Meaning

A number of artists, old and new, have already come out in protest of this. At the Pusha-T listening party, Kanye put it perfect when he called out the “culture vultures”. Even Hip Hop fans are starting to complain about the irrelevance of current Rap releases coming from major labels. Look no further than Rap’s current sweetheart, Kendrick Lamar, to see how desperate fans are for someone who even halfway resembles a serious artist.
