If you think hip-hop is dead you don't know hip-hop.

Snap is just a sub genre within hip-hop, if sub-genre's emerge within a genre it means it's expanding, meaning it's more alive then ever.
You can also call it evolution and the Chimps didn't ruin the hominid family seeing how the humans are better then any species before it.

let me re-phrase what I meant in the title... this is what killed/made it hard for REAL rappers and artists who are "hip-hop" to be accepted in the mainstream

I do know my hip-hop son, a very wide range and variety, but this right here never was and never will be  8)

That's right it's not hip-hop it's snap music.
Which does however fall under the hip-hop umbrella.

I do admit I thought this was reggae or some shit the first time I heard it.
What do you mean accepted in the mainstream?
D4L had 1 hit, DFB & Unk got some shine but none of them really sold anything impressive for a mainstream act.
An artists doesn't sell a million of 1 hit.

that's my point, after this song came out a stampede of other wack hits and artists soon followed, D4L and this song paved the way for those acts and if they never came out then I bet labels would have never invested in at least 75% of these other garbage rappers

DFB was around in 2004 though with "White Tee" which was a decent single IMO, and they had some pretty good production courtesy of Jermaine Dupri

I guess that started the snap movement yes.

But that stampede would've happened regardless.
Most of those sales came from the snap-music core fan base anyway.

Hip Hop was already wack as shit by the time that song came out.

You gotta blame Puffy, Timbaland, Ja Rule, and a few others for getting the ball rolling, then labels, networks, and magazines.

snap music should be instrumental only.. cause who the fuck listens to the lyrics? just produce some cool beats and stop right there.

...what? you gotta be kidding me. Timbaland went pop with his last album, Shock Value 1 a little bit but that had some major fucking hits on it. Go Timbo!

Its not dead, no one or nothing killed it its called evolution.

Rock started out like one thing and now from rock and roll you have different genres of music like :
Metal, heavy metal, alternative, grundge, death metal, speed metal, punk rock, emo rock and so on...

Same with hip hop

we got westcoast hip hop, eastcoast, down south, crunk, more pop kinda stuff, rnb, snap etc..

Trends is killing hip hop. There was a time that you could make your own kind of music and there was a lane for that. But now everyone is starving and trying to make a quick buck that everyone is doing the same thing. It make the music stagnant and lacks change. 2010 is starting to make a change towards more originality and variety though.

Once it was easy for a good portion of the album-buying audience to have whatever new records they wanted for free, it was pretty much a wrap. In some cases, it's less about supporting music you enjoy and more about keeping money from artists you don't personally like. If record companies could release a diverse selection of hip-hop albums every year and make strong profit with it, they would.

There were SEVERAL things that lead to the decline of hip hop as a lot of people want it to be. "Blaming" one thing in particular for inevitable change is a waste of time.
