Erykah Badu's Twitter Rant....

A couple of days ago Erykah Badu had some choice words on the music industry of today along with rap and basically how its going "Techno' Check the rant...

How y’all gone stand by and let our music turn into pop techno cornball ass 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 damn selves, I’m talkin bout the mc’ s rappin over this pop techno music. I believe in pimpin the system but got DAMN! 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 ass hole. (that’s terrible ain’t it .) lol

....Very valid point



  1. You know I feel her and I agree with her but this generation has flipped th script and are rapping over tecno beats now.But before we crucify artist on the cross lets think of 2 things....The artsit are employees of the label just like someone is an employee of wal-mart.So when the label tell them they have to do something.Than to top it off these artist need to eat to you can be great in the underground and "true" hip hop but broke as a motherfucker

  2. The music does not have to suffer

  3. I think erykah is saying be true to your art form and don't water down your music

  4. and I agree with Erykah
