Re: Hip Hop Discussion Thread

It's all subjective and the term varies depending on who you talk to and I think people just use it to justify their distaste in whatever artist or artists they don't like. Rap has changed a lot and will continue to so you can't justify what "real rap" is.

However, I do think the direction the genre has gone the last decade has really fucked up it's credibility because it's gotten to the point where a lot of it is really repetitive, cheap, narcissistic, phony, and soulless. Just look at the content in the music of artists like 2pac, Nas, Ice Cube, Wu-Tang Clan, KRS-One, Public Enemy, and Rakim to guys like Rick Ross, Meek Mill, Lil Wayne, Drake, etc. Rap and Hip-Hop has gone from it's own sub-culture with a message and a purpose to one big glorified pissing contest. That's what I think a lot of "elitists" and hip hop heads get pissed off about and that's probably where the term "real rap" comes from.
