  • Anyone else notice mainstream rap keeps getting so much worse....

    That rappers we thought were complete jokes when they came out a few years ago, are actually becoming acceptable amongst those he consider themselves "hip hop heads" (basically the core posters in this forum). A few years ago it was like no, Lil' Wayne sucks. What a joke. Jeezy came out, even worse. I hated him, thought he was a complete joke. Lil' Wayne started to gain his buzz, time went by, artists got whacker. Now we have Gucci Mane, obviously a talentless rapper, and now Wayne is acceptable to listen to amongst even a lot of Hip Hop Heads, as is Jeezy. So my question is quite scary, are we gonna have WORSE rappers 2 years from now and be talking like "oh Gucci Mane and Waka Flocka are okay, at least they pick good beats" etc....I HOPE NOT, IM SCARED GUYS

    when i saw No Limit and Cash Money getting praise in the late 90s, i knew that things were heading in the wrong direction...when the great commercial artists nowadays rap worse than Hammer and Vanilla Ice, things are really looking bad...

    i think picking good beats is part of being a good rapper, but obviously being able to actually rap is more important...of course, the biggest problem with today's commercial artists is that they don't strive to be the best rapper that they could possibly be...lyrical competition has been absolutely replaced by financial competition...that's why Soulja Boy, Plies, Wocka Flocka, Gucci Mane have been able to succeed...

        Hip-Hop has been in a state of 911 since 1999

                I'm still wondering about how no one has mentioned Orange Juice yet, much worse than Gucci IMO.

                      mainstream rap has been terrible with a few notable exceptions the entire time I've been listening (a decade)

                      kinda sucks but what can you do

                        I can barely get into any new artists and especially mainstream ones. I do not see the appeal with them.

                            great thread. shit is embarrassing. it looks like big music labels are not interested in new and talented musicians, its like the world is going crazy or something and kids that dont know about music hear soulja boi and they think its cool because they dont know that other rappers exist and shit like that. but it doesnt happen only in mainstream rap, but in ALL mainstream music too. like some said, i think that mainstream music is reaching the bottom, so it will raise now. at least i hope

                              mainstream music is for kids. there are mny mainstream artists who ain't bullshit but for the most part, when a label hears a kid friendly song, they sign the cunt and force that shit down our throats
