Am I the only one that grew up on rap
« on: June 06, 2009, 10:04:11 AM »
And has zero interest in it anymore ?  The only thing I am checking for now is slaughterhouse and whenever Nas drops and maybe a few other cats like anything Masta Ace is involved with.  But nothing at all peeks my interest in this joke of genre.  I can't stand listening to some supposed dope underground artist rapping over myspace beats.  The mainstream don't even get me started.  95% of legends in the game when they put out new material aren't even trying with the exception of a few.  Than you got some loser telling me I gotta dig to find the dope stuff it's out there.  I work full time and I'm back in school full I don't have time to go on an indian jones like adventure digging for good music.  I couldn't tell you the difference between a lii jeezy and a young weezy.  I can't stay awake for an entire song by mc I'm so underground that the nerds get off to.

I will always listen to my older stuff, except a lof of the westcoast gangsta rap.  That shit is beyond ignorant.  But I hit a certain point where I stopped fucking with new rap all together.  There is ntohing worth listening to now.  I fully expect all the young kids to come and tell me stop complaining b/c change is inevitable.  And I fully expect the nerds to come say I was never a hip hop head to begin with b/c I don't jerk off to MC monotone flow.  Hip Hop sucks and the fans suck too.

The problem is 95% of the good shit won't even be remembered in a few months, it has no staying power.  It's the entire genre from top to bottom, underground to mainstream is garbage with nothing exciting dropping.  So something that is average to above average is now the extremely dope stuff.

that's why i just give a fuck a less how other people remember it.

i know i'm going to bump & remember all the good shit & just forget the wack shit even came out.

rap is so awful when you really look at it though; not the rapping itself, just the way it's now made & viewed.

Well there are albums from Raekwon, Redman, Method Man and Blaq Poet on the way. And GZA, Pete Rock and Q-Tip had albums out last year. Do they not interest you?

I still love rap music. I love it! Nigggurrrrrrr


You gotta have a healthy approach to music and supplement your hip-hop with music from other genres.

And sometimes you even gotta refrain from music altogether and give your mind some space. Nigurrrrrrr

I don't agree with you.  I love hip-hop through thick and thin.  If anything I think your life has changed, your values, and what you like have changed.  Hip-Hop is abundantly alive and well.

yeah man i feel you. there's very few rappers i check for anymore...and all of them are from a particular time period in my life....like those from early to late 90's....very few new ones...

it's cool. people get older and their tastes change.

No b/c it will all be uninspired music.  And even when Method Man was dope he couldn't make a good album.

Nope what I like hasn't changed, I still like good music.  I still listen to Joell Ortiz Bodega Chronicles because it was a dope rapper that sounded hungry and had dope gritty production.

I'm the same way.  I used to love hip-hop for over a decade and now barely care anymore and it's been like that for a about 2-3 years I guess.  Maybe because I'm just getting older, 28 now  :o
I might check this section once every few days and barely even open a thread, just wanna to see if any artists I care about are doing anything.  And I can't even remember the last time I looked in west coast section.

Ay dont blame us, we were out here on the West doin our thug thizzle  ;)

The East turned Hip Hop into pop music, and the South turned it into that booty shake shit. The average rap fan used to be a 16/17 yr old male...now its a 13/14 yr old female. Thank u NY....thank u down South.

ya i never even grew up on it n kinda am getting a little tired. Luckily really only got into the deeper not so mainstream shit a couple years ago so lately ive been still finding all kinds of good shit. Also i found my self downloading alot of RnB shit like John Legend n J Holiday lately to mix my music up a bit.

I have learned over the years to not be a critical as I used to be with music. If a song sounds good in a certain environment than its all good. I don't sit there and criticize a beat and try to identify what snares and kicks he is using. People are way too critical about music. I still love a good album believe me, but I don't all bent out of shape if there is a song with autotune on it.

How you define good has naturally changed.  You hear this artist do it a certain way and then when you hear someone else do something similar you don't think it's fresh. 

I understand what you're saying.  I loved listening to Joell's freestyles before he got more fame because he sounded HUNGRY.  You could hear the viciousness.  But, there's more to rap than being hungry.  People say "oh he doesn't sound hungry anymore" blah blah blah.  Why should they?  Don't be lazy with your technique but you don't have to sound hungry.

There's plenty of dope rappers out there doing good things.

But the West don't get off scott free either. Like some other region is responsible for all these generic rappers spitting about gangbanging and drive-bys who can't write a decent song. How did the East Coast turn Hip Hop into pop music anyway?

B/C it's a message board, thats what you're supposed to do.  If everyone had the same boring opinion this place would suck.
