of course. especially, ESPECIALLY, the underground heads. they think any mainstream artist not named nas, lupe, or talib are wack, and think that if you make a song that isnt "socially conscious" is bullshit. **** that.
i dont remember the last time i changed my mind on something hip-hop related, but i used to be one of the underground heads that i now despise. i used to be closed-minded and arrogant because i thought i knew everything, but now i know that theres always someone better than you. i became more open minded to music in general, not just rap, ive gotten into rock more, some techno, soul, etc. etc. and i now that i look back on it, i feel stupid for bashing mainstream artists because i realized that i made myself look like a dick. so yes, i think we should be more willing to change our minds, because for me, if i didnt open my mind up to more music, i probably wouldve gotten bored with this rap ****
