I’ve just been shown THIS DEBATE on Prancehall’s blog. Have a read of it and tell me what you think.

I personally am in shock that some people are so pathetic. I’ve been working very hard for years and have been building my career over that time, to claim I have had sooo many chances to ‘blow’ and ‘If he hasn’t had any commercial success by now, it’s never going to happen.’ is such a load of bullshit. I have just signed my first ever deal with a major label. Up to mid 2008 the only ‘chances’ I had were crafted by myself and my two managers, on not massive resources but a load of work and passion, how that means I’ve had so many chances to go mainstream I’m not sure as I have never yet had a release that has had the real chance to reach beyond a fairly specialised audience.

The same goes for Ghetto, he’s just signed his first major deal for ‘Sing for Me’, he (and me) might be ‘old’ to some people but really as an ‘urban’ artist in the UK you are never going to make it to the mainstream without years of hard work and dedication which can result in coverage like that in The Guardian, whose readers (or at the least the massive majority) will never have heard of myself, Ghetts, Chipmunk, Ny or anyone featured in the piece. To suggest others deserve the coverage more is dumb aswell when really the people who are making a name for themselves in the wider world are those in the piece (in my opinion anyway), why would The Guardian cover artists who might not be heard of again for months after the piece rather than those who are putting the work in to make sure they can capitalise on that kind of coverage.

Sorry to rant but it annoys me so much when people take this attitude when they clearly don’t understand anything about how this whole thing works, either that or certain people are just purely HAAAAATING!!!

Oh yeah and massive RESPECT to Alex for choosing myself and the others for that piece!!

    The average internet thug has no fucking idea how much time, effort, money and sacrifices go into making ‘urban’ or underground music any kind of success. At least we have blogs to get our own opinions accross tho ey!

    Always supportin, Goldie x
