Old School Rap Vs. New School / Old School Hip-Hop Vs. New College Hip-Hop / Old School Vs. New College

Hip-hop has arguably been the ideal genre of music in the past two decades. As hip-hop maintains its title, a lot has changed about the genre, such as the lyrics. Hip-hop has two phases, old college and new school each and every of which give off a distinct vibe.

Old College “Hip-Hop” has music primarily based prevalently on African American culture. Artists such as Tupac, Biggie Smalls, and Eazy-E frequently rap about the struggles of increasing up in a racialized environment and the work they place in to get exactly where they are right now.

In well-liked songs such as “Changes” by Tupac and “Juicy” by Biggie Smalls, the artists explain how they went from “negative to positive” as Biggie place it.

Old college hip-hop is nevertheless popular nowadays and is regarded as “classic” by a lot of hip-hop fans.

“New school” hip-hop has distinct varieties of lyrics. Rappers from today’s generation sing typically about girls, funds, and automobiles they have. Some even sing about how they do drgs, drink alchl, and party which sets a undesirable instance for some listeners. Some of these rappers nowadays did not have it as hard as rappers back in the old days. Also Hip-hop artists now are racially diverse, so African American culture is not necessarily discovered in music nowadays.

Folks who grew up listening to Tupac, Biggie, Eazy-E, and so on generally do not get pleasure from hip-hop in today’s era. Songs written when rap was introduced were lyrically greater because rappers were able to inform a story utilizing words that rhyme and flow.

Some songs are also a lot more appealing to fans simply because they can relate to the struggles their favorite rappers faced.

Individuals of this generation are utilised to listening to new school hip-hop which is the most played genre on the radio. These same fans reject old college Hip-Hop as a part of the music genre. There are even rappers who know practically nothing about the most influential Hip-Hop artists.

Expanding up listening to Eminem has caused me to fall in enjoy with him as an artist. He introduced me to Hip-Hop. But I noticed a change in the music industry. Artists wanted to be element of the mainstream industry and they had to alter their music to match into the mainstream category.

Since of new artists in hip-hop, several lessen known artists are hardly ever noticed. These artists are said to be “underground.” Underground rappers usually do not make it large due to the fact they have music connected to the messages embodied by old school hip-hop artists would say.

Some folks think old school Hip-Hop is better than new college Hip-Hop. And there are a lot of men and women who favor underground Hip-Hop to mainstream Hip-Hop. What do you feel?

    Where is old good hip-hop? What’s going on? American hip hop has changed over this time… Old School forever

  3. if you put actuall rap songs from today like logic, kendrick, j cole, joyner lucas, and tech n9ne, it wouldnt seem as bad. you’re putting mumble rap and trap music against some of the most recognizable rap songs of all time. obviously its gonna seem like rap is complete garbage now.

    Bad thing is…. Kids of this generation will tell their future kids that Young Thug, 6ix9ine, Fetty Wap, Migos is old school….smh

    No flow. Bad lyrics, and the same beat over and over and over again with maybe a little melody. Nothing compared to the old school beats and flows. There are still great underground rappers out there. They just don’t get played on the radio like this other disposable, and meaningless bullshit. You can only party so much before it starts wearing you down

    Alot haters here :D. Old school have alot teribble songs too. New school have good songs too. My god. I like songs from Tupac to Lil Pump and i dont’t hate new school or old school. I like some songs from old school more than new school but i like some new school songs more than old school. It is that hard to not hate old school and new school.

    Sorry for my teribble english :{

  7. The idea itself of comparing 90’s rap to this new shit is ridiculous! And btw you are not comparing old school rap to new school rap – you’re comparing RAP to something else 😀

    Like classic better but if ur gonna compare the 2 at least take popular songs from both generations it looks kind of old school biased. Most of the new school songs arent popular and are almost all within the past 2 years which isent all new is.
