A lot of the hiphop audience is focused on flashy-ness and materialism if you ask me...but there are also a lot of people who judge the music based on content. Since there are artists that fit both demandst there's no need to really worry about where hip-hop is headed.

I still crank dat soulja boy once in a while...and all dat bullshit LOL.

I'd say most of the good artists (good artists to me, not necessarily everyone else) now are underground. Although some of the artists are rising from the underground (not much though), like Mos Def & Talib (but not together as Blackstar =P) and Lupe Fiasco.

Jak, that's not an evolution you just described, that's a fucking "de-evolution" right there. Even party hip hop music back in the day didn't sound like the retarded non-sense we're hearing right now

I have to agree with you there! I've heard some of his new album and I believe Nas is conforming.........lyrically and musically well musically it a hell of alot better cuz Nas had some shitty beats back in the day!
