An Open Letter to Kanye West

By now, I’m sure you have all seen Kanye’s “banned” artwork for his upcoming album. It has caused quite a stir all over the web. Over at The 1st Five, John-Michael Bond wrote a pretty fantastic article about how Kanye could essentially save music.

But the two main killers of the music industry that no one is talking about is the death of social music and the death of music retail. That first one is a rant for another day, but the death of music retail is something you can have an affect on.
