Subject: Could Kendrick Lamar revive hip-hop back to its glory days?

Written By: mqg96 on 04/19/17 at 8:23 pm

With his latest song DNA, he totally KILLED IT and he just had an HUMBLE song that just came out a few weeks ago. This is what we call REAL hip hop, not all the trap rap crap we've been tired of hearing dominate the mainstream over the last several years. If the majority of hip hop songs over the next several months start sounding similar to this, then say goodbye to trap rap soon  :)

We also have J Cole who's had a couple of good songs lately, but I wish he was a lot more popular.

I do think that "Humble" is a good song. I appreciate what Kendrick is doing and his music but I don't see any inclination that because of him....Hip-Hop/Rap will enter another "Golden Age". Kendrick Lamar is just one rapper.....you need more rappers with good to great songs in order to change the rap industry currently.

He's definitely a lot more popular than ever before. I think he'll have a lot of late 2010s impact. Talent always wins!  8)

I like Humble. Just listened to DNA now. 2017 keeps delivering.

Marquis, I just want to know if you're this YouTuber I saw comment on the Kendrick Lamar video "DNA".

Are you "TWO96"? Falcons profile pic, talking about how you hate mumble rap and talking about the topic of this thread. Also, the "96" at the end of the username.

I'm like 99% sure it's you ;D.

He probably could. I have heard of humble, and it's awesome and catchy at the same time. I really hope trap declines soon. It's been overplayed too much, and most of the songs are bland.

Depends on which glory days of hip-hop you're talking about. Are you talking more about the Golden Age of Hip-Hop(roughly 1984-1996/7), or the late 90s/early 2000s which weren't the golden age but still had some good stuff?

Well if we're comparing this current trap rap era to any of those eras of hip-hop then ALL of it would be considered as its "glory days". Even 2009-2011 hip hop too.

Most hip hop songs from the late 90's through early 2010's (before trap became dominant in the mainstream). Which includes the snap/crunk rap era as well because I enjoyed it as a kid.

Drake, DJ Khaled, Young Jeezy, Ludacris, OutKast, Black Eyed Peas, 50 Cent, Eminem, Rihanna, Kendrick Lamar, Wiz Khalifa, Beyonce, Schoolboy Q, T.I., Usher, Rick Ross, T Pain, Soulja Boy, Flo Rida, B.o.B. Gucci Mane, 2 Chainz, etc. are many of my favorites.

Even Late 2005-2008 rap(the "snap" years)? That's considered the "dark age" by many; in fact, those years were what inspired Nas to write his Hip Hop Is Dead album, lol.

Good point. But in all honesty I'd take the crappy 2005-2008 era over the modern era of rap any day of the week. I agree though that rap was at its best during the 80's/90's golden age and the late 90's/early 00's silver age.

Funny how subjective music is  ;D

I'm 31.....my favorite era of Hip Hop was 1992 to 1996.

1997 to about 2000 was fine, not "golden", but very solid.

2000 to 2008 was terrible. There were some bright spots (Kanye, Em, Lupe, T.I., Game, Luda)....but the ringtone era of Soulja Boy, Mims, D4L, etc....was in my opinion, the worst music ever released by major labels.

2009 to 2013 was fine IMO....I was busy paying attention to rising underground stars (at the time) like Drake, Kendrick, Cole, Wiz, Wale, Big Sean, Charles Hamilton, B.o.B, Etc....then they actually become the mainstream stats (well, most of them)

2014 to 2016....trash....not quite as bad as the mid 2000s, but yeah....mumble rap sucks.

I really feel a genuine shift in the culture with this Kendrick album....similar to what 50 Cent did to bling bling/rap love song era.

I also thought that rap from 1997-2000 was fine but not golden.

I like rap music from 2000-2008 (even some snap rap :-X)....but that's because I grew up listening to rap music from then.

I have disliked most rap songs that have been released since 2014 (I dislike trap rap/mumble rap).

The trap rap era didn't begin until the 2011-12 season/school year. However, trap rap started to really dominate the charts badly by 2015 once Fetty Wap's Trap Queen got really big. As I've stated many times not all forms of trap music are hip-hop, and I enjoy the non-hip hop trap elements in certain music a lot better.

2009-2011 was kind of a mini-Renaissance for hip-hop which was totally improved from the snap/crunk rap era.

I know. However, we all know the trap rap of recent it's what we're talking about....and it is mostly trash, IMO.

Rap songs from 2009-2011 were like 55% good, 45% bad, lol...IMO. I did like the early days of Drake, Wiz Khalifa, Lil Wayne, and Meek Mill, etc during that time.

I would say my favorite years for hip-hop were between 1999 and 2012. In 2013, trap took over completely and I haven't liked it as well since. There was a slight uptick in 2015 but it didn't last.

Hopefully Kendrick Lamar's new album is as instrumental as some people think it will be.

No. He simply isn't as skilled as Lupe Fiasco was in the late 00s.

The Trap /melodic era of the 2010s has probably been the darkest era for rap while the 90s and 00s were the brightest. Gangsta rap in the 90s and Alternative rap in the mid to late 00's brought though provoking lyricism to the mainstream. Even crunk brought unique & inventative beats.

Modern Trap has just been recycling the same beats over and over. And "artists" like Lil Yachty make me question the current state of the music industry:

Also, anyone else want to rip their ears out after hearing the song Stanky Leg?

Not me but it's not the greatest rap song.

It made lack creativity but the song is really carefree that can give it an advantage.

That song takes me back to my middle school days! Everybody loved it at the time! There's a lot of terrible hip-hop songs out there we used to love when we were preteens or young teenagers. I would have probably been more addicted to trap music had I still been at that age.

Any you guys seen this?

Must admit, it seems like the video creator deliberately chose the worst songs from 2007-2017 to make those years look bad.

That's a bad video. The uploader completely ignores Billboard charts and sales when selecting songs from 2007-2017. Some of those songs from the late 00s I've literally never even heard of until now. Interesting.

They did a decent job showing how 80's rap went from rhyming over disco to having actual hip hop beats in 1983 (only problem is for 1986 with Push It, they didn't even showcase the rapping, just the instrumental hook).

I'm no expert in music, but Kendrick Lamar's Humble reminds me of music from 1998!  8)  8)  8)

I actually liked some rap and hip hop songs from the 1980's and 1990's. Even early 00's.
His rap is good, and doesn't just talk about sex and drugs, etc, etc, etc.
Reminds me of music from the 1990's!

Oh OK....I thought that you meant stylistically his songs sound like they are from 1998.
