Back on my “state of the industry” soapbox, but this time I’m letting Bilal do the talking. After fulfilling his obligation with Interscope, he is now with an independent label that he says allows him to “experiment … and do what’s inside of me and follow my own ear and spirit.” He goes on to say that Interscope would “totally dumb down everything for mass production and mass sales.” Dumb down? For WHO? Mass? Who is that? That’s YOU (or US)!! That must mean that they think we’re DUMB!! I hate it when someone attempts to insult my intelligence!!
I’ll say it again.. support our independent artist and always support those that are consciously trying to deliver pure and uncut “good” music. Go purchase Bilal’s new LP, Airtight’s Revenge.
