ON THAT GRIND TIME
Its all about Living The Life global takeover ….read my talk to me comment think ive hit it on the head when it comes the defining the era or what we class is defining the era
You should read my long ass comment, you will have a better understanding of why hip hop is what it is
right now. Maybe than you might have a better out look in music and life itself. We need more inspirational rappers that understand what goes on in today’s society, understand what goes on in a person’s mind, and understand what goes on in today’s life style. We need more intelligent rappers who got there fucking mind right because a lot of rappers out right now are immature, egotistical, superficial and arrogant. I don’t want to hear another rapper rapping about the same random shit millions of times. It was cool at first, but now it’s getting played out whack and I’m sick of it. Things need to be change lyrically. I don’t care if the beat is hot, I’m more into the artist who can spit lyrically correct.
lol whos that aimed at ?
Well i think this era of hip hop doesnt have an overall idenitifiable sound..The sound that i like the most and is the MOST identifiable is the Dirty South Sound..other than that its a whole lot of other sounds mixed all in and u cant really say aww thats that sound or whatever..its all over the place…eras used to have a place of origin and a style..cant say thats happening overall today other than from the South Jd
you are right jd… its defin an era..its only going to get more interesting people wanna dance and move away from their…watever…this music today makes you hype..feel better..wanna dance..the hip hop from 80, 90.. made you think of problems, things we already know wats going on and the hood and in the crib its like you cant escape reality with the old hip hop. but today its called getting crunk.its a new day soo like fat joe said just change ur style up if you wanna be in the game or else be left behind so while ur complaining and talking about the south the south is making the noise and i am from the North . but through my struggle in atlanta i fell in love with it all.. ATLANTA IS MY NEW HOME….THANKS JD FOR the song COMING TO ATLANTA..
went to sleep balling
woke up stunting
Just stay u cause, nothing else will ever do!!!!!!! Ljdf eternity
I do not agree that this is an era in the sense of the word. Every era of hip hop has been labeled or defined by some movement. Rather it was the beginning era of the late 70s early 80s, the black pride movement era of the late 80′s, the gangsta rap era that took it’s lead from the west coast in the early 90′s, the east/west battle of the mid 90′s, or the southern movement of the late 90′s early 2k. Each one of those eras had a common theme or thread that would keep hip hop close. Now, it seems everyone is going in different directions with the music, which is great, but the feeling of hip hop defining an era is gone.
The reason hip hop can no longer define an era is because hip hop has grown up! The music can no longer move in the same direction because the people who love the music now reside across different generations, before we were all in the same generation/time frame.
Everytime i see JD is always on that fly scale! (tilting my hat) The art of fashion is difficult for some but for others easy!
I agree with you JD, although I am not a fan of this music(new west coast/southern rap), this is an era in hip hop. I think that for everyone; at least myself, this era is the worst to digest for many reasons. All of the others eras in hip hop brought something new (as this one has too) while at the same time evolving the game into something great and much more on a talent level. I think people fell like this era has watered down hip hop and that you don’t have to have skill, talent, or a story like you did in the other eras of the game. It seems like given a hot beat, anyone can become a “hot” artist. While I’m all for people getting their money, i can’t respect their music the way I had respect for those who I felt actually had talent and passion toward hip hop rather than just to get some fame and a couple of dollars. If hip hop didn’t offer the possibilties of fame and millions, many of these artist today would have been invovled in music at all, and i just can’t respect that.
