"Ghostface killah has a major complaint about today’s rappers, and he really wishes one of them would do something about it.

The Wu-Tang Clan legend sat down with Rolling Stone on Friday (May 17), where he revealed that he didn’t think today’s rappers knew about the art of storytelling.


“I don’t hear n-ggas doing storytelling no more, man,” he said. “There might be Nas. You might still got [Slick] Rick out there doing it … Raekwon, [GZA]. A lot of stuff be regular darts, regular raps. Everything with this new generation is about clubs.”

He continued: “A lot of pu$$y getting thrown around and sh1t. It ain’t like with MC Lyte. Even when Lil’ Kim did it, she was gangsta with it. She was a rapper’s rapper. … But the Lauryn Hills of this sh1t [are] gone. Even the Foxys and sh1t like that, like a lag came over it. But all this other ‘lick my ass,’ ‘my butthole brown’ sh1t, it’s like … it’s too much.”

This isn’t the first time that Ghostface killah has reflected about times gone by.

Last month, Ghost sat down with Big Daddy Kane for a session with HipHopWired‘s “I Got Questions,” wherein he revealed that “All That I Got Is You” — the classic track featuring Mary J. Blige off of 1996’s Ironman — causes him so much sorrow that he doesn’t perform it live.


“It just gets me sad,” he explained. “I don’t really perform that because it brings me back to a place where we was going through it. That record brings pain.”

Ghostface isn’t shy about performing in general, however, as he recently proved when he joined Fat Joe onstage during the Terror Squad rapper’s recent Harlem show.

Last month, the Terror Squad boss hosted the Fat Joe & Friends concert at the historic Apollo Theater in New York City’s Harlem neighborhood.

During the set, he welcomed several rap veterans on stage such as 50 Cent, Ghostface killah, Lil Kim, Ashanti, The LOX, Remy Ma and State Property, among many others.

The concert, which was put together in celebration of the 20 year anniversary of Joey Crack’s 2004 hit “Lean Back,” also featured performances of “Shook Ones, Part II” by Mobb Deep‘s Havoc, “Déjà Vu (Uptown Baby)” by Peter Gunz, “We Fly High (Ballin’)” by Dipset and many more."

He started out with a point but made absolutely no connection. Slick Rick is his example of someone that’s out now doing storytelling.

Then he didn’t give an example of what those artists do that he likes. I saw the jab at Poundtown but… that’s a story.

How about instead of constantly complaining about what we don't like about the "mainstream", let's try to actually focus and shine a light on how creative these "underground" artists have been out here for years now.

This also a big reason why I champion n1ggas like Mach-Hommy, Billy Woods, Navy Blue, Earl Sweatshirt, and Roc Marci etc.. as my GOATS. They don't just make individual straight forward story tracks. Instead their whole style and approach to song writing and crafting album's can legit paint and plays out like full stories/movie scenes to me.

Bruh aint do his research because it's tons of rappers who still incorporate stories in their raps.

I've been listening to so much underground Hip Hop and R&B lately that it's kinda hard to keep up with. This is the first year where I truly don't care about what's going on in the mainstream

that, auto tune and almost everybody sounds like everybody…….

there’s a lot of exceptions in every case but most of the people in a region all have the same flows, production and subject matter……..

there’s nobody taking chances. I’m not sure how to articulate this really but I’ll try. nobody really steps outside their lane anymore. the best(and really only) examples I have off top is like when Biggie used Bones flow on “Notorious Thugs” or when Meth glide on a West Coast rappers feature spot…….

Idfk…….

yeah, I’ve been listening to a ton of R&B lately(reg speed and Slowed and Chopped). pretty much an even split between 90’s-mid 2000’s era and 60’s-80’s era……..

this time of year I’m always pretty Dancehall/Reggae heavy too……..

CLEARLY storytelling has fallen tf off. If the south is "running the game" but doesn't tell stories then that's what happens.

The worst thing to happen to mainstream hip hop was the South taking over.

99% of them pick making money over making timeless art.

I honestly been listening to more alternative music over hip hop lately, just puts me more in a lighter peaceful and creative space.

There’s a lot of repetitive underground hip hop that has been dropping lately with no replay value and it’s just rappity rap
