Makes A Difference

Until you have one of these on the shelf, you really haven't made the cut.  That's why people like Rick Ross, T.I. and 2 Chainz are appearing every chance they get. You're only as big as your last hit. Look at Sly and  the Family Stone and the Ohio Players. Sugarfoot died broke and Sly Stone lives in Watts in a van. Both thrse guys made millions in their prime. But they don't get those residuals. Heaven forbid they get hooked on drugs. They can end up flat broke. When J Blackfoot died he was doing shows and waiting to get paid. Bobby Rush is eighty years old and doing two shows a night.

The fact that  Niicky Minaj, Rihanna and Myley Cyrus don't have this coveted award is contradictory to what I'm saying.  They are three of the hottest acts in the game. Yet they weren't even mentioned. But do you remember Cyndi Lauper? She is still in the conversation thirty years later. She has a song nominated for a Grammy right now. CeCe Peniston was a hit machine in the nineties too, but she is doing episodes of "Unsung" on TvOne.That's not like singing thr "National Anthem" at a major sporting event. Tina Turner just got marriedMary Maey M and Patti Labelle is still on the B guest list singing " Lady Marmalade"from yesteryear. But on the other end of the spectrum. Mary Wells and the Marvelettes died in virtual obscurity.

People like Bobby OJay are telling people just focus on the live performances. They might be making big money rheas days but that's going to change.The market is going to get saturated just it has over here. The promoters are going to get hip. Why pay  Wacko two hundred thousand, when you can get  Yung Dro for fifty and a  ticket? No matter how much money you make abroad, the main destination is still the states.You can still get rich without a Grammy. But in an industry loaded with attitudes and egos. Having a Grammy makes a difference.
