Ayo Shun! Where da' bands from the hood at?
Posted 19 December 2013 - 02:36 AM
I'm not saying there aren't any, but not enough are getting the proper attention and all these singing groups and rappers are just not that special anymore.
I want to see more Bassists, Drummers, Guitarists, Keyboardists and Horn Sections in the music video with the Singer or MC and out on tour together as a unit.
I want the labels market bands to me, not boy bands or girl groups or rap crews. I wants bands to make me dance and not wack kind that Juicy J raps about.
Where's the new Earth, Wind & Fire, Kool & The Gang, Cameo, Slave, Heatwave, Switch, Commodores, Brick, Ohio Players and Fatback at?

Dudes were dope and it melded my love for music effortlessly. The MC and I had a few battles due to a few squabbles but I ended up an academic student of his manager, later. Dudes got they ego hurt in the battle, son.
Funny, some household names in "hip hop" were nobodies back then...times change.

Where are the music programs to teach disadvantaged youth to play the instruments they can't afford to buy? Our society puts all emphasis on the individual, that's not an attitude conducive to creating team players. All those bands you listed came from a whole other time, when schools actually had music and after school programs.
This. It kills me that growing up I couldn't even afford to join the school band/orchestra, any kind of music education would have been great really. I don't think there's anything wrong with society putting an emphasis on the individual and really see more of the problem being the lack of public interest in funding the arts. We can fund a bunch of wars and shitty government programs but won't invest in the creative arts and the improvement of culture in general, it's really too bad.
