Over the years it has changed, though. Stereo Williams Updated Jan. 20, 2018 8:36PM ET / Published Jan. 20, 2018 8:35AM ET Today’s rappers really only discuss like five things (women, money, drugs, parties, guns) and while 90’s rappers also covered those topics, they had a much more diverse range and that’s another reason why it was the best era. I could name a long list of post-90s rappers right now who are keeping the culture alive, but weâd be here forever. There are and have been rappers that focus(ed) on social issues since, but a lot of those rappers aren’t mainstream or hyper popular and there aren’t really any rappers that are mainstream and popular that are releasing singles like Tupac’s ‘Brenda’s Got a Baby’ or ‘Keep Your Head Up’ (or his first posthumous single, ‘Changes’). For the purposes of this post I use "Old Heads" just as a term for those who hate on the hip hop scene today. Because of the lack of support, it really made it even more impressive that rappers were willing to talk about things like that as they not only fell on mostly deaf ears, but they also created a backlash that was unprecedented at the time (see entry #9). Today, you donât feel the movement. The overall ubiquity of rap has created an environment in which thereâ s zero quality control. Old school hip hop typically dates from the origination of the movement in the early 1970s up until the mid-1980s. Could it be todayâs young bloods are happy with making something that is flavour of the month, but which will have no lasting effect on the culture? Hip-hop encompasses everything from dance and fashion to music. From a glance it looks like artists today are happy to have their moment in the sun and peace out with a cheque theyâll inevitably end up blowing on ridiculous things (which weâd all do given the chance). Another difference besides how these groups were formed (although, to be fair, Junior Mafia and The Outlawz were formed a lot like D-12 or G-Unit) as compared to the groups from the 00’s is the fact that these groups actually produced amazing albums. 3. As this entire list will show, though, modern-day rappers are basically integrated with corporations and because of that they really don’t want to rub anyone the wrong way and interrupt the flow of money they receive from sponsorships and concert promoters. Maybe youâd be right on all three counts, but forgive me if wanting a little bit of quality from hip hopâs current generation is asking too much. As I said, thereâs still a collective of artists that are reaching the standards set by the legends who came before them, and in some instances theyâre surpassing them. However, the true difference occurs when you look at how […] Tupac Shakur, who was known as a walking contradiction because of the difference between his story telling songs and his party songs (the former of which was really pro-woman with songs like Keep Your Head Up or Brenda’s Got a Baby, the latter of which talked about sleeping around with women, like I Get Around, for example), also did a great job of projecting the mindset of a young black man whose mother was addicted to crack and who had multiple negative run ins with objectively bad police (as he sued the Oakland Police Department for brutality and won). After that album blew up there were and still are albums from group members like Method Man, RZA, Ghostface Killa, Old Dirty Bastard and GZA, whose Only Built 4 Cuban Linx album is one of the best albums of all-time, as well. Nostalgia has it’s place. Variety: There’s hip hop all over the place. Beyond that, you had groups like NWA and especially Public Enemy, that rapped about real issues. While that did extend into the early 2000’s with people like Scott Storch, there aren’t really a ton of producers out there today that were on that level. Old school dance includes popping, locking, and break-dance became common among black dancers. The very thing that’s happening with hip-hop right now is what disco did, and Melle Mel came out and made a record; ‘The Message’.” “Right now, we need a 17, 19-year-old individual to make ‘The Message’, to shut down all the nonsense that we’re celebrating.” Mixing percussive beats with popular dance songs, Kool Herc was instrumental in developing the sounds that became synonymous with hip hop, such as drum beats and record scratches. Old hip hop is wayyy better than the new shit. They think hip hop is about the beat of the music and the fame of the rapper. the list is female rappers who shaped hip hop. The Hollywood movie The Founder told the awesome rags-to-riches-by-way-of-backstabbing story of McDonald’s restaurants. It had the GOATs. During the late 90’s and early aughts, the typical evolution/game plan of a rapper’s career was to drop a debut album, wait for that to blow up, start one’s own record label and then release an album with whatever group they put together with friends from their childhood/neighborhood. At least with â90s veterans thereâs a back catalogue of hit-after-hit you can rely on. Sure a lot of it sucks ass, but there’s some really great hip hop … Much of the subject matter of old-school hip hop centers around partying and having a good time. We heard less about the music he was making and more about his constant run-ins with the law. Hip hop is great music and I can literally say it helped me to become a better person. Benjamin Anderson Ms. Marae Bailey English 110 January 18, 2010 Old School versus New School Hip Hop Many people believe that all hip hop music is the same. Mar 21, 2019 177 166 153. While the heyday of story-telling rap was really the 80’s, with most early