Nothing wrong with Cardi. What's it to you if someone else likes her? lol

Well, its not the end of society for god sake. Every era has patients like Cardi B. It's just something that will come & go... it has zero impact on anything beside hype and poor entertainment. Cardi B ain't shit.

After years past, and hype is gone... no one considers MC Hammer as some influential musican or anything, but a person responsible for some of the worst records ever produced... listen Too Legit...

Nah, you probably just have taste. lol Kids tend to listen to whatever their peers are listening to in order to blend in with the group, and often what the popular radios play to death until everyone aligns to it. A real musical journey starts when you go off on your own personal tangent, which tends to happen much later in life, depending on how independent the mind of the person is.

Nah. I think every generation has their bullshit music. At first I was dissing Cardi B but she has an audience and she's doing her thing. I'm not into her music but to each his own. It's like several years ago when cats like Chief Keef and Young Thug were all the rage. That shit comes and goes. And besides, they're making music that is popular now and has no substance. Ten years from now we will not be talking about Cardi B. Trust me.

I agree with this message.

There's plenty strip-hoppers on Love and Hip Hop from which she resides.

I can only name three from those shows that actually have "IT". Cardi, Remy Ma and K. Michelle.

Sure is and I like The Monkees too. Is liking country supposed to be bad? lol If you folk don't like Cardi or anybody else on the radio. Don't listen to them. It's not your business who someone else likes, or question why they like them. Why do you like what you like? Many people don't like your Prince's music. So what? People are free to like whatever music they choose. It's not the job of snobs to police someone's taste. I don't understand music snobs. It's music, it's for people to enjoy.

On a funk musician's board it is.

Also RnB music is a huge part of our culture. I know the ass clowing and cooning part of her behavior and the destruction of our music is lost on you. So you can see your way out of the convo.

I'm not a fan, but I can't get myself to hate this. It's just a classic case of sex sells, and she seems to have something of a sense of humour to her (the Baywatch reference, the pudgy shirtless guy). The lyrics are far too repetitive to my taste, but her flow is all right, especially to this particular beat. Maybe Cardi is a flash in the pan, maybe she'll stick around a bit longer. But she's hardly the most terrible emcee out there.

Well post in that funk musician's part of the site then. lol This part clearly says "Music: Non Prince". Prince & R&B are not the only music in the world. Basically you're the music equivalent of a bigot. To you only R&B is important, so that means you're prejudiced against other genres and/or artists. Country has been around for decades, and part of US culture too. If Cardi is "clowning" and many people enjoy it and watch her videos on Youtube, that's their business. Not yours, and you can't do anything about it. Like Madea movies make a lot of money at the box office and Tyler Perry has TV shows on Oprah's channel, which made him a millionaire. As long as a large amount of people support whatever the entertainment is, then the companies are going to continue to put it out. If Cardi B couldn't make money for the label, then she wouldn't have been signed in the first place, and they wouldn't have spent money on promoting her. She's on a major label, not an indie. You don't see labels spending a lot of money on promoting polka, traditional Irish folk tunes, & classical music, because they don't appeal to a large mainstream audience. Rap music does. Cardi built an audience because she was on a reality TV show. Reality shows have been popular for many years now, going all the way back to The Real World on MTV. Look at the Kardashian family.

I don't listen to crap. I'm not ashamed of anything I listen to and don't believe in guilty pleasures. Why do you think I use the name "Micky Dolenz" who is in The Monkees? Apparently a lot of people like Cardi because she had 3 Top 10s at the same time. People are not going to listen to stuff they don't like, so it is not crap to them. You're the one who cares about what I listen to and always commenting on it, saying I'm a loon for liking Weird Al and saying "country music" like it's an insult. So you're the one judging. I don't care about what you listen to and have never said anything about it. I don't even know what you like, because all you do is talk about what you don't like (Elvis, Justin Timberlake, Eric Benét, The Beatles, etc.). lol I don't put stuff down by calling it garbage and "the end of society". I'll just say I like a song or I don't like it. I'll defend popular music against you folks like I've defended adult contempory with Vainandy who was always talking about Whitney Houston & Anita Baker ruined funk music. So you're wasting your time trying to put down my taste, because I'm proud of it. I wear t-shirts with Weird Al and The Dukes Of Hazzard on them. If I was embarrased, I wouldn't have bought them.

How successful anyone is not really the point. There's not really any other country acts who have sold as well as Garth Brooks, and he hasn't released that many albums. Darius Rucker has been successful in country in recent years and the Pointer Sisters won a Grammy in country music. Lionel Richie's country duets album a few years ago sold more than any of his non-compilation albums since Dancin' On The Ceiling. Before doing country Darius released a neo-soul album that didn't sell much. Not all black people like and do the same things. There's black people who like or perform country music and have rodeos & trail rides. There's black farmers. There's ones who like punk and there's an Afropunk festival every year. There's ones who do opera and ones who go to Renaissance Faires. It's a stereotype that black people are supposed to listen to and perform R&B or hip hop and that all are "urban". That's probably why many blacks think rock n roll is "white boy" music. Black performers who do it are labeled "black rock" like white is the default.

That's because everyone knew that he always had a country voice so doing an
R&B album wasn't going to help him. I went to the University of South Carolina with him and remember when he used to work at one of the local record stores there and when his band Hootie and The Blowfish was just getting off the ground and playing at Rockefella's in Columbia S.C. He also used to sing on the choir at USC. He sung with a distinct country flair when Hootie was on top so it was just a natural progression to country. Nothing contrived. The R&B single he had was called Wild One I believe. It was alright but Darius and R&B don't belong in the same sentence. lol

Mickey stop fronting like you like Cardi B. You know you into pop music and the
Beach Boys. lol
