Why is it so hard for objectivists to make it in underground hip hop?

Quora: Why is it so hard for objectivists to make it in underground hip hop?

I find that people in the world of underground will show some interest in hearing my music until they find out it is objectivist-themed. I hate to say it but I feel the world of underground hip hop is prejudiced against objectivists music. Why is this?

    One could make a fairly compelling case that most gangsta rap, with themes of money-at-all-cost, always looking out for #1, and the constant glorification of self, is already pretty inline with objectivist philosophy.

      The difference is that unlike objectivists, gangsta rappers have life experience.
