Some old heads point at 1988 as the year hip hop strayed from its original intention.

Which is funny because it’s a year that’s always referenced.

Canibus mentioned it on Poet Laureate 2. Jay mentions it on Dead Presidents 2. An underground head named Blueprint even released a whole album and song centered around 1988.

Murs did one of those hip hop dx deep dives exploring the dichotomy of “real hip hop” vs “commercial hip hop” which is great insight into this particular topic.

Hip hop culture/Rap music, like people, is multifaceted and not one dimensional. Bump what you fu*k with and learn to accept the diversity of the culture if you choose to explore outside your preferred sound and lyricism. It’ll also help keep you in tune with the youth, which is old heads sometimes need, if we don’t want to be left behind.

Rap sold out after 2006... All for ringtone monies


At least before then, cats had respect for the craft.

With that said, I was playing this song this morning.


Sadly, Amazon sent me a copy of At The Speed Of Life that didn't even have the correct disc. Thankfully, I will get replacement copy free of charge.

They're throwing subliminal shots at NWA.

And they were off by like 9 years. The Sugar Hill gang came out the gates in "Studio Mode".... It was some sh*t from the gates. Hell Cameo dropped "Word Up" in 86' was he not "rapping" technically? Can't say that song lived in the same lane as "Road to Riches" by G Rap. Same game, new faces, different sounds...

I think when they say 88 is the year hip hop died or what ever they say, they're referencing "gangsta rap" being commercialized.

not really commercialized
crack became a nationwide problem that year.

The 1st time many people ever heard about it was just a few years earlier.

The summer of 86 was when it took LA by storm.
I remember vividly because that was the last summer I could ride my bike when it got dark.

That was when you had people like Toddy Tee (with the Batteram) and Mix Master Spade (City of Dope) exposing what was happening in the trenches.

A side note it was Spade was who showed Freeway Rick Ross how to move and who Eazy E stole his dope boy persona from.
It was Spades rock houses they were hitting with the batteram

It sold out before that when it went to the shiny suit rapping No Limit album cover style era around 98. That's when it started becoming about visual and gimmicks over lyrics.

True. But they did cause riots and alot of upheaval, kind of broke the mold imo. But at that time i understand the backlash. Crazy how times have changed, now we root for Gris to break through into the commercial industry.

I always put some of the blame on Master P. He was the first example of a bad rapper with a very good hustle to get money.

I don’t think hip hop died. It just evolved past what we know it as. Basically, we are old dudes yelling at the clouds. What things start as isn’t what they need to stay as. Things evolve and morph into new things.

For me it’s not that. I feel like those elements of hip hop always existed … but at a certain point , they began to dominate the genre… nobody would care about any of that if lyrical rap was still doing platinum plus and at the forefront of mainstream .. it’s a space for all of it and it’s always been there in some form
