Nick Cannon Speaks On How Eminem’s Music Career Blossomed Through Capitalism. On a recent interview with Vlad TV Nick Cannon spoke on the issue of capitalism in the music industry, and pointed how it has specifically groomed Eminem’s career.
The TV personality highlighted that women mostly white women are the ones who are more likely to buy music.
“Hip Hop music, the people that buy Hip Hop music are white people, specifically white girls. Like if you look at the actual demographics and how it all breaks down, well music in general. Even when you look at the streaming numbers.
“Women, number one, are the biggest connoisseurs when it comes to consumption. When you break down demographically how it all works — from the fanbases to the girls who buy tickets and are screaming in the front rows, they create the stars.”
He continues, “Us as guys, we sit back and we respect cats — we respect Nas, we respect Hov, we respect E-40 and [Ice] Cube and we can sit there and talk about them, but we ain’t gonna go out and fanboy for the muthafucka. Fanning for somebody is where the money is.”
He added that Eminem was like second coming of Christ to the music industry, and that his credibility built on capitalism.
“When you get a blonde-haired white boy that is actually dope, that’s like the second coming of Christ to the music industry,” he continues. “Because you gonna get all of the credibility, like dude you can’t deny that he’s dope. He’ll get in front of anybody, battle anybody. Then ,the fact it’s like, ‘Oh shit! I can sell and market this muthafucka like Pepsi? And he’s crazy and entertaining too? Oh, he’s a superstar. Oh he’s Elvis on crack.’”
