Avant Garde

Witness The Black Ramones Making UK Garage Rap: THEY HATE CHANGE

They Hate Change is at the forefront of the punk movement in hip-hop. This duo of producers/lyricists makes tracks that ride the waves of grime, UK garage, and jungle while still staying true to the creative spirit of US underground hip-hop flows and peppered with FL sounds. What they do is DIY and genre-bending and provoking and anti-system. I can tell THC knows that change is the only constant and they’re masters of it. And like all of the musicians and artists I like most, they’d rather be playing a house show than a stadium.

Backend, backend, backend, everybody talking bout backends
You getting fucked over on a work for hire, should’ve read your contract back then
Politicians still handing out lapdances, Major Labels do the same, all backhanded
Ad dollars take a toll on your advance, playlist for stream, couple half cents, Madness
Do the math on a hundred million streams, that’s 300 hundred bands, rappers as broke as they fans
Cause 6 percent of that percentage, then taxed and delivered is 16 Grand
That SoundCloud rapper contract on demand
Your A&R left now you stranded
Better hope you had a keyman or a backup plan, or the fanbase to run it independent
Stream Era don’t love nobody, niggas thinking they could do the Billie Eillish
That’s a inside job if you watching, but I’m sleep I ain’t talking bout nothing
50/50 bustdown on the Profit, underground, got the game from the Deathbomb
Got the Bandcamp doing handstands, selling tapes like weight, name your price for WAVs
