The people who buy hip hop music are white people: Nick Cannon
"Hip hop music—the people who buy hip hop music are white people. Specifically, are white girls. If you look at the demographics, the way it all breaks down...well, music in general...even when you look at the streaming numbers, women, number one, are the biggest connoisseurs of music when it comes to consumption. And then when you break down demographically how it all works from the fanbases to the girls who buy tickets and screaming in the front rows. They create the stars." "Us as guys, we sit back and we respect cats,""We respect Nas, we respect Hov, we respect [E-40] and [Ice] Cube. We can sit and talk about 'em, but we ain't gon' go out and fanboy for [them]...So when you get a blond-haired white boy that is actually dope, that's like the second coming of Christ to the music industry, because you're gonna get all of the credibility. You can't deny that [Eminem's] not dope. Get in front of anybody. Battle anybody. Then it's like, oh sh*t, I can market and sell this motherf*cker like Pepsi? And he's crazy and entertaining, too?"
Nick Cannon states while throwing light on the fact that black men feel some other way. According to him, the kind of success that Eminem has come across emerges from the background where black music resides. He further talked about artists like Elvis Presley as well as The Beatles to express how both of them also got accused of the same.
VLAD tv has recently posted a video on this where Cannon is seen talking about all of this openly and in detail. Check it out for more information.
