EDITORIAL: World Star
Hip Hop– Hip Hop’s Friend or Foe?
Myself as well as many other Hip Hop heads feel that WorldStarHipHop.com should have remained shut-down when it went offline and the government seized the site a couple of months ago.
We should not support this website, and we have MANY reasons for not doing so. I could go on for days about why YOU shouldn’t support the website either, but i’m just going to list five of the most OBVIOUS reasons.
1. World Star Hip Hop is the epitome of Coonery, Buffoonery and is an embarrassment to black people.
WorldStarHipHop basically takes all of the negative black stereotypes and streamlines them all into one website. Personally, i’m a person who is about breaking negative stereotypes and uplifting my race. WorldStar seems to do the opposite. Black people fighting, Black People shooting, Black people robbing, Black People acting like savages, Black People selling crack etc…
Is this the image of Black People that we want to constantly put out there for the world to see? Just so the world can continue to justify their bias towards African Americans.
2. Good Music costs Money, Violence is FREE.
If I’m an upcoming artist that wants to have my music video featured on WorldStar, they want a TON of money for it. But if I film myself punching a random guy in the face, WorldStar will showcase it for free. What kind of bullshit is that?
I cannot continue to support a website that milks hungry artists who are trying to make a name for themselves, by charging crazy amounts of money to be featured on their site. Instead, they’d rather showcase any piece of ignorance they can find on the internet free of charge. They are just taking advantage and pimping all of you up and coming rappers.
3. They don’t REALLY support Hip Hop.
Out of the 40+ videos that show up on WorldStar Daily, not even half of them are even Hip Hop related. They call themselves WORLD – STAR – “HIP HOP” Once again…
WORLD STAR…HIP HOP
This is what they Entitle themselves as, but do they even really support Hip Hop? I see more videos of girls performing sexual acts behind their boyfriends back & girls ripping each others wigs out than I see of actual Hip Hop.
It’s so bad, artist are starting to submit fight videos, with their music showcased at the end just so WorldStar will play the shit.
4. After 5+ years, The Website Still looks like Shit & Has too many ADS.
Seriously, with all of the money the owner make gets from this website, you would think he could spend at least a fraction of that money to redesign the site so it won’t look like it was created in 1991 right?
The way the site looks correlates directly the content of the site. It shows that they care nothing about improving or changing the site or it’s content, they’re just looking for the next video of some guy getting knocked the fuck out. It’s obvious whoever created this just slapped it together.
Not only that, but WorldStar is so thirsty for money, that they have allowed ads to take over the website. If I want to view a video I have to keep clicking the small ‘X’ to close that AD that’s taking up half of the fucking window.
And then, there’s a separate Video Ad window that opens in the background and plays simultaneously with the video I’m watching.
So I have to….
a.) pause the video i’m watching…
b.) find the ad, close it out, just so I can hear the video I was originally trying to watch.
FUCKING Ridiculous, and last…. BUT DAMN SURE NOT THE LEAST
5. They recycle old videos and pass them off as new.
Who the fuck does that? Not only do they promote ignorance and stupid shit, but they recycle ignorance and stupid shit over and over again. Is there not enough NEW ignorant shit happening? And to make things worse, they would NEVER re-upload a music video or anything positive. Instead, they upload the same videos of girls shaking ass in front of their kids over and over again.
Why would I keep logging into WorldStar to see the same videos I saw in
2009? talk about rewind button?….shieeet CHILD PLEASE.
So, to sum it up, WorldStar does nothing but promote ignorance and stupid shit, NOT support hip hop, take advantage of hard working artists, Bombard people with ads so they can make more money, and recycle videos.
Do you really want to keep supporting a site like this?
