Because the stuff most rappers talk about is corny when youre over 28.

Nas did a good job of making a grown man hip hop album IMO.

if Scorsese can make movies about drugs and violence at 70 years old, then MCs can rap about it at 40

In hindsight it might look like people in those genres can make music forever but I'm sure more stopped than continued.
Maybe you're not looking in the right direction for rappers with longevity.

only the most successful artists in whatever genre have that kind of longevity

i think they can make records being over 40.

I don't think jigga/nas/wu/busta is quitting any time soon. a lot of underground cats can make a nice living doing what they love bangin out old hits at shows and every now and then dropping a new album.

most of the 88 top 5 are still working: KRS, Rakim, G Rap. Slick Rick had too many issues with the law to keep his career going and kane, well i don't know what kanes deal is.

same shit. MCs take on a persona and paint vivid stories. they don't claim to kill Brenda's baby

I disagree they may not be one artist that stand out but their many timeless tracks that are still banging like melle mells the message, sugar hill's rappers delight these 2 tracks are over 30 years old & still get radio play, they still spin pac 16 years later shit is happening now

Because Rap/Hip hop is flavor of the month, and requires very LITTLE musical talent, if at all, and people only like it for so long. ALL the genre's you posted are actual music based, and not bragging and bullshit

why isnt anyone making disco now? who knows what will happen and may be making music still in there 50s 60s or 70s Hiphop hasnt been around long enough to produce a rolling stones. I got a feeling the roots may go on for along time.

I completely agree, there's alot of jewels and subject variation on there.

This album will change some peoples lives for the better

Its the fans. This is one of the genres where the fanbase is the complete opposite of the rappers background in most cases.

They won't follow their fav rappers from their 'phase' period when growing up through to yound adulthood through to middle age like the artists you mention even if the rapper even improves.

Generally the problem with rap is basically in most cases a black rapper is an outsider to his label (most probably non black owned and run) that will move onto the next fad and ditch the rapper and is an outsider to his middle class white fanbase whom will ditch the rapper as they grow older and become part of mainstream society.

interesting logically, but people generally like the music they liked when they were teenagers for the rest of their life.

People need to stop short changing rap musicians. whatever that dickhead said about rap requiring no talent and is all bragging.

get the fuck outta here. no talent to create 'king of rock'? hard to earn'? no musical talent? it takes as long to become a master at rapping, writing, producing, deejaying as it does to master a traditional musical instrument.
