Cool i think this whole "hip hop is dead" movement relates to boxings "the heavyweight...

division is dead"

okay, well the past year or so some rappers (most of them being from the east or the west coast) have quoted this saying that "hip hop is dead". But i dont think that's the case,hate it or love it, if you go place's in the Midwest or south and say "hip hop is dead" there saying the complete opposite.... there selling like crazy, on the radio more, get more live shows which means more money more ho's and more dro.... but anyways I can not stand a rapper stating "hip hop is dead" i mean, there a mc they got a deal if they think its dead they need to get up and do something about it.... switch there style up or something in order to get people to purchase it more, i do a little rap stuff on the side and honestly as much as a ***** tells u it aint about the money its 4 the love of the music 99% of the time it is money, and having that option to take care of your loved ones...... but 's I feel like if your not selling you gotta switch up your style so you do sell more and get more money.... not "sell out" but change some lil things to try to get ppl to buy ya **** more...... to me its like some rappers are "selling watch's to a bunch of people with no arms"'..... its just like hustling to me, if your on the block and trying to sell something but no one buys it, wouldn't you change something? try to get a better product ext......

this is the same thing thats going on with boxing in the united states were saying "the heavyweight division is dead" but if you walk in Europe and the country's of the four champions they would say the complete opposite.... trainers and boxers saying this makes me sick...... I mean there in the business so train harder do something to bring it back the states but saying "its dead" is just crying like a ho.....



so to sum it up.. hip hop is not dead..... just some of the rappers who USED to run **** in the 90's well are still stuck in the 90's and now cant sell and are just *****ing.... and also the heavyweight division is not dead... just the American boxers aren't good enough simple as that, the European hw's have more skills, they prolly trained and worked harder.... now this aint a knock agenst east or west coast rappers i grew up on pac snoop big dre ext.... and this isnt a knock on american hw's i grew up on tyson holyfeild ext but the rappers not selling and hw's not winning need to step there game up and stop crying.......


do you think America has a bad habit of complaining like this and not ACTUALLY doing something?


this has been bothering me for awhile so I had to make this post... tell me what u think

Main stream hip hop is as dead as its ever been. There is one station around my area that plays hip hop and its at a special time at night monday through friday. You make a good comparison, although I dont think that everyone should south just to sell. I think radio stations and music channels should just play more hip hop period. If all people hear is southern music, with loud bass and sub par lyrics then thats what they will like.

Yeah, Hip Hop and Emceeing is dead right now, at least in the mainstream. There is always going to be good music out there but atm in the mainstream it is dead b/c you have southern dummies running the stations when all they are talking about is grills, dubs, hoes and money.
