    Is hip-hop dead?


    0 Not allowed! Not allowed!
    I'm from a generation when hip-hop was more than just music. Hip-hop was a culture and there was a lot of different elements to it. For you to be considered a person who is involved and embraces hip-hop you have to be truly immersed into the culture and really understand it. Today the only thing that predominantly stands up from the hip-hop culture is rap music. And so for me I feel that the actual true hip-hop culture is dead. Does anybody else agree?

    No. Hip-hop culture has just become more popular and mainstream. And also (in some ways) far more intelligent.

    Nah man. Hip-hop will never die, as long as someone is making the content. There will always be listeners, the genre is basically ingrained into society at this point.

    Just look at the mainstream rappers - Their music is booming, and even though sometimes they dip into different genres, hiphop will always be their roots.

    Oversaturated? Sure. Dead? Nowhere near it. Hip-hop is going strong, and that's not going to change any time soon. Parts of it are taking a step backward, but new genres and styles within hip-hop are rising to the top, that's for sure.

    I wouldn't say it's dead. It's just in a transformation right now, it isn't like it used to be and it will probably never go back to what it was, but it's still alive. Just different. Those changes happen to all kinds of music and I don't think it's bad. There will come a time where we have another Biggie or Eminem but he's not gonna be like them, he's gonna make his own kind of music. I honestly think it's not bad that hip-hop is mainstream right now, even though I don't like most of those newer rappers, but I think hip-hop is gonna change to a better spot after the mainstream hype is over.

    I don't think its dead.. It just changed.. It evolved into the new kind of rap.. Everything's more high-tech, anyone can become an artist with all the simple tools to create beats & stuff, & it definitely is more mainstream.

    Hip-hop is dying I suppose ti will survive because though there may be many artists right now who are no good there are a few who are making some good music. It's these few great ones who breathe life into hip-hop otherwise it would all be dead and gone. That's why sub-genres like crunk didn't survive long. None of the artists who made crunk were that great so . . . it died.

    Right now? No, I think that hip-hop is perhaps one of, if not the most thriving genres. The way it seems to be expanding into more eclectic territory with subgenres like trap, rather than being strictly gangsta or party rap is really encouraging to me. I embrace how much diversity hip-hop has undertaken in the last few years.
