LG’s W.T.F. “Learn The Words”

Posted by LG |

I’ve been watching music videos for as long as I could remember. I’ve been a journalist for 5 years, and a music journalist for 1 of those years. I know a thing or two about what makes a good video. Not knowing your words isn’t one of them.

Please tell me what possessed y’all to think it was okay to release videos in which YOU, as the artist, can’t rap your own words!? And lets just say that take, you messed up. It happens. Why use that take!? Why not do it over, and film yourself, you know – actually knowing your song. Music videos are supposed to take your music to the next level. How do you expect to do that when you clearly don’t know the words? It totally takes me out of whatever you have going on in the video, to wonder about why you can’t learn your song. Have you ever seen Em, or Jeezy, or Jay put out a video in which they didn’t know the words!? No. It doesn’t happen. So stop being okay with being mediocre at best.

Magic”, song title calls him “KidMagic”, Twitter calls him “Kiidd Magic”, and so on and so forth, how are his fans supposed to connect to his brand?
