These are the highest paid hip-hop artists in 2019.
Prices for concerts keep going up and are currently at their most expensive.
In the area I was raised in, there’s this one type of job I’d say 99% of people there work in, mining. This type of work breaks down souls and bodies and is extremely dangerous. Many people living there have rationalized why they keep on doing this job however, with money. They always say they hate their jobs, but hey, at least it pays good. By hearing them, I think a lot of things are exactly like this in life. You can hate many aspects of it, but it has something you need you just can’t give up, and that’s why it’s so hard for some people to move on off of otherwise terrible circumstances.
This is yet another article that claims the death of rock and roll is near.
“You will ask me where I get my ideas. That I cannot tell you with certainty. They come unsummoned, directly, indirectly-I could seize them with my hands-out in the open air, in the woods while walking in the silence of the nights, early in the morning. Incited by moods, which are translated by the poets into words, by me into tones that sound and roar and storm about me until I have set them down in notes. Do not only practice art, but get at the very heart of it. This it deserves. For only art and science raise men to the level of the gods. The true artist is not proud. He unfortunately sees that art has no limits. He feels darkly how far he is from the goal. And though he may be admired by others, he is said to have not reached that point to which his better genius only appears as a distant, guiding sun.”
-Ludwig van Beethoven
As a child, I remember I was part of a school play that was set in the 50s and I had to sing this song, that said rock and roll will never die.
And the band AC/DC said the same thing in one of their songs.
But now, a writer from Variety is saying those predictions are false and that the genre will be dead by 2060.
I was not aware of this other anniversary in 2019, but yesterday was the 40th anniversary of the Sony Walkman.
