    The generation of the '60's used to say what or who the generation of the '90's was listening to was crap, just like how the generation of the '90's is doing now, well at time's, people all ways tend to look back with a nostalgia

    Based on sheer storytelling and substance?

    No the new niggas cant touch the O.Gs

    Based on melody and new ways to flow lyrics over beats?

    Yes The new niggas put a new spin on the genre

    I'll admit that the new generation has a different style of flowing. But I think its wack. I honestly don't see what people see in Drake. I bought one of his albums and only played it once because just as I was starting to get into it he'd start singing with auto tune.

    Whatever happened to digging in the crates, finding a hot sample and rapping over it with your regular voice?

    Bruuuu this is a new generation let it go alot of younger folks don't even know who krs one is
    Hell I've never heard a song from the nigga and I'm not gonna start now cuz well...... Ion give af abt him lol foh all in yo feelings

    pretty simple kend//jcole wouldnt last long or even remotely blow up in the late 90s early 00s

    drake would have a chance based on him being a RnB singer for the bitches

    all three of those artist are overrated as fuck because of how week hip-hop is. sorry but this genre has been watered down, its the new country music, has its lane but its week compared to the greats

    you would have to be a handicap motherfucker if you think kendrick could ever touch anything snoop//ice cube//tupac did in there prime

    Also you gotta keep in mind that back in the day we had clear distinctions between rap, r&b and pop music whereas now we live in an era of sellouts and crossover acts.

    A lot of today's so-called hip-hop fans (both on this board and off) are really just pop music fans riding whatever the popular wave is. Once you accept that you can decide what their opinions are actually worth.

    Exhibit A:
    Like I said J Cole is late 90s nas. He's good and has a sizeable fan base but he's basically irrelevant in pop culture and no one who really maters is checking for dude.

    Who thinks like that?

    I can't remember who I heard explain that but they was going in about how once hip hop or rap became globalized and filtered into almost every genre of music, it was more of a detriment than a benefit. when hip hop was isolated and looked at as a niche genre it flourished and we felt like it was "our thing", now that hip hop is everywhere, it is nowhere. if that makes any sense.

    KRS was on a major label from 1987-1997. Who was hotter than KRS between 1987-1997?

    Arguably LL Cool J, Ice Cube maybe Dr Dre.

    Rakim was hot from 86-92 but he took a break while KRS kept going.

    Kool G Rap could rhyme his ass off but he never made that 5 mic classic.

    Too Short had the West Coast on lock but cats on the East Coast weren't feeling him.

    Slick Rick was in jail.

    Treach was dope but KRS has a good 5 years on him.

    Big and Pac were hot from 94-97 but KRS had already been out for 8 years.

    Nas was just getting started when KRS's contract ended with Jive.

    Jay Z had a few false starts and didn't really get going until after KRS went independent.

    What the f&$k is your point sir?
