Since Rick Ross made Bmf it seems like no one really wants to be themselves everyone is always talking about who they feel like etc. We must draw the line at some point this trend is lame. We got Tony Montana,Charlie Sheen,Bill Bellemy, Donald Trump the list goes on i dont wanna waste no more time on this subject so i will end by saying thanks but no thanks i will be passing up on all music named after someone from now on.
From the birth of hip hop the most lyrical emcees have always been known to be born on the East coast. The West coast was more known for gangsta music & party music. They havent been on top since 2pac but managed to survive the south’s reign on top as well. In the last 10 years it seems that things have changed drastically. The West has stepped their game up to another level & have been producing a lot of lyrical rappers these days such as Kendrick Lamar, Crooked I, Dom Kennedy, Fashawn to name a few. When we look at the East now its still all bout being Fresh dressed, how much drugs you deal & how gangsta you are.These days everyone is pretty much saying & doing the same thing that’s already been done.
Where are all the new lyricists at? Outside of Fabolous & vets like Raekwon & Jadakiss nobody new is delivering consistently besides Vado & A Mafia. Now dont get me wrong there are a few other nice East caost rappers like Joe Buddens & Joel Ortiz but there not NEW. How did we go from the most creative Coast in hip hop to just being lost in the past & complaining that hip hop is dead. During that time the south & west & Mid West have got more lyrical changed their formula and it seems to be working. In my opinion the west will rise to the top again before the East because they are putting a variety of music out, not the same product with a different face & the unity is strong in all coasts but the East. The East coast has a lot a fake love one minute they cool the next there not.
The East has so many artists but a lot of them never actually drop albums & the labels are not promoting them as much. Some prime examples Red Cafe & Jae Millz in the past they both have had so many singles with videos & still no album. In closing Step ya game up East coast rappers because you’re not the only one’s with lyrical content these days.
I been in love with Hip Hop growing up from a young age back in the early 1990’s late 80’s. From the beginning it was about rebelling and standing out for what you prime examples Public Enemy spoke on confrontational topics & N.W.A rocked the black fitted and shades. The Hip Hop community always played a major role in the fashion market from Roc-A-Fella to Fabolous making the world go throwback jersey crazy. Over the years it seems a lot of this creativity has gone away. Instead of trying to be the first YOU everyone is trying to be the next man taking their style An trying too perfect it. At one point Max B was the only rapper that could also sing then Drake came mastered that now everyone trying to rap & sing an out do him, instead of making their own lane. It’s sad because the record labels are scared to put out good music so they look at who is hot an tell the artist to be them. Now Hip Hop went from gangsta to tight jeans an weirdos. The crowd they trying to appeal to is the weirdos prime examples Nikki Minaj with her alter egos an wigs & Wiz Khalifa putting blonde spot in his hair. Those are just a few I could keep going but I wont. I just wanna know where are individuals in the game these days? No creativity don’t get me wrong right now there is a lot of good music out but I don’t like this following what the next man does. We went from originality to just trends. Lex Luger was a big trend for a moment everyone wanted his beats because Rick Ross an Waka Flocka made them hot. There are a lot of producers out go find one and get your own sound that’s the best bet. At the end of the day this music won’t last long if we got a bunch of followers In conclusion remember that trends come & go.
Back in early 2000 Oh Boyee (Founder) & Shawn Evans (Co Founder) came up with the creation of M.O.E.T Entertainment .
