why do people always talk about hiphop like its dead or it needs someone to save it. There are tons of good artists that are rapping over new shit and not the same 40 year old dusty ass beats. Nothing against old school, I definitely enjoy oldschool rap a lot but people need to embrace change and be open to all the fresh new artists on the scene not just those who make the same rap dudes were making in the 80 and 90s

I'm not saying there are not good rappers out there doing new shit but go watch xxl freshmen 2016 cypher and tell me that other than Denzel curry and little dicky that they were deserving?

f*ck xxl freshman tho lol i like some of those rappers but not based on lyricism more on their beats and style (yachty and uzi). Their are plenty of other rappers out there that throw down and are making moves.

Yeah man agreed but it's just disappointing that they ain't gettin the attention they deserve

I think the real thing right now, and this applies to all genre's of music, is that it's so much easier for music to get popular and there's so much more music out there because of technology advances. There's always been shitty music out, there's just a whole lot more now because any idiot can post their shit to soundcloud or youtube. The radios don't determine what's popular anymore, meaning it's the average people who judge that. Do you guys think an Ugly God would have been popular in the 90's? Hell no. No radio DJ would have been playing something with that little musical merit.

I think his music has a place, but not any merit. Just my opinion. I mean, a lot like Yachty etc, that type of music just doesn't have the same artistic thought behind it as someone like Kendrick, J-Cole and many past greats.

What I love though is that rap isn't as pretentious as some other genres, so it isn't all about being artistic. Some of these guys just want to have some fun, and rap provides a conduit. Maybe they aren't that talented, but the music can be enjoyable nonetheless.

I completely agree. I still do think that there's a certain importance to representing the culture and what it was founded on correctly.
