I'm not sure what to think of this guy but he came out of nowhere w/ a few songs I don't mind. What are your thoughts? I'm somewhat scratching my head on this one.

Discuss.

Anyone who pops up out of nowhere with tons of media support and (somehow) a huge following is, to me, an industry plant. And I feel that's obvious.

Yet, that applies to almost any music celebrity these days. So my main question is...what artist that has suddenly hit the scene with a bunch of success within the past 10 years isn't an industry plant? And what does "industry plant" mean at this point? I'm not asking facetiously. I'm sure there's an actual answer and I'm sincerely interested in making sense of this shit.

There were a lot of rumors about OF being industry plants. I mean...they did kind of explode out of nowhere with high production videos. I know there was a lot of discussio about this soon after they hit the mainstream, but I didn't care to follow it. To me it seemed they obviously had backers and people in the industry pulling a lot of strings. But that's not to say they lack talent, ingenuity, or business sense. I reckon that's probably a requirement for an "industry plant." At least two of those three things anyway.

What is "the scene" if not the industry? The only mainstream success someone can get without the industry is going "viral", which will either be short-lived or quickly followed up by industry power.

After witnessing the great Macklemore Myth I'm realizing that "indie" is just the industry's way of introducing their new artists in a way that doesn't make it so obvious. Thing is-- I don't know what a mainstream artist without industry even looks like. It's chicken vs egg-- I don't think there's an answer to your question.

Uhhh...eek. That started off rough. After that initial high-cringe BLM interaction, he handled himself really well with the indie discussion. "Maybe I'm just not smart enough" was a humble/smart thing to say, even if not totally true. I wish they would have let him go in on about that and how other artists they mentioned aren't really independent.

Because music isn't subjective and has to be as deep as sages music all the time right?
