solid points. agree with them all. but it aint just NY, that can be applied to every region of hip hop imo. albeit, the east is prolly the most at fault
this idiot says this comment on his opening statement. way to get readers to take your cliche opinions even remotely seriously.Quote:
Let me be the first to say that I love NY hip hop as much as any region. Even though I grew up listening to nothing but West Coast and Dirty South music.
THE BIGGEST POINT IS THAT THE NY DJs HOPPED ON THE SOUTHS DICK
I especially agree with the 4th point. Too many cats are comin up with far less skill these days, and get pissy when they can't outdo the legends. Maybe if these cats focused more on CONTENT instead of the same ol' redundant "I'm the best" raps, some progress would be made.
Hip Hop used to educate the masses. Now, if your track appeals to the strip club- you've made it....
in my opinion, too much bling-bling, rnb hooks and yeah, beef...
we need more cats like Exquire, Roc Marciano or even ASAP Rocky.
don't worry, eXquire is bringing it bacc
we need more people like smoke dza and action bronson.
Agree with point 3, probably 95% of lyrics I hear in rap (underground or mainstream) are the same tired crap...
I agree with the article and it's good. The writer makes a lot of good points. New York rappers that's new need to read this article because they can learn something. I do notice that some New York rappers have copied southern rappers and westcoast rappers trends and that's something New York rappers never did in the past. I like the picture in the article that shows DJ Premier, Big Daddy Kane, KRS One, Styles P, Rakim together.
