New Age Hip Hop...Love it or hate it?

Some say Hiphop has died. Is this so or has hiphop just adapted to a ever-changing society? While hardcore listeners base hiphop on the culture of originality, lyrics and beats others like anything that satisfies their ears and makes them feel good, with things they can relate to. So as a up and coming rap artist you are now faced with the struggling decision on which of those markets to satisfy. If you decide to target both then you have critics debating whether you are killing hiphop or not.You know that you have the rap skills and creativity but you you want to make money while doing it. I say f*** the critics and do you. Do what you feel good with. As long as music will be alive, hiphop will too and I think we could call this evolution...New Age Hiphop!
