What has happened to hip hop? God, it is falling fast... The art form is literally devolving right before our eyes...
We went from Rakim, Krs-One, Public Enemy, BIG, Tupac, Wu-Tang, Roots, Common, MF Doom, Nas, etc taking poetry/lyrics to a level never seen before
artistically to little fruit loop boys with rainbow hair, face tats, wearing purses and bragging about being drug addicts.
Aye there is definitely a dilution of the source !
HipHop started out with conscious thought for positive social change , but has ultimately suffered the fate of so many music genres its been
oversaturated with the advent of digital music and the internet. Where anyone can afford to buy a mic and download cracked production software, and at
the same time the mass appeal factor for music industry giants to sell as many units as possible and exploit the masses with artists producing music
with no real cultural value other than parroting what the media or marketing industry are selling us !
Materialism has worked its way into everything.
However that is only the mainstream and if you look there are still conscious MC's making music of worth.
There will always be cookie cutter clones , and yes this MC is no exception he is a clone there is no doubt about that!
but not a genetic clone unless of course he provides the world with evidence to the contrary and it gets verified!
but do we have to buy all his albums to find that out , im willing to be you do !
just like Tom Delongee his marketing levels have sky rocketed because he is tapping into the conspiracy niche !
same # with eminems mixtape , that came out of nowhere and everyone reacted to , all for the HYPE train so people are talking about him again, all pre
planned beef so its generates hype and sells albums!
people buy that # up , throwing their wallets at their screens!
