PumpTheBeat.com | “Blog Star” Status Revoked

So, I’ve spent a lot of time roasting talentless, delusional rappers as well as exposing the fraudulent tactics they use to boost their online stats and depraved egos. I’d like to start spending some time tearing apart the enablers of these inept artists; the shitty, ignorant music bloggers.

The majority of the children who run these music blogs have no musical background and no understanding of song structure, musical theory, chords, harmonies or melodies. They do however, know how to say things like “dope” and “tight” when attempting to justify why they posted a song or artist. 90% of these music blogs are all the same. They race to post the same substandard songs so that they can be the first to tweet the link to the artist in hopes of gaining a new follower. They are all essentially internet prostitutes who may as well be calling out “sucky sucky five dollar!”. Instead of sharpening a skill of their own, these bloggers get their rocks off trying to become the biggest hype machine so they can feel like they are part of the scene. I encourage you to really look at the content your favorite blog is posting. I for one refuse to get my music from some uneducated child whose lifelong goal is to get a retweet from Mac Miller.

Yesterday, I received an email from someone who decided to post a comment on one of these blogs, calling them out for their miserable taste in music and utter lack of knowledge. The blog is PumpTheBeat.com, and the post in question was about the video from “Clev Trev” (seen above). I’d like to share the comment this guy posted and encourage others to follow suit.

“These are the shittiest lyrics I’ve EVER listened to on top of one of the BEST beats I’ve ever heard. What a COMPLETE WASTE of a song. If I was the producer of the track I would be pissed because he literally threw the DJ’s work away. There’s nothing cool about mooching off your parents and doing nothing with your life. Why would you encourage that? Especially if he’s struggled with being an addict and such, there was entirely too much potential here between the hook, the beat, and his life experiences to not bring it on this track. Lyrically its awful. I literally waited the whole song for him to turn it around and be like “But my life is getting better” or start bashing his pathetic way of life and win me over. But he never did that and I made the mistake of listening to the whole terrible song. It never got better. Really the only thing more upsetting then his lyrics as a whole is someone took the time to write down this song was good. Did you even listen to the lyrics? “His heart is in these lyrics” is the biggest joke I’ve ever heard. Don’t write about things like this. It only makes bad rappers think its a good song when it’s not and then continues to mass produce crap. Quite frankly there is enough crap in the world without us encouraging it. You want to see some heart with some old school vibe? Get some standards and go listen to some Common, kid.”

This kid was spot on. Why on Earth would you want to post a song that celebrates being an enormous pile of shit? Did this blogger even listent to the lyrics of the song, or was he too busy fighting back a boner at the thought of a new follower? Whatever the reason for posting this commendation of underachieving, the point remains the same; “Pump the Beat” has no business reviewing or sharing music with the world. Your “Blog Star” status has officially been revoked. I encourage anyone who comes across a simliar post or situation to take a minute and put these garbage bloggers in their goddamn place.

    Did you see this author’s last post? About some obscure “DJ” who played a song with vocals that had a “90′s RnB feel”, and then dropped “nasty” bass? First of all, the song is awfully spliced, no part of this song is even similar in key, and I’m pretty sure all he did was play some shitty beat created Skrillex, but ultimately discarded because it mimicked the sound of dying children, in reverse. The “90′s RnB vocals” were released in 2008, which was a VERY funny musical find (the same chick later got a Web Redemption on Tosh.0) which this dumbass would’ve found had he not been, most likely, in diapers circa 2008. As for the “nasty bass”? Not even my Bose 901′s could give this song any benefit of doubt.

    Am I claiming I’m a musical expert who has knowledge of every potential musician in existence? Well… that’d be nice for my ego, but no. I’m just basing my opinion off of near perfect perception of pitch, vast knowledge of socially conscious and emotionally moving music, and speakers that could make a emphysema-riddled tone-deaf bird sound like Beyonce.

    I wish more people would sift through all this internet garbage the way BMAD does. BMAD is for the people.

    To me, I think the entire last verse speaks about how he’s heading down a better road. I think the lyrics are of a story that need to be told, but releasing this as a first song isn’t a great idea. Is the message here relevant? Of course it is, everyone has a story that deserves to be heard, especially this kid, who apparently had a rough life and is now turning it around through music. It could be a path that a lot of other troubled kids take to help themselves. We know the song is relevant, but the second question an artist like this should ask himself is, will an audience be receptive of this message. He should have asked himself, are a bunch of bloggers and influencers and their followers going to be receptive of this song. The answer here is no. Nobody cares what you, somebody that nobody knows or cares to learn about, have been through in your life right now. Had this exact same song been released by an artist who already had a following because of prior releases, already had a loyal fan base, everyone would be praising the song. When people come to you because they already like and admire you, and then you pass a message like this along. A message to persevere and to follow your dreams no matter what life throws at you, then people will be receptive. The song, though very simple lyrically, is actually very well written except for the fact that it could highlight a little better the positives that he has now added to his life. Making good music is only half the battle, and I think this kid is well on his way in that aspect. But figuring out how to share and market that music effectively is what is going to keep you off frat star hate sites run secretly behind the name admin like this one.

    Dear Bad Music All Day,

    I’m very sorry that you did not like the song our writer (who is female, by the way) posted. Although you guys are a very small blog, I feel that your decision to call out our entire blog warrants a response, so here it is:

    If you would like to revoke our “blog star” status, you must have one yourselves, which you definitely do not. I would tell you guys to come talk to us once you did aquire one, but I don’t think that will ever happen, since you guys don’t even have a likable or logical website concept. I agree, there are a lot of talentless “musicians” out there, but don’t you guys have better things to do with your time than trash these no-name, no-potential artists? For example, I personally could not care less that Lyrx, a rapper I had never heard of prior to visiting your site, may have bought datpiff stats, and I’m sure there are plenty of people who feel the same way. Plus, if you are going to waste your time with these artist/blog “roastings,” I would suggest at least making them funny.
    What I do find funny, however, is how hypocritical your attack on our blog is. Despite your small fanbase, your posts spread the work of these “inept artists” and thus render you guys “enablers” yourselves. Ironically enough, your the ones giving us shit for promoting a song you deem poor in quality, yet you guys ONLY promote music that is poor in quality.
    I have to say, I do understand your hostility towards other bloggers; if I worked for a blog that had a smaller following than the talentless artists I devote my time to trashing, I would probably be frustrated too.

    I wish you the best of luck with your site and do hope you can prove me wrong and develop a strong following.

    Have a nice day,
    B$AP Rocky
