Erykah Badu took to her Twitter account yesterday (October 13) to rant about the music industry – more so, her fellow R&B acts going pop.
“How y’all gone stand by and let our music turn into pop techno cornball ass music? We don’t own our music no more. Come to think of it, did we EVER own it? Where is the funk AT? They playd 6 in a row today – pop techno songs back to back. With so called R&B and rap artist on the Hip Hop station.”
“Where [have] I been? I wanna hear from the young people. [It’s] easy for me to complain about this techno-pop cause I have a taste for something else. But how do YOU feel? I definitely don’t want to offend anyone. Young people, I know this is the music of your generation. These rappers ought to be ashamed of their damn selves. I’m talking about the mc’ s rappin over this pop techno music. I believe in pimpin the system [but] got DAMN! Not like this!”
For someone claiming they don’t want to “offend” anyone, she sure is taking a lot of jabs.
Could she be talking about Kelly Rowland? Usher? Ne-Yo? Kelis? All of the above?
