In a powerful interview with Angie Martinez for the radio station Power 105.1, performer J Cole eloquently picks apart the mainstream music industry. He exposes it for what it is, and speaks from a perspective of firsthand experience.
But what I particularly love about this piece is where he takes it beyond that point. His analysis of the human experience and how we all basically sell ourselves out to survive is certainly thought-provoking.
I agree with J Cole that the issues truly lie at the system level, and our response to it keep in place. Check out the quick segment from the interview and see what you think about it.
