The West is coming back strong with TDE, Nipsey and that DJ Mustard sound. I don't know where NY Hip Hop is going.
All trash. This south run in hip hop really doesn't have anything to do with NYC. Pretending the West is coming back don't matter either.
See we west coast folk don't trip off whether we back or not we do us regardless
I can respect that but honestly if ppl are talking about a run and dominating then who is "coming back" or is "relevant" would matter. Yall had that official great run with dope music and platinum albums in the 90s but then other than Snoop went ghost for a while, then Game had everybody thinking there'd be a resurrection but he turned out to be bi-polar, and now I see a lot of hope mainly put in Kendrick who is dope but I don't see much talk about anybody else. I remember ppl use to talk about Nipsey Hussle and whoever else but they're mainly ghost now.
I'll add NYC doesn't have anybody right now doing it in both avenues but then again not many rappers that aren't already established are from any region anyway.
If we were just talking about good music from other regions that'd be a whole other discussion cuz I love me some Pac Div, Dom, etc. as far as new artists go.
