Tossing Salt Presents:
Music Fact or Fiction
Kanye, Eminem, Suge Knight & More
October 6, 2018
It’s been a while since we’ve done one of these. It’s the Fact or Fiction thing, the music edition. Time to sing the blues, listen for clues and do what we doobie-doobie do’s. Lots of Kanye stuff and a few statements about Eminem, Suge Knight and mixing politics with celebrity. It’s a stacked and loaded column. Let’s do this…
Kanye West has gone insane?
FICTION: The key word is is “has gone” insane. He’s always be an egomaniac and somewhat on the bat-shit crazy side of things. That’s what makes him the talented, yet annoying ass-clown that he is and has always been. Just because he’s gotten smart and realizes just how screwed up the liberal left and Trump Haters really are doesn’t make him any less crazy. It just means that he’s finally getting it right.
Eminem is the greatest rap artist of all time?
FACT: Name a better rap artist then Mr. Mathers. Go ahead! I’ll wait! Can’t do it because record sales don’t lie and the real “Slim Shady” is the top guy in his chosen genre and will remain so for many years to come.
Musical artists should keep their political views to themselves?
FACT: ALL entertainers should keep their business and personal opinions apart. No one wants to go to a concert and hear a political speech. Whatever the views of the performer, spouting political nonsense and talking points will automatically piss off at least half the people who might otherwise be fans and supporters. It just doesn’t make sense to be political when you’re an entertainer. It’s definitely not best for business.
Suge Knight’s sentence of 28 years is fair and just.
FICTION: He only got 28 years after a lifetime of being a thug, a bully, a thief, a piece of shit and yes, a murderer, He’s getting off light if you ask me. He deserves far more prison time for all the crap and crimes he’s responsible for over the years.
Kanye West will be successful in arranging a meeting between President Trump and Colin Kaepernick.
FICTION: For a meeting to happen, there has to be something in if for both sides and Trump has nothing to gain by meeting with this clown and doing so will only give the fake protester credibility that he doesn’t deserve and give the biased news media more ammo to use against the President. While President Trump clearly appreciates the recent support that Kanye has thrown in his direction, I don’t think it’s enough to make Trump waste his time in a meeting with Colin.
And there you go. Thoughts, opinions and any questions welcome and appreciated. Thank you for reading. And until the next time, take care and don’t forget to listen to the music. Take it easy.
