'Industry' ... A Poem written by Big Virge 31/5/2016

So EXACTLY WHAT Is The... " INDUSTRY "... ?
A Place For Sheep To BLEAT... !!!!!
Or Somewhere For The Weak...
To CLAIM That They Sound Sweet...

REAL ART Is RARELY Seen Within The Industry... !!!!!
Because of These Sheep Who Choose To Be Meek...

So Therefore DO NOT Speak On How They're MADE TO BE... !!!

PUPPETS Like The Muppets Who Act Like Crabs In Buckets... !!!!!
While Those Who Choose To Speak The... TRUTH...
Are Seen As Crews Who CAN'T BE Used... ?!?

I Guess Because They WON'T BE USED... !?!

To... " Play The FOOL "...
When They've Been Schooled... !!!

The TRUTH Is It's EXCLUSIVE To Be Someone Whose Music...
Gets To Be INCLUDED In Being Seen As GROOVING... !!!

They're Seen As Being Artists When They HIT Profit Margins... !!!
When All They've Done Is BARGAIN To Get Their Music Charted...

Producers TOO Be... " Cooling' "....
On Artistry That's Movements Are Challenging And Prudent...

They'd Rather Be Producing ...
For Music That's Recouping...
BIG BUCKS For Sounding STUPID... !!!!!

And Artists Who Be Choosing...
To Do Music That's Proving That Artistry IS... LOSING... !!!!!

It's Really Quite INCREDIBLE... !!!
What They'll Do Cos' It's... " SELLABLE "... !!!!!

Setting Up Their Schedule To Work On Instrumentals...
That CLEARLY EARN Them Medals... !!!
For Stooping To ... "low levels"... !?!

And Nowadays The... " Lyrical "...
Is Seen As Being......................... Dismissible.......
Because It's CLEARLY NOT What THE INDUSTRY Wants... !!!
So This Verse HERE Is CRITICAL To The Industry's UMBILICAL... !!!!!

Because It's Chord DOES NOT Enforce... !!!!
Those Whose CREATIVITY's Made To FEED The... INDUSTRY...

If Your Art's Made For WEALTH...
You NEED TO... CHECK Yourself... !!!

And RECOGNISE THE HELL That Comes For Souls Who SELL... !!!
The DEVIL Has Lived WELL.. Off INDUSTRY Type Smells... !!!!

So Those Who NOW COMPLAIN About The Game TODAY...
Should RECOGNISE THEIR PLACE UPON The... " Wall of SHAME "... !!!

BEFORE Saying What They Say... !!!!!
Because THE ROLE They've PLAYED...

Has Shown How They've ENSLAVED...
The ARTISTRY... They CLAIM... !!!!!

To Be Their INSPIRATION For Making Their CREATIONS...

If MONEY Is Your PRICE For... DEVOTING Your Time...
To Creating Art That's FINE And UNIQUE By Design...

Then RECOGNISE The Line...
That You CROSS EVERY TIME...
You CHOOSE To Make The Music...
That You Say... KEEPS POLLUTING...
Our NEW... CREATIVE Minds... !!!!!

... I'm Gonna Say That TWICE ... !!!!!

If Money Is Your PRICE... ?
For... DEVOTING Your Time...
To Creating Art That's FINE...
and UNIQUE By Design...

Then RECOGNISE The Line...
That You CROSS EVERY TIME...
You CHOOSE To Make The Music...
That You Say KEEPS POLLUTING...
Our NEW... CREATIVE Minds... !!!!!

When YOU KEEP Contributing...
To ART That Should Be... "MUTED"... !!!

And RUN AWAY From Movements...
Where Art DEFINES IMPROVEMENTS... !!!!!
Because of What It... CHOOSES... !!!

To Deal In MORE THAN LOOSENESS... !!!

And Artistry That's... " Coolness "...
Comes From Being... TOOTHLESS... ?!!!?

I Guess They'll Say THIS PIECE of ART...
Comes From A Place That's WAY TOO DARK... !!!

So WON'T Get A PASS To CLIMB UP The Charts... !!!
And SHINE Like A STAR.... "Okay, Blah DI Blah !" …

These INDUSTRY Farts REALLY Make ME Laugh... !!!!!!!!

But THESE WORDS Impart...
REAL VERSE That PIERCES Through THEM And Weak Hearts... !!!

From Producers To Rappers To... Singers And Actors...
One Day You'll NEED Answers For What You Have Done... !!!

DON'T PLAY That You're Dumb When It Comes To Your Stunts...
WHO You Have Worked With And WHO You Have.............. SHUNNED... !!!

To Get Your Art NOTICED Because It LACKS DOPENESS'... !!!

COMPROMISE ISN'T Cool...
If That's What You've USED...
To Get Yourself INTO...
A Game That's NOW RULED...
By Art That Now PROVES...
How Artists Have SOLD TRUE Artistry... short... !!!!!!

And Have Made A NEW BREED of Fans Who Now FEED...
On Art That Is MADE NOT FOR THEM But For Heads...
Who Could ... REALLY CARE LESS ... !!!!!!

About... REAL Artistry... !!!!!

So... As I've Now Said...
If YOU'RE One of THEM DON'T EVER COMPLAIN... !!!
Cos' You Should Be ASHAMED of... " PLAYING The Game "...

Where Artistry's Drained...................................
For What's FAKE To GAIN FAME... !!!

You're Just PROVING How Weak...
That You... TRULY BE...
By Sowing THE SEEDS...

That FEED The....

...... " INDUSTRY "......
