Who is your fav?

So many to choose from.

====================
Hey look who hit enter
====================


I am one of those people who youtubes so hard that he ends up in parts of youtube unkown, thus my reccomended video feed is all over the place.

However that being said I tend to listen to some rap, and lately I've been listening to all the uhh idk what you call them.

Nu Generation Rappers?


Tay-K = Got a song called The Race, its about him shooting someone in the face and not being able to beat that case so he had to do the race.

YBN Nahmir: Pretty much got his gangsta from playing GTA.

Ski Mask The Slump God: I like his stuff but didn't like seeing him get knocked out at his concert.

Skittles err I mean Tekashi 6ix9ine; Probably the most famous out of the new wave, basically its screamo rap, with skittles.

THEN lets just lump all the Lil whatevers into one group, you some hundred plus whack rappers with the name lil' (insert drug or weapon here)

Also I've noticed rapper look more punkish than ever, are we at that point where rock music was in the 80s?

Rap pretty #ing cheesey these days.

Honorable mention:

Post Malone;

I feel bad for the groupies hahahahaha.

It has gotten pretty bad. I'm a 80s/90s guy, so I grew up during the golden age of when lyrics mattered.

A friend and I were discussing the state of hip hop the other day. We came to the conclusion that the internet and technology has basically made it too easy for anyone to just call themselves a rapper. I mean you can shoot a video, mix a song, and have it on youtube, soundcloud, etc for nothing nowadays. No longer to A&Rs act as a filter to keep the trash out of the industry.

The other thing I find comical is that I literally know some of these rappers more for their social media antics / beefs than their actual music.

Rap has become a hustle. It really isn't about the art anymore. It is a meal ticket out the hood. Millenials are so distracted, all you really need is a good producer and a catchy hook and you'll be on your way to 100 million views.

I guess thats why I'm always taken back a bit when I hear these.

It's like now, lyrics are as garbage as possible, just get a dope beat.

Like that Playboi Carti song Magnolia....

What # lyrics but damn I love that beat;

Someone put Nahmir on that beat, I like it.

Not going to front, some of the production work/beats is straight fire. I can only imagine how much better the songs would be with some actual talent rapping over it though.

What really brings it home for me is when I see older cats destroy the mic... makes me remember how rap used to be. I love youtube for it.

Black Thought... yeah, everyone thought he was just a Jimmy Kimmel band guy until he broke the internet with a one take 10 minute freestyle. These youngsters need to step their game up...

THIS. IS. HIP. HOP.

My favorite line... "I told you to keep out the hood... circumcised." WTF?

The beat is crazy...

But repeating Gucci Gang over and over? That beat didn't deserve this...

I was riding with a younger guy who is into modern rap and was forced to listen to it.
I counted 56 "moth#in' niggas" in one extreme example.
He was confused when I started laughing and using my fingers to take tally of the absurdity.
He thought I was making fun of his taste in "music."
I was honestly amazed and amused that this kind of crap actually sells.

I feel the same way.

There are times when a curse here or there can emphasize your point. But if your lyrics are drowning in a sea of vulgarity then I c just consider that a crutch you use to hide your lack of vocabulary..

It's one of the reasons I enjoy the rap battle thread on my Sig. We can't curse and it forces me to work harder to find clever metaphors...
