its gotten so bad, that me, an avid hardcore fan of hiphop since the age of 10, who love(d) it to death, just does not care anymore.
i listen to the few underground rappers that are actually rapping about stuff, but other than that, if i listen to hiphop its gonna be the stuff i listened to as i grew up. (im 21 btw)
rap today is just retarted. An era where lil wayne is considered the greatest rapper ever is just a joke. people have caught on to the scam being done by these record labels, and now, unless all these record labels and MTV and BET start playing some REAL hiphop, its gonna die
I wonder what the next big thing is gonna be. maybe.... techno?
fu*k it, I've been listening to a lot of rock music recently, and its starting to grow on me to the point of not listening to rap anymore. period
I feel you. Just a few years back, i would never have thought i'd be listening to people like Gym Class Heroes or Fall Out Boy, but rap is really hurting right now. It will never go away, and i feel there are still many great artists out there doing their thing, but i will never be as big of a hip hop head as i once was.
