Default Is hip hop the new dance genre?

What's up with hip hop artists these days making dance tracks. I mean, I understand that's what mainly the mainstream public listens to, because they want to be played at the clubs, but where are all the old school rappers, and r&b singers...???

If you are somehow living in the 1980s then yes. But if you are living in 2010 like I am, hip hop is a pretty old dance genre.

Yeah, if you really live in LA, you should know this by now.

No, dance genres are the new dance genres. There are just a lot of rappers emceeing club oriented pop tracks nowadays. As far as the music of hip hop goes, it's pretty much the same. Pitbull may be a rapper, but that doesn't make his music hip hop.

His beats are almost always reggaeton, crunk, and pop dance tracks. Offshoots of hip hop maybe, but the point remains that just because something features rapping doesn't make it hip hop.* Thus my point, hip hop isn't the new dance. Dance that may feature emceeing is quite popular however.

*Zach De La Rocha, for example, is a rapper. That doesn't make his music hip hop.

Well, there's rap, and then there's bubblegum-rap. I think to what you are referring to is latter of those.

You hear those dudes singing "Girl, I wanna rock yo body," with the auto-tune? Yeah, that's bubblegum rap. It ain't even man enough to be considered R&B. Straight bubblegum.

But yeah, mainstream hiphop is going downhill. That's why you gotta stick to the underground.
