A Conversation About Hip-Hop

thefader

The Fader just posted an interesting, yet not to long, conversation between The Faders deputy editor How To An Ex Boyfriend To Want You Back When You Live Together Eric Ducker and Eskay of Nah Right, discussing the lack of good hip-hop albums. I feel like there’s always talk of “the current state of hip-hop”, but I found this interesting because it seems like there is just a bunch of people, labels and rappers, that don’t really know what to do because of what’s happening in the music industry… I don’t really have my hopes up for any good hip-hop albums to drop anytime soon and it’s interesting how my music taste is way more electronic and rock than it is hip-hop lately…

Check out the conversation here.

    I’d have to disagree with ‘I don’t really have my hopes up for any good hip-hop albums to drop anytime soon’…. there are dope joints dropping still, you just need to turn off MTV and dig deeper 😉

    jake one dropped a while ago, boot camp keeps putting out ill shit, the Shawn Jackson album is fiyer and those are just a couple of sudden examples..

  2. Who needs new hip-hop when you’ve already got “Illmatic,” “Ready To Die,” “Enter The Wu-Tang,” “The Chronic,” “Straight Outta Compton,” “It Takes A Nation of Millions…,” “No Need For Alarm,” “Funcrusher Plus,” “Doomsday,” etc.? You don’t hear that many people complaining about a dearth of new classical music or new jazz. (Well, at least I don’t.) Every genre has its golden era, and I for one think hip-hop’s has passed.

    That said, I’m always down for a new Doom release.

    I also disagree with ‘I don’t really have my hopes up for any good hip-hop albums to drop anytime soon’. Lupe Fiasco is due to release L.U.P.End this year, and if his previous work is anything to go by than this album should be a masterpiece!

    My statement about not being excited for any new albums was a personal one… Not saying I didn’t think anything good is out there, just that I’m not personally excited…