raps being stories (or hype songs… “Let me clear my throat”), like most things hip hop the 90’s not only improved on storytelling but also basically perfected it. Like the theory/justification for capitalism, competition is actually a good thing because it breeds innovation and change. Iâm not demanding todayâs rappers drop knowledge darts in the club (no one has time for that when youâre getting LIT), â90s duo Capone-N-Noreaga (CNN) werenât exactly known for their intricate lyrics, but they still made long-lasting material. What we got from Keef was multiple carbon copies of his first two hits. I want to believe in the new generation of artists bringing the culture forward , I really do. With the evolution of hip-hop and rap, how has the music changed, and what is better, the golden age of hip hop of the 80’s, 90’s, and early 2000’s or the more contemporary and evolved music? Today’s hip-hop today as compared to 90’s hip-hop can best be compared to the NBA today versus the NBA of the 90’s (or Michael Jordan’s NBA). You’d think that with the number of movements going on right now (#MeToo, Black Lives Matter) that the top rappers in the game would be focusing a lot more on social issues instead of releasing songs like “Hotling Bling”. It's the present cultural zeitgeist, the new rock and roll. Here are 5 reasons why: 1. So, that explains the “why” a bit more, but it doesn’t change the fact that albums were better as a whole in the 90’s. That lead to consequences like the FBI following rappers like Tupac Shakur and the Notorious BIG, to the point that they were trailing both when they were murdered (yet somehow didn’t intervene or provide any useful information to the police that were investigating those deaths). As hip-hop maintains its title, a lot has changed about the genre, such as the lyrics. The music industry isn’t what it was even in the 90’s and so it is understandable that musicians can’t rely on the sale of their albums the way that rappers did in the 90’s, a lot of which was driven by controversy that helped their albums seem cool to kids in the suburbs (not to mention the people that were buying them just to stomp on/burn them during protests). Old-school hip hop is noted for its relatively simple rapping techniques, compared to later hip hop music. The difference between hip-hop today and hip hop from the 90’s is that today’s hip-hop really just jumps from trend to trend, from krunk to sing-songy rap (think Ja Rule, and then try not to shudder), to the high pitched chorus’ of Kanye West’s beats, whereas 90’s rap seemed to change based on a natural evolution that comes from competition and creativity. I'm old. "The Notorious Big" arrived on the rap scene in the early '90s, it was obvious that people saw their music as inferior compared to the hip hop of their generation. It was that focus on his gangland connections which ultimately led to his drop-off as an artist. Compare Dr. Dre’s production on NWA’s first album to what he did with Death Row and you’ll see a natural evolution that is a lot like what the Beatles were doing in the late 60’s. You don't have to be old to know how that's complete nonsense. His full-length debut, Summertime ’06, actually feels like a throwback nineties, early millennium album. Nas is a great example beyond that, as well, as when he suddenly had to compete against someone again he came back with such a vengeance that he created a new verb (getting “Ethered”). Hip-hop is found somewhere between freestyle raps about not feeling accepted because of the sociopolitical conditions in your country and the Bronx in the 1970s -- when young people were not accepted in schools, but welcome in prisons. That rebellion in the 90’s took guts as there were real consequences behind the actions those rappers took as both politicians on both sides of the political spectrum were targeting rap as an, especially dangerous cancer for the youth. Quit your yappin about the 90s being the better era of hip hop! While 80’s hip-hop was relatively basic and sort of lame, it did end up evolving into the best era for hip-hop music ever, which occurred in the early-to-mid 90’s. All types. Hip-hop has become … A huge â and very important â factor in this longevity and continued relevance is the fact that artists from that era cared about their content. The talent was so amazing and the classics were being released month after month, that’s something that’ll never happen again and that’s really the reason why 90’s hip-hop is the best. As is also explained in the third entry on this list, rappers/emcees were anti-establishment back in the 90’s as opposed to being fully integrated into the few corporations left that produce and release music these days. However, the film... We are not perfect, we all have made these mistakes, some more than others. Here are 5 reasons why: 1. While every generation claims that the era of music they grew up listening to is the best, there is an objective argument to be made that certain decades definitely had better music than others, either as a whole or in terms of specific types of music. One of the main differences between 90’s hip-hop and today’s rap is really the fact that a lot of the producers back then were as famous as the rappers/emcees they were working with. That’s what happened with Shakur and Smalls, who were 25 and 24 respectively when they were gunned down. However there doesnât seem to be enough of their kind, and if they continue to be outnumbered by throwaway artists then sooner or later the genre is going to end up on a WatchMojo article such as this. Hip-Hop dance can be broken up