Gangsta rap made me do it
I think the continous popularity of hip-hop is not entirely manufactured or result of a long trend.

I think as much criticism I can fire about the mentality/lyrics in that music, there is vitality in it. Not the kind I personally like or endorse, but there is.

And there is deadness in our societies... low energy-like? We became a bit vampy even some time ago. I think about a decade ago? So... there is stimulation there, that underlies the popularity of it.

I think it´s about authentic vitality, of the Plutonian kind. The kind that you develop when shit hits the fan and you´re forced to call upon inner resources, enough of that and it becomes a permanent state. With advanced states of civilization, you get security that naturally does away with such situations.

It´s inevitable and part of civilizational maturing and some say a start of a long process of decay, a bit like a old person who gets energized around being younger people.

I confess.... 2Pac is/was the only rapper I ever truly liked. I don´t like rap.. never have, but Pac... I don´t know. I always liked him :/

Kanye and Jayzee are pretty good. Took things in new directions. Old style could only go so far.

That whole soundtrack is awesome. First class.

More older cousin music..

I don´t think it has any more or less rage than an NWA song.. just expressed differently. Maybe current society is similar. Things are just on slow simmer.

I wouldn´t call myself a rap fan (there are some songs here and that I like) but I get what you´re saying about the vitality of it.

Same reason I still love metal...although the vitality in heavy metal stems more from the musical energy itself than any cultural reason. I would say that hip hop is also pretty "vital" from a musical standpoint, but that most of its vitality is more cultural...it was born on the streets, and not neccesarily the best of streets...places where people had to be "vital" and always on-point to survive.

Either way, would rather listen to that than a bunch of whiny white guys bitching about their self-manufactured problems in some emo band.

Ok, I see why Pac was the only rapper I ever truly liked/could stand now.

His Jupiter in Anuradha hits my ASC / Ketu , his Venus is in Rohini over my Moon and Rahu, and his Lilith is in Uttara Phalgunni over my Sun/Venus.. lol

Eminen. Sun/Mercury in LIBRA.
