    what age is too old to rap

    Now that rap has become more of an artist form with style and music, I feel you can rap at any age as long as the style and substance fits you, & the content has to be suitable for the age you are. As far as getting in the game, you have to at least be marketable. What do y'all think?

    There shouldn't be any age limit. As long as someone wants to hear your bars, it's all good... and even if nobody wants to hear you, so what? Express yourself anyway. Rap is one of the purest and rawest form of expression and it shouldn't be exclusive to young people

    There's no age limit, as far as I should be concerned an 80 year old can spit rhymes and I would be fine with that.

    No such thing. Actually, I think I'd probably buy a record by some 80 year old dude just out of morbid curiosity. What would he even rap about?

    There is no age limit to rap. People all over the world continue to enjoy hip-pop on a daily basis. Children also enjoy hip-hop music too. Therefore, there is no minimum age or maximum age for hip-pop.

    I don't think that there should be an age limit but I cant see my grandpa will ever rap, but who enjoys rap and hip-hop when he's young he cant hate it when he's older and that's apply for artists too.

    Rap is about expression. There's no age that's too old to express yourself. The only time it's too late is when you're gone. Some rappers don't get noticed till they're 30-40, and some never get noticed at all, but rap is rap.

    Exactly...

    By the way, just messing on Google when suddenly:



    It's not a joker with a latex mask either. It's really a old dude

    lol!! now that's what I'm talking about! Hugh Heffner aught to take notes to keep the flame burning. Thanks for sharing. This put's the icing on the question of what's too old or not to rap.

    For true fans of rap, there is no age limit and as long as the bars are good, there will be an audience for it. Unfortunately though, it is hard for many rappers outside of a certain age range (about 40) to break into the field and gain success because they can't relate to the main demographics, so they are perceived as too old or gimmicky if they try to rap about "young things" like making money, getting girls, etc. But those "fans" are more about the hype than the content, so we need not pay attention to them.

    you must be new to hiphop. the genre has been around for 39 years. some of mainstreams favorite artists and producers are in their 40's. if you love what you do and you can make a living doing it why stop? theres more to the music industry than just being a rapper.

    I don't know if you were referring to my post or if you misunderstood me, but I am agreeing with you and saying that talent at any age is still talent. The point I was making is that people outside of a certain age range (which I put an arbitrary line at 40) have a hard time breaking into the industry (I guess I should clarify that I mean as a singer or rapper). Let me clarify that I think this is quite sad. There are people in the business well into their forties yes, but most of them have well established fame as opposed to trying to get into the industry.

    Yeah, dudes just go into production or other areas of showbiz...
    The music is kind of boring after a while, but it's still a grampa rapping
    Sadly, all that both of my grampas ever listen to is classical music...

    It is funny that rap is the only genre of music that has some unspoken age restriction. At what age does a good singer retire? People that were singing in the 70s are still singers even if they don't make album.

    A singer will never claim to retire. If you have a message and a good style, that is the ticket. As long as you can get the fans to relate to you, there is no age limit.
