The State of Hip Hop

When I was falling in love with Hip Hop, the grungy beats and complex rhymes were intoxicating. I would get chills down my spine. I haven't felt this way for a long time. Nowadays, this simple and dancey commercial form of our beloved genre is currupting the soul of the music. No more DJ's, no more breakdancing, no more stories behind the songs. Everything seems to be formulaic and plugged into an already existing blueprint for making sales. Fortunatley everything comes full circle, and the music we grew up with and fell in love with, will eventually be back to stay!
