I really don't know where rap is going to go from here, but, unfortunately, it has already made its mark and is becoming the cultural image of what black people are and value today.

    That is sad.

    *tear*
    I remember reading a magazine article about Will.i.am being at a BET awards show, and they didn't show him any respect because he is a black "pop" star that does not produce stereotypically black music, and while I' don't personally enjoy his music or most of rap music in general, this showed me what a piece of crap BET is.

    It seems that the hiphop/R&B culture in general is very conformist and if you're a young black person you're expected to listen exclusivey to black rap/R&B. If you're a young black man, you're supposed to be loud, aggressive, unintellectual, and thuggish. In fact, the word nerd basically means "hyperwhite" and while nerds are generally considered uncool, nerds are often associated with high intelligence. I think alot of black youth get this false thug anti-intellectual image from the rap/R&B culture. It's a self destructive culture that encourages misogyny, crime, bling, conformism, and stupidity.

    Most rappers that try to make meaningful and thoughtful music are largely ignored and hiphop has been in this bling bling cycle for 13+ years. Unlike rock music that usually has periods of excess(prog rock, hair metal, emo) followed by back to basics movements(punk, grunge), this has yet to happen to mainstream hiphop culture, just more and more excess. Rap music now in 2010 is getting uprooted by electronica/dance music or has HUGE influences from it and I think this will be the music of the future.

    That's what the major recording companies want you to believe.

    The rap, hip hop, and r&b that's manufactured on a mainstream scale today makes up a very small portion of the music being produced from these genres. It's just that the general public sees more of the degrading, misogynistic self-hatred that is popular rap/hip hop because of the sphere of influence and loads of money networks like MTV have while good, creative, lyrical rap and hip hop artists get overlooked/no play/stuck in obscure music communities.

    ...and if you're a young black person you're expected to listen exclusivey to black rap/R&B. If you're a young black man, you're supposed to be loud, aggressive, unintellectual, and thuggish. In fact, the word nerd basically means "hyperwhite" and while nerds are generally considered uncool, nerds are often associated with high intelligence. I think alot of black youth get this false thug anti-intellectual image from popular rap/R&B culture, or rap/hip hop artists signed with major record companies. It's a self destructive culture that encourages misogyny, crime, bling, conformism, and stupidity.
    Tweaked. Just a bit.

    Most rappers that try to make meaningful and thoughtful music are largely ignored and hiphop has been in this bling bling cycle for 13+ years.

    I have a theory on this, although I do certainly think hip hop has gone through phases like rock has.

    Rap music now in 2010 is getting uprooted by electronica/dance music or has HUGE influences from it and I think this will be the music of the future.
    Yeah I can see that happening.

    Same sample in Lisa Lisa's "Let the Beat Hit 'Em"

    I'm really into the indie rap and a lot of local music from Minneapolis. Of course there is the God which is Slug from Atmosphere that I know everyone has heard of... but other than that a current fave EYEDEA&ABILITIES YouTube - Eyedea & Abilities - Smile next we have DOOMTREE also a sick ensamble made up of the finest indie rappers to come out of minneapolis! YouTube - doomtree - Jaded - Doomtree (not a video but a song definitley worth checking out, the girl rapping in the song is Dessa a staple in Doomtree but also an AMAZING solo artist of herself! And you cannot forget the greatness that is Brother Ali
    YouTube - Brother Ali - Uncle Sam Goddamn You can quote him, "I'm the albino but you all pale in comparison".


    ALL HAIL INDIE RAP!
