all you ppl complaining about modern rap being garbage need to get your heads out of your asses and stop being lazy. granted MOST modern rap is garbage, the mainstream stuff in particular. but that doesnt mean there isnt great new rap out there so if you ppl were really fans of hiphop you would take the time to find it.
j.cole, xv, wale, black hippy (kendrick lamar, jay rock, ab-soul, schoolboy q) etc just to name a few off the top of my head. yall might not be fans off these particluar dudes but there are a couple of other good artists out there not to mention some old *****s still releasing quality ****.
you are right about this being a poor time to be a rap fan, you cant just turn on the radio and find good hiphop anymore, you have to do your own research. but if you do that research you will find good music, most artists youre gonna come across will suck balls but if you really like rap its worth taking the time out to find the quality sht bcuz it is out there.
