    Based off of what people consider to be classics or projects people think will be timeless and live on to another generation, I would say the newer gen has recency bias much greater than the past generations of hip hop listeners. Obviously a lot of it has to do with the speed at which music is releasing, staying relevant and then dying out along with the much larger quantity of music that is readily available but it seems like the newer gen is much quicker to deem albums not even 2 years old as "classics" or state that the discographies will be timeless into the next generations when they haven't even survived more than a few years after release.

    Definitely understand that many of the people who are stating these opinions are still young and much more prone to hype but I think that has created an era where the recency bias is much larger than it was before when albums trickled out much slower and people could actually digest the music at a reasonable pace and truly form hard opinions about a work.

    Definitely a changing of the times but its interesting seeing the perspectives and takes of the newer generation (even if I feel that a lot of the takes will age horribly into the 2020s). But I would say that hip hop listeners in their late 20s and on had less recency bias overall when it came to declaring the longevity and impact of certain albums. Obviously social media being around is another huge change that makes it easier than ever for this behavior to be normalized but what do you think? Is the newer gen more prone than the other generations to recency bias?

    Important note: Not saying this was not an issue in other generations, mainly that the issue is much greater now than it ever was before.

    Its been a ramp up, obviously people in their 20s now probably are biased to newer projects more than the older gen but I absolutely think the newer gen is much quicker to deem importance to projects that have barely existed for more than a few years or leven less time than that. People are still listening to Man on the Moon 10 years later, and even Rodeo 5 years later, but will the newer gen still be listening to ? a few years from now?

    I mean yeah. You said it yourself, with how fast paced everything is these days, it鈥檚 inevitable.

    Plus you have social media encouraging groupthink n all that

    It is what it is though, I think a lot of it is just for fun. Being excited in the moment

    every generation has its fast food music, and only a handful of artists that last through the generation

    A lot of artists that are considered legendary each generation, are considered as such more for what they did in their relative time as opposed to how long they lasted
