I think hiphop is dead.

I heard on the west coast they have west coast wednesdays which is only 20 min. of west coast rap.

The radio is brain washing all the little urban kids with $%@# rap..Its not even hiphop no more seriously.

Same with rock stations.. I mean Jonas brothers????????? Give me a break.


Its the same here too, they play the same rappers over and over and sometimes you will hear Lil Wayne like 6 times in one hour, different songs of course but it all sucks so very bad.

its the same songs played over and over and over and over and on top of that they play them for like 3 months 30 times a day

Help is on the way...trust me.

We're working hard, and working fast.

Soon Souljah Boy, Brittany Spears, Jonas Brothers and all of those kiddy bop artists will be a thing of the past.

Capitalism killed music. It's gonna take the people to bring it back.

The Southern Hip Hop radio stations are the worst. They all play mainly Southern Hip Hop, which Southern Hip Hop killed Hip Hop.

what people? 75% of radio listeners support soulja boy and brittney spears. its kinda gettin depressin at this point, worst period in music's history, thats a fact. nobody these past 5-7 years blew the world by storm in a serious way in hip-hop like back in the 80's and 90's. hell ill take 01-04 music over 05-09 music anyday. let alone the 90's and 80's. we need more rappers who speak on true facts with deliverin lyrics and not the obvious, like "yeahh i get millions ima rapper i drive lamborghini" ok we get it man, who wants to hear about wat ur gettin? lol the culture isnt gonna change, blame that on mase n diddy for startin the whole mess.

mike
great knowledge
phenomenal knowledge
I might agree with you on 94.9, they do mostly play mainstream hip hop. However I think KMEL is a very good hip hop station. Yes they do rock mainstream songs often but they also include acts like Talib Kweli, Maxwell, Erykah Badu, Mos Def, goapele into their mixes.

I just checked out their play list for the last couple hours or so and they were bumping Tony Toni Tone, Rappin 4-tay, Too Short, E40, Rick Ross, Marvin Gaye, MC HAMMER!! LOL, Mac Dre, San Quin, 2 Pac and B.I.G....I mean come on

What does this have to do with the topic of the thread.

Anyway, yes, all stations are equally bad. You can blame the telecommunications act of 1996 for this very reason. Not only has it affected radio, but it has affected television too in a very bad way. The record companies are to blame as well for signing garbage.

In DC like someone else said, you have 93.9 and 95.5 and they are BOTH very bad. Both.

not sure the worst... but some of the black colleges have VERY good ones around the south if you are around one of them...
also I used to remember driving through mississippi and louisiana towards houston and hearing a lot of local stuff.
