Kill The Art By Monte Smith 



I believe in creating poetry and music from the heart, fuck the charts but pop culture ain’t that smart, it just wants to...KILL THE ART! 

That’s why promoters are afraid to put me on, cause if they do they may lose their 
sponsors. I said promoters are afraid to put me on the bill because they know I don’t 
give a fuck how the mainstream feels and for that, they’ve labeled me a monster.

I’ll tell radio, press and any crowd to their face, I’m here to expand your mind socially 
not reflect BET, MTV and popular radio with the non-creative, anti-intellectual, 
anti-human, thought process they embrace.

I’m tired of corporate radio bred sheep catching name and doing’ tours, you know, 
supportin’ Babylon, killin’ the message and fucking the poor, but that’s what the 
consumer is told to want – right?

And even though sheep may be sheep, what about the fact the album sucked 
and the show wasn’t tight, or what about the fact that most acts today, are no 
talent hacks who pay to play?

I believe in creating poetry and music from the heart, fuck the charts but pop culture 
ain’t that smart, it just wants to...KILL THE ART! 

The days of "being on point” are over, the non-haters security commission are armed 
with payola, designer labels and Cadillacs with suicide doors, they're known to attack 
at night blasting cooperate slaughter at the poor.

The systematic effects of FM are creating mental defects within the youth so they 
can’t hate, I mean think for themselves when they download or walk into a music 
store. 

The corporations have created a market of bought clowns who trade art for checks, 
now, the only way to get on, is to be marketable, Uncle Tom’ish and do a lil’ jig, only 
THEN, will the majors let you in, that’s why people freak if you critique. It’s so bad, 
you can’t even speak of the days when music was about talent and passion in public.

Seriously, that type of talk will leave you with your spirit bashed in and quite possibly, 
your head and stomach.

I believe in creating poetry and music from the heart, fuck the charts but pop culture 
ain’t that smart, it just wants to...KILL THE ART!

Stop killing the art then justifying it by claiming babies and home: "I got seeds to 
feed son!" Well then get a job. Don’t kill the music, now everybody thinks they can 
do it, turn on the radio… I’ll prove it!
