    Yes

    Hip Hop has now become a geek thing. Instead of the political message from the bands of the 80s, we now have no message. Most hip hop fans cannot relate to their favourite artists and instead of having a message, its basically how many women they can bed while riding around in a Hummer smoking weed.

    Its turned into a farce of enormous proportions.

    Yes, almost entirely. I used to love hip hop and now I can't stand it. I'm tired of the rip offs of kiddie songs. It's hardly music anymore. It's just people talking about being gansters. I mean do you think run dmc was talking about guns and drugs. No, thats what they were trying to avoid. If you make a hip hop video now all you have o do is put a scantally clad woman dancing and degrade her to have a hit. Hip hop should go back to the way it used to be. For those reasons I like people like Common. He raps but not about stupid stuff.

    Yes.

    Props to Kool Keith though for carrying the torch.

    not from every rapper and singer - like Keyshia keeps it real...

    and so does Shareefa, she sings from her heart and means every word...

    Merry Xmas!
