We talkin bout Rap music doe not Jazz a whateva that is
It would be ridiculous for a Hip Hop fan to NOT relate 808s and hi-hats to Southern Hip Hop
Nigga what? High hat is high hat regardless of genre. It's the same sound
I only judge Hip Hop as Nice or Whack. The time period doesn't matter. Is it unfortunate that the most popular MC's of today can't hold a candle to the MC's that came before them? Yes but such is life.
Ok, but what are the factors for determining "nice or wack"
cuz a lot of times yall base it on rapper A not sounding like rapper B (as you did w/ your question)
every human being is different & in turn every artist is (or should be), so one of the problems I see is yall expect artist to sound a certain way instead of accepting how they sound (wether you like it or not)
there are no rules to making music
