There it is, “hip-hop fans”. All forms of entertainment has a bunch of
product placement, but y’all call it “style/fashion/being cool/being in”
lol.

Gin & Juice is a classic song but its also a product placement for Seagrims
gin, hence Snoop’s line in the song. Seagrims were in company with
Interscope, who were in company with Death Row.

So while fans think entertainers just post random material, cars or
whatever or make a song about it, they really get paid to have yall buy
into the product. Is it wrong? No. But its funny how people dont get it.

Toom Fooord, Toom Foord anyone? Lol. Luis Vuitton Don anyone? Versace? My
Adidas?

Thats how artists get funding & grow in the business & become more – wait
for it – “relevant” (everyones fav word)!

This is not only in rap either, but this is why rap became “acceptable” in
the mainstream. It targets the young audience & the young are typically
dumb & gullible, but they set the trends & buy alot of trendy stuff since
they concerned about constantly fitting it..so use rap & rappers to help
brand products. And rappers & moguls knows this, but since fans love to
count pockets – money they should earn, i guess..
