RapIndie is always evolving. People have disagreements about the choices the platform makes. It's not really in the spirit of "indie" specification to attempt to sell ALL of hip hop. That was never really our vision. However, the community seems to solely be looking for that.

In my opinion, the real problem is the continuity of being a part of something hateful. Hot lips; Doritos evolution; How diverse are the Black Panthers ever really going to be? I think "normalizing stereotypes" seems noble but it's dangerous because if you see a very low brow rapper and develop a hate or vanity from it, it's hurting the culture even if there are millions of them.
