Artist vs Person

I know this is not a new phenomenon but I think social media has made it more apparent.. some of these artists that we support through ticket sales etc. are less reasonable than Donny Trump. They say all the right things on stage but as soon as they cash that check and bounce back to their small worlds they support all kinds of f'd up ideas and movements. Just say this so that one and all are aware.

For sure! I was excited about so many more artists as a teenager and young adult, seems the list of those I rate, has become much more select.

ratings for musical performance are one thing... ratings as people... that is a completely separate issue. Maybe I am just getting old but I am tired of the entire authenticity discussion. I been dealing with this since the early days of HIP HOP music.. aka "keeping it real".. I never thought it would come into reggae music but the discussion of who is a real rasta and what makes you a real rasta etc... you just want to tell people to stfu and worry about themselves. It is crazy.

people often have trouble seeing past the messenger and never get the actual message itself.

Ranking Dread- great artist or gangster???

I'd say both

But I say... Some Never Even Plant yet want to Reap,

Took a little walk from my Vineyard...
Now I'm on my own
Now I'm left alone..
