Do you?
Or do they simply serve to entertain you?

No, they are inanimate objects to me.

You ask this same question at least once every two months.....Which is pretty counterproductive considering the people who post here are the same 20-25 users over the last 2 years.

So what?
You all post the same songs that have been in rotation for the last 20 years.
Im not complaining bout classics so why are you?

And I genuinely want to know if you value these artists as human beings or are quite happy just merely being entertained.

Are you confusing the artists with the posters on your wall?

Is that self deprication or a wild stab in the dark corners of the web?
And you could answer me on twitter next time I tag you in the midst of psychosis.
I am genuinely remorseful about that anti semitic barb.

Mostly this. Matter of fact, when I take a good look at the person they are I usually come to the conclusion I don't have much in common with the artist and that I disagree with a lot of his behavior or views.

How is this for an answer. Depends on the artist's work.

If an artist gets personal, then I see them as a human. I cried when 'Pac died because I could relate to him. I understood his struggle, he make music to connect to me, which I see him as a person.

If your work is more superficial, then I see you as another track in my playlist. I don't relate much to Lil' Wayne. I like his tracks when I'm working out, but I just don't connect.

No...I honestly don't care about them.  Most of them are playing characters.

the ones that actually rap about real life and you can tell their stories are first hand experiences

and any that I've met in person that have been real and down to earth I'll always listen to with a new greater respect

I didn't even see this when I posted... pretty much what I was trying to say, spot on

the only artists I shed some tears for when they passed were Pimp C and Nate Dogg, when 3-2 just recently passed that also hit kinda hard

I can't relate to that. I have met a bunch of artists in my life that were actually real cool and with some I have discussed more serious issues like politics and society. Whether we agreed or not, if anything it made me respect the person more, but when I listen to a song I don't necessarily think about the person singing (or rapping). Matter of fact, one of the coolest artists I have met is a Dutch artist who makes horrible music; you'd have to pay me to listen to this guy. lol

I personally wouldn't even approach artists that I don't listen to if the opportunity was there but it's like for example Uncle Murda, who I've been rocking with since 2006, I got to meet down at SXSW and I initially thought he would be a stand-off type dude based on his music but he was actually chill as fuck and down to earth, chopped it up for a few minutes and wasn't in a hurry to run off

but then Yelawolf is a guy that I always respected but never got into his music heavy like that or listened to him often, and he actually approached me just to compliment my Pimp C jersey that I was wearing at the time asking where I bought it and what not (also a day after he paid for everybody in a gas station where we had first saw him) lol so just off strength of that experience I'll always keep an open ear to his new material and if it's dope enough I'll cop it

I honestly don't give two shits about the artists as long as whatever happens to them doesn't impede on their continuous release of material. That doesn't mean I wish them bad or anything, just that me and them are two different worlds and I don't necessarily have the time to care about any of that.

I know a lot of the artists are good people though.

All of them, even if I don't like them.
