Surprised That I Love Fonzworth Bentley’s Fireside Chat

I’m so surprised that I really, really love Fonzworth Bentley’s Fireside Chat.  This brother has “some sense” as my grandma would say.  He is underestimated.  He is also signed to Kanye West’s G.O.O.D. Music.  His debut album, Cool Outrageous Lovers of Uniquely Raw Style or C.O.L.O.U.R.S. was slated to drop in 2008, but was delayed.  Wonder why they are sleeping on this Morehouse alum.

Oh the apologies that he gave out need to be given out so so so so bad.  I know all those artists were like, “Yes!  Finally!”.  Come on hip hop A&R people.  Yall got to stop giving deals to people who sound like they read and spell on a 3rd grade level.

    This is fantastic! I know why they haven’t dropped this yet. The record companies couldn’t handle it if thoughtful hip hop produced by educated folks who won’t settle for crappy contracts became successful. If that happened then they would have to share the revenue fairly. Even black owned record companies don’t want this to happen. Share the revenues and profits with the artists who create the product? Why do that when they can continue to make millions by exploiting ignorance, violence, misogyny and self hatred.

    Thank you so much for sharing this with us!

  2. Thanks for sharing this. I love the song and the video, but I can’t help but snort at his apologizing to Tupac and NWA for hip hop. Really??

    Last time I checked, those two (Tupac and NWA) needed to apologize to us for hip hop and their part in its exploitation and demise.
