true I guess It was just one of the first artists that came to my mind.
Depends what you would consider to be "hip pop." Stuff thats on the radio is "hip pop," because its for that specific audience. But there is tons of today's rap that I really do like. Odd Future, Mac Miller (pretty much only Macadellic though), Juciy J, Tech N9ne, Ludacris, Sam Lachow, Wiz Kalifah (to a lesser extent), The Cool Kids, Smoke DZA, and White Ladder Goof Troop are all good examples of artists who still make very quality music today.
I generally like today's rap, but for me to actually like a particular song, it has to be about something more than just drugs, sex, money, power, & fame. You know what I'm saying?
It doesn't matter the time. More about the content.
I'm a big fan of old school rappers like big l, biggie, and Pac but I agree with what's been said about today's beats being more interesting. There are good rappers still but its my personal opinion that most of them aren't actually that talented. *Most* rappers today are unable to freestyle,
which was what got you noticed back in the day. Its more about image and marketing today, i think. Rappers like J Cole, Drake and even kanye and jay z sound lazy when they rap. They know they've made it, and people will treat their sh*t like gold no matter what. Big L is an example of proper rap talent, his freestyles are still mad today and he died in 94. That being said, I would love to hear a bit of a colab album with kanyes beats and some old big and pac verses.
Old school by far. But listen to Nas if you still want that old school feel in 2012. Nas the don lol
Old school destroys everything. I have back spin playing in my car all day People think I'm so cool...
