Hip hop today? They still play hip hop? I think that today's hip hop is garbage.

Here's what I mean. Mark Morrison’s Return of the Mack. While you wouldn't necessarily consider it hip hop, it was something you would bump in your car back in the days. When French Montana did a rap version to this perfectly good song, he destroyed it and my thoughts of listening to any new hip hop. I rather listen to the news on my drive to and from work. "You give us 22 minutes; we'll give you the world." I find that more entertaining than the crap that comes on the radio now.

I still listen to Classic Flavors from time to time with Chubb Rock or I bump Pandora for the real stuff. Was just listening to some Mr. Scarface on the way in today. His delivery and his lyrics are classic in my opinion.

Rap is not just having a beast of a bass drum to rap to. You have to have something to have the listener say hmmm... yo, that's clever.

plenty of crates to dig through to find what
you want plus there is still new underground
hip hop out there too. music is music.

Out of this list, French Montana is a bit suspect. He knows what real hip hop is, but it is clear that the almighty dollar is #1 to him. He's currently on Bad Boy Records with Diddy, and a lot of what he puts out is in line with the dirty south sound moreso than a real New York sound. The same can be said at times about ASAP Rocky.

I'm more concerned about the mental state of people who still listen to Hip Hop....especially if they are overt the age of 15.
