Everyone has heard some musical lyrics that were contrary to the life lived by the artists. Lately this has become the normal Indie formality, the fake funk trend that many haven’t picked up on, mainly the unconscious. Those who have consciously sniffed out the lying dogs have just let them get back to their regularly scheduled lies. Yes, people have grown up in rich and poor neighborhoods, but whose to say which leads to a better outcome? That is full of individual choice which can lead to multiple outcomes–good, bad, and indifferent.
We all have different cultural backgrounds, even when they are very similar. This is what makes individual choice so important. Music is an artists individual choice–to make a certain genre, artists style or look, and especially lyrical content. Lyrical content is one of the most important because it has such an impact upon everyone, it’s the ears and heart connection with the listeners.
Within the Indie music industry it’s important to bring the heat and/or swag and many times this comes with truth wrapped in fairytales. How is it that yesterday you had twenty dollars and hustled your CDs on the street but your cd is full of lyrics about how you living the million dollar lifestyle? Bullshit at its finest! Making a living by baiting up youth and adults alike to be just as ignorant. Yes, you have to make a living but if you have to bamboozle people to do it then you deserve every fuck you get on the way–Lyrical Imposters
Just as Kanye West stated years ago, there are many lyrical imposters walking around hustling a fake lifestyle that they may never reach. Faking who they are just to create fake fans who think they have solidarity with a fake somebody. Lyrical imposters come in all sizes, genres and colors but let the exposure begin. This may only be the tip of the ice berg but it’s a subject that keeps being swept under the rug just like many other major ones.
Let’s wake up an find content worth listening to. Lyrical content that brings about change and movement. This is not to bash all Indie music Hustlers, in fact this is just the opposite. People have to wake up and become aware of what they are putting in their brains. Especially content that are full of fantasy and no real content. It’s time to end this era of Lyrical imposters by bringing the real indie hustlers to the fore front exactly what we tend to do here at Music Matrimony.
