Ask Jacky… Keep Preaching Jacky!April 17th, 2012
I NEVER HAVE WRITTEN TO YOU BUT I JUST HEARD YOUR INTERVIEW WITH CARLOTTA!!!
I am speechless! Because everything you said, I have been complaining to my husband! I kid you not, I swear, just yesterday my husband and I were having a discussion about the music industry and how music is not what it used to be.
My husband is into hip hop. He came to this country when he was 9, so he didn’t grow up with the music I did. Let me tell you about myself, I am born in ’83 and am a scientist, I am Haitian. I LOVE MUSIC! If my parents weren’t so strict, I always said I would go into the music industry. My IPod consists of: old Jackson 5 music, Steely Dan, Talking Heads, Michael McDonald, Al Green, Billy Joel, Ambrosia, etc. I have all different types of music! People always described me as an old soul, I say no, I just know good music, and modern music (most of it) is garbage!
I just wanted to write to say thank you for stating what I have been screaming about for the last year: all these little kids born late 80′s early 90′s don’t know anything! They are so lost! And I feel bad for them because unless they go and inquire about the origin of music, they will NEVER be informed.
The highlight of Coachella was Dr Dre and Snoop Dogg…and a hologram performance of Tupac, and guess what? I’m no physic, but I predict the Jackson’s will soon be embarking on a global tour complete with an MJ hologram. Don’t believe me.. Ask Jermaine.
The point is this – once upon a time, black folks were never known as nostalgic people. We viewed white folks as weirdos for telling us ‘ Elvis Presley lives’. Now, we are in that same weirdo bracket. Know why? Because we can’t let Tupac, Biggie and Michael Jackson go, making us no different than a Kurt Cobain fan.
There is a reason blacks have become nostalgic to music. It’s simple – today’s ‘talent’ are not creating good or lasting product, so we’re reminiscing past music.
That’s exactly why I won’t be surprised if Puffy sets up a tour with Biggie. The same people who would go to a Drake concert, would attend – making it sold out too. Know why? Because the masses are not in tune with reality.
Hope I answered your question!
