It’s been some time since I’ve wrote anything or posted anything. Life can sometimes send you on a unfamiliar trip , that take’s time to get back to what one deems normal.
Was inspired bye recent posts that got my wheels turning a bit. The NEW AGE , of hip hop. Is not so much “New” in my opinion , but as some of my people have heard me say, more like the second coming of lyricist.
After some years of mumbling around with a mic in people’s hand , and calling it hip hop simply because the industry says it is. I took it as a slap in the face. For many “”OLD HEADS” ,and many young , and up an coming artist , I believe set out to show what it is to be engulfed in hip hop culture.
So my theory is that I can’t remember a time where I can be showed a dope artist out of nowhere, and from a breading ground not a custom to birthing a dope Crew, producers, DJ, lyricist. Sometimes seems as if they multiple overnight, from the spit of the last dope emcee holding the mic. The Rowdy Gremlins of the underground. It’s as if the thought of being called a Mumble rapper , has everyone proving through barz , that they are far from it . It’s inspired a new generation of artist , and brought some familiar one’s out of the dungeon to remind the masses that mastering this art form takes skill, and serious dedication honing there craft. It’s pushing artist to express themselves in ways I haven’t heard since the golden era. There not sounding the same because it’s gone globally.
Hip Hop has always been a underground scene. it’s mere existence is the underground. I use to have to search for the crack that was needed for my fix. Now it’s everywhere if you just open your eyes , and ears while turning off the tracks that have been shoved down the Masses throats while saying it’s dope, before your allowed to make up one’s mind. That can end if you so choose. You may not know the words to the blah blah song that’s hot for the following 3 weeks. But you could here individuals teach, preach ,story tell, share expierence , and many other things through speach if you choose. Huge platforms available in the digital age has made it fairly easy. Most of the time the artist are individuals, instead of the follower’s of trends, and lack of a thought. Most so called hottest artist in hip hop have regurgitated opinions, trends, from the so called people in the know about the culture. Even writing about it has me Mumbling on , and could do this for hour’s. What’s your opinion ? How are you feeling about the state of hip hop?
