I guarantee you...if all so-called hip hop heads and gangster rap heads went out to the store and bought music from the artists that they support...then the industry would push that good music. They push what sales, and good hip hop doesnt sale in the store because people download and burn the albums. But people do get up and buy this bubble gum sh*t that u hear on the radio.
I miss the early 90's, if I still heard music like that coming out...I'll definitely buy it and urge others to buy it too. I want the whole industry to go back to where it was at that time. Back then, u heard that gangsta sh*t in the mainstream.
Not even Gangsta music in general, The early 90's-97 was the best period in music bottomline.

Hell yeah, I agree. I said gangsta music because Im a big fan of that westcoast music from that time. Every coast was putting out good music then, but we stopped buying it though. Labels stopped getting paid off of sales. The artists get paid off of shows, so theyre straight. But what about the label making their money? I still say that if we buy the music that we claim we're dying to hear...then the game will have a flashback.

Nah it started way before that travisty of a song... around the middle of 98 music just went down hill, Starting with Master P, but Fat Joe was the second Nail in the coffin, G-Unit 3rd, Lil Flame 4th, Snap Music/Crunk 5th.

We got one more nail ready to hammer, Mims was almost the Six... but I think that nail is reserved for Soulja Boy.

I agree but only to a certain extent. You still had quality hip-hop records coming out. I remember one of the first albums I ever d/led was "Reflection Eternal". The dimise of rap began when "crunk" emerged.
THERE YOU GO RIGHT THERE......

i dont think hiphop is dead at all...maybe ppl just listen the wrong music,mainstream is EXTREMELY sh*tty,and for it you could say is dead,meaning the quality went completely :thumbsdow ,but you got plenty of albums where rappers spit dope lyrics and the beats are on point and they keepin the sh*t more than alive...

truth is ppl dont support so much anymore,but i think also that rap stars started actin like some fu*kin spoiled brats,cryin for not bein able to buy 7 houses,10 suvs,nba team and start a clothing line company off of their first single....its not so bad to sell 300,000 records like they tryin to make it look like....its just they all wanna sell 10million records per album and buy a new chain every time they need to take a photo....

i keep supportin the artists who i feel that deserve the support,and if majority does the same its gon be all good....
Agreed

Hip Hop's not dead. It lives and breathes in the heart of the fans. This is a hip-hop section being updated everyday right? Maybe the industry is backwards but the music is wherever you want it to be.

Holloywood Divorce tells you why it "died"

(Andre 3000)
Hollywood divorce
all the fresh styles always start off as a good little hood thing
look at blues, rock, jazz, rap
Not even talkin about music
everything else too
by the time it reach Hollywood it's over
but it's cool
we just keep it goin and make new sh*t

(Snoop Dogg)
Take our game, take our name
give us a little fame -
and then they kick us to the curb that's a cold thang
Money and Popularity

Once businesses get wind of whats the new thing is they throw money at it or if that doesn't work they just copy it and then the downward spiral begins

I'd say if you could blame it on just a certain number of things I'd say these:

1.Money-self explanatory

2.Radio-Unless you pay 4 play or you're established you wont be played. So theres no avenue for artist who aren't already caked out or signed to get on(Myspace/social networks are the 21st century versions of the radio)

3.Corporation owned labels-They're already losing money so they are playing it safe and only pushing artist they know have selling potential. In the 90s more labels were independent and more interested in good music so taking chances on different types of artist was the norm so there was a broad spectrum of artist getting shine. Now its limited to gangsta rappers, drug dealer rappers, club rappers, or a combination of those artist.

4. The Rapper-The reason I blame the artist is because instead of doing the music they wanted to do they conform and become who the label wants them to be. Some artist probably felt the way they originally rapped wouldn't get them into the mainstream so they got a persona they knew would work which most of the time turns out to be one of the rapper categories I named in #3.

Thats why everybody was hardbody after 2003(50 cent selling millions), Everybody was a drug dealer in 2005(T.I. starting to get more shine, Jeezy, Cassidy,etc.) and in 2008, everybody is on that autotune sh*t or rapping like Weezy(Lil Wayne and T Pain blew up in 2007).

So the artist also dictated how the game was shifting from its state in the 90s to the 00s.

you can't say one factor b/c so many play a part in the "downfall"
