    Most shit before 00's. I still like 90's shit and some 80's shit but it still sounds dated. 00's might be to other people, but I'm nostalgic about that shit cause that's when I fully got into hip hop

    None really. I was a lil kid in the early 80s. Sometime they play like "planet rock" in the car. Takes me back love that song and other oldies from the entire 80s. Probably cause i hear them so seldom they always sound fresh. I wouldnt wanna own those songs but to hear them every now and then is cool.

    To me 1992 was they year before we went from the old school flow (Rakim, early Tribe, De La Sol,etc) to new school sound. Production changed up and became more advanced too.

    Seem like they was in the hood like bootleg kicks cheap and mass produced so niggas was rocking with it then muthafuckas woke up.
    Bitch shut your mouth before I fuck it

    I'm still a rap fan, microphone fiend
    An insider like Russell Crowe, behind the scenes
    You can be the hottest MC, literally leave the mic smoking
    No marketing and promotion
    No 106 & Park, no TRL
    Don't kill the messenger homey but don't expect to sell
    Viacom own MTV, VH1
    BET, five labels until BMG
    Merged with Sony, EMI, Universal and WEA
    Only four labels in the music industry bruh
    All radio controlled by two companies
    Just two rap magazines, read between the lines
    Hip-hop used to be the expression of struggle with rhymes
    Corporate monopolized, only certain shit shines
    Only way to get radio and video and blow
    They control what you say, and the images you show
    CNN owned by AOL, own Time Warner
    Trickle down effect of the New World Order
    And you wonder why "Van Gogh" was killed
    Same reason Dead Prez lost they deal, get real
    I spit for the cabbage, grind with a mission
    And put Capitol Records in missionary positions
    Used to love H.E.R. like Common, but then you get signed
    (Behind the Music) now I just fuck the music from behind

    Magazine writers misprint you, take words out of context
    And got the nerve to wonder why I'm vexed
    When I read the publication
    I was like "Damn, was we in the same conversation?"
    This for the rap conniseurs, magazine critics
    Backpackers, rap stars with bullshit gimmicks
    Fans, even the "Stans," the groupies and label executives
    With corporate cards trickin my budget on coochie
    Video chicks sucking dick between takes
    Hoping to get saved, and thanks for the ass shake
    Like Dave Chappelle in "Half Baked," need a backyotomy
    And some of these thugs is into sodomy
    Large print giveth, fine print taketh away
    Your favorite rapper ain't recoup label take it away
    Have a nigga tempted to take an AK, goin postal
    Rap made me loco, hustle bicoastal
    (Why?) Because the West monopolize
    Same ol' niggas tellin the same ol' lies
    L.A. radio, quick to suck out of town dick
    South support they own create international hits
    Out of regional records, East coast create the buzz
    Music capitol of the world, thought it wasn't when it was
    And somehow manage to screw us
    Call West coast gangster rap whack, then sold it back to us...

    Groups like Run DMC, Kid N Play, Digital Underground...

    Also all the shit that was gimmicky and trendy seems old now, like Fabolous in the early 2000's and his style of dress, anybody rapping about throwbacks, crystal, Ja Rule, Chingy, Nelly...

    Jermaine Dupri is also notorious for making dated sounding music from the second he puts it out

    I hate threads like this. How come people are always trying to retire and shelve rap music all the time? You don't ever hear anybody talk about The Beattles sounding dated. Hell you have white artists trying to recreate that old sound and shit. You want to say the hippity hop shit is dated, but I'll put any of them old school cats up against some of these current stars! How can something sound dated yet a lot of these rappers steal beats and lyrics from the older shit?

    I along with many others, think the Beatles first 2 years of music making (about 15 albums and 20+ million records sold) sound dated compared to the wrest of their collection...

    Maybe you just dont have an eclectic enough understanding of music to realize this isn't a hip-hop exclusive question but this does happen to be a hip hop forum so why would we talk about what sounds dated in another genre?

    You're just sounding butt hurt bro
