The Evolution Of Hip-Hop [1979 - 2017]

Evolution Of Rap, Best Rap Song Of Each Year. Hip-hop has arguably been the best genre of music in the past two decades. As hip-hop maintains its title, a lot has changed about the genre, such as the lyrics. Hip-hop has two phases, old school and new school each of which give off a different vibe. Old School “Hip-Hop” has music based prevalently on African American culture. Artists such as Tupac, Biggie Smalls, and Eazy-E often rap about the struggles of growing up in a racialized environment and the work they put in to get where they are today. In popular songs such as “Changes” by Tupac and “Juicy” by Biggie Smalls, the artists explain how they went from “negative to positive” as Biggie put it. Old school hip-hop is still popular today and is regarded as “classic” by many hip-hop fans. “New school” hip-hop has different types of lyrics. Rappers from today’s generation sing typically about girls, money, and cars they have. Some even sing about how they do drgs, drink alchl, and party which sets a bad example for some listeners. Some of these rappers today did not have it as hard as rappers back in the old days. Also Hip-hop artists now are racially diverse, so African American culture is not necessarily found in music today. People who grew up listening to Tupac, Biggie, Eazy-E, and so on typically do not enjoy hip-hop in today’s era. Songs written when rap was introduced were lyrically better because rappers were able to tell a story using words that rhyme and flow. Some songs are also more appealing to fans because they can relate to the struggles their favorite rappers faced. People of this generation are used to listening to new school hip-hop which is the most played genre on the radio. These same fans reject old school Hip-Hop as a part of the music genre. There are even rappers who know nothing about the most influential Hip-Hop artists. Growing up listening to Eminem has caused me to fall in love with him as an artist. He introduced me to Hip-Hop. But I noticed a change in the music industry. Artists wanted to be part of the mainstream industry and they had to change their music to fit into the mainstream category. Because of new artists in hip-hop, many lessen known artists are rarely noticed. These artists are said to be “underground.” Underground rappers usually do not make it big because they have music related to the messages embodied by old school hip-hop artists would say. Some people think old school Hip-Hop is better than new school Hip-Hop. And there are many people who prefer underground Hip-Hop to mainstream Hip-Hop.

Hip hop didn't evolve, it DEvolved. It's become sellout pop music for squares. It lacks any poetic influence whatsoever and sounds lazy and uncreative.

Personally I am a metal head and barely listen to any hip hop. But I have a huge amount of respect for hip hop for it's versatility, and ingenuity. My favorite hip hop from the small amount of I've heard is the early 90s stuff. I can enjoy some of the beats from today's stuff though.

Versace versace versace versace versace.. Wtf is that -_- what kind of rap is that
80's Beastie Boys paved the way not only for white rapper but for others as well..Some of your choices are on there more than once. There are plenty of others that could have been added in their place..Digital Underground..Mc Hammer..Heavy D..Too SHort...Dj Jazzy Jeff & The Fresh Prince...Tone Loc...Whodini...MC Lyte...Sir mix A Lot...3rd Bass...Biz Markie..Rob Base..Kid N Play...Special Ed...Kris Kross...Bell Biv DeVoe...Missy Elliott...Good grief im just a middle age white guy from Tn and I can recognize all these artists as greatness and needing a spot.. :)

Kendrick Lamar, J Cole , Chance the Rapper, Childish Gambino and Tyler the Creator are the only new ones I can separate from all the new Crap. Its like the art of being lyrical is not important anymore... just listen to me mumble to beats

I was born in 2002 and let me tell you my dad had me listening to all of the old-school hip hop. I just sit here wondering what ever happened to the 80s.
Godfrey Gondo
Basically a time line of from Real Rap to Crap then.
First part of this video great! Second part well.....
I've been listening to HipHop for the last 25 years, but don't know much of the new stuff. So I obviously enjoyed the first half of the video and started to scroll down after that to read comments. It was when J. Cole came up that I had to check who that was. Good stuff! PS: Blackout is still the best HipHop album ;)

Our people have lost control of the rap culture today....Real rap music talked about the struggle in our neighborhoods the struggle with government racist America and poverty and so much more....The enemy has saw this as a threat and has used their money to get us to change the way we speak in our music. To negatively influence our is time to take back our rap culture because unfortunately the civilized world sees all black people in America as the people in the trap culture....

Everything went to shit in the mid 2000s... Also, talking about 2013, do you seriously think some dude yelling "Versace Versace Versace" was better than Eminem's "Rap God" and several other songs by much better artists? C'mon.

The only good rappers around today are Kendrick Lamar, Eminem, Joyner Lucas, and NF

Не эволюция, а деградация.
Quality mostly declined from the mid 2000s-present, with the exception of some memorable Wayne and Kanye in the late 2000s in my opinion
