Over the past few years, the hip hop community has heavily complained about the content that is being promoted, especially when it comes to the radio. Many have been comparing the major differences in content matter and substance of tracks between today and the 1990’s, when it seemed as though bars were of much more importance in rap. While many have been making this argument over the last couple of years especially, this year has certainly proved to be a ground-breaking one for “real hip hop.” With rappers proving that they are here to show their creative side, as well as spit some more conscious bars, hip hop seems to be making a quick turnaround.
This week, Styles P made a tweet that seemed to be pretty eye-opening to hip hop fans, writing, “I’m just patiently waiting working hard and staying focused Because it seems like having bars is coming back in style.” Styles is very much correct about that one, as we’ve seen projects coming out left and right that contain much more substance than the typical party turn up energy, and flashy, lavish lifestyle.
With that being said, although it seems as though a lot of the newer rappers released new music, there are still some that have yet to give us a true project.
Hey conscious rappers, come out, come out, wherever you are.
