    Black people don’t own battle rap now smh! We need to stop it. Its for everybody no color barriers..

    • Say what?!…what

      what he is saying is we are the CEOs for now not like everything else in the world that you are just a worker punching a clock making little compared to the owners. look at any pro sport league, business, or any other revenue generating medium… not saying that we own it literally

        YOU TOOK THE WORDS RIGHT OUT MY MOUTH. YOU RIGHT ON

    • Caught Choosen

      House Nigga shut up. Walmart, Apple, John Deer, Google are owned by white people so why cant little ass Battle Rap not be owned by Black People? Cause you a punk ass house nigga that happy getting bread crumbs from whitey.

      • ThoughtZ

        Ignorant man!

  • Fuck your agenda.

    lmao… this nigga goes from being Malcom X to Malcom Salesmen… get this nigga’s whack ass sales pitch the fuck outta here and send him to a free sales/marketing course…. May throw in a civil rights class just to teach this nigga how to sell more bullshit to the black culture.

    Co-sign…This is the reason why Smack has to pick up live stream/PPV as an additional revenue stream. To hold on to your artist you have to make enough paper to pay them. Live stream + a significant sponser = concrete footing in this market place and the ability to pay your talent…Spread love is the Brooklyn way!

    • TipOfTheIceberg

      smack already pays the most by far. even tho kotd does ppv, their artists don’t get paid what smack artists get.

      • Major

        livestream opens up an additional way to pay them so why not? They already own the larger share of the market so why not?
        The majority of these mc’s make btwn $1500-$3500 a battle. This platform will seem more attractive to other mc’s if there were more paper on the table. Would u spend $9.99 to sit at home throw sumin up and watch sm4 live? As a fan of the culture I know I would my G. Now multiply that by half of the subcriber to this site. Thats real paper.

    Anti-industry is a great message for hiphop….keep it independent and don’t let those vampires feed on you!! That being said, the principles of hiphop are creating something from very little resources.

  • DRE

    I like the message and the shirt lol. Smack get your shit together, you out for profit nigga anybody can see that but you fuckin up the culture at the same dam time.

    • KingReese

      Funboy with his useless opinion again, nobody cares. FUQOUTAHERE

      • DRE

        Look at u, stalking me like the bitch u are Mr. Mom lol!! Go change a diaper.

    Neoliberal economics at its finest. Create an economic system that commodifies all forms of human expression and socialization, including urban Black culture. Once the commodity matures in value (Product Marketability) it can be made subject to the market economy and those who benefit most from that economy (generally not Urban Black folks).

    The best thing we could all do is support Smack, help him to be hugely successful and keep it rap. At least we can get at smack. If the plutocracy get a hold of it, battle rap will be owned by some geriatric white man who thinks “Head Ice” is a treatment to relieve a viagra overdose.

    this blog is just another chance for a random black nigga that we dont know to try and sound intelligent. How will white people own anything in 5 years? In business theres something called “first mover”..meaning typically the first mover in a business will be the leader. Smack already has what 240k subscribers..their brand is solidified and respected..only way he loses control is if he sells his brand..so the only way whitey will own this shit is if smack sells out when the big money offer comes..if he doesnt smack will always be the leader because he has already gained the eyes of most..and its growing at a consistent rate…these niggas just want to blog to sound intelligent lol…

    • MONEYMAKINVON

    These comments are ignorant! All he’s saying is that “WE” collectively need to be more responsible in regards to “OUR” actions. If “WE” continue to fight on stage, make dumbass comments on camera, & shit like that, it won’t be long until certain criteria will be forced upon “US” in order to even have an event which ultimately takes away the power and/or full control of how “WE” decide how “OUR” events should be handled as fans, artists, & platforms such as the URL.
    .
    Prime example is now because of this math vs jones issue I’m sure certain measures (on top of what was already a difficult situation to begin with), have to be set-up which will no longer be “OUR” deciding factor, but someone else’s whether it be the venue owner or city or what have you. Keep fucking shit up and before you know it “WE” as the fans, artists, & showcase platforms such as URL will have to jump through so many hoops just to get anything going it won’t be worth it in the long run.
    .
    Long story short:
    The more “WE” continue to fuck up at “OUR” events, the more power “WE” take away from “OURSELVES” in regards to when, where, & how this culture should move forward as a whole & grow.

    Why do black people act like their this different type of breed then get offended when people treat them like it? Shit is lame as fuck. Blacks aren’t the only muthafuckas these crackers are after. Look at what’s happening over in Syria and shit, I’m Hispanic and can’t even walk down the block without getting harassed by cops. We’re all victims b.

  • Ahmad Willis

    WHAT YA NIGGAS KNOW ABOUT “MAD IZM” FT. KRS ONE? THIS BROTHER SAID SOME TRUE SHIT! ALL THAT TOUGH MENACING GUY ACT ISN’T RESPECTED, ANYONE CAN DO DUMB SHIT BUT IT TALKS A REAL MAN TO UNDERSTAND THE POWER IN UNITY & THOUGHTFUL BEHAVIOR.

  • Ahmad Willis

    I THINK SOME PEOPLE ARE TAKING IT THE WRONG WAY LIKE HE’S PROMOTING ANTI-WHITE OR ANY NON-BLACK RACE BEING INVOLVED IN BATTLE RAP. HE’S NOT, HE’S SIMPLY SPEAKING ON THE FACT THAT RIGHT NOW THE PEOPLE DOING THE GRINDING & ARE IN THE TRENCHES SHOULD CONTINUE TO BE PROACTIVE & POSITIVELY WORK TOGETHER BEFORE A RANDOM OPPORTUNIST WITH NO REAL SENSE OR APPRECIATION OF THE CULTURE INFILTRATES IT SIMPLY FOR FINANCIAL GAIN!
