    Music is no longer pure as I have seen it far too often where songs are recycled like a new version of cereal.

    If you do not know what I am referring to, just have a look and listen

    Kelly Clarkson - Already Gone




    Beyonce - Halo





    Toni Braxton - Yesterday




    Gospel version
    Y'anna Crawley - The Promise



    All of these are the same "songs" with different words to them, well for the most part... at least three of them had the sang context in lyrics.


    Now let's fast forward...


    Keyshia Cole - Trust and Believe




    Yea, another Braxton in the mix again

    Tamar Braxton - Love and War




    Frankly I like the songs... but I'm just saying


    Respect

    Music was never pure, especially since people figured out it could bring fame and turn a profit centuries ago.

    Just saying they are getting so greedy now that they are getting sloppy.
    Not even trying to hide the watering down anymore, simply chopping them up and spitting them out.

    Near blatant

    The pop hit factory is hilarious and sad.

    Remembers when Sistar Badu created a buzz awhile ago when she asked/commented:

    "How y’all gone stand by and let our music turn into pop techno cornball *** music. We don’t own our music no more. Come to think of it, did we EVER own it? when I say own our music , I’m not talkin bout the artist I’m talkin bout the people … let me be quiet. I wanna hear from the young people? easy for me to complain about this techno-pop cause i have a taste for something else. but how do u feel? These rappers ought to be shame of they **** selves, I’m talkin bout the mc’ s rappin over this pop techno music. I believe in pimpin the system buy got ****! not like this. #pop-technosongs. I like the idea of no distinction in race when it comes 2 music, but SOULkeepers, U dont give up the boom bip and the hump 4 the payday. I love house and techno as a side dish .But now it’s served as the main course AND that’s ALL u gone get. like chittlins in the back house. I love music PERIOD. just not ready to say goodbye to the boom bip and the hump .. kinda painful for my generation to see. just strange 2me. Yes, no1 wants 2B poor again. artist have2 sacrifice integrity of the music sometimes 2 make ends meet. this is understood.but gotDAMN now. if you’ve never tasted good p*ssy your satisfied with *** hole. (that’s terrible ain’t it .) lol"

    Not my problem, more like their problem, and the problem of the younger generation coming up that feel so disconnected at times.
