  • What happened to storytelling in rap music?

    I mean, where the hell have all the storytellers gone? Cube, Slick Rick, etc were awesome back in the day (not gonna name all the old school classic storytellers) ... but todays rap music has no storytellers at all ... all just rap the same style about the same things ... im REALLY strugglin to think of any really good storytelling rappers who are active in rap today

          i was thinkin the same thing, there are still story telling rappers in the game but i havnt heard a good story song from Nas for a long time but i hope drops 1 or 2 on his new album cuz tracks like "Shootouts", "Blaze A 50" & "Undying Love" where IMO classics

                    that is why I like Joe Budden he is a great storyteller 10 mins, walk with me, focus, calm down, are all storyteller tracks. Plus if you look in the underground artists like J-Live and Masta Ace are trememdous story tellers one for the griot and broklyn masala are classic trakcs.

                              Masta Ace!!!! is really really good. But yeah like I read someone post above, a lot of the storytelling is sort of seen as less commercial and so it's found underground. Nas was really good with Rewind, I hope his album has songs that tell stories as well as in the track.
