Santogold - L.E.S. Artistes [Official Music Video]

Music is disposable. The world we live in, in "real time", has no respect for longevity. artists are chewed up and spit out. Santogoold, with this single, and an amazing album, should fight to remain strong. Even if it means doing what another pioneer, Dizzee Rascal, did, by joining forces with the underground here in the US, and signing with Def Jux records. She is another recruit into a world of leeches, disguised as agents, producers, labels. A Tribe Called Quest, after releasing The Low End Theory, one of th greatest hip-hop albums ever, received less than $30,000 for record sales. As the GZA said on Liquid Swords, "you gotta read the labels."
