But when you intellectual, some niggas ain't gon' let you on

from Wale – The Soup Lyrics on Rap Genius


The rap industry promotes the violent, flashy ghetto culture. When somebody is a Conscious rapper rapping about social issues like Lupe Fiasco, J. Cole, Common or Wale himself, many industry promoters (record labels, radio stations, etc.) are hesitant to play his songs. To be fair though, it’s no fun to hear about social issues!!! I’d much rather hear that “It’s Gettin' Hot in Herrre”
