Bubba Sparxxx: Pimp and Child Predator??
Paul Porter, co-founder of industryears.com is not pleased with the song, the marketing campaign behind it (no pun intended) and the outlets that continue to support the record.
Station after station continue to play Virgin Record's rap star and watch it's pornographic links rise to number one on Billboards chart,Porter says in a statement on the web site.
Ive heard the record and the shit just makes me laugh, Porter says of the song.
One of his biggest issues rests with the marketing campaign surrounding the record.
Porter calls the Msnewbooty.com web site into question for providing easy access to adult material by minors.
For those unaware, Msnewbooty.com allows fans to submit their best back shots for a chance to win a spot in a future Bubba Sparxxx video.
Children, tweens and teens continue to make the song title one of the most watched sites of elementary school children. Complete with links to "Girls Gone Wild" and parent company Virgin Records, not a soul in radio has said no, he says.
Im all for freedom of speech, but theres such an imbalance out here. Id hate to be eight years old listening to the radio, the only thing Id be thinking about is fuckin and cutting a pound of blow up. Theres such an imbalance in the music. I call that rap and Hip Hop is so much more.
Porter goes on to liken marketing tactics such as this to pimping and compares executives to child predators.
Radio and Records are the new "Hustle and Flow", only difference is that the government fails to arrest these corporate child predators. The internet has pornographic sites, now radio directs children straight to X rated pornography.
