I was really happy when I heard blackpink is getting a mini album, but at the same time I’m not excited? First of all, I know it’ll take ages till the mini album comes out. When it comes out it’ll have 1 title song and 1 b tracks (if yg is feeling good) and 1 version of the title song, and if he’s nice enough he’ll also include their older title songs. Yg will probably not promote them well, thinking his artists don’t need promotions because they’re already “big”.
Thinking that YG is no longer part of the Big3 is such a reach, they keep making money, they keep releasing music that becomes #1 right away, they are doing just fine, stop your delusions, and actually look at the facts, before saying that BigHit is now part of the Big3 with just one act, or that the feel threatened.
YG gets most of the hate for not promoting their artists very well but all of the big three sucks when it comes to promotions. YG is the most obvious with the dungeon and all. SM decides it’s a great idea to promote all their idols at the same time, lowering their chances of getting a trophy and JYP is like a child with a new toy. He will constantly promote a group until a newer and shinier one comes along then chucks the other group away.
Big three privilege is not real. When you audition for SM, JYP OR YG, you’re against the best in the country, they have lines of people wanting to audition and get into the company. If someone gets into the big three, they really must be talented, because in those companies you’re always just a number, easily replaceable. The training is also really hard in those companies, they starve you in sm, you’re overworked in JYP (look at twice) and you don’t know if you’ll ever debut in yg
We all know YG could do so much better. He’s capable of so much and yet he limits his groups to one album a year, keeps the trainees waiting and is now going to have to recover with Big Bang serving in the military. Great company with great artists but nothing seems to be done.
if only Yang Hyun Suk showed as much love for 2NE1 and their members during Boms scandal as he showed with Big Bang and T.O.P’s scandal with the #bigbangonlyhas5members Instagram post then maybe 2NE1 might still be promoting. What can I say, I’m nos surprised by the actions of a sexist.
I can’t believe Jinny and SeoYoung left YG Entertainment. I mean I don’t blame them but now I know that we’re never gonna get f2ne1 or that new girl group he was talking about because there’s practically know one left there.
I feel like people really overrate YG rappers. Don’t get me wrong, I love YG artists and their rappers aren’t bad by any means, plus I’m no rap expert, but people act like their rappers are gods compared to every other idol rapper. Uh, no? Their rappers are for the most part solid (though I personally don’t like GD’s or CL’s style) but it’s not like YG is the only company with good rappers. They aren’t even the best idol rappers (except arguably Mino), let alone the best rappers in general.
