Do yourself a favor and read this very thorough article by PRITT KALSI (KOB/DIGGERS/etc) that goes into detail about Hip Hop’s current state of affairs…While your at it- peep his store that is flooded with limited edition desert boots, T-shirts, Varsity jackets, medallions, etc….
“When people say that Hip Hop is dead blaming the artists, who change their sounds or don’t live up to the expectations to their fans delivering pretty standard albums I came to the conclusion that we the fans are hugely part to blame for this and the demise in the creativity of the current state of Hip Hop. There are some great records that we passed on, and lot of that is because how some people are listening to music is changing. Some so called Hip Hop fans play it safe and avoid the street music and prefer to listen to that nice hip hop that just talks about hip hop and how much they love it forgetting the grit and soul it came from, that’s fine if that’s what there into but personally this is where i’m lost, i miss the message that was being delivered by the music that had guts. It presented a picture of the day to day dealings and struggles, the highs and lows of living in the inner city. The music where artists / groups were driven by competition of being not just the best they can be, but better then the next group. Where the above strived to add and contribute to this music. Where producers lived for being creative, Im not saying that today’s music is bad, but the accepted bar or level of whats good isn’t that high. Being different is too often used to disguise the lack of real talent”.
