ASSUMING that HIP HOP IS DEAD, but I think many artists are bringing it back. A few that I think can bring back hip hop are Talib Kweli, Del the Funky Homosapien, and Lupe Fiasco (there are others).

Who are artists that you have in mind?

It isnt dead... and last what all u people want is it to get more commercial... that will spoil it big time... only the number of good Hip hop artist have decreased... music evolves.. and so does hip hop... the old crisp stuff u wont hear fast anymore BUT...
Look at dj premier.. hes still hot... or Nujabes... those guys make nice hip hop beats

So as i said before... The Sounds of Hip Hop music has evolved.. into a bit more technical form.. like in all kinds of music happens (for example.. i like scandinavian black metal.... the bands from back in the days.. '88-'95 made some good stuff like the ol hip hop... after a couple years.. the music stayed black metal but the euphoric stuff got changed with more technical stuff) Problary that is because the artist get more skill..
and can use their skills on many other ways........

But comeone Del the Funky homo noo way .. he made 1 reasonable album after that he got wack....

ill say lets have a party the 3rd week of May !!1

I've said this once I'll say it again HIP-HOP IS NOT DEAD. Its only dead in the main stream and has been for years, but independent and underground atrists are still going strong. Back in the early to mid nineties you had way more of a variety, of coarse you had wack mc's back then too but you also had alot of great ones. Now I seriously can't say I like one artist out in the mainstream today. They all look the same, rap the same, and rap about the same things. So to answer your question I don't think mainstream hip-hop will EVER be as good and memorable as it used to be. Most of the mc's out now will be forgotten.

Nothing......i believe it's fine.......I mean hell as you get older Hip-Hop will not reach you like it used to.......I've learned that lately.......that's why today i barely listen to rap because i have changed and the audience for hip hop has changed so instead of wondering when it will come back......wonder where it will be cuz personally I know it will never go back to the same old shit that you are looking for....that's why times change and people change......end forum here!

The only thing killing hip hop now is that it is an enterprise. What I always loved about being a hip hop head, was keeping my ear to the ground, having that new mixtape, or diggin for some vinyl that no one had. Now its like the media is forcing this weak ass music down my ears, and telling me this is hip hop. Now I do believe there is a time and place for every type of music, but the Hip Hop culture is getting too accepted now among the general public. I mean they have legal places to paint graff now, and televised battles. In my day which wasn't even that long ago we threw all the events ourselves, and it was way more rewarding even if we didnt make a penny. I remember being at B-boy summit in venice beach, must have been like 50,000 hip hop heads there, and the police were str8 up in riot mode. They were beating us down, pepper spray, shot guns, helicopters all kinds of precautions. Now its like just go to any concert and the cops are trying to get autographs from the artists....and thats whats wrong, hip hop heads are no longer outcasts.

fuggit..im faded im gonna stop..iono if this even makes sense...lol ill post up some pix of the bboy summit as soon as i can find them.....peacE!

paperchasing is the new artform, not the art of good music


I think any rapper out their with their own Identity & who is not afraid to break tradition is the living embodiment of classic hip hop

im meant the current trends i guess, (maybe tradition was a bad word choice) Lupe Fiasco, Common, Kanye West, Ludacris..... I mostly get tired of hearing gangstas, hustler, pimps, & drugdealers in rap, shit is boring, especially when they skill dont measure up

kanye - college dropout, his 1st album, is perfection
also,
chamillionaire is great, 2 great albums - Sound of Revenge & Ultimate Victory

OutKast, im sure youll like the sounds on Aqemini & Stankonia; Spearboxx/Love Below is one of their bests albums, but you should hear the first 2 & if you like then listen to this one

thats all for now. ~enjoi
