A little different from what we usually post but there are soooooo many things to give our thoughts on and so little time. not gonna lie, this was inspired by @tahaxsayed
this topic was re-ignited by @iamwill
statements (which you can read on the second slide) that hip hop is the “lowest hanging fruit” and is in the worst state that it’s been in now that everyone can do it.
we here at the #ourthoughtspodcast
think this is such an ignorant statement and any og who thinks this is simply painting a broad s****e from the kodak blacks and the 21 savages of the world (both of whom are really good rappers btw).
hip hop has never been better! nowadays, you are able to listen to so many different kinds of hip hop.
want trap songs to get hype? there’s travis scott, drake, and migos.
want some lyrical rap about the struggles? you can listen to kendrick lamar, meek mill, or joey bada$$.
plus, there are so many up & coming rappers like @bobbyjfromrockaway
that each bring something great to the table.
even recent films like creed 2, black panther and mid90s use hip hop in a way that provides a breath of fresh air to the movie scene. •
hip hop, rap, whatever you wanna call it is the new “pop”, whether you like it or not. with that comes a wave of people inspired to do what they love. it’s our responsibility as the consumers to be open-minded.
in conclusion, hip hop isn’t going anywhere anytime soon and is constantly evolving literally every week. honestly, if you’re one of those people hating on this generation of hip hop, you’re simply not looking hard enough.
