what are you talking about hip hop was born here no way its gonna die.soulbro said:Will east coast hip hop become the top draw again? With the south now dominating the industry it looks as if east coast hip hop is on it's death bed.
Can East coast hip hop make a comeback it's looks bleak right now.
FloridaFuture said:Also East Coast/Hardcore rappers are retiring. Jay-Z, Eminem, Nas are all at the end of their careers and 50 Cent's last album "The Massacre" sucked compared to his debut classic album "Get Rich or Die Trying". Southern rap with the exception of Ludacris is meaningless lyracally.
I definitely agree. Even mainstream hip-hop during those decades are pretty good as well compared to those of today.Spooky873 said:i dont like where music is going today. the new shit out is just plain terrible, that goes for any genre. how many more times can we sing about the same shit? the only ones that will leave a mark will be the pioneers. im an old school guy so most of the shit i listen to is from the 90s, and the only new shit ill get is from the vets.

It's not just that but also beats and the quality of tracks. Today, it's mostly bounce or club. I don't even feel most of today's rappers even Kanye West!AirJay78 said:the reason the 90s was am amazing time for hip hop and each of these people had a small piece of the 90s crown. And mind you, I haven't even begun to scratch the surface of the amount of really great artist there were in this era. Today, theres only a handfull. And even within those, only 1 or 2 stick for a little while.
