What happened to hip hop/rap?

Recommended Posts

Whats happened to hip hop? everything i hear now is auto tune "RnB" in the words of Wu Tang Rap n Bullshit...

 

Aussie hip hop seems to be where its at now for decent music... but what around thats recent aside from the Aus hip hop thread?

 

What are all the Hip Hop heads listening to now?

big fan of the old school.. think MF Doom, original Nas, Wu Tang, Jurassic 5, Tribe Called Quest etc etc

 

whats around or has it all turned to crap

yeah im the same.. refuse to listen to anything that has auto tune or the like... old school Eminem was sick.. he went soft... Dre went soft.... Snoops new stuff i dont even know what to call it lol.

 

the newish Raekwon album isnt too bad but have only listened to bits. would love a new half decent artist to listen too

what it comes down to, is most artists these day haven't got alot of talent.. (im not sure about aussie hip-hop though, never really got into it)

 

its 10 times easier to make a beat and add all that electronic shit, thats why most of them do it these days

 

im a big fan of the old school stuff as well. new stuff, been listening to wiz khalifa lately. ahuh you know what it is :yes:

No Offense, i used to be a HUUGGGEE Hip Hopper.

 

Rap ain't the same as it used to be.

 

Everything, you name it, its been rapped about - all the new shit is gay.

 

As Nas says, Hip Hop is Dead.

to a point I agree ACE

but have a listen to a lot of the real hip hop, J 5 etc... a lot of its more story telling than rapping about what they have how good they are etc...

 

real rap and real hip hop is story telling, no 2 days in life are the same for no 2 people so stories should be running plenty. Especially with a lot of the Aus stuff.... TZU killed it before they broke up... just rapping about day to day life and struggles etc

Sooooo over the I'm a gangsta type crap that has been so played out.

Very true - J5 i.e Remember his Name (listened to today :P)

 

If a story is told in a rap song its xmas, not just:

 

Im better than you - my flows spit hoes, spit venom on you

Im intellectual, only stuff like this is seen in history books

like i said will always be a fan of old school stuff but you cant compare it to hip hop these days (if you can even call it that today)

 

also when you say old school what years are we talking? cos im sure some of the guys in here are prob older than me. someone make up a time line lol

 

agree with deanis about missus in the car lol same shit happens to me..

 

ACE-180E you are correct but all the new shit isn't gay. (each to their own i guess)

 

listening to rick ross now beacuse he blows money fast :quagmire:
