I agree. But, music is constantly changing, so it is what it is.

Rap is Alive... it's just not like how it used to be.

I find all mainstream music a bit to artificial and heartless for myself, but otherwise feel lucky given that there is more good music out there today than ever before, including the ease of access to old rap. Plus you have online communities now, I would think good rap is just asking around people and see what small time artists they listen to. Since another thing always worth remembering is that each generations music tends to suck when compared to the last. People tend to have an affinity to what they are exposed to as kids and teens and its also bonded to their personal experiences.

Even if Eminem were black he'd still sell way more than 50 cent. 50 Cent is a mediocre rapper with a bad rap name.

He'd sell less and 50-Cent is way better.

True..

But the Days of Eric B & Rakim, Public Enemy etc etc imo was the Golden Age of Rap..

He'd have fewer sales numbers if he were black because he wouldn't have the novelty of "oh hey, a white rapper that doesn't suck like Vanilla Ice!", but he'd still sell more than 50 Cent considering his material is just better.

Hip hop just got passed to a newer generation of listeners. Doesn't mean it's dead, just not for you anymore.

I disagree, rap always really sucked. There are a few exceptions, but overall it's always been crappy and mostly worthless and offensive noise.

@WillPayton: That same thing has been said about pretty much every form of music at some point in time.

#23 Posted by Bogey (967 posts) - - Show Bio

A lot of those golden age rappers that people missed are still rapping. Rakim, Kool G Rap, and KRS ONE still do there thing. When people say hip hop is dead, it just comes off as pretentious.

Mainstream Hip-Hop really sucks now, but Undergound Hip-Hop, as always, is a lot better.

Off the top of my head, because it demeans women, promotes and glamorizes violence and criminal lifestyles, and promotes negative stereotypes of blacks. Is that enough?

Not all rap does these things Listen to guys Like Mos Def, Lupe Fiasco, and Telib Kweli.

Whether all rap doesnt do it is irrelevant. Rap is well known for these things, and not unjustifiably so.

Those people are a minority. and none of those rappers sale many albums and none are "household" names. I'm willing to bet if you listed the top 20 best selling rap artist of all time, 15 of them do these things: demeans women, promotes and glamorizes violence and criminal lifestyles, and promotes negative stereotypes of blacks

Nah. Biggie, Tupac, etc are all better. 50-Cent is way better, he is cooler and has more style.

This is the real Eminem.
