We stand in a society of spectacle. The act of consuming is more important than what is being consumed. In the grand scheme, labels and the wider audience that labels cater to don't care about the details of what's being consumed (even if they say otherwise). Music is nothing more than a reflection of social status: from the types of beats we like to the types of lyrical content we gravitate towards and the personalities we see ourselves in - it is all a product to be consumed and there's nothing wrong with that, doesn't make it any less valid as art. It all exists in a cycle. But of course...that's not all it has to be if you choose, you can make it so much more.
