With Major Music Outlets Like MTV & The MOG Music Network running feature stories on the dimise of real Hip-Hop for lack of a better term.. we try and explore how this happened.
Here is a piece from a recent Mog article... In the last few of years, it's become passé to make aggressive street music. Gone are the days when all you needed to make it in hip-hop was a stock thug persona and a song about how gangsta you are. 2010 marks the culmination of a slow, methodical softening of hip-hop by the infiltration of R&B, techno, and indie rock. Baggy jeans and oversized hoodies have been replaced with skinny jeans and cardigan sweaters. The era we came to know and love is over. Hip-hop is supposed to make people uncomfortable, and it's always had an air of anti-authoritarianism embedded in the culture. So how exactly did we go from "Wu-Tang Clan Aint Nothin' To Fuck With" to Drake's cotton-soft "Find Your Love"? Rap music needs the anger back; it needs the unpredictability back" We feel it needs it's insight back.
New York Based Indie Label "Wane Enterprises" Tried to Warn us back in 2009, With The Track "That Aint Hip-Hop From Wane Recording Artist "Fam-Illy" feating "Bruse Wane" but with a saturated market full of payola seeking gate keepers it fell on deaf ears.. it's seems we may be at the beginning of a serious fan and cultural backlash if Hip-Hop does not change it's tune.
