Hip Hop is already dead.
Make place for the new Hip Pop.

This is shit, the real rap can't gat regocnition no mo.  Everybody wanna hear easy lyrics on easy beats.  If you gotta think when your listening to music then it's not good, you gotta make people dance and learn the lyrics in 10 min to make a hit nowadays.  I think the real artists who put work in their lyrics and in their production are very agry right now. 

All of this started we Master P and the Cash Money (who were not that bad), and then you got Lil Jon and G-Unit (who are not great for hip hop).  They made hip hop look so simple to do, taht now everybody think he can rap or produce.

In 20 years, the real rappers will be young poets and the Hip Popers will be musicians.

I agree with what Shallow said about it being in actuality just another form of Rock & Roll.  Rock & Roll dies whenever it stops being youthful, energetic, rebellious, exciting, etc. and Hip Hop has stopped being all of that.  I don't like new rock, and I don't like new Hip Hop.  Of course there's exceptions, but the talent and creativity that launched Rock & Roll (Little Richard, Chuck Berry, Elvis Pressley, Jerry Lee Lewis, Bill Haley, etc.) is the same creativity that launched Hip Hop.  Just like 10 years after it's inception, Rock was still doing creative and original things (Elvis, The Beatles, The Doors, Led Zeppelin, Brian Wilson, etc.), 10 years after Hip Hop's inception, it was still doing creative things, too (Dr. Dre, Snoop, Deathrow, even Puffy's shit was better than what's out now).  I think ultimately hip hop will die a painful death, not only because the creativity is gone, but because more than any other musical genre, it's been exceedingly negative, and many times doesn't focus on the positive side of life, which is what people deep down relate to.  Even people in the hood dream about leaving the hood, they don't dream about dying in the streets. 

As for the hiphop fashion, yeah, I think they look like fucking clowns.  I laugh my ass off when I see some guy walk by with his pants around his knees and his boxers showing, or some big ass t-shirt that's twice too long on.  Looks rediculous, and yeah it gives hiphop a bad name.

You know how we look back at the 70s and laugh at the hair, the polysester suits, the bell bottoms etc.? That exactly how are kids are going to laugh when they look back at the late 90s and now and see pictures and videos of all these dumb kids dressed exactly as you described.

I think it'll be worse.  If I saw somebody dressed up as a flat out hippy I wouldn't laugh as hard as I do when I see these assclowns.

Maybe, but Hippies aren't that bad, think about a 70s polyester body suit with the chest open and a mullet or white-fro. That's pretty bad.

Don't get me wrong, I'd still dress like that over baggy pants under my ass and a sideways hat.
