Exploiting a Scandal to Sell Music…

dupree myspace

I just saw this video from Jay Smooth of Ill Doctrine. He discusses the fact that Ashley Dupree (i.e. She ‘worked’ with Elliot Spitzer) might get a record deal. Put it this way, I think the music industry is so desperate to make a dollar they will do anything including exploiting a scandal. I love Jay Smooth’s take on it and how it relates to Hip hop and the music industry. How do you feel about it?

SWPL vs. SEBPL

school daze

As some of you know, one of my favorite blogs is Stuff White People Like(SWPL). Well now someone created Stuff Educated Black People Like (SEBPL). Is it me, or is there a trend in blogs that is about to explode. Just like SWPL, SEBPL is a humorous look at stereotypes in a different light, and just like the SWPL, I can relate to some of the topics. Topics such as weddings, moving to Atlanta (too close to home, literally), and jazz are some of the things educated black people like.

Here is an excerpt on Neo Soul

For those of you who don’t know what this genre of music is about, I have included a short description.

Neo soul (also known as nu soul) is a music genre and an umbrella term for current soul music. The music is usually a hybrid of 1970s-influenced soul music with influences from jazz, funk, hip hop house music. The term neo soul was originated by Kedar Massenburg of Motown Records in the late 1990s. Neo soul’s audience tends to be underground, preferring that the music favor underground credibility and soulfulness over mainstream popularity. Some musicians who create what is described as neo-soul prefer to disassociate themselves from the tag, due to the term’s buzzword-like usage. Some of these artists simply refer to themselves as soul artists.

Neo Soul music makes educated black people feel like they are getting in on music that regular blacks don’t know about. The most popular neo soul artist is Erykah Badu….even though some of us may feel she’s a little bit crazy. Some educated Blacks have distanced themselves from Ms. Badu because too many people know about her. Neo Soul allows these educated blacks to feel they are the only people who know about these artists and are the only ones educated enough to understand this music. Once an artist “catches on,” it’s time to move on to the next undiscovered talent.

Other popular neo soul artists are: Angie Stone, Musiq Soulchild, Jill Scott, Macy Gray, Alice Smith, Goapele, India.Arie, Davina, Pru, Raphael Saadiq, Alice Smith, Jazzyfatnastees, Adriana Evans, Ursula Rucker, Rhian Benson and Martha Redbone. If you want to take an educated black friend to a concert, pick one of these artists. You will definitely be loved by them automatically. You should even comment on the release of a new CD by one of these artists. It’ll show how well you understand educated Black culture. You may even get invited to a listening party. Then, you’ll really be down with the educated Black crowd!