into two basic types: old school and new school. Hip-Hop is an incredibly diverse and deep genre with many sub-genres that connect together in a huge web that brings people all over the world together. Sure a lot of it sucks ass, but there’s some really great hip hop out there also. Checkmate. The internet was raving about how good his XXL Freshman freestyle was, but in all honesty all I could think was âitâs okayâ. Those consequences made their music feel even more relevant and genuine and that’s something that just doesn’t exist anymore. Arzil17 Regular. New school dance which came about around the 1990s, include the same things but … Err… why is everyone so attracted to hip hop culture? Most of the more modern group’s albums had a lot of filler, with songs that you really only listened to in order to hear the star of the group like Eminem or Nelly (to a much lesser extent), whereas groups like Wu-Tang really had no weak members and no filler songs. Most of the drinks on this list are real, but not all. Then you have Snoop Dogg(y Dogg) in his prime, Dr. Dre’s the Chronic and G-Funk style and amazing groups The Wu-Tang Clan’s 36 Chambers and Mobb Deep. Mumble rap doesn’t define it, but it isn’t trying to. However, new school artists have pushed the boundaries of hip-hop music and created sub-genres within the genre. Not long after the inception of hip hop, many artists split from the disco movement inspired by funk music and started creating music based on funk base line. I discovered hip hop when I was 13 years old (now I’m 26) and was going through a lot. Slick beats and fun music. Variety: There’s hip hop all over the place. One day all good music will be forgotten and the music that … nikki minaj isnt a rapper, shes a pop star. Shakur’s FBI file is available online and is really, really long, especially for a musician (most famous people have an FBI file, mostly because of the death threats they receive). The NWA biopic Straight Outta Compton is an example of the impact the culture has had â and still has â on music. I compare him to a freshman like XXXTentacion because so far all I know about him is that he got sucker punched at his show in San Diego. In fact I want them to kill off the âgolden ageâ and kick start a new one, but how can that happen when half these guys canât even pull a decent freestyle? Artists such as Melle Mel would use few syllables per bar of music, with simple rhythms and a moderate tempo. The latter of which, The Seven Day Theory, is a lot like The Dark Side of the Moon in that if you listen from beginning to end there’s really no gap between songs (and there are things you’ll miss if you skip ahead). If you look at their last five albums both artists have gone Gold and Platinum respectively*. *Nasâs last studio album Life Is Good didnât go Gold. I absolutely agree with you! Hip hop is no doubt more diverse than it was in the 80s and 90s, but itâ s also oversaturated. It might sound like Iâm being elitist, far from it â I want these new artists to succeed, but the trick is to continuously make innovative, long-lasting content. Old school “hip-hop” has music based prevalently on African American culture. That’s because they took immense risks and were really experimenting with music in ways that producers these days really don’t, as they were at the point in the evolution of the genre where they were being rewarded by experimentation because they cared more about the craft than they did how well a certain song performed on the charts or radio. Nowadays, hip-hop has faded to the underground and rap fills the airwaves. Hip hop is no doubt more diverse than it was in the 80s and 90s, but itâ s also oversaturated. If you go to any rap video on YouTube and check the comments you’ll eventually run into a comment (or 500) that states that whichever rapper whose video you’re watching/listening to “wouldn’t exist if Tupac/Biggie was still alive” and while that’s probably a mix between hyperbole and wishful thinking, those people have a point. Nowadays, it's become a thriving industry of music, but all these artists sound similar and lack the beats we used to enjoy back in the day. Today’s hip-hop has been described as corporate hip-hop, because most of the biggest rappers/emcees are really all about making money and while they may rap about things like drugs and women, often in a profane way, they’re really not focusing on things like social issues or taking on the establishment as they’ve basically become the establishment. It may be blasphemy to not give Slick Rick credit for being the best storyteller in the game, especially considering that his classic album The Art of Story Telling was released in the 90’s, one of the main difference between what 80’s and 90’s rappers were doing in terms of storytelling is/was the content of those stories. Some of the greatest rock albums of all-time feel like one long adventure, as the songs seem to blend together even if you’re not on LSD. These are the thoughts that dwell in my head when I think back to artists like Lil Jon (who I once unashamedly/mistakenly compared to James Brown! I hope you like what i had to say All types. I would agree with swagger about hip hop because hip hop is better than country and most of me and her songs are in hip hop. Also Watch. Tupac Shakur, for example, had multiple songs removed from his earlier albums (namely Thug Life: Volume 1) because of the fervor over his music and that all lead to Warner Brothers dropping Interscope Records after people protested outside of their headquarters. 