I saw the move "Bad Rap" and I must say that I loved it. It was very inspirational. While I myself am not an Asian rapper I can still relate to a lot of the things they went through and talked about. It also gave me an understanding from another perspective when they had industry professionals listen to their music and express why it was "good" or "bad" to them. I love Lyricks' and Dumbfoundead's music, so hearing what they had to say about them put things in a perspective where I could look at myself from the perspective of someone who doesn't rock with my music. Ultimately they still ended up doing their thing with music, so it really doesn't matter what most people like. It was really encouraging to me as an artist to not care and continue moving forward regardless of the comments from people who don't like my music or even the people who are cool with me, but are constantly telling me to change things. Not to say the opinions of those who are trying to help don't matter, but from the perspective of an artist this is your baby and certain things are just a part of you while other things are things that you don't mind changing. What those things are specifically varies from person to person, but I have found that writer's block, losing interest, feeling depressed, etc. tends to come from people trying to help telling you to change certain things that are an integral part of your creation.
