Xzibit Gives His Take On The State Of Hip Hop

Rapper Xzibit has given his thoughts about the state of hip-hop and it’s not good.

“Hip Hop is huge. And it made so many people so much money, they think anybody can do it. Everyone feels that Hip Hop is so accessible that anybody can do it,” he told TMZ.

He continued: “It’s become a mockery of itself. It’s become too accessible. There was a time that there was somebody that you had to go into their office and get an investment into your career. Now, if you just have a laptop and WiFi, you can be an artist. People do themselves a disservice by trying to participate in that.”

Xzibit says one of the reasons for his take is because there is very little ownership in hip-hop.

“We should have unionized. We should have had some kind of union, we shoulda had a board, we shoulda organized ourselves. ‘Cause right now, you know, becoming 50 years later we still don’t own sh-t. So until we own it, until we control it, until we have a say who gets to f-ckin’ call themselves this and call themselves that, like everybody else, it’s gonna continue to spiral out of control. And that’s why we’re not on the Billboard [charts], because nobody is in the pilot seat guiding us to where we supposed to go.”

He added: “This is a billion dollar industry. But until we take the focus and we clean up our own backyard, it’s not going to have the same respect it that’s it garnished in the past.”

Y;all agree?
