Occupy Wall Street, Occupy Your Hood, Occupy America & the world.. But first people “Occupy Your Mind”!!
First & foremost, I stand with the “Occupiers” whose movement which started in my hometown NYC is beginning to spread to other cities across the country. Boston, Los Angeles, Boston, Atlanta and other cities are having similar movements.
Critics attack the Occupy Wall Street for its’ lack of “focus” its “lack” of “agenda”, “lack” of a “five point bullet-point presentation”. They proclaim that these are just a bunch of angry “99′s” (of the unemployment variety); a bunch of modern day “hippies”.. (Not hipsters I hate those) They point to the lack of mainstream media coverage.. Even left wing heroes such as Thom Hartman, NorMan GoldMan, Lawrence O’Donnell, Keith Olbermann & Rachel Maddow was late to the party.. As always our so-called black leaders are even more late. (Ebonics..)
The believed problem with Occupy Wall Street is the movement’s lack of a cookie cutter marketing strategy. The limited amount of media attention tries to compare it to the Tea Party Movement, which was nothing more than an elaborate guerilla marketing campaign.. We do the same thing with a new artist we pushing. The corporate media is late to the party because it’s hard for them to define it. (At least that’s their excuse) The Right knows it’s against them but the “Middle Left” or what I like to call the Progressive panderers is afraid of this movement because it represents the frustrated and disenfranchised segment of their base. Not to mention Wall Street owns all the corporate media outlets. Is there any suprse of the lack of coverage?
So what is the Average person’s problem?
Yawn. Another book from another musician. Let’s guess: He rose from the depths of hell with his talent and went big time. He changed the face of music and made millions. Yeah, a few drug addiction, arrest, and STD stories are sporadically sprinkled throughout for excitement and authenticity, but at the end of it all, he finished his ride a musical legend. He finally gave up dressing room groupies and nose candy; he currently resides with his wife and the children that aren’t illegitimate in Calabasas, CA.
Who can really relate to that shit besides other successful musicians?
My name is J-Zone. If you actually know who the hell I am, either you listen to way too much rap music, you’re a Tim Dog fan, or you stood outside my distributor’s warehouse the day my CDs and records were destroyed. I was on the hip-hop come-up, then I came down – hard. Splat. Some critical success, incessant praise from pop stars and hip-hop legends alike, and then…abysmal commercial failure. I did tours on Greyhound buses filled with wide-bodied, Jheri curled women and knife-wielding gang members. I witnessed my life-long passion for music dissolve in 12 hours and my final album sell a whopping 47 copies in its first month for sale. I left my little-known spot in a small, niche quadrant of the hip-hop world and joined my fellow overqualified stiffs with useless college degrees in the world of dead end jobs. For some sick reason, I find all of the above hilarious and have made an omelette out of any egg that wound up on my face. Read more…
