Re: Why I hate mainstream music?
Reminds me of 50 Cent, had one of the biggest buzzes I ever seen before signing a deal (actually it was his second deal) and basically ruined Ja Rule's career.
But, when he began making more "mainstream" music, it's like people turned on him, calling him a "sell out". At the end of the day, the whole purpose is to make money, not only for you, but more importantly the label. They're not going to sign you, under the expectation that you're still going to cater you your underground fanbase, while somewhat ignoring the pop crowd.
Don't get me wrong, I hate what some of my favorite artists have become but beneath all the mainstream shit, they still have some gems laying around. You just have to explore and maintain an open mind, give everything a try.
