ALSN (Annoymous Light Skinned Nigga) asks:
Do you agree or disagree with interracial relationships between men and women?
I knew this would come about. Only those in them ask about them. Just recently (3-4 years) have I got next to the idea of Caucasian/African American relationships. It’s really not my place to judge, honestly. I know I love and perfer ethnic women. I gotta thing for the dark skinned sisters and the South East Asains (Bengali, Tamil, Sri Lankan etc). But you didn’t ask that. If there is a legit connection and you’re really feeling the person, hey you know, enjoy that companionship. The Ayatollah has spoken
Profitless Producer asks:
Why aren’t rappers willing to pay for beats any more?
Very good question, I get this quite often. Fact of the matter is, the game is flooded by producers now. You have to gain merit before you can command currency. Ironically you have to give enough away before some one pays for it. What do people in hip hop pay for? Names. There are thousands of dope MCs that would jump on a track for free, but that can’t guarantee you notoriety. Same with beatsmiths. It’s all about brand name. Same reason Oreo cookies are 5 dollars and Hyrdox are damn near free. Same cookie, different name. The Ayatollah has spoken.
The Nice One asked:
Whats more important the delivery or the actual lyrics? Or is both needed to really be great? Cause its starting to look like all you need is a crazy beat and a good hook and nothing else matters. What does the Ayatollah think?
To be great? You need the total package. To be fly by night and hot for the moment? Just follow the status quo. If you’re content with sounding like everyone else and totally ignoring virtuosity, that’s the way to go. Think of every GREAT song. Disregard the genre. You love the beat, the hook, the words, you can even do the background vocals on que. There is a reason only a few achieve that level of greatness because its rarefied air. At the end of the day substance will sell records and provide longevity. The Ayatollah has spoken.
