I totally agree with the author that wrote this, to an extent. Pop and rap music for the most part is about money and fame along with drugs and sex. The talent in those genres are very limited to a very low number of artists. Don’t get me wrong there are some good artists out there playing those genres. But to me when it comes to “keeping it real” as you put it. It comes to playing rock and metal, old and new. Once again don’t get me wrong there are many artists in those genres as well who only do it for the fortune and fame, but they get that by actually playing good music.
