The music business is the world’s second-largest.
But for a growing number of people in the US, the music business has become a kind of ghetto.
A lot of the artists and producers in the industry have been targeted by the police, or targeted for their race.
Many of them are black, and it’s hard to make money on the side.
“We have been told we’re not allowed to make records.
It’s not as easy to get on the radio.
It takes a long time to get a record,” says Jamiroquai’s Nellie Blythe, a black woman who’s worked with Black Eyed Peas, Jamiyadonna, and many others.
“It’s hard, because it’s so close to home, to see your children, or see your parents.
But I feel like it’s important that we be part of the conversation.”
Nellie says the only way she could make a living on her own was to record for white people.
“If I can make enough money to do that, then I can afford to go and get a tattoo, and that’s what I’ve been doing,” she says.
“When I come out here, I want to get my tattoos on my back and have a little black piece of paper.”
Black artists are making some changes, but not enough to make a difference.
“I want to say, ‘Look, I’m not going to go away, because we’re in the middle of a war.
You need to take care of yourselves,'” says DJ Jazzy Jeff.
“But you can’t be complacent.”
The problem of violence, racism, and police brutality There’s a growing movement to reform the system.
Black Lives Matter started in the U.S. in 2014 and has been gaining momentum since.
The Black Lives Matter movement is led by activist and former President Barack Obama, and has gained momentum in recent years.
The group has called for reforms, including ending racial profiling and using data to create a national database on police violence.
Black Lives matter activists have been protesting against police brutality, and they have succeeded in some cities, including Baltimore and Ferguson, Missouri.
But many others, like Ferguson, are still reeling from years of violence.
And some of the country’s biggest artists are still struggling.
“If you look at the mainstream artists who are still doing their thing, and the mainstream record labels, they’re not doing it,” says Black Eyeds Peas’ Jami roquai.
“They’re not taking a stand because they can’t make a dollar off it.
We’re still fighting the war, and we’re still working.
But we’re also just waiting to get back to doing what we love to do.
And we’re just hoping that we can do that on our own terms, and not be part on the margins.”
Black artists like Nellies Blyth, DJ Jami and Nelly are part of that.
They’re trying to make their voices heard and get the message out.
They want to change the way music is made and sold, and make sure that there are better solutions to issues that need addressing.
“I want the music industry to change and I want it to stop having to pay a white person $2,500 to make it.
That’s not right,” says Nelly.
“That’s the reality.
If you make money, that’s your money.
That money is going to your family and your friends, and your business and your community.
That $2k is not going back into the hands of white people, or to black people, and to white people that have a vested interest in this business.”
In the Black Eyeddest podcast, Jamin shares a story of how she became involved with the Black Lives Matters movement and was inspired by its message of justice.
“You know, it’s not just a story that you can write about in your head.
It took me time to realize that we’re all human beings, and I’m human,” says DJ jazzy.
“We are not the same.”
Jamin’s story, along with those of many other black artists, is inspiring and inspiring, but it’s also deeply troubling.
The problem of violent crime is still a problem for many Black people in this country.
Black people are three times more likely to be killed by police officers than white people .
Black people are also twice as likely to end up in jail as white people for nonviolent crimes like traffic violations.
And Black people have been the target of police brutality in the past.
Black Americans are just as likely as white Americans to be shot and killed by the state, and more than twice as often killed by other people, according to a 2016 study by the American Civil Liberties Union.
In the podcast, DJ jamiro, who is also the owner of a small record label called The Black Keys, talks about the problems that he and his family have
