When fans of hip-hop mention the music's quality and content, they all can admit that it has made a drastic change over the decades. As social media continue to drive most of the independence for many rappers, it helps them maintain their music style without limitation from record labels. This new way of presenting music can leave many rappers clueless about the fundamentals of real hip-hop music. With many rappers sounding identical within the new generation of hip-hop, you can still sit back and point out some of the powerful sounds and techniques used in the Golden Era.
As times pass and hip-hop changes, many artists maintain the sound of real lyrical, poetic, and storytelling lyrics, which leave the audience and listeners with a positive message and an outlook on life. Mainstream media and radio often hide these caliber type artists, and it's our job as fans to make sure their talents and skills don't go unnoticed.
