    ^ I can't handle such a drastic shift tbh.

    Anyone listening Bar Exam 4? Royce raps like he physically can't stop. Twilight Zone is great.

    pretty damned bizarre. I guess we'll see how this plays out if there is a trial.

    I'm not surprised at Creole apparently working a "regular job" at this point, seems like the GMF/Furious Five always have this internal squabble that's on and off, plus it seems like "classic-era rappers" just don't get the bookings like R&B artists from their (late 70s early 80s) heyday might get, let alone classic rock folks.

    Hip hop's moved really fast since the beginning and there's not a dedicated group of fans listening to the guys who originated the genre like there are guys who religiously listen to the original classic rock groups. Dedicated fan bases only start with the groups who started getting played on the radio. Run DMC and Public Enemy are probably some of the earliest examples.

    West Coast rapper Murs explores the presence of "hick-hop" in the midst of a rise in controversies over the Confederate flag and seething red-state resentments in the Trump era--



    http://youtu.be/DEUm_wuCkx0



    From a journalistic standpoint it’s intriguing. Much like the Detroit-grown Insane Clown Posse/ICP, the so-called “hick-hop” groups and solo acts are Caucasian rap music performers who have cultivated careers that manage to thrive without seemingly much, if any, of a relationship with the minority demographics that created and nurtured hip-hop in its earliest years (e.g. black, Latino). Most of them operate on independent labels, which in this era of Itunes, YouTube and streaming-platform-based promotion (Spotify, etc.), would seem to be an advantage and a balancing force compared to the resources afforded to the music acts signed to major corporate labels. I guess we'll see how this sub-genre evolves-- if at all-- are some of them doing trap-style records?

    In Detroit, Kid Rock continues to tease his theoretical bid for the GOP senate seat in 2018-- but in the meanwhile, he's scheduled to perform for six nights in a row at the newly constructed Little Caesar's Arena in downtown Detroit. The stadium was largely subsidized with roughly $324 million in city money, against an estimated $800+ million overall cost for Olympia Entertainment (Aside from owning the Little Caesar's pizza corporation, the Ilitch Family owns the Red Wings hockey team and the Tigers baseball team).

    There will be a Kid Rock- themed restaurant (!!!) in the arena that will be open for business throughout the year, apart from any sports games.

    Ma$e just dropped a diss track about Cam'ron called Oracle.

    Mase accused Cam of sleeping with his own sister which isn't really hard to imagine being true as Cam'ron bragged about sleeping with his own aunt on a track once.

    hopefully no hip-hop deaths in 2018. no homicide, no drastic health issues, no freak accidents.

    I really can't eeven take hip hop anymore. As a fan of the late 90s, early 2000s genre this stuff today, IMO is crap. I know I'm older now, but can barely stand to keep it on the hip hop station longer than 1 minute.
