What happened to hip hop/rap?

Recommended Posts

hip hop is about the music, not how many times you've been locked up.

 

I don't listen to artists because they rap about being badasses, I listen to them if they're good

exactly.... Jurassic 5 have flow.... they tell stories, laugh talk about life etc. Real rap is story telling, so easily forgotten now everything is manufactured for the masses and made for what people "want" to hear for radio

 

Im sorry but rapping about how hard you are etc is pathetic... shows a lack of creativity IMO and just shows an ego.

You guys probably already came to this conclusion several pages ago, but i've had a lot of coffee and cbf reading the whole thread haha. There's nothing wrong with hip hop right now. In fact some of the shit out right now is some of the best shit i've ever heard.

I lost interest in hip hop a while ago. It just ain't the same as it used to be. All the new stuff is just too cheesy and manipulated for me.
