...Its not.... for those needing help contextualing this nonsensical venture read (J) Zones latest cue point article lambasting TLC for their crowd-funded project. The Big timers want to benefit from small-time marketing schema is all... 

 

edit: for me credibility should inevitably be questioned when the only positive review is coming from Forbes...

.. I haven't read the article, but you bring up that it blasts TLC for crowd funding thier latest album. De La Soul have done exactly just that. Any thoughts? I see no reason why crowd funding a record should be an issue to credibility. These are new times. The record industry ain't what it used to be.

...well I agree with you...but Zone's argument is that this is also a mechanism for them to take advantage of ulterior funding sources that negatively correlates with the amount of effort put into said work and undermines true proponents of an independent scene. De La soul's example is also slightly different because they are conceptually doing something different to make the crowd-funded project more unique and "fan"-oriented. TLC are just releasing their atypical schlock. I think maybe he's a bit draconian but I agree it would be an unfortunate trend if more artists used this method to peddle their mediocrity...of course the new TLC album could also actually be good....
