"how can I be an artist if they paint me as a cynic
cause I'm such a critic, of these 'artists' with a gimmick
that someone else gave you now think for a minute
are you art or a nail trynna keep up an image?"
because... nails hold up paintings... get it? Basically I had to take a stab at artists who are allowing the money (be it a major label, people in their circle, or even the "fans") to dictate their image and how they present themselves to hip hop. I believe as artists we all have a responsibility to be true to ourselves - if your TRUE self is party all the time then be that but don't sit in an interview and complain about that lifestyle and continue to rap about that lifestyle. Be true to yourself. Thanks for listening to my ramblings.