2. Hip-hop is a decades-old, global phenomenon. Hip-hop, more than any other form of music (perhaps outside of early rock and roll) is a consistently changing art form. That’s because the first Bush White House had made an issue out of rap music, namely rap music that targeted the police. Since the late 1970s, when the culture and music was taking form, there was something unique about the beats and … There was NWA (which technically was formed/in it’s prime in the late 80’s), Mobb Deep, Thug Life, Junior Mafia, Live Squad, The Outlawz, Cyprus Hill, De La Soul, A Tribe Called Quest and many more. Now before you guys get itchy trigger fingers in the comments section let me put it out there: this is in no way a dig at the current crop of hip hop artists out there today. Wu-Tang’s 36 Chambers is a great example of this, as is Notorious BIG’s Ready to Die and Tupac/Makaveli’s Don Killuminati: The Seven Day Theory. The main thing wasn’t just that 90’s rappers released those songs as singles, but that they made classic songs that were actually really great to listen to as well. Beyond that, there were actual “Hip Hop Cops” in cities like New York, that investigated the rappers connection to the gun and drug trade as well as their connection to organized crime. Hip-hop needs more of that, but it’s understandable why people moved away from that as both Tupac and Biggie died because of their intense competition and people like 50 Cent really just made “beef” into a cheap way to get attention before an album was ready to drop. 1. Another con of modern day rap is the fact that hooks are often repetitive and simple. Wait, you really, actually, seriously think hip-hop is better today?. The comment he made was that he felt the period […] Arts (266) Cars (289) Economics (522) Education (1149) Entertainment (1689) Fashion (248) Funny (812) Games (1350) Health (840) Miscellaneous (4479) Movies (930) Music (1065) News (353) People (2254) In a bad way. But the harsh reality is the quality of modern day hip hop (if we can even call it that) has dropped severely since entering the millennium. Rappers like Ice-T, whose song “Cop Killer” (which was, to be fair, actually a rock song with his band Body Count) started a national debate about free speech as it applied to music. It is the number 1 consumed genre in the USA (and I believe the world). The new school of hip hop was a movement in hip hop music starting 1983–84 with the early records of Run–D.M.C. Before that, though, there were actual groups that started out as groups and then, depending on the success of their album(s), they might have a solo album every couple of years (while they were still part of the original group). Hip hop is great music and I can literally say it helped me to become a better person. Because of that, again, it took real guts to release music that continued to focus on the topics that people were up in arms about and it actually gave some rappers topics to discuss on their albums (Tupac’s ‘Wonder Why They Call You B****’ is a great example), especially considering rappers like Shakur were sued when people did things while “under the influence of” his music (he was sued after someone who had his tape in the tape deck of their car killed a police officer, for example). Despite the doom and gloom thatâs projected in this article, hip hop is still in a good place, and as of this year it has become the most popular music genre in the world (according to a Nielsen Music report published this year) â even surpassing rock. Rock started earlier than Hip Hop. I’m a product of old school hip hop but these days are much better. During the 1950s and 60s, many white, middle-class people left the cities to move to the suburbs. Thatâs why itâs weird basketball player Lonzo Ball, who has yet to make an impact in the NBA, can call Nas irrelevant and then make comparisons to Future or Migos. Hip Hop has never been more mainstream than it is now. The African Americans and Latino Americans that were left behind in cities (or who moved to the cities in the intervening years) encountered many challenges in their neighborhoods, as budgets were slashed and resources diverted to the wealth… Very rarely is anything uplifting ever discussed, except in the case of songs meant to uplift one's self. Despite their young age, the two produced what is considered the best hip-hop music that the world has ever seen! 1. Today we celebrate the birthday of one of the greatest hip hop artists of all time, Nasir Bin Olu Dara Jones â aka Nas, aka Nasty Nas, aka Nas Escobar. Hip hop (or hip-hop, the two can be used interchangeably) began as a culture and art movement in the Bronx,where demographics were rapidly shifting in the early 1970s. Yes, they all made bangers that were hot for about a year or two, but now the only time youâll hear them is at an OâNeilâs or Tiger Tiger. A perfect example of this is looking at how every rapper sounded after both Drake and Future and then compare that to the 90’s, where every rapper had their own distinctive sound that didn’t sound like anyone else (Tupac’s line from Hit ‘Em Up “Now it’s all about Versace, you copy my style…”, notwithstanding…). Hip hop and rap had to overcome that censorship, artists like Public Enemy, NWA and Tupac Shakur were scrutinized like no other artist had been before. [ooyala code=âVrbzJvYzE6dSG_sUqSQuc0LuFiTswviLâ player_id=â5df2ff5a35d24237905833bd032cd5d8â³ auto=âtrueâ width=â1920â³ height=â1080â³ pcode=âtwa2oyOnjiGwU8-cvdRQbrVTiR2lâ]. After both Tupac and Biggie died people no longer had the two best emcees of all-time to compare themselves to and because of that some rappers fell off, with Nas being the best example.
