Ban Trap Music and Mumble Rap!
Hip-hop has arguably been the best genre of music in the past two decades. As hip-hop maintains its title, a lot has changed about the genre, such as the lyrics.
When hip-hop was getting started, it had music based prevalently on African American culture. Artists such as Tupac, Biggie Smalls, and Eazy-E often rapped about the struggles of growing up in a racialized environment and the work they put in to get where they are today.
Hip-hop today has different types of lyrics. All rappers use the same sounds, same beat styles, and most rappers today mumble or use Autotune. Rappers from today’s generation sing typically about girls, money, and cars they have. Some even sing about how they do drugs, drink alcohol, and party which sets a bad example for some listeners. Some of these rappers today did not have it as hard as rappers back in the old days. Also, Hip-hop artists now are racially diverse, so African American culture is not necessarily found in music today.
People of this generation are used to listening to trap music which is the most played genre on the radio. These same fans reject old school Hip-Hop as a part of the music genre. There are even rappers who know nothing about the most influential Hip-Hop artists.
