There has been some discussion as to what real hip-hop is lately. Presently, it seems like hip-hop and rap are drastically different than the hip-hop and rap of twenty years ago. So, what is real hip-hop? Which is better?
Some of today's hip-hop is very similar to pop music. And on the other hand, many other rappers are staying true to the old school nature of rap. So I want to know what you think about the state of hip-hop today. Do you think that hip-hop today is better or worse than what it was in the past? Which artists are the best example of what you believe hip-hop to be?
