‘I don’t think the music business is dying. I think we’re just experiencing technology and we have to pass new laws, eventually, to change how music is being distributed.’ – Fitty
What a little cock mongrel! Like really! Like I wish I had Seth and Amy by my side, and maybe even Tina, and we could say together “REALLY?” Why is it that every time “The Man” starts to get handled by “the people”, he finds a way to buy the soul of an influential party, one who will impact “the people’s” ability to combat “The Man”? Apparently, Curtis “sheisty” Jackson is going to be helping undermine the current atmosphere of music “piracy”, think of him as a bounty hunter or repo man, hired by the RIAA to get creative with solutions.
Check this little nugget 50 Cent purports to be a fundamental part of the problem:
‘It’s easier to download a song that’s three minutes long, probably about three or four seconds for you to download it, it’s easier to steal.’
That doesn’t even make sense, it’s actually easier for Joe Blow to download a song legally off the ITunes store than it is for that person to hit Google and actually find a pirated copy. Fact is, piracy is rampant amongst bloggers, musicians, and real sonic heads, but I assure you that your aunt and probably most of your cousin’s couldn’t download a pirated copy of their favorite album if I had a Glock 17 to their head, trust.
Here’s a crazy idea I’d absolutely love to pitch right at Fitty or RIAA; how about focusing on the fact that the industry is still trying to push archaic music delivery systems on us? Perhaps once you put some of your bankroll behind marketing your products in consumable forums, then you can focus on being on top of technology the next time it takes a leap as it did between CD’s and vinyl and as I’m sure it will for electronic distribution channels.
Either way, I got two things to say. First of all, 50 Cent is a walking problem, a virtual punching bag used by bloggers and mainstream society to either feel good about their wretchedness and/or internal superiority complexes. Secondly, and more importantly, here’s 50 Cent’s last album, for free, pirate the fuck out of it. The seas are calm in ZIF bay, Arrr!..
