOCKERY of by certain / specific individuals.
