Has Hip Hop about ran its course ?
The world of hip hop has morphed into something I don’t even recognize anymore. As I go listen to my daily blend of so called hip hop tracks that are submitted to me 7 days a week I have noticed that the tracks get worse and worse day after day. The few hip hop artists that used to put it down are so lazy they dont release anything but half ass collab tracks non stop anymore. The sellouts are everywhere from the youngmoney gay hip hop artists that get most of the commercial press, to the big name lame blogs that suck off the major labels and never promote any indie artists. Hip hop has started accepting manipulated record sells that claim they sold 1 million records in a week by buying them all back , to the wack concerts that barely fill up half the venue. It is a very disgusting time in hip hop these days.
I sometimes find myself listening to old school r&b and funk bands where artists used to sing and have real bands. Today we have wack rappers wearing spandex pants looking like faggots check the pic above, and we call them the best we have to offer in hip hop. I don’t see any big name blogs or websites calling these lames out ever because they are scared that they will get their get in the concert free pass pulled or get smacked up by the bodyguards of one of these lollipop rappers.
I don’t see or hear much from the indies anymore as well. It seems like even the indie artists are too lazy to hustle and promote their names to the level they need to. Hip hop is also full of so many hustles now that it has turned into a wwe sideshow, there are the never ending wack showcases that are meaningless, to the wack awards shows that are meaningless, to the major labels that have ruined hip hop by making it a priority to promote the trash artists and the trash music. I feel like the best days of hip hop are definitely behind us and hip hop might just die if it continues to go down the lame street we are headed.
