I'm assuming Lil never heard that when you point a finger, four more point back at you. But then, hearing his flow, I doubt he has the acuity for such advanced mathematics.

"I came out when everybody was super different. You had an ODB. You had a Busta Rhymes and then you had a 2Pac. You had a Biggie. And everybody was different."

This is like Taylor Swift lamenting the fall of country.

He has a valid point.  Today's hip-hop does suck.  Oh.  Right.  It always sucked.
 
2014-08-01 02:49:16 PM  
Oh,oh-oh! You see, the kids these days, they listen to the rap music, which gives them the brain damage. With the hippin' and the hoppin' and the bippin' and the boppin', they don't know what the jazz is all about. Y'see, jazz is like Jello pudding... no, that's not it. Jazz is like Kodak film... no, that's not right neither. I've got it, jazz is like the new Coke - it'll be around forever.

I don't see the Patty Duke/Slim Shady reference. Maybe I'm drunk, maybe I haven't had enough ham samwichs.

/hip-hop sucks, but I don't do the emancipation proclamation. Hehehehehe.

This; he's part of the problem.

Rap has the same problem most other genres had, it's lost what made it so interesting at its inception and has been mainstreamed to death.   Once people got rich off it they stopped making music about stuff that mattered and just made music that makes them the most money.  Just look at country these days.  Same thing.

Too many rappers saying the same goddamn shiat is the problem.


FTFY.

Fano: So Slim Shady won?


He had his own style and flow which was more in line with his predecessors, so I'm not sure about this one.
 
2014-08-01 03:00:54 PM  
Rap died in 1994 or so.

Can't we all just hump along?

There's still plenty of great rap out there.

You just have to head down the path less traveled.

Killer Mike and El-P's "Run the Jewels" is seriously some of the best rap ever.

There's good mainstream producers too like Clams Casino and Blue Sky Black Death.  They just work with a lot of crappy artists.
 
2014-08-01 03:09:22 PM  
I would expect that sort of complaining only from old white guy.
 
2014-08-01 03:09:45 PM  
The problem is auto-tune.  Rappers didn't use it in the 80's and 90's.  Now they all use it.  Plus it's not hip-hop, it's pop-hop.  Lil' Wayne was much better when Juvenille was around.  Think Hot Boyz.  There was distinction between rappers and hip-hop artists back then.  Now it's all the same sounding crap with awful beats (if you can even call them that).
 
2014-08-01 03:12:29 PM  
The problem with today's hip hop/rap is that it is no longer fun. It's just a parade losers talking about their biatches and hos and how much money they can flash. They romanticize a gangster lifestyle while trying to inflate their poor self esteem and make themselves feel like someone that matters. Sick overcompensation for coming from a background of extreme hardship. It's embarrassing to watch. I'm sure there are exceptions to this, but I have no interest in any of it anymore.

What lost me was when all the rappers got rich and it all turned into bragging about how they are living large. Who wants to listen to that shiat? I don't care how much money you have, or how many biatches and hoes you farked. Give me old school Public Enemy any day.

I hate it when hipsters whine about people selling out, but rap as a genre that I feel really sold its soul to the God if Mammon.

Or Jaden Smith talking about the lack of talent in today's current generation of actors (your handle reminded me of this, not directed at you personally)

It's like people only do these things because they can get paid. And that's just really sad.

Popular music is always going to be derivative safe ctrl+v crap, Rap/Hip Hop long ago crossed into the mainstream and became a marketable commodity to little Susan and Billy in middle America.

The hip-hop that doesn't make the radio El-P and Killer Mike as mentioned above, Open Mike Eagle, Deltron 3030, anything from the Doomtree collective for example are worth giving a listen

Judging rap/hip-hop from what you hear on the radio would be like judging rock music only from Nickleback or Jazz by Spyro Gyra
