Modern Rap
What is this supposed to be about? Alien/robot mumble voice with same drum loop and driving base sound, blaring where you can't even hear it. Is this supposed to be music? Hear the kiddos drive up with this stuff blaring it as if they are supposed to think they are cool.

I actually like hip hop, but this new generation of it sucks big time.

There's good stuff out there but it is harder to find. The popular stuff sucks.

re: Modern Rap
Yeah I grew up in the 90s and 00s and hip hop was still pretty good IMO. As someone else said there is still good stuff around it’s just not as “mainstream” I think. One of my favorite songs lately (although it’s like 5 years old) that I think would have still been a hit back in the day is Hopsin ILL Mind Of Hopsin 7. You Tube Link.

Late 80s through mid 90s is pretty much my wheelhouse for rap. Definitely some newer "exceptions" to that rule for me but generally that's the stuff I either like or can at least deal with.

I feel yeah(no homo). I feel like LiL John ruined rap. I did like his stuff he did with usher but I feel like he lead the way in being no talent yet successful in rap. Maybe unpopular opinion but I don’t like one song by lil Wayne. He doesn’t seem like a bad dude though. But I feel like he’s the Garth Brooks of rap music.

re: Modern Rap
Reads like some 1970's rocker talking about the 80's

or 1960's about the 70's

or ... about the next.

re: Modern Rap
It's horrible. My gym has open access to the Spotify and anyone can get on there and change the music. 95% of the time its shitty modern rap music, like you said, which is nothing but the same mumbling ghetto voice and drum loop and base sound. I can't tell the difference between songs.

I do not get the appeal. I'll be the first to admit when I was in high school I thought I was cool and listened to rap music, but you can't deny the stuff I listened to in the early to mid 2000s, while garbage, was not nearly as terrible as the utter audio vomit that rap music is today.

I just put my own earbuds in and listen to my own music. But I always hear the trash rap music on the way in and out.

re: Modern Rap
Here's my take. Rap is completely exhausted as a genre and become the same type of miserable, formulaic trash that pop music became in the late 80s/early 90s

Theyve completely run out of corny fabricated slang to refer to pussy/money/jewelry/killing somebody that the entire industry jumps on overnight and drives completely into the dirt in a month. 2000 shitty rappers referring to diamonds as "water" and really wet pussy as "jet skiing"

There's about 4 or 5 super producers that every new rapper begs for beats. Most of the kids decide whether theyre gonna like a song when they hear the producer drop at the beginning

The last desperate attempt to keep rap relevant has been girl rap like cardi/meg/city girls. Which will make you cringe into a seizure. Literally entire albums about how wet their vagina is. And of course the whole country laps it up, because theyre told to

I actually list to more rap now then when I was younger. All music sucks now. You have to listen to guys that are not super famous. I listen to Demun Jones , Adam Calhoun and lately jelly roll and Tom McDonald.

re: Modern Rap
well said! Kids are fed modern day rap and think they are so cool when they listen to it. Takes no talent these days. Worst music ever.

I've been hooked on Freddie Gibbs' shite lately. Also, he's the best follow on Twitter.

Freddie Gibbs is great, but so are all the Griselda crew who he works with pretty often.

All of that is sort of "throwback" intentional, though, and not really indicative of "modern" rap.

I don't know... I like some of the new stuff. Polo G is pretty awesome. JID is amazing. $not has some good stuff.

Add the Mach Hommy, Your Old Droog, and Tha God Fahim crew to that too.

Also Roc Marciano and Stove God Cooks. Stove God Cooks burst onto the scene in a huge way last year. His album Reasonable Drought is a terrific.
