|But these are academic points. This
has got to be Sonys fault, doesnt it, somehow or other?
Surely it must. While Rap-A-Lot, the Geto Boys label, was an
entirely indie affair in the righteous rap cassette tradition, and
while their distribution was through Priority, a California-based
label that built an empire around selling 12 singles out of
cars parked at street corners, yet I am certain that this is somehow
Sonys fault. First they only pump twenty-five mil into Invincible,
and then they neglect Willie Dees solo album for upwards of
twelve years. Dont let them get away with this. Write
to them and tell them what you think of this blatantly racist
refusal to promote worthwhile artists. Demand higher radio exposure
for songs like 5th Ward and Kick That S...
and dont take no for an answer. And if you do get
an answer, let us know, would you? We are eager to hear how the giant
responds to the true voice of the public sounding out loud and clear.
