Re: Is Hip Hop Dead?
Hiphop has been kept alive artificially since about '93
and it's been clinically dead since then...

Re: Is Hip Hop Dead?
As an emcee, I can tell you for sure that it isn't dead. Commercially, yes it is, but the movement that was the underground that produced some of the best acts music has ever seen. From your buck 65, to your amazingly weird talents from the US, like your Dose One. In the early '0's we had this world of independently produced and packaged music coming from outside of the world of mainstream that looked like it could any way. It eventually sometime in the last five to several years began to evolve into something that barely resembled hip hop at all. Speaking of the underground and being a performer for the last 15 years or so, the newer living version of that world is now something that looks a bit like experimental poetry, and the noise movement. This is okay, because music evolves, and with that evolution comes new genres and listeners.
But in all intents and purposes, yes what we remember of 'HIP HOP' has vanished rightly from the world. Does it still permit some lonesome survivors? Yes of course. There are some that refuse to stop with the outdated kick snare formula that made it popular in the last 20 to 30 years. But those rogue elements are looked at as simply behind the times. All of this just means that, just because the movement is dead, it by no means singnifies that new movements won't and can't take their place. And they have. It's not sad. It is just new and interesting. Let it go, I say, and that's coming from the perspective of an emcee that loved the tradition and performed this style for many years. It's all good though.

Re: Is Hip Hop Dead?
Yes hip hop is dead, as is all music.

Dilla's death was the end of hip hop.

He was way ahead of his time. No one will catch him.

Music has become inc., even the underground shit.

All of it.

Electronic music in general has become a shadow of its former self.

Everyone sounds the same despite them all trying to be different.

Re: Is Hip Hop Dead?
cold Anyone claiming Hip-Hop is dead or that it should be needs to step back and realize Hip-Hop is not rap. Further more i'm sure the ones rejoicing its theoretical demise never have seen a live MC speak the truth to crowd. I will also go so far to say that the people wanting it to fall of the face of this planet don't even know that KNOWLEDGE REIGNS SUPREME in HIP-HOP and the ONE WHOLE WORLD. rap



choler HIP HOP IS NOT A PROBLEM.. DIVIDED AND CONQUERED ARE WE. WAIT FOR THE DOOM YOU THINK YOU WANT! HOWEVER I URGE YOU TO PUT YOUR THOUGHTS TOWARDS PEACE,LOVE, AND UNITY. boss

Re: Is Hip Hop Dead?
Wikipedia defines hip hop like this:
Hip hop music, also called hip-hop,[1][2] rap music[2][3][4] or hip-hop music,[2][5] is a music genre consisting of a stylized rhythmic music that commonly accompanies rapping, a rhythmic and rhyming speech that is chanted.[2] It developed as part of hip hop culture, a subculture defined by four key stylistic elements: MCing/rapping, DJing/scratching, break dancing, and graffiti writing.[6][7][8] Other elements include sampling (or synthesis), and beatboxing.

Good citizens defines hip hop like this:
A bunch of bums whining people, dressing like zombies, talking like dogs, consuming all kind of drugs, drinking like there's no tomorrow, listening to an annoying noise that sounds like two skeletons dancing on a metal plate, making "graffiti" in good people's walls without permission and always waiting for "the first of the month" when the paycheck comes in. And even so, they call it "culture".

there's pop-hop, shallow music for clubs and the radio, then there's real RAP, rhythm and poetry. If you say rap is dead or lame, you've judged without experiencing which is stupid and puerile.

Re: Is Hip Hop Dead?
Hope so, hip hop is trash these days. all they talk about is drugs, sex, and money. It's just ghetto. However few rappers that talk about positivity and real world issues, and moving on, remain, such as K'naan.
