the problem with hip hop......if i hear that one more time i have to vomit for real!!!!!!!!
what about techno music and rock? they are popular, too, and techno at least had itīs popularity/mainstream peak right before hiphop and then came the overkill. still they are not dead i would say. iīm no expert in that music but i guess i can say that they have a kind of culture that lives on. same with rock. i mean there is so much bullshit coming out but the "real rockers" donīt care. and i believe that hiphop will survive, too. right now, (in germany) you hear everywhere black music - rap and bullshit, rīnīb - but only a few small jams, concerts or even hiphop-party (i never was at a location with a hiphop-party, nor did i see a flyer or sumthin except my own houseparty).
take a deep breath and exhale. repeat this a few times. take a marker and tag. get your adidas and do sixsteps. take a mic and rhyme. spin the wheels of steel.
