Re: Hip Hop Discussion Thread
I don't know what it is but I'm not a fan of the new trends in hip-hop. I want to like them, I just don't.
Rap - Started From The Bottom was awful IMO, 5AM In Toronto was amazing though. Big fan of Big Sean and J.Cole but Wiz Khalifa's not amazing, I can't take to Kendrick apart from Swimming Pools and I don't like A$AP Rocky's style either. My type of rap is broad - Kanye, Jay-Z, Pac, Biggie, Eminem, Bow Wow, 50, Game, Fabolous.
RnB - My favourite genre but I can't take to JT apart from Mirrors, Frank Ocean apart from Swim Good and Thinking About You. This new type has a lack of soul and the beats are drowny IMO. Wouldn't class them as RnB myself, more new soul. My type of RnB is Jagged Edge, Tyrese, old Usher, Chris Brown's Rnb etc.
Anyone agree? I really don't know what it is. I mean I like A LOT of Hip-Hop but lately I'm not feeling a lot of it. Same with Rihanna's music, Unapologetic doesn't touch Loud and Good Girl Gone Bad IMO. Don't get me started on the Dance songs either lol.
