Re: HIP HOP
Like any genre of music, it will speak to some and not others.
If you are under 30 and live in the inner city, you will probably love it.
If you're like me and in my 50's who was raised comfortably in the suburbs, it's annoying.
I need a melody. Rhyming is cool and hard to do, but where's the melody? Not to mention harmony. I like steady grooves, but need something more than that, I need a really great drum part for me to take notice. Plus the lyrics are for a different generation than mine.
Trust me when you're in your 50's your kids will be listening to stuff that doesn't resonate with you in the least, and you too will be seen as closed minded lol.
