Best Hip Hop Songs Of All Time - Hip Hop Classics
It's time I made a hub filled with the top Hip Hop songs of all time. Period. Things are finally starting to look up in the rap game. New, young artists are realizing that lyrical ability is what really matters, not the beat, not voice changing, not auto-tune, real rap. So, with all this new talent appearing, I thought it would be appropriate to make a list of the best Hip Hop songs ever. We can NEVER forget the classics. I don't care what anyone says. These classic, musical masterpieces are Hip Hop's bread and butter. Without them, how are we supposed to make toast? Stay tuned and I will show you classics from rap legends such as B.I.G, The Luniz, Ice Cube, Big Daddy Kane and much more.
The Problem With Hip Hop Today (Just had to get this off my chest)
The problem with Hip Hop today is that there is too much money to be made from it. Most labels and producers don't care about lyrical talent anymore, they just want something that will sell. And if that means more dancing and less truth, then they'll do it. Although I must admit, I do like the Duggy. But that's besides the point. I also see a lot of very skilled rappers toning down their abilities in order to reach the masses. It's just wrong. Hip Hop is turning into Shit Hop at an alarming rate. Clowns are being called rappers (Soulja Boy). I remember when it was an honor to be a rapper, to be able to speak your mind in poetic form. Everyone looked up to those select few who were gifted with the ability to move people with there words. Now it's like everyone's doing it. I'm not saying that there aren't any talented artists left, I'm just saying that there are more lamers than flamers, more hooks than verses, more beats than words, more gimmicks than talent. Let's hope this is just a phase. Real Talk
Hip Hop: Who Will Save Her?
Fortunately, there are still talented artists out there that are willing to come to her rescue. A lot of new artists are starting to surface with actual talent and even better, there starting to change the rap game. It's like a breath of fresh air.
