    I am the Bullgod is probably the most socially acceptable song from that album. You could play it in a dive bar in this era and ppl would probably like it.

    They have completely run out of ideas.

    Lil wayne made an attempt, but he gave up and just opted for falling on a skateboard and drinking lean.

    I don't think rap as a genre has ran out of ideas, at least not relative to other genres. The benefit of electronic based music is that the technology changes, its difficult to do new shit with a guitar at this point. Of course there's a lot of derivative shit out there, I don't need a 2019 version of Gangsta Boo or another faceless mumble rapper but thats life.

    Rock music is dire these days - its either this awful nostalgic take on 70s rock or super try hard EDM with chanted rock hooks.

    For real. Rest In Peace to Joe C. It was great Kid Rock put him on.. He probably would have made a good album had he lived.

    There's bunch of rappers like that who kind of have a Punk, Metal aesthetic but for the most part the music is still recognisably Hip Hop and there's no live guitars involved.

    it was a gimmick with soundcloud rappers. usually if you tell them 'you cant rap', they say 'I'm not a rapper I'm a rockstar'. Which means they wear black and have colorful hair. None of them try making any form of rock because the laziness that brought them to the gimmick wont allow them to learn an instrument.

    Kid rock was pretty shit. I liked him when I was like 11 but hes one of those things you look back on and cringe about.
