I don't like it at all O_O Maybe I'm too old ^^^ cause I like 90s music too. Or 90s styled music. But.. No rap. Just pop and rock

I like it, but it very much depends on style and lyrics.

Just like any other type of music, there's good rap and there's bad rap.

Love the old school rap, grew up on Dr. Dre, Snoop, and the rest of the west coast. Maybe I'm just getting old and out of touch, but it feels like it use to be about just having a good time, whether it's with the homies, bitches/hoes, house parties, or smoking the stickiest of the icky. Anyone could relate to having a good time. This was of course before the whole east vs west beef. Nowadays its more about how much money you got and what you can spend it/ waste it on, a lot more difficult to relate to if the economic reports are to be believed. There are a few rappers or individual rap songs I like, but it's golden years have long been gone in my opinion.

Beast Coast!

Though I can see it is not everyone's cup of tea, I feel like hip hop in actually going through another interesting creative phase. Too early to say if it's another golden age. While everyone's perception, whether fan or not, is focused on the Billboard chart rap, underground-wise the scene is the best way to phrase it similar to alternative rock in the 80s and 90s, really diverse musically and lyrically. I admit I used to share the same opinion with everyone else in that hip-hop isn't as good as it was, but once you delve further and seek quality music it's a treasure trove. The Internet is definitely a major factor in this. It has absorb other traits, whether musical or aesthetics, from genres (examples indie, punk, hardcore, metal, psychedelic, electronic dance music, the gay ballroom culture, etc) and reapplied them. Regionalism is no longer central since everyone is sounding like they're from different locations. Artists to look at in this change: Black Hippy crew (Kendrick Lamar, Schoolboy Q, Ab-Soul, Jay Rock), Beast Coast collective (Joey Bada$$ & PRO ERA crew, A$AP Rocky & A$AP Mob, Flatbush Zombies, The Underachievers, World's Fair, Smoke DZA), Odd Future (Tyler the Creator, Earl Sweatshirt, Frank Ocean), Raider Klan (Spaceghost Purrp, Lil Ugly Mane, Metro Zu/Lofty 305), Brainfeeder (Flying Lotus, Samiyam, TOKIMONSTA, Teebs, Gaslamp Killer, Nosaj Thing, Jeremiah Jae), "cloud rap" (Lil B, Main Attraktionz, Clams Casino, Ryan Hemsworth), emergence of LBGT emcees like Le1f, Cakes da Killa, and upcoming artists like Action Bronson, Chace the Rapper, Curren$y, Big KRIT, Blu, XXYYXX, to even the original heads of alternative rap like MF Doom, El-P, Killer Mike. heck even major label rappers have started to let their freak flag fly (Kanye West, Drake, and GASP even Chief Keef?!).

TLDR - Hip-hop IMO is one of the most exciting genres right now.

I love rap. I'm very big on lyrics though. Nowadays I feel like you do not have to have lyrical ability to get signed. Just some sort of gimmick or connections with somebody and some bangin' beats and there ya go. Sums up most of the commercial rappers out there.

while i agree with you that hip hop is experiencing a miniature renaissance of sorts, that graphic is terrible. not only is it practically illegible but 'meme rap'??? at best the categories appear arbitrary, at worst totally incoherent..

and currensy up and coming for real? come on.. maybe in 09 you could say that.

Regarding the image, I tried to find something comprehensive, best I could find was a 4chan /mu/ board image which contained many albums that are reflected of this musical renaissance. I admit I don't like the term "meme rap", but it as I mentioned best I could do. on Curren$y, true he is not that up and coming though he did lay a path for more recent stoner rappers which I why I included him.

I'm gonna be honest, I'm the biggest rock fans and I'll say hip hop and rap really has some catchy beats and stuff. I have a really good friend who listens to Hip hop and rap and I'll sometimes catch myself humming the beats and stuff.
