Sittin in a corner and not lettin the concerns of you and your community and agenda be heard by President elect with all three branches of government is not a better option.
Eye only fuck with certain artists from that era
Kool g rap
The immortal God emcees
You can miss me with all that hippity hop don't stop bang bang boogie bullshit..that ish is trash..Everything from that era ain't golden and older heads need to stop acting like music from that era isn't above being criticized..We don't have to bump it because u think we should
Ain't nobody trying to listen to the rapping duke...have all that dust clogging up my ears
Thats not even old school Hip Hop
You can't cross compare old school rap to golden age R&B and soul. There is not 1 rapper that had a classic era like Stevie (seen him live). It's hard to think any rapper could have the same impact on music as BB King (seen him live RIP). And that is the issue. What is thought of as "old school rap" as far as the 80s and some (not all of the early 90s) is the equivalent of listen to negro spirituals from the late 1800s.
Before Chuck Berry and Muddy Waters and Stevie and BB and Marvin there was nearly 80 to 100 years of slave and then post slave music. That music was the blueprint but most of it didn't age well and was in the infant stages of black music in America. No offense but i don't jam much 80s rap and some 90's rap because the shit did not age well.
At the same time you can catch me bumping Tribes 2nd and 3rd album stored in my cars memory bank. You can catch me also bumping it was written or illmatic as well from time to time. Same with other 90's golden age shit that did age well. But what old heads don't want to always admit is there is tons of old shit that doesn't age well. The other thing old hip hop heads can't admit is when it comes to the best R&B or rock legends musically they have tons more talent then the most talented rappers hands down. Stevie wonder live in concert at his old age is miles better than the Jay Z or Nas show i went to and i loved those rappers live shows. Hip hop is far from easy but there is a reason why other genres respect the gods of their era and in hip hop things change and old things don't always age well.
I don't understand why you guys are saying that old school Hip Hop didn't age well. It aged just as well as the R&B from that era. Grandmaster Flash, Sugarhill Gang (they only had 3 good songs), Kurtis Blow I'm talking the REAL old school. I'll give you a playlist;

^^^^ Thats what I mean by "Old School Hip Hop". I'm not talking about Rakim, KRS, Illmatic or A Tribe Called Quest.
Old School refers to anything before 1986. And if you don't believe me there's a website called oldschoolhiphop.com that I'm a member of and that's their definition; anything before 1986.
