Will Hip Hop Be Relevant In 15-20 Years?

Besides the underground do you see hip-hop evolving in 15-20 years? Or do you think it will be taken over by garbage rappers? Also, do you think trap music would still be relevant too? In my opinion, I think the young people now will look and the that Lil Wayne was a G.O.A.T artist. I'm young and I don't think Wayne is a G.O.A.T. What music will us Black people create next is what I ask myself. I don't want the hip-hop culture to die out. When you have artist who suck the future doesn't look bright. Just look at Chief Keef and Lil Mouse. These are the people who are suppose to represent the future? I miss when hip-hop had meaning. Like when you listen to Nas and Tupac. Everybody discuss where do you see our culture of hip-hop going? There's a lot of things I love from Pro Wrestling although I don't watch it much. Plus MMA/Martial Arts, and I love Hip-Hop and the dancing/battles that comes with it.

    I know eras change, but in my opinion this era has been the worst. Besides from a few good artists we don't have anyone that can carry the torch.

    Yes and No. It's always going to be around, but I think commercially, beats, rhymes and life is behind us. Once you inject money into an art form, the art generally suffers on the surface. So run of the mill fans that listen to the radio will never really know what it's all about. It will be here, but the average person is getting super watered down product. I shudder to think what it will be like in 20 years.

    Yeah you make a point with that. Maybe I am looking into that too much. I just kinda get worried with it sometimes because I love the hip-hop culture.

    Hip-Hop is pop music now.... eventually it will evolve into something way off from what it used to sound like - shit we're already seeing it now. What will happen is that sub genres will emerge and become the new medium for pop music to flourish just like how when Rock & Roll "died" punk rock and emo rock came into prominence.

    Another thing too is that fans need to let these older artists grow and accept them. People out here saying Scarface, Nas, Prodigy, KRS-One, Chuck D, Peewee Kirkland are "irrelevant" cuz they're not making songs with Drake, Wale, A$AP Rocky & them SMMFH, not realizing that these dudes are the fabric of what keeps and holds Hip-Hop together. Without them to drop science and educate yall on what the mathematics is in 2014, Hip-Hop ceases to exist and gets run over by corporate interests who will use and abuse it for their benefit and make it so Hip-Hop can no longer birth opportunities for blacks the way it used to. Keep on dissing the old and watch what will happen with the new......

    Yea it will, but mainstream hip hop will probably be worse than what it is now.

    The question isn't specific enough.

    1. Are you asking in 15-20 years will people still be listening to Illmatic, The Chronic, It Takes A Nation of Millions To Hold Us Back and Paid in Full?

    2. Or are you asking in 15-20 years will there be rap albums that are better than and surpass Illmatic, The Chronic, It Takes A Nation of Millions To Hold Us Back and Paid in Full?

    co-sign, especially the folks that grew up with it. you think people that grew up with jazz and the blues stop listening to those genres when they weren't relevant? hell no. people will always go back to what they're familiar with, especially if they're older.
