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.
A lot, because Hip Hop radio stations play Hip Hop music right? So yeah this have to do a lot with the topic. Southern Hip Hop killed Hip Hop in general. So the Southern Hip Hop Radio stations are the worst.

When we talk about good hip hop we aren't just talking about socially conscious music. We're talking about GOOD music. It doesn't have to be about something positive, it just needs to be creative, fresh, and new. That's what Hip-Hop is about. Its a form of expression, in rhyme, spoken over a beat.

There is no creativity in mainstream hip hop anymore. It's all the same garbage. Jay-Z, Nas, Biggie, KRS-1, 2pac weren't always talking about something positive, but they were talking about something real. They were EXPRESSING themselves, not just talking about whatever the last artist said in order to try to make a few bucks.

But I guess if your fine with the stuff on the radio now then you never were a true hip hop fan and you just have other interest. Thats fine, but for us real hip hop fans out there, we are bored and tired of the same sh*t on the radio.

There is nothing fresh and new about any of that, when EPMD rapped "When you was p*ssin in your bed, I was makin a mill" or "with fake mugs, runnin they mouth with the place bugged, and caught a slug and no one saw anything but the mask and gloves" it was the same street talk that Jay-Z used on songs like Cant knock the Hustle on Reasonable Doubt. Or when later Jeezy rapped about counting a million dollars in drug money on his living room floor in Trap or Die, or Gucci Mane rapping about kicking in someones door and robbing them, it was all the same street talk. What is fresh and new about any of that, the only difference is the slang will be different as the artists will be from different areas. Basically my point is those artists you mentioned all have recycled styles, swags, even recycled lyrics as Jay-Z has bitten allot of Biggies lyrics and Nas even has bitten Pac's lyrics. Which is hilarious to me because when 'Pac was alive he couldn't stand Nas. So once again, what is fresh and new about any of that stuff??????????????? And you apparently are not a real hip hop fan as you cant even see the similarities in artists lyrics, either because you have a lazy ear, or you just choose to listen to what you like. I am a true hip hop fan because I listen to rap from all time periods and locations, even if I dont like it.

Is this a bad thing? For me no for someone who wants more variety and more underground hip hop that isn't just about dancing the answer is yes.
I actually believe that too much attention is paid to hip/hop on the mainstream stations - I mean overplayed. Especially in some markets where Clear Channel (among others) have both a CHR Rhythmic/Hip Hop and a CHR Mainstream/Pop CHR.

When Energy 92.7 (dance) left the airwaves in AZ last November after almost 7 years, it was replaced with the 92.7 & 99.3 The Beat, which is Classic Hip/Hop.

Well, it almost did - Mega Media (Pulse 87 - NY) had plans to expand Pulse 87 to other markets including DC and LA, but alas, they filed for bankruptcy. So that means the continued existence of Pulse 87 in NY is in question as well, although Mega Media is hoping to continue operating Pulse as it restructures under Chapter 11.

Mainstream radio is dead and lifeless, that's the problem. There is still good hip hop to be found and in other genres too. I find all my music pretty much on the internet now. Radio is just another corporate for profit business. Many people who listen to radio hear the songs but don't actually listen. That way radio can feed you any bs and call it gold. I'll listen to what I want thank you.
