Statistics show that 70% of rap is bought by white people. Me personally,I don't buy rap but I do listen to certain artists like common,Nas and lupe fiasco. I mainly listen to R&B and neo soul.

Right, But we as a people do not speak out against this. These artist are selling the most violent and socially destructive stereo types about us. They are getting rich off the backs of or young people. These gangster rappers influence the social development of our young people who willing live up to these stereo types. Wake up people. The uncle toms of the 21st century are gangster rappers. He sells us this gangster idea. While he lives like Bill gates. He is a business man pimping our community out.

I really think it's a simple solution to all that.

The media giants only have control over the artist from pressin CD's. If we started a website that would sell cuts in the form of MP3's, sort of how it's done now, but without giant corporations. Known groups or upcoming talent could upload for a small fee, or the site could take a small %. You could sample a clip, then buy what you want or whatever.
I'm sure we got alotta talented people in web design or whatever, with the resources already.There would be no need for promotion, as it would be internationally known. To me that looks like the start of some ill shit right there. Oh, and never release our COMPLETE control, and finally stop ONE source of the propaganda cause I'm convinced its the giant corporations who force things the way they are now. They do it for money, control, to make our own people dislike it so they can claim it as their own, to stereotype our people all over the world to justify harsh treatment of us, to continue the gunplay and disunity, to keep us weak, to leech and steal and on and on. The giant labels would'nt have shit but weak BULLSHIT to sell... F*CK EM. Can anybody see how that may fail? It would also keep Africa1 from kickin our asses. lol

I think if we made enough noise about it, we could by pass the corporates. The artist have long list of groups they are not allowed to offend. Somehow black people never made the list.

we really only need to make noise about it with black folks, people who are actually for getting something like that done. Maybe people that think this way on this site could copy & paste that post to other black sites to get that thought moving around in our community, and then who knows? It could be surprising.

I have a little web design skills (but am more into Internet Marketing) and am willing to contribute if this is something you really want to do.

BUT...

I must stress that it would HAVE to be only a contribution to a collective work. I refuse to take complete control and responsibility for the project.

I say this because I think this is a great idea.

Maybe there are others who would be willing to contribute as well.

Winter time is amongst us and time is starting to finally free up a little for me.

Sounds like a plan...

Let me know...
