Nobodysmiling.com : Why do you think artists stopped challenging their fans? Did the labels push for this change or was it a drop off in artistry?

And you'll hear him talk on the radio and you're more interested in what he's saying on the radio than what he's saying in his music. It's like damn, why don't you say that [beep] in your music? On the radio, he's breaking down the industry; breaking down getting money and all that really, really smart [beep] that niggas really need to hear, but you listen to his records and that [beep] is wild dumb. Why, because the people that he's selling records to want to hear that.
