A long time ago, we were told that RapIndie was teaching cherry picking. We decided to give less prolific artists more shine to offset doing that. Now, we've learned that cherry picking isn't caused by our example but is simply an organic issue that is a little more complex than elitism. 
We love hip hop culture. However, you can tell when a song has alienated its other markets. It doesn't require a phd to write music that other cultures can enjoy. Country music really isn't that complicated.

Another problem is, because the internet has become more of a business, the richest artists are wildly more popular than the talented artists. The cultures that produce the fastest money are the only ones being heard.

We have a responsibility to carefully consider the impact of the music we promote, and we don't take that lightly.
