"...This whole epidemic of trying to get famous before getting rich is one of the biggest and most dangerous dilemmas that African-Americans get
themselves into. History has shown over and over again that brothas and sistas cannot afford to get famous before getting rich and they are usually
paying a heavy price of trying to chase fame before laying down the foundation.
Nowadays, cats want to be so desperate to get famous and be known and have no kind of skills that stand out from the crowd. I believe they watch too
much television and believe because some reality star got a little fame, that reality TV star is getting money and going places when nothing is
further from the truth. Their [Censored] is sitting at home all by themselves watching television and made up this ignorant logic in their heads.
I donít know if African-Americans know this strategy but the biggest way to attempt to take someone down is to give them too much attention in the
mainstream media. See, you sitting up there with a little fame and have to see all these cats on television talking about you, cornball bloggers
writing about you and morons on the radio analyzing you and you havenít made any money yet or landed a deal. Now you under pressure to step up to the
level they portraying you in the media and this is where most cats fall apart...."
