Getting arrested on album release week.

Tekashi69 just got arrested on the week of his album release date.
Everyone always seems to get arrested on to the week leading up to thier album release date!
Is this just marketing?

Tekashi69 is trash for reason we won’t get into right now.
Irrespective, is getting arrested on your album release date just pure marketing?

Is it true that the worse your material is than the bigger your arrest/scandal got to be?
How does it all work?

‘Saba’ ’Sampha’ and ‘Leikeli47’ are not getting arrested on thier album release week. they probably don’t need to because thier material is strong enough to stand alone. that’s all I’m saying.


That’s just what I heard.

Is he the guy who used a 13 year old girl in a sexual situation?
If so than I hope he gets fixed in the backside in jail. If not for that than for his shit music.

I never heard of him but a quick Google search suggests that this isn't a marketing ploy because his album's release has been indefinitely postponed by the record label.

I suppose what I’m getting at is this.

From an article on Businessinsider.com

”He explained that the companies (record labels) we work for had invested millions into the building of privately owned prisons and that our positions of influence in the music industry would actually impact the profitability of these investments.


https://www.google.com.au...sic-2012-5


What if rap music is just a tool to turn impressionable listeners into prison-bound degenerates?

That's what one man claiming to be a former music executive said in an anonymous letter published today by the blog hiphopisread.com.

According to the mystery man's letter, gangster rap is a product designed to benefit private prison systems.

The man writes that he went to a Los Angeles meeting in 1991 and immediately signed a confidentiality agreement. What followed shocked him and the other people at the meeting.

[Note: Hip Hop Is Read uses anonymous sources, which we can't verify.]

The industry executives were asked to promote gangster rap in order to drive up the number of inmates and profits for the private prison systems, which funded the business.

Here's part of the man's account of the meeting:

Quickly after the meeting began, one of my industry colleagues (who shall remain nameless like everyone else) thanked us for attending. He then gave the floor to a man who only introduced himself by first name and gave no further details about his personal background. I think he was the owner of the residence but it was never confirmed. He briefly praised all of us for the success we had achieved in our industry and congratulated us for being selected as part of this small group of "decision makers". At this point I begin to feel slightly uncomfortable at the strangeness of this gathering.
The subject quickly changed as the speaker went on to tell us that the respective companies we represented had invested in a very profitable industry which could become even more rewarding with our active involvement.
He explained that the companies we work for had invested millions into the building of privately owned prisons and that our positions of influence in the music industry would actually impact the profitability of these investments.
I remember many of us in the group immediately looking at each other in confusion. At the time, I didn't know what a private prison was but I wasn't the only one. Sure enough, someone asked what these prisons were and what any of this had to do with us. We were told that these prisons were built by privately owned companies who received funding from the government based on the number of inmates. The more inmates, the more money the government would pay these prisons.

I think on wall street they call this “synergising your investment portfolio”

lawyer says about Tekashi69:

"An entertainer who portrays a 'gangster image' to promote his music does not make him a member of an enterprise."
https://www.google.com.au...ement/amp/


Interestingly, Tekashi69 was signed directly to a label owned by Elliot Grainge, the son of Sir Lucian Charles of Universal Music Group.
Ebro on Hot97 in New York claims that Tekashi 69’s beef with his label mate Trippie Red was manufactured for marketing.
Trippie Red is also signed to Elliot Grainge.


It appears that all these business executives and industry people are behind certain artists and are in thier ears, pushing them along and helping to manufacture thier image for thier own financial interests.

Messy.

For anyone who thinks such a thing is far fetched for business executives to be involved in.
If a judge can be lured, then it is very plausible that shady business people would also be involved in such an initiative.
Particularly if their companies or corporate conglomerates that they work for are part owners of private prisons.



”An American judge known for his harsh and autocratic courtroom manner was jailed for 28 years for conspiring with private prisons to hand young offenders maximum sentences in return for kickbacks amounting to millions of dollars [from private prison contractors]

Federal prosecutors accused Ciavarella Jnr and a second judge, Michael Conahan, of taking more than $2m in bribes from the builder of the PA Child Care and Western PA Child Care detention centres and extorting hundreds of thousands of dollars from the facilities’ co-owner. Ciavarella Jnr filled the beds of the private prisons with children as young as 10, many of them first-time offenders convicted minor crimes”

I am not surprised that beefs are manufactured. I need receipts on the rest.

I know it not clear why the record label are helping to manufacture Tekashi69’s persona. Or why they want this particular type of persona manufactured.

I had to do some quick research on this case for this discussion.
I read that his lawyers were offering $750,000 bail.
There are actual poor people who wouldn’t even resort to committing armed robbery.
This guy has $750,000 to spare for bail, yet he is also out here robbing people with guns.
Is it Kleptomania that drives him to rob people? because he clearly has money to go and buy whatever it is he is robbing people for.


Clearly a fake manufactured persona.
That’s why I think this is b.s and just marketing.

I am more inclined to think "Fake news" with him.
