    Kutt's " Calling My Name"

    First of all, I think its a sick beat. And Kutt flows really well on this song. But how can Kutt complain about not selling enough records? He is touring with the greatest rapper of all time. He is lucky just to be involved with Tech N9ne. He complains about not being able to feed the 6 kids that he has. He mentions that making music is in his "ligaments", well then he should learn to accept the fact that in today's day and age, not very many people buy music albums anymore, and that is why touring is so important now. The fact of the matter is, if you make really good music, people will purchase it. He is not on that level.



    <font ="BACKGROUND-COLOR: #fff4f2">As far as your responses go, understand that these are my PERSONAL OPINIONS and you dont need to call me a "faggot" or whatever some of you guys do when you hear anything negative about an artist on Strange Music. There would be nothing to talk about on the message boards if everybody agreed. Much love to Tech N9ne!</font>

    yeah, it's kind of stupid that he's bitching about his album sales.
    but it made a good song and i do understand where he's coming from.

    Well who are the posers that are goin up to him and telling him "Kutt Kalhoun is the shit". You don't think that most of the fans are going up to Tech and telling him that instead of Kutt?

    You mean Calhoun. And comparing that to Tech is completely different. Tech sells enough records that its believable that when someone comes up to him and says "oh Tech that album was the shit", that they actually bought the album. Kutt, on the other hand, doesnt. He probably gets almost the same amount of people telling him that his album is awesome as much as Tech does, yet his first week album sales are 1/10 of Tech's. Obviously this is mostly due to Tech having a much larger fan base, but I'm sure a lot of it is also people DLing Kutt's albums. Ill admit that during the K.O.D. tour first time I went VIP, i talked to Kutt and told him how badass Feature Presentation was. I do not own that album to this day. I did however buy Raw and Unkutt, and completely understand why he would make that song.

    Listen here brospeh, Kutt was just being brutally honest in the song you described. A type of honesty that we as fans thirst for within modern hiphop.

    Honesty that we should all expect from a modern day poet. Thats what the word R.A.P. is comprised of isnt it?? Rhythm and poetry. Yes kutty filed his grievances on this track. Of course we as humans have questioned loyalty in our lifetime.

    Thats what kutty did on this track, but this track did more than just complain about the downside of his profession.

    The conclusion of the track had more of a redemptive twist for its climax. Kutty states
    "so unless i croak,I aint never going to rest my throat,and will not depend on the likes of men cause God will bless my soul" meaning that as long as he is alive he will remain doing what he loves because his faith in God will ensure he is taken care of.

    So in other words dont be worried because Kutty is an artist first and foremost and artists never stop painting they just take breaks.

    in my opinion, his misplaced priorities are to blame. The guy's "buying out bars" and talking about his car for 3 songs, yet he complains about not being able to feed his family...
