As a hard rocker back in the 1980s, I can say the Guns N Roses initial success (which took about a year to kick in, btw) was due to being perceived as slightly more serious, gritty and harder than your average sunset strip glam metal band. Their sound was less slick and bubblegum scented than say, Poison, and felt more in line with 70s era Aerosmith - 70s rock in general was starting seep back in (see The Cult "Electric", Jane's Addiction, Danzig 1, Soundgarden, etc.), so it was perfect timing. From there, their lasting appeal is down to clever pop metal songwriting.

4:23 as an artist who tried discovery mode out on a song while its still in beta, i saw an immediate increase in streams which kept rising and is currently at 10x the daily plays compared to before I opted in, went from 1k to 10k a day on that song, and my monthly listening shot up from about 35k to 76k in 2.5 weeks. A good thing about it is you can opt in on specific songs so its not like they are locking you into the deal once you use it. Another thing is that they are only taking royalties from plays in the geographical areas where discovery mode is in effect, so all in all I think its a good feature at this moment but its heavy usage when it is fully released will probably water down the effect eventually making it obsolete, or even worse it will be a requirement if you want to be heard the same way you were before. Update: went from 76k to 82k monthly listeners yesterday, biggest jump yet 2nd update: song is still improving on numbers with the highest being 20k in a day and im about to reach 200k monthly listeners
Trunja 6 mesi fa
Another thing I forgot to add, due to the algorithmic nature of discovery mode, with the sudden increase in traffic on my song, the quality of my listeners has gone down, less people are returning to the music and my streams/listener went from around 4.5 to 2.5

What makes Guns N Roses so famous is their post-debut era. Whilst the debut carries the most famous songs, Sweet Child O Mine, Welcome to the Jungle and more (and is their best album) it is their stardom during the late 80s as a cultural movement that makes them so famous. Plus, as a now more subtle and mature listener who used to love GNR as a kid, their melodic songs (Civil War, November Rain) still hit like a fucking train when ur ready for them. Idk, dumb band, but one a lot of people cherish for what it meant for them growing up. (Kind of like a hard rock Elton John)

Appetite was one of the best debut albums ever rock or otherwise. The thing about GNR is that they were off the rails even before they started recording. In retrospect it's amazing that they accomplished what they did before completely falling apart, what w the drugs and Axl's megalomaniac psychotic narcissistic madness😅 And then came Chinese Democracy...
@iamuhura 🤦‍♂️man, oh man... that kinda music was not my thing at the time (I grew up mostly on HipHop and alt-rock), and I've never been a big fan of GnR, but that song & video is _undeniable!_ Yes, it's got some laughably corny, pompous rock video cliche going on, but that song - and Slash's final solo - is one of the best musical moments of the 20th Century, imho. Has the ability to bring me to the verge of tears. In fact, I'm gonna go watch it right now! 😁✌🔥

On the spotify deal - it definitely has a significant effect on exposing your music to more listeners, spotify can 100% snap their fingers and send you attention. It's especially beneficial for periods where artists aren't consistently releasing as it keeps music circulating in the algorithm (justifying the royalty cut because you would be getting less streams anyways, w/o releasing in todays landscape). I still think it's somewhat exploitive, but it's also just Spotify supplying the demand for exposure.

It's so obvious when someone has no knowledge of music history prior to 2015. How can you say Pusha T was carried through his whole career and not even list HALF of his career?
😆 Fr... Less than half! He's been among the top 10 active rappers for 20 years. It's a Drake-stan projecting the fact his Aubrey demi-god has been carried all his career onto the guy who _slaughtered_ him in a beef, to the point there was no response!

Counterpoint: Akademics gave us the "my top 5 is drake, drake, drake..." His contribution to comedy is legit
🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🙄🤦‍♂️ _Fr?!?_ I can't stand dude so I would've never heard him say that, unless it was when Joe Budden was schooling him on Complex... The fact anyone can say that with a straight face, with no sign of shame or embarrassment, says a MEGA-TON about them and about American culture & the culture of _"mainstream"_ HipHop. Saying that when there are so many true MCs, not just mainstream, but particularly in the underground, is just _astonishing!_ Pusha-T, himself, is infinitely better, and a real candidate for the GOAT conversation. I told Ak fans, being unintentionally hilarious is not the same as being funny lol
Tommy Strickland
I actually disagree on your take about bonus tracks. I think that sometimes it's not necessarily that They Are Not good songs But Maybe they do not fit the theme of the rest of the album and were good songs that the artist still wanted to release in some way

Hell yeah. Especially now that B-sides are less and less of a thing. I can think of plenty of examples of bonus tracks, outtakes, b-sides, etc being some of my favorite songs in an artist's discography

