How do you guys feel about hip hop in the NYC metro area? How do you guys feel about hip hop in general today?

I'm stuck in the '90s when it comes to hip hop.

Yeah same here for the most part. There's certain people out there who are really good today though.

Let me hear some names, I'd like to check them out. I've been turned off from having to sift through so much garbage in order to find one decent track. Why I've been sticking to the classics.

That's a good one, I love the Onion. I am unironically annoyed that hip hop ain't what it used to be, though.

Same goes for other genres. Guess I'm getting old.

I agree 100%. It is a shame New York City ain't source of good hip-hop music like in the past. Last decent hip-hop music I heard was not necessarily from NYC. Elzhi is a true lyrical MC from Detroit. A hot producer/MC named Oddisee from Washington, DC released People Hear What They See last year. Immortal Technique is a Hispanic political MC from Harlem. Maybe artists like these could inspire new generation of NYC emcees.

Joey bada$$ is pretty good. Kendrick lamar is pretty good. J cole isn't bad. Meek mill has some nice tracks. Big Krit is pretty good. Flatbush zombies aren't bad. Action Bronson is good. I recommend you listen to the tracks "catharsis" and "from the tombs" by Joey bada$$.

I haven't heard any good rock music either. But the NYC rappers don't even sound like they're from there. ASAP rocky sounds like he's southern.
