A Short Rant About Hip-Hop Music

A Short Rant About Hip-Hop Music

Listening to New Hip-Hop with Old Ears

In the hip-hop community I'm considered an old man, and being 36 years old I am not going to disagree with that statement. Hip-Hop has been and all the time will be the voice of our youth. But as time passes and the tradition continues to mature, older ears grow to be more relevant. We must always all agree that with age should come some form of wisdom, and with that knowledge the teachings learned, from our errors, must be passed on to the next generation in hopes they avoid the identical pitfalls.

After I wrote my first rhyme I was within the seventh grade. The year was 1988 (Oh GOD, I'm SO OLD!!! contraband ), N.W.A, Public Enemy, and Big Daddy Kane the place a few of the hottest artists. Back then "old of us" on the time where always complaining about how hip-hop wasn't real music, and that artists like The Isley Brothers was the only example of true music. We thought they had been crazy then and so it's not stunning that when we talk about B.I.G, Tupac, and Scarface, as being real hip-hop, we're checked out just as crazy now. But what is, or is just not, considered real shouldn't be what this article is about. What I consider to be The Double Edge Sword of Hip-Hop pertains to how stunning or ugly this highly effective type of music can be.

Hip-Hop, over time, has developed sub-classes the greatest distinction being gangster and conscience. Every describes the lifetime of the much less lucky from an analogous perspective. Whether it's N.W.A's "F... the Police" in 1988 or Lupe Fiasco's "Words I Never Stated" in 2011, hip-hop has used its affect to each identify and educate in regards to the injustice's felt within our own authorities, but content may be just as harmful as it may be educating. Over the lifetime of hip-hop clouds have developed and the shine of an inspiring media, irrespective of how crass at occasions, has turn out to be saturated with educating as an alternative about the way to "turn cocaine to crack" and the benefits of being a dope dealer.

Lyrics are repeated again and again, we enjoy repeating them as we sing alongside, paying little consideration to the truth that we a burning them in to our long run memories. Even much less consideration is paid to how this data varieties our thoughts about relationships, our each day situations, or our view on the world in general. Within the midst of "just having fun" we do not think about how the consequences of frequently telling ourselves "when you broke you ain't s... " just may finish with you basing self-worth on the dimensions of your bank account. How different would it not be if young listeners heard one thing like "minimize the chit-chatter, being broke do not matter, cause training's the key to me getting my pockets fatter."

The purpose that I am making is that hip-hop may be beautiful, uplifting, the catalyst within the choices we make in life. I know it seems dramatic, however music has been shown to not solely effect temper, but a person's perception.
