Must say this was a really inspiring and all around insightful documentary into artistic/independent music.We encourage anyone who questions whether or not they want to really pursue anything in the music business to check out FULL COUNT: a short documentary on Count Bass D available at http://www.countbassdoc.com which features cameos from the homie DJ Pocket ,insight from Dionne Farris, and the dope bonus track “Unconditional Tough Love”.

Well with the biz we are in- if you think that the majority of people are hetero, then you’re blind. And if you don’t listen to something because someone is gay, then you’re stupid, on top of homophobic and closed minded. It’s like people not listening to r&b because it’s the music of colored people. Dude, this is 2012. Let them mofo’s live, bro. They don’t want you or me. Mo p*%#y for us.

I’m not sweating it like that.. I’m sure it’s great music and I would’ve been more amp to check it … But damn “coming out” a week before your album drops is no better than getting into a fight with Drake 2 weeks before your Album drops!! Publicity stunts make me weary music can’t be good if it can’t stand on its on merit. But this is the world we live in.. Not hate at all whatsoever … Just don’t dig the sensationalism of the game… Neil Patrick Harris is gay but still a good actor… he isn’t using that as selling point… He just does undeniable work
…then again the album sold well over 100,000 units in its first week so what do I know ?
