In Kendrick Lamar's song "N95," off his Mr. Morale & the Big Steppers album, he tells people to "Take off the weird-ass jewelry."

Shawn Stockman, one of the members of Boyz II Men, feels more or less the same way and posted a message about artists showing off their shine instead of their skills.







"I don’t wanna see any more artists’ jewelry on social media. No more videos of their cars cribs or money," Stockman tweeted on Monday, June 27. "From now on, I wanna see videos of artists in rehearsal! Your jewelry don’t mean sh*t if u can’t perform! Man this music business is weird ... I’m watching artists squander their blessings by not doing what it takes to have a longstanding career in this music business! It’s heartbreaking! It’s all about optics, no soul, no conviction. No intention to last any longer than just a few streams."

He continued. "I don’t care about your clothes, how fly u look, how much u spent on your damn ring! If u don’t put the work in where it counts, Diamond ring and all, u still suck! Shout out to the artists I know and respect who do the work to be great! I love y’all, even if the world doesn’t ...  Effort is what I wanna see ... Rehearsal is the new flex!"

Do you agree with Stockman?
