Re: “The World Loves B.o.B — Why Doesn’t Atlanta?

"Or 98% of the Atlanta population are haters."

Well, because Atlanta sucks. There are great restaurants and a cool art scene and nature and all, but such a large amount of the people here - across all racial and socio-economical classes - are so astonishingly self-absorbed and just fckng stupid. The local govt is so ridiculously inept; even when they are paid off, they cannot do their fckng jobs. The mayor and city council members are so concerned with making side deals and making Atlanta look appealing to tourists that they cannot be bothered to make it livable for residents. I don't know....maybe it's just that way all over now...

"When I first came out, I had 'Haterz' and wanted people to know I was more than just a rapper," says B.o.B, ashing his blunt. "But then when I became a pop star," he says, his eyes widening and his hands making an explosion gesture, "I was like, noooooo, I'm a rapper!"
That's from Mr B himself, so it's not just fans ' n ' potential fans who may not ber sure where his car is parked ! [ :) ]

Re: “The World Loves B.o.B — Why Doesn’t Atlanta?

It's a simple answer: bob doesnt make ATL trap music in a post 2000 music world. When Burno Mars and Paramore are doing the heavy lifting of singing your hooks - the "hood" opinion of you will be not good.

If he kept making songs like Haters Everywhere I Go - he would be just as loved as TI, Jeezy, and the like.

Used to know his brother Jamal back in the day so it makes me an expert on this topic ;)

Re: “The World Loves B.o.B — Why Doesn’t Atlanta?

I don't think Makonnen "flaked"..he couldn't get into the venue because of security/crowd/etc. Kind of unfair to say he flaked, like he didn't give a F.

Re: “The World Loves B.o.B — Why Doesn’t Atlanta?

Nobody ever blows up at home, especially in the south. Atlanta and the surrounding areas are known for making people leave in order to be appreciated in all but a few cases. But it's like everything else, I guess. If people saw you come up and knew you before you were cool, they're not always going to acknowledge that you're the man to people who didn't see it. They'd rather go on and on about how they remember when you had to borrow money from them to eat, or how you used to have to stand on line at Club Kaya, etc., etc. Southern pride is sometimes more of a singular thing, because success in the south is usually much more humbled so that it'll appear to be as regular and slow-burning as everyone else. It's just part of the culture maybe. Not that this doesn't mean it sucks, but it is what it is, sorta like racism and all the other things that come with being from a place people consider "country."

Playing his annual Christmas Eve show at Smith's Olde Bar; because regardless if Atlanta loves him, he loves Atlanta.

Re: “A3C field guide

Regarding the "Hip Hop and Social Responsibility" panel, I'm glad there is at least some effort to acknowledge the concept of responsibility in the hip hop community. I'm eager to see how this goes. Seriously. Is there also going to be a panel on basic etiquette?

Re: “A3C field guide

I wonder, will the "Hip Hop and Social Responsibility" panel be anywhere near the WorldStarHipHop stage?
