There are innovators in rap and then there are emulators. A look at what biting means in the year 2014.
"In the music business, the going is tough for original talent. Everybody is being exploited through paid-for publicity, and most anybody can become a great name if he can afford enough of it. In the end, the public believes what it reads. So it is often difficult for the real talent to break through. Anyway, Monk said, ‘We are going to get a big band started. We’re going to create something that they can’t steal because they can’t play it.’ So the boppers worked out a music that was hard to steal.” —Mary Lou Williams, 1955
