  • Despite the hate from a certain crowd, the music is too authentic to fade away and rap strives on authenticity. Most of the records are super catchy and easily digestible which is how most people want their music in rap in general. The emotions reflect real struggles while being able to connect to different audiences (not talking about those weird white girls talmbout they relate to rod wave). There's also hella untapped potential in sampling and remaking classic southern records. MO3 (rip to the goat) remaking long time coming was an example of this

    This could have easily been a live performance at music bar.

    Rod wave was already trying this a bit for tombstone he just used a different beat

    And rod wave and youngboy are the two artists who can keep this going. Roddy could probably do it as well but I feel like hed do better with jazz styled production. In some ways, this is pretty much the evolution of the original black sound or the original black sound adjusting to the music climate. I'm pretty sure there's gonna be an article about this later on as these artists grow vocally. Boosie is also partially responsible for this. He just didnt have the creativity but those old tracks he had really reflect this renaissance.

    This is honestly a dope moment for music.

  • as long as the music is good idrc but it’s kinda played out to me ngl.

    they needa switch up their sounds after awhile just like Yb did. This why YB the best one out of all these niggas 🤦🏽‍♂️

    free kentrell man

  • This is the future of hip-hop. I wonder why a majority of ktt only likes to hear ignorant trap and guns d**** and hoes. Why do people want hip-hop to be stuck as the same thing over and over

    hasn't z-ro been doing this forever? gates too?

    Gates and zro rap a lot tho so I think theres is more like production with a few melodies. Rod wave is basically just a singer. M03 would have been that as well down the line imo

  • this music has a crazy dedicated fanbase. op right, this is gonna last a while

  • rx friendly ghost

    hasn't z-ro been doing this forever? gates too?

    Yes lmao. It's been here for a long while. I listen to some of it, but there is a lot of it where I can be fine listening to a few artists from that lane.

    I feel what you're saying but no, once this evolves into something else these methods used to get out pain will be dated.

    Just as everything else, BUT I believe the point you're trying to make is that the substance of street rap into mainstream rap and THIS FORM of expression will not fade for a very long time, and that is some of the positives I give rap in the mainstream TODAY for resurfacing and having a lot more than prior years. But like Kanye > Wayne > Drake > The Generations now... the methods always get better and create a new sound.

    In coming years a lot of them will be unable to surface the current times in terms of longevity, truth hurts but aye it is what it is.

    i know some of em on twitter who calls them talented but says they need better production. So they don’t fully be hating on em

  • Good thread tbh, will be cool to see how the sound evolves

    Nah cause r&b has been incorporated into rap for nearly 3 decades and rappers now singing on records only cemented it. It's only gonna grow and become more applicable to blues and soul because it's the easiest and rawest way to express emotions. Most rappers that break out come from the south. The reason people began singing in the south is consistent with why artists want to sing so much now. It's more to it than style. If anything, the only other thing I can see being added is like jazz elements into street tales but that might be for artists from different regions.
