Nas on Being Accessible in the Digital Age

Monday, September 17th, 2012

Occaisonally tech news site Tech Crunch will let an entrepreneur, CEO or celebrity plug their digital wares through a guest blog post on the site. Over the weekend they published a post by Nas called “Being More Accessible” in which he pumps his new shopping site 12Society.com and talks about using the internet to become more accesible to fans and promote music. It’s a cool piece, but I’m thinking it was probably ghostwritten:

I truly believe we are at an incredible inflection point in the consumer retail experience: Just how Amazon and eBay opened the railways to a new universe of available products, and Groupon allowed for the discovery of local activities to become accessible and affordable, new resources are changing the entire game once again.

You’re gonna tell me that thought came out of Nas’ head? I’m guessing that part was written by one of his more tech-savvy partners in 12Society. At the very least, somebody slid the Little Homie some talking points. Either way, I don’t care, because at least whoever wrote it is saying stuff like this:

When piracy hit the entertainment industry, artists were distraught and began distrusting their own fan bases. In truth, it was a response borne from confusion rather than logic. The passion the fans had for what we were creating never went away; we just had to evolve to survive in the new digital world.

A huge aspect of that evolution is offering a glimpse into your lifestyle — being more accessible. The power that Twitter, Facebook, YouTube, and Instagram offer is immense. Being an artist today is not only about being creative in what you produce, but finding creative ways to show people what you’re doing. Artists everywhere took notice when Louis C.K. sold his stand-up special and show tickets without a network backing him on the promotion and distribution. That truly was innovation at its best.

Wow, a Louis C.K. shoutout huh? Somebody has been doing their homework. If you’re gonna pander to the nerds who read Tech Crunch, a name drop like that goes a long way.
