Subject: What will happen to Hip Hop music?

Written By: Donnie Darko on 02/01/06 at 12:42 pm

I think today, and since 1997 and especially since 2001/'02 we have been in a "glam rap" stage, that is a period where the music becomes about partying and mischief, quite similar to the hair metal of the late '80s actually in that sense.

By 2011-'12, hip hop will enter a short "rebirth" stage, where alternative/underground hip hop will come into the mainstream.  However, it will prove to be boring music, and will become a secondary taste by 2015 or so.  Hip hop will be in this state until the early 2030s, when it will become like Jazz or Rock and Roll, a passed form of music with some adherents.
