DefCEM reacted to DevilsJim89 in Get Lit
Hey man - I agree with all that you said.
I don't mind Get Lit as I do enjoy house and some EDM but he's not giving us what we want. We want BARS! Will needs to actually SPIT BARS. Once that happens, he'll get more attention online. I don't care if he wants to experiment, you have to as an artist. Caution in the WIld could've been so much better if it was a full song and if he didn't repeat the same 4 lines or so in both "verses". The Fiesta remix video was pretty dope - imagine if those visuals were used for a proper rap comeback song.
I've been saying it for years that he's super secretive and insecure about his music...but says one thing and then says something else. He drops L+F saying how much he loves music and then never drops another single or album. In the music industry, if you don't have some recent, it's out of sight, out of mind and in Will's case - 12 years?! Completely out of mind. There's a whole generation of people who didn't know he was a rapper before the movies.
Another example - back in 2005, he said he was going to do stuff online. Where's the website? He doesn't even have a legit website. How about a soundcloud? He's so out of touch. I don't think he's cared much either about his music career and truth be told - it shows.
One more example in 2015 - "Oh yeah Jeff and I are going to do a proper world tour because we've never done it and its going to be in 2016." ....We got 2 shows in 2016. Not exactly a tour.
I get he's the biggest movie star on the planet but give me a break - he doesn't have to make movies another day in his life. If you really wanted to do music - you do it. Don't say we're going on tour and then go sign on for another 2 movies....seriously. This is where my frustration sets in.
If he wants to be taken seriously again regarding music, he needs to drop bars. Plain and simple. You don't need to sell records anymore - just do it for the love and people will respond.
DefCEM got a reaction from TheFre$hPrince in Get Lit
long time no see. hope y'all doing well. glad to see some of y'all got the chance to meet JJFP.
Here are my 2 cents about the new track. I think Will just doesn't care about what other people wish for. He probably did this track because he felt like it. I think theres no other oldskool rap veteran who experiments as much as Will with his music. They all keep it true to hiphop and to their own style to a certain degree. Personally i don't like the track, just because thats not my type of music. Born2Reign was similar in that aspect. He did a lot of experimental/non hiphop stuff on that album too. And his latest releases Caution in the Wild and the other one before that was the same. He tries to reach the mainstream Top 100 music listener of today, but the thing is, there are thousands of people who are better than him doing that type of music. Those recent tracks are forgotten already. Come to think, that he's very insecure about releasing music, this will just make it worse, if you look at the critics.
To tell the truth, i think he never really cared about his music career. He could at least do some fan service and release some oldskoolish hiphop tracks with Jeff. Honestly i would find it better, if he released nothing instead. This stuff is not really convincing.
DefCEM got a reaction from Typhoon20 in Will Smith is a f-cking scum bag! [VIDEO EVIDENCE]
stop making wars around the world and you'll have enough money...
regarding Will, as a rich and popular person he has to be comform with the way the industry works or they'll drop him in a blink of an eye.
one day you're good and rich the other day you're poor and bad. michael jackson is the perfect example. he had the heart to critisize the industry and talk about the bad people there and the things they did to him. they saw him as a danger because he had his own mind and a conscience. they took everything from him. as an artist you dont have no control and no power at all in the american entertainment industry. Will knows that, and to be honest in my opinion all those "artists" - which arent artists in my opinion, beacuse that would mean they create things - are sell outs. the way they make money is by selling themselves as a product. cause thats what they are - a product. the creative people are behind the camera if at all. but hollywood on the other is not really known for beeing creative and innovative. "art" is something which is pretty hard to find in commercial products these days.
The video is pretty interesting, because it shows the difference in Wills understanding and perception of the world and things surrounding him. if i didnt know better i would simply call him a opportunist. that is sad, because as an artist i think there are so much more valuable things than money, fame and fashion. there is a chance to be a role model to change things. but i have the feeling that all the stuff he does only serves his Mr Nice Guy image he's so sensitive about.
