On Studio Revolutionaries

Before we called out studio gangsters because these rappers wanted to make money off of the street culture and street politics but had no connection to the streets. In other words they had no street credibility. In my opinion, in these days we should call out those people with similar methods but who say they are revolutionaries. Today we have a new phenomenon, I call these people studio revolutionaries. These people intend to get paid in the name of the movement, but haven't done anything for the community. They are all just talk. Culture is important, and I don't intend to attack artists, I intend to eliminate those who sell out the movement and who are not willing to be accountable to the communities they say they speak for. Don't be fooled by these phonies with no revolutionary credibility.
