This Timeline shows how Hip-Hop has changed from 1979 up to 2017. Which Hip-Hop era do you choose?

Hip-hop has arguably been the best 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 college every single of which give off a distinct vibe.

Old College “Hip-Hop” has music based prevalently on African American culture. Artists such as Tupac, Biggie Smalls, and Eazy-E typically rap about the struggles of developing up in a racialized atmosphere and the function they put in to get exactly where they are these days.

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

Old school hip-hop is still popular today and is regarded as “classic” by a lot of hip-hop fans.

“New school” hip-hop has various varieties of lyrics. Rappers from today’s generation sing usually about girls, money, and cars they have. Some even sing about how they do drgs, drink alchl, and party which sets a poor instance for some listeners. Some of these rappers right now 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 found in music nowadays.

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

Some songs are also much more attractive to fans because they can relate to the struggles their favorite rappers faced.

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

Expanding up listening to Eminem has triggered me to fall in really like with him as an artist. He introduced me to Hip-Hop. But I noticed a alter in the music business. Artists wanted to be component of the mainstream market and they had to adjust their music to match into the mainstream category.

Due to the fact of new artists in hip-hop, a lot of lessen known artists are hardly ever noticed. These artists are stated to be “underground.” Underground rappers usually do not make it massive simply because they have music related to the messages embodied by old college hip-hop artists would say.

Some folks think old school Hip-Hop is much better than new college Hip-Hop. And there are several folks who favor underground Hip-Hop to mainstream Hip-Hop. What do you think?

I immediatly loaded up my iphone with every single mix tape track that I could uncover of Kid Cudi’s. This guy is pure fire, and is bringing back what I like to contact real hip hop.

  2. hip-hop is dead – lil uzi vert, lil pump, lil yatchy, lil peep, xxxtentacion, ski mask, playboi carti, Kodak black, famous dex, tekashi 69 they’re all trash. hip-hop is embarrassing now.

  3. cronopiocortazar

    in this list is missing the most important of all rappers: VANILLA ICE. Ice ice baby…yeah…ice ice baby yeah yeah




  5. This video makes me sad. It’s like these "rappers" are the human embodiement of Beats headphones. I guess that makes Aesop Rock, Busdriver, Del, Doom, and the other real artists of this generation the… HD600s?

  6. Everything up to 2000 was hip hop everything past that is SHIT fucken pop hop shoot all those new school rappers bar j cole

  7. So… Bay Area artists because you lost me from 1995-2010 I mean “Tell Me When To Go” was kinda big and if you gonna put something popish where was “U Can’t Touch This”, “ Life Is Too Short”, “The Humpty Dance”, “‘93 Till Infinity”………oh yeah, and “Baby Got Back” but ok

  8. A great era. Sad that it sort of died down but during its peak time, it produced great fun music that was also "dance" music in style, like oldschool bboying.

  9. i dont think hip hop today should be the same genre as old school hip hop. if anything old school hip-hop should be called hip-hop and what it is now adays should be like a subgenre of that. otherwise we should call the blues old school rock and roll.
