I don’t want to get all preachy by the current state of music right now is mediocre and that goes for ALL FORMS of music. Pick a genre, any genre, and you’ll find somewhere between three and six artists or groups that you like. That’s horrible, there are no real comercially viable options anymore. Plenty of people blame radio, or blame MTV, and though they are partly to blame, it’s not their fault entirely. Radio and MTV can’t play things that don’t exist and I think what people are craving right now is a kind of music that hasn’t ben created yet. This is why I feel there will be a complete overhaul (again) in 2006-2007.
Contined in the rest of this editorial are thoughts on who’s got next, what will happen to The Source, Hip-Hop, and the young artists that droped albums this year. The full story at reactmag.com has since been removed.
