Jus is to blame but STILL wouldn't want someone around my kids with a lame-aß name like li'l twist
No, JB's PR camp just needs somebody to blame so their perfect poster-noy can maintain his image. Twist is an easy target. The parents ofhis fans won't really know who he is so all they'll know is here's some rapper hanging out with Justin making him look bad. Justin's people are throwing him under the bus big time.
Blame it on the black kid for having a negative influence on the lil white Disney playhouse rock boy. When you have money it doesn't change you, it allows you to be more of what you really are, bad or good..
Preach, yep blame it on the black kid, that's the PR team doing its job
How is it possible for someone (Lil twist) to still have a record deal when he has released no albums?
I believe because there are so many people in the ymcmb camp, they take turns promoting their artist. First it was drake then nicki then tyga.. Etc.
There are a lot of artist signed to YMCMB. But really, I think it is because he is a mediocre talent and his album wouldn't sell anyway. I've heard this "they take turns..." reason before and I don't believe it, because a REAL artist would never allow their career to take a backseat like that. Besides, is it 'taking turns' really if only 4 artists get to release albums?
it's YMCMB... they all have mediocre talent. But anyways I think they do drop mix-tapes from time to time, but if the boss (Wayne I presume, and the other guy) isn't ready to promote you then you're basically stuck.
For example I remember listening to Lupe fiasco talk about how he wasn't willing to compromise on his values and beliefs, record labels wanted him to rap about this and that, and to make chart topping hits (think waka flocka flame- esque music) in exchange for substance and Lupe wasn't having it, so they stopped promoting him and refused to release his album.
Sure you can get your own following, but only so much can be done. Because the record labels have the tools to promote them on a bigger platform, then if they do it alone. And for YMCMB looking elsewhere to help you for your career would probably be seen as unloyal. You know how YMCMB is, they're very close knit. from what I gathered. Also too having raw talent doesn't mean a person has star quality. Sometimes people have to be groomed before hand. Also last point.... they have contracts. so even if they wanted to they can't just up and leave.
Yes, they do release mixtapes. But mixtapes are FREE! In the working world, if one doesn't get promoted, then they find another job. Some of the 'artists' have been on YMCMB for 3/4 years, never releasing an album.
Actually, I don't know how YMCMB is.
I never implied or said that having raw talent meant one had star quality.
I know that they have contracts and can't just 'up and leave'. However, it is in their best interests to do so.
they get shows off how well their mixtapes do...show money is better than album money for most artists
Lol they can't be that bad, look at them saying grace at the table
Sigh smh you cannot blame someone else for how you or another person acts. HE is responsible his own actions. This is stuff we teach preschool children. Why would adults try to blame someone else for his bs
I seen JB in Hollywood 3 or 4 times meeting with Jazzy from Jazzy management I think jazzy is the best when it comes to real business in this music game we love you @Jazzymgt your a true big brother to us and people should know this man
Lol, I knew they would blame him. More proof at how they really see blacks.
Even if it was a white rapper people would still say the same. Rappers life style is very different to how justins was.
How do you know how Justin's lifestyle is lol
justin bieber need to man up, quit being a little b**ch and take responsibility for his own actions, lil twist (whoever the hell he is) didn't put a gun to his head and make him smoke weed, i'm sure, he's not a child anymore and he needs to be careful with the decisions he makes so his dumb***** fans don't go around cutting themselves who btw need to get a f**king life and some help cause its not that serious, honestly smh, if you think your celebrity role model is perfect, get real and think again, their human and grow up and live their lives however the hell they want too just like the rest of, there's just so happens to be in front of the spotlight
The fact that Beiber smoked weed, is the first thing in human history to make weed less appealing.
If Justin didn't hang around with Lil Twist and I 100% bet he wouldn't be doing half the things he has been doing now. Smoking weed, drinking is not the best thing for him if is meant to me a "role model". Plus why do you need to do all those things even if your rish or not. It's not the best life style. But people do as they please. If this is the path Justing wants to take he is gunna lose a lot of fans and respect. Just my opinion. I am a fan of YMCMB, a lot of rappers apart of YMCMB are great people. But are rapper the best of people for young clean singers? Of course JB makes mistakes, this will just drag him down even more. his parents and his people should be supporting him more and moving him away from that kind of life style.
First of all just because people sing or wrap doesn't mean they Are not normal people. And normal people get speeding tickets and some of them smoke weed or worst. This is a black and white thing don't get it twisted
why are they praying? Hope they are praying for forgiveness.
Typical white people(no offense) but y'all want to act black and have black friends but as soon as y'all get in trouble y'all want to talk all proper and throw the black friend under the bus
U are a Racist, period. .. no offense.
we throw ourselves under the bus more than anyone.....this is not a white or black thing its teens doing what teens do
I think Justin needs to take responsiblity for his actions u not going to get to the top with trying to blame others and yea u fall but can u get back up cuz the road he is on his going down hill
LOL blacks roll on each other all the time to save their own self, so don't act like it's a white thing to throw someone under the bus...it's a character thing. You are either responsible for your own actions or you aren't, and throwing color into it is rediculous.
Its his own life if he wants too blaze its all gucci
He still is on top
And the females love him so this aint even a story
Lil twist has a bunch of good songs out
They are 2 years old but dude forsure is still well known
Jb's PR camp need to take responsibility nd not blame others and jb might learn a thing or 2 about responsibility when his choices effect his image (not that I care)
OK WHO DAM HELL SNAPPIN PICTURES AS IF DONT HAVE TO BOW THEIR HEADS AND PRAY TOO.UNGREATFUL,DISRESPECTFUL *****F%%%^%%%
somebody toss both these lil fools a beatin.
This dudes 18 or 19 so he's an adult who live in Cali and is from Canada both places know for weed and the fact that you can smoke it (with provisions) so ya of course he's smoking weed. And how is it Lil Twist fault the photog was killed taking pics of a stopped car maybe he shouldn't have been in the street or maybe they shouldn't chase celebs cars
well he wasnt getting into all this ***** when it was just that corny ole swaggER coach
