This man referred to Kendrick Lamar as a "shoe spokesperson" and suggested that articles about Kendrick are "click biat." What do you think about that, /mu/?
It'll make /mu/ kiddies mad, but he's right.
Kendrick Lamar sold out to Reebok and plastered that shit all over his music videos for TPAB.
Kurt Cobain or any previous artist would be crucified if he turned his music videos into Nike commercials, but Kendrick gets away with it because of poptimism and a reluctance to challange the top pop artists by mass media.
Kendrick's corporate affiliations completely betray his political message. He can talk the talk all he wants, but when he is helping rich white dudes that exploit cheap labour overseas line their pockets, he's part of the problem
He's probably a little bitter because he feels his music is pretty badly overlooked, relative to how good it is. I think this is because guitar music is passe right now, while hip hop and electronic music are more mainstream than they've ever been. Realistically he's probably 60% trolling, 30% trying to drum up talk about TA by trying to beef with someone way more popular, and 10% serious.
If you think he's really serious about what he's said, go read TA's twitter for a bit and you'll realize he's mostly just taking the piss.
If Kurt Cobain or any previous artist did this no one would bat a fucking eyelash.
Amerifats love their cheap labor so they'd rather let people be exploited by overseas labor. Then hike up he cost of shoes for that sweet sweet profit.
nah I feel patrick is legit bitter on these things.
he went on a tantrum last yr when p4k and anthony panned most lament then copped out with the lel im jking shit.
Being born in 1995 != growing up in the 90s.
The 90s were counter-culture and anti-corporate as fuck. Take this from someone who was a teen in the 90s. I can guarantee you that if Nirvana, The Smashing Pumpkins, Radiohead or whomever endorsed a major corporation they'd be disowned by their fans.
I was born in 1992.
You're still absolutely wrong, because they'd still have loyal fans despite being endorsed by a major corporation.
Also today ya got your counter cultures and anti-corporate fans and you still got edgelords saying "that doesn't work".
