KANYE WEST ‏@kanyewest Feb 15
To Pitchfork, Rolling Stone, New York Times, and any other white publication. Please do not comment on black music anymore.

Hip hop is a black and latino genre but publications somehow hardly hire any blacks, asians and latino. WTFT

Blackie there to entertain bro. Whites want to control what gets put out or what they will get behind. Hence most rap reviews on those sites are trash.

Sadly most of these publications will only freelance black writers

And don't just focus on writing. How many black editors are in the business? How many black people own the outlets we go to for rap information?

can't say i'm surprised tho :mhmm:
Complex is sadly one of the more balanced publications that deals with music,they intentionally keep it at a near even mix of white black Asian Latino and women. But that's including all the areas through which complex dips it's hands into the Internet. Sports, op eds, sneakers, etc

Iv read articles from black writers on these sites. They're just outsourced from freelancers.
