WHERE IS HIP/HOP GOING THESE DAYS


WE TAKING IT BACK TO THE BEGINNING OF HIP HOP WHERE KOOL-HERC AND GRAND-MASTER FLASH WAS DOING THERE ISH, THEN WE HAD KRS-ONE RUN DMC AND LLCOOLJ, BUSY-BEE AND KOOL-MOE-DEE. FAST FORWARD SOME YEARS AFTER, JAY-Z, D.M.X THE LIST CAN GO ON. I'M LISTENING TO WHAT CURRENT RAPPERS ARE CREATING SUCH AS LUPE FIASCO, BLACK EYE PEAS, JIM JONES "CAPO" BEAUTIFUL DAY AND THE SOUND IS POP. THE DRUMS IS WHAT CIPHER RAP FROM POP. POP HAS MORE OF A SYTH SOUNDS AND STEADY DRUMS SOUND, (IF YOUR READING THIS AND DISAGREE PLEASE COMMENT:) ) NOW IS THIS AN EVOLVE OF HIP/HOP TO HIP/POP OR IS THE ADAPTION MERELY FOR MUSIC SALES. I KNOW THE CATEGORIES WILL EXPAND IN TIME WHO KNOWS: HIP/POP, HIP/ROCK MUSIC IS BECOME MORE MIXED IN WITH OTHER STYLES AND UNFAMILIAR SOUNDS. IN PHILOSOPHY YOU EITHER ADAPT OR DIE, IS THAT WHAT MUSICIAN ARE DOING OR DO YOU THINK IT'S A FAZE???

Very good question you raise....Is hophop's new direction forced by record labels or is it evolving creativity? who knows but what i do know is that music now is more hotter than ever! and all genres are getting closer and closer together which in turn is bringing people from different cultures together :)
