The Past Present Future of Hip Hop

Old School vs New School

Hip Hop History
Hip Hop History

Hip Hop from generation 2 generation

Which is better old school or new school?...If I had to pick between the two,that would be kind of hard because both of them bring good music.I grew up with hip hop and I consider myself a hip hop junkie because I can't go anywhere without my music.The old school was totally fun,nobody was dissing anybody.You had the beats,rhymes,the party time lyrics,and real instruments playing in the background, also the performance on stage while on tour had more energy which you don't feel or see that much anymore.With so many hip hop artists back then you didn't have so many one hit wonders either.I'm not saying that there wasn't any at all because there were.Rap was surely outta control back then.I think that the old school really brought the longevity to the rap industry especially with the unity as a group.

With the new school generation they bring a new flavor to the rap game by remixing songs together to bring that different sound,but they use everything digital and not real instruments anymore.It's not authentic and original.The beats and the rhymes don't sound as good because they do a lot of sampling from computers.The new school artists don't tour together not like they use to from the past.Now I'm not trying to diss the new school because they don't sound or do like the old school artists did,but with the new generation they do bring back some of the old school beats that makes you remember where and how far rap has come as culture over the years.It makes you believe that rap is here to stay in the long run from generation to generation.
