Modern rap = 80's Hair Metal


And for the record... Any "best MC" list that doesn't have Jean Grae at or near the top is a joke.

i must say i'm more disenchanted with hip-hop today than ever before. being from the south i am not impressed with what's considered hip-hop these days thanks to alot of the music heard on the radio today. news flash people, the down south movement has turned hip-hop into the new club music, it just replaced house music. there was a burst of creativity when the dirty south got it's turn but it's just sound alike garbage these days. having been alot of places and lived in socal and virginia i am really aching for some other region to take hold. but that's really why hip-hop is so phony these days. how is it that one region is supposedly making the hot sounds and every one else gets ignored.

The "Southern sound" hasn't changed much, if any, over time. Cash Money is just the modern version of 2Live Crew.

You were on track for the first half, then you lost your mind. Rap hasn't changed. You have to understand that that new club music you're referin' to is three separate genres of music that's just grouped in with rap. Being "snap music," "crunk music," and "hustler music." Each with it's own taste of "club hop" That you can pretty much break down into three basic elements. In "snap music" you have the repeating chorus, simple beats and hyped flows(i.e. Dem Franchise Boyz, Lean Wit' It). In "crunk music" there's more lyrics and a more complicated beat but that same constant hype(i.e. Bubba Sparxx ft. Ying Yang Twins, Ms. New Booty). Then in "huster music" there's less hype in the flow, a more complex beat and rhythmic, well structured beats(i.e. Rick Ross, Everyday I'm Hustlin').

thanks for explaining, it still all sounds the same to me. one thing i've learned since being away is every time i've returned home people in the south never let anything die, witness the hundreds of bustops, for those who don't know it's a line dance also called the electric slide. the endless sound alike bass songs that come out of florida, and i could go on and on. so i guess this is what the rest of the country has to put up with. can anyone say "knuck if you buck"
