nowadays.

It's not going anywhere. It will continue to be ******ed and always rest on the shaky defenses of, "we only rap bout what we see," and,"well it's not supposed to make sense, it's a club song," and, "well we aren't these kids's parents."

Modern day

They just got "real" black dudes as the actors

'06?

Try 99 or before that even...

It's sad how EVERYONE is a "rapper" these days or as I like to call them, "rappist".

Rapping ain't for everyone. I remember when I heard Canibus for the first time and everyone was all hyped at his mixtape and I was like, "where'sthe stories?" Anyone can brag creatively, but if you can't tell compelling stories, you're trash in my opinion.

I kinda knew that day that hip hop was going downhill...

That and lames shouldn't be allowed to grab a mic.

I'd say that theres just more of a rift between mainstream and underground forming. You dont hear conscious rap on radios anymore, unless you count Kanye.
But thought provoking rap will never leave, just be less promoted.

i agree, more like 04. hip hop used to consist of so much effort and deep thought, now its jus a bunch of dumb $%% dancing and bad dressing

There's still good hip-hop out there, you just gotta look a little harder for it. Unfortunately, the 'Hip-Hop' we get fed on the daily (through TV,radio, etc) is garbage and is only representative of a very small part of the genre.

Conscious rap?

That went out with Public Enemy, at least in the mainstream.

Most of these cats claiming to be "conscious" are plain stupid and ain't waking no one up with the nonsense they're talking.

You dont have ANY rappers like Chuck D left around of course, because everyones moved past that. People are more accepting to the idea of equality, and eventhough there have been changes, racism isnt dead. A lot of people think it is, and because of that no ones rapping about that anymore, because no one believesin it anymore.

I equate concious rap to something that has a message deeper than 'dance dance dance... gimme money gimme money... $#!* yall $#!* yall.'

This is true.
Which is why people need to look deeper than the radio. A lot of people still putting out good, or even great, music.

Some rap nowadays is good. Immortal Technique, Army of the Pharaohs is decent. Wale is pretty good. Charles Hamilton has some good tracks.