Wikipedia considers TVU&N a collaborative album but people generally don't because she only sings on 4 of the 11 songs (1 of which being background vocals), didn't write on it, and was mostly just on it at the behest of Andy Warhol. It's collaborative in that they're both on it, but not in that they worked on it together, she was a late add-on to an already finished batch of songs.
Tykjpelk 6 mesi fa
The smart way for Spotify to sell exposure would be to improve the algorithm and only apply the improvements to the artists who paid, but keep the number of recommendations the same. I.e. you as the listener will see the same things you see now except a few of those recommendations will be way more relevant for you. And if every artist bought in every recommendation would be gold, and overall people might listen to more music I guess. Plus random promotions like with the ITvid algorithm to show off how artists can get crazy boosts in popularity from data science payola.

You’re describing Motley Crue when you talk about GnR. They actually have musical substance. Listen to the guitars, they’re almost NEVER playing the same thing at once. And their first record sounds a lot better than the typical over produced glam record because they could really play tf outta their parts and they had great pocket and energy as a band. Also slash made Les Pauls cool again.

Here's a "Let's Argue" thing I saw somewhere else but I totally agreed with: There has never been a year when Jay Z was indisputably the hottest rapper of the year.
Bingo the Pug

Half of Jay Z rhymes are from Biggie, especially his early material
Dexenation Gracey
That's true. There was always a bigger star than J, whether it be DMX, Ja Rule, Eminem, Nas, Biggie, Pac or Lil Wayne, Drake, Kanye, 50 Cent. He's like The Undertaker of hip-hop. He was never THE GUY but was always in the conversation for the top five names in the business.
@Dexenation Gracey Unfortunately, a real MC doesn't always add up to a star... I'm not so huge a Jay-Z fan, but Aubrey, Clown'Ye, 50 Cent, Lil Wayne - even Eminem - are not as good as he is. If Pac and BIG were still around, these cats would all be taken much less seriously. And Aubrey, Ye'dolf and 50 Cent are just objectively bad rappers. billy woods is arguably the greatest MC of all time considering what he's done the last 15 or so years and barely anyone knows about him... and I like it that way. He's infinitely better than all those rappers I named. If people wanna make Top 50 Stars List, that's one thing... but if we're making Top 50 Rappers Lists, including names like Drake, Ye, 50, Wayne, etc, makes it a joke! Even Eminem doesn't belong in the top 50. Those cats are all as big as they are because of their producers.

2:37 I gotta say, I feel the exact opposite. I feel like personally releasing demos as bonus tracks serves no purpose, because you already have the finished product, rarely would I want to hear a more rough version of that. Completely new songs that didn't make the cut, sure they might be not as good as the rest, but at least it's wholly new, it's not some half-baked version of another song that was already heard. I'd much rather hear a b-side than a demo.

If you really watch Akademiks for his music takes then you are watching the wrong guy he's been doing this for like 11+ years now at this point people should know what he's about he's entertaining in his own that's his lane and there's plently of times where he does spit game to upcoming creatives/artists and encourages them to keep moving forward but don't get me wrong he does say a lot of things that's out of pocket.

By giving him attention like this, he's gonna run with it and milk this to the last drop. He hasn't changed since he started. Drama, drama, drama. I can't stand that dude.

I have NEVER watched a single Akademics video or piece of content. He's successful/relevant because people watch him, even those who think "he's the worst thing in music."

The akademiks hate is hypocrisy at it's finest, none of the people hating AK don't blame the rappers actually murdering each other and promoting "smoking" opps is songs and videos, or even the record execs that put millions into promoting the death/prison culture to make a profit

Akademiks never talked about music he had a page called”war in chiraq” which was catered to street beef of artists in Chicago like chief keef, king von, fbg duck etc.

I can’t imagine anyone outright hating sade wtf

Think about it. If you’re a terminally online forever alone who’s never even been kissed and probably never will be how on earth could you get jiggy to Sade? Her music would probably feel like white noise to a person like that. Like they can’t relate to any aspect of it and probably just want to rock out to some cringe ass neck beard-y death metal shit instead
⁠@Charles Burekeni yeah dude , I’m sure woman are just dying to touch you .

my favorite takes are the ones like "pusha t was carried his whole career" because theyre really like just telling on themselves

Really dont know why ak would go down that path. It was alright when he was a fan and a reporter of hip hop. Then he gets on fresh n fit suddenly hes being “alpha” when doesnt need to. Making a living doing what u love to do what anybody wanna do. And yeah pusha t wasnt carried. Please listen to more clipse stuff. He is, was, and ever will be…..fire.
