Well, it really isnt. But, the really sucky hip-hop deserves to be. like those...posers...and the people that only rap about how bad their lives were...WAAH.

No. Classic Hip-Hop will live forever.

I can't stand the rap that's about how hard life is, and how they live in the ghetto all while rapping in $500,000 worth of 'bling'.

It's dead, alright. In the 1980's, it was something completely different and inventive in a world of bubblegum pop and sludge metal. In the 1990's, as grunge/alternative music hit airwaves, rap had an edge with "gangsta" rap of people such as Tupac and Biggie. In 2001 to be exact, rap, ironically, shifted from lyrics of urban life and the poor to terrible music about being rich and having "bitches" and "bling". I am starting to get tired of the word "shizzle m'nizzle" or "right thurr". I don't even know what the hell "shizzle m'nizzle" means.

No not at all. If you have to ask if a genre of music is dead, then more than likely it's not. christ.

Dweed is so obviously racist.

hip-hop's a joke. how can something that artifical be considered a living, breathing subculture? give me someone who raps with passion. no more of this grandeur crap.
15 yrs ago, 11 mos ago - Thursday 6/3/04 - 6:35:40 PM EST (GMT-5)
How about 2pac. He rapped with passion.
15 yrs ago, 11 mos ago - Thursday 6/3/04 - 6:36:22 PM EST (GMT-5)
and he's dead.
15 yrs ago, 11 mos ago - Thursday 6/3/04 - 6:36:58 PM EST (GMT-5)
Dweed, gangsta rap started in the 80's and so did the bitches/hos/drugs/pimps type of it. Listen to NWA or Ice T. It was around long before Tupac and Biggie.

But no, hip hop is not dead. As a style it's only gaining ground.

more than half of those i would consider rappers, not hip-hoppers. BTW, that wasnt meant to eb inflammatory or anti-rap, i love a good rapper, but i've come to associate hip-hop with that crap that gets pumped out of radio's and music television stations.

Hip-hop is an all-inclusive term that includes the lifestyle (dress, slang) as well as the forms of expression that go with it (djing, graffiti, b-boying, freestyling, rapping).

Most people make the reverse of the association that you do. I've heard "rapper" used as a derogatory term by hip-hop fans many times, especially when referring to someone like Nelly, 50 Cent, etc. Hip-hop usually implies a more purist form.

Rap can't survive without hip-hop.

unfourtanitly not
15 yrs ago, 11 mos ago - Friday 6/4/04 - 6:04:27 PM EST (GMT-5)
Probably not, no.
15 yrs ago, 11 mos ago - Saturday 6/5/04 - 12:31:33 AM EST (GMT-5)
I wouldn't say it's dead, I'd say it sucks.
15 yrs ago, 11 mos ago - Saturday 6/5/04 - 12:42:33 AM EST (GMT-5)
No, hip hop will outlive rock and roll.
15 yrs ago, 11 mos ago - Saturday 6/5/04 - 2:50:36 AM EST (GMT-5)
Is hip hop not a "sub genre" of rock roll.Saying hip hop will outlive rock and roll is almost like saying heavy meatal will outlive rock and roll.
15 yrs ago, 11 mos ago - Tuesday 6/8/04 - 12:17:05 AM EST (GMT-5)
I think hip hop is closer to pop than rock. Ghetto pop.

I am not racist. I like some rap, like Outkast and some Eminem songs. But rap in general, in a whole, is the polar opposite of what it was in the 1990's. I apologize if I offended anybody.

I hope so.
