Joe Budden believes that Hip Hop is in a terrible place at the moment and brought up the use of AI.
"Everybody can't go do a show, everybody can't get a song on a playlist," he said on the The GAUDS Show, according to AllHipHop. "Everybody can't access their fans or the information behind these units that they're moving. It’s dark out there. [People] don’t know how to respond to AI, label people are leaving for the tech companies, they’re playing all types of stock games at the top. Selling IPOs … their artists are not getting one red penny. It’s disgusting out there."
Many others have expressed concern about AI, like Jay-Z's engineer Young Guru who criticized Timbaland for using it to do a song with The Notorious B.I.G.
