What would you like to hear in Rap Music today?


Recommended Posts

I think Rap needs to go underground, experiment muscially speaking--mix it up a bit. I like what Aesop Rock is doing - he mixes it up. And The Roots have remained authentic. Here's a new group that is kind of interesting

I think there was a real political and social movement to Rap when it started, and now it seems to have its way.. Now it all seems to be about hot car, hot babes, champagne and slick commercialism. Rappers need to get back to their roots and become authentic again.

Like poor and rich?

yeah...the erosion of the middle class. I think that's a hot issue... People feel it in their pockets--they can relate.

Put your ear to the ground and listen to what is affecting your intended audience on a day to day basis--real life stuff.

Indeed, Hip Hop is boundless, BOUNDLESS.

I felt a tad angry when Jay-Z retired and said "Hip Hop is a young man's game."

Um... no.

If Ozzy can rock in his 60's, there is no reason that Hip Hop can't age that well, too. It's just that music itself, the messages and meaning, have to come along and mature with it's audience.

I used to love a lot of the same artists I hate now, but it's largely because I'm not 17 anymore. I'm not a single kid. It no longer resonates w/ me.

I'd have to say, West Coast, that you have found an older "ear" here.

    • Wait, Burning Man is going online-only? What does that even look like?
      You could have been forgiven for missing the announcement that actual physical Burning Man has been canceled for this year, if not next. Firstly, the nonprofit Burning Man organization, known affectionately to insiders as the Borg, posted it after 5 p.m. PT Friday. That, even in the COVID-19 era, is the traditional time to push out news when you don't want much media attention. 
      But secondly, you may have missed its cancellation because the Borg is being careful not to use the C-word. The announcement was neutrally titled "The Burning Man Multiverse in 2020." Even as it offers refunds to early ticket buyers, considers layoffs and other belt-tightening measures, and can't even commit to a physical event in 2021, the Borg is making lemonade by focusing on an online-only version of Black Rock City this coming August.    Read more...
