in case you didn’t know, White boys BEEN outselling Blacks (in Hip-Hop) since day one.
let’s go back to 1986 – a time that is known as the GOLDEN AGE of Hip-Hop.
this is where a White rap group began to outsell NOTABLE Black Hip-Hop / rap groups for about a solid DECADE.
some of the most MEMORABLE rap albums of ALL TIME were easily outsold by a White rap group.
for example: (they outsold)
it took a DOUBLE ALBUM (10 YEARS later) from two of Hip-Hop’s BEST (R.I.P.) just to TIE the White group in SALES.
in order to make a long story short, just know that the numbers tell the tale…the tale that repeats itself today, even locally. wait, ESPECIALLY locally.
Circa ’86 White groups BEEN dominated the Hip-Hop / rap charts – so let’s not play dumb and act like this is NOT the case – OR – try to JUSTIFY it or downplay it. Eminem took over from there (shortly after) and ran SO FAR ahead of Black artists / rappers (sales-wise) that there’s no logical explanation that doesn’t HEAVILY involve RACE.
it’s WRONG, and more Black people need to know and be clear on the facts – period.
