One of the most common debates in the Hip Hop community is what is and what isn’t considered “real” Hip Hop. The majority of purists will be quick to tell you that MC’s like KRS One and Joey Bada$$ make “real” Hip Hop while rappers like Migos and Future do not. Does that make them “fake” Hip Hop artists? However you frame it, we aren’t the first generation to have this debate, but this week, we will attempt to settle it once and for all. Real Hip Hop vs. Fake Hip Hop: is there really a difference?

All the old hate the new no disrespect because Im 40 now bit anyway old hates new because of nostalgia. From fans and the artists old aren't making the money anymore especially hip hop there are some old blues and Er ok and other styles that tour for 50 years but I St not know to many hip hop stats doing that

It’s about cleverness and construction. Modern mumble rap doesn’t have much construction, little to no complexity, and basically no wordplay that made old school rap and hip hop great.
Great breakdown on the debate.

Deadly Raver 1, Make money, take money anthem was for parties and clubs not in songs. 2. His Das Efx comparison was weak simply because they did that for one song and it was clever to grab all those commercial rhymes and make a song for its time. Outside of that one song Das Efx had all original lyrics and style, not to mention that is one artist hes comparing to everyone ising lil and sounding the EXACT same today even Snoop Dog makes fun of modern rappers because they didnt do that back then. 3. His auto tunes comparison is a joke a DJ scratching records and repeating an opening bar was the most fappers did back then. Hes being exfremly nit picky in thos vidwo as not to offenx a whole new generation of rap fans. 4. Rap progressed then regressed, Once the East West wars were ended Biggie Pac were dead, DMX was a full blow crack head, Pun was dead P Diddy was making the band, Suge Knight was in prison. So there was a hige opening for southern rap to step into and that is the music your heneration frew up listening to, dumbed down regressive lyrics that instead of having multibar rhymes went back to 80s var for var rhymes everyone calling themselve lil. Real quick look up NAS lifes a bitch lyrics then pick modern rappers mentioned on here and see the difference lyrically.

I mean most of yall aint know the difference between mumbling and a southern accent. You giving mumble some long ass definition that fits what you think about popular rap not in any way what it actually is. Yall call people like Gucci, and Migos fake but they rap about what they experience when if you listen to their start what they were spitting was real shit they had experienced and as they came up they rapped about what they getting and whats happening. People looking for deep lyrics in rap when thats the wrong genre in the first place. They all rappers, and they all hip hop, but not everyone is good in your opinion. Use your fucking heads.

Zack B Dont need to I saw it and he missed the mark on just about everything. He has to stay pc in order to keep you, he's not fonna insult the garbage that comes out today. His Das Efx comparison was way off seeing as that is one song compared to the the constant use on todays music. The party anthem " make money money make money money take money money take money money money" is just that a party anthem from back in the day no one was reapedly used it lyrically. And that auto tunes comparison Im not even going to address that and yes I was there for all that back in the day shit, truth is Rap got dumbed down big time and its the souths fault.

knightwing178 (4 days ago)
This is my first time ever hearing of you. You are 100% wrong. Classic hip hop is exactly what it is meant to be. CLASSIC!!!!!!! You know white people used to call RAP. Crap! And it has become that. Hop hip told a story. True or not but a story. J. Cole and Kendrick Lamar are the only new rappers in the game who knows real hip hop. These other guys don’t know shit. Just a beat and a hook. That’s what’s brain washing the music of today. Not lyrics. And most for them don’t even have a flow.

I think you're wrong bro, today hip hop is more about hooks and beats and less about the story. Plus most of these guys today portray life that the average youth can't relate to. You are hand picking but in general most of the guys now are hard to follow.

No joke...you changes my "perception/thoughts"...I'm an Old Head growing up in LA...(44 years ago) "nostalgia" is right! Although I do think "we" don't have many thoughtful/lyrical rappers these days compared to what we had "back in the day"...I feel your point 100%...

I'm 32 white boy from the south I loved Mc hammer at 5 had a Keith sweat tape at 9 and was listening to Bone and Pac at the bus stop. I found the Isley Bros, Sam Cooke, AL Green, and others in my teens I like all rap and R&B r Kelly, Avant, jagged edge, master p I also like country, metal, pop, bluegrass, dub, there's a lot of good music out there people try something different. I love some migos songs to. Drake is hilarious on the walk it like I talk it video.

"Borrowing" from commercials is _not_ commercial. Its pop culture reference. Back then there were fewer channels and no internet, so people watched pretty much the same stuff. That Das EFX used mumbley sounding words, doesnt mean they didnt mean something. RAP means rythm and poetry. Mumble rap has no poetry. You cant compare people breaking ground in a culture to people actively seeking to break away from it - and then call them the same. Mumble rap is what you get when you appeal more to the pop aspect of a culture which has become popular through different means. Its drifting away, not evolving. In biology, once you cant procreate, youre talking about a different species. Mumble rap is a different species. It holds none of the tenants of the past, so is not part of its future.

I think the issue with mumble rap is not it's originality, nor is it the lack of talent that the artist may have. The issue is that it is just not aesthetic to the ears.

Gabriel Chiasson (6 days ago)
I feel that older hip hop is more raw using snares bass lines and good voice while newer one is way more digitalize using autotune and synt to make beats thats why I prefer older hiphop over newer...

Flatbush zombies(headstone) is an example of a group make hiphop music. Give them some play and they'll destroy Migos. Listening to Migos(amigos)is like hearing someone yell out "Figaro" non-stop.

Mumble Rap is it's own genre! Hopsin demonstrated the best!!
Fabien Dumas-Pierre (6 days ago)
I noticed you chose wack rappers from the old school era and compared them wack rappers now. Why didn't you compare future to Rahkeim? Or young thug to Nas. Or even lil wayne to Big Daddy Cane? Logic to Busta rhymes, kendrick to Pac. Post Malone and MGk to Eminem? This argument was selective. Just say you like Migos!

I think this debate is a no brainer. Hip hop lyrics are stories of struggles of the black descendants of slavery who were then emancipated to the white mans jungle with no survival skills and were left to fend and figure out for them selves how to live the white way. They were then labeled no hopers and continuosly harassed by the white so called law abiding citizens to no fault of their own to do the best the could to survive. Survival sometimes meant killing another brother for your space or getting caught up in the rat race or dying way before your time. We call them outcasts, rebels, outlaws then eventually gangsters due to the cards they were dealt. Hip hop lyrics are gangster stories. The hip hop instrumental beats are the story tellers heart felt way of drawing the listener into a journey of their stories. So, hip hop is a gangsters story. If a song doesn't have a story it ain't hip hop. Migo's Future ect dont have a story they just say what ever on their mind and hopefully it rhymes but just like hip hop they have their own beats and they have a special way of drawing listeners in and making you feel happy and want to dance hence they have achieved what they set out to do, and theres nothing wrong with that. I don't know exactly the genre of their style of music is but dont dis them they're artists too. A good artists is one who can put good stories or feelings in to your head, body or soul and at the end of the day it depends on how many asses are in the seats. I think there is a start and expiry date that can be traced if anyone wants to take time out of Hip Hop music, but like most things there's always something new brewing around the corner. Peace Out.

"of course we had sellouts, but even they could string a sentence with a meaning, not just some cringe bs." - FACTS. So I guess we are supposed to agree with your argument that RHYMING does not matter in rap, because....? "GucciGucciG'G'G'GGucci, blllllattt!!!! I need me hunnids o' stax... blllattt!!! blllattt!!" Call me an Uber... This is so Gucci.." (as all the kiddies say, "man! dogg go hard af!!". LMAO) You will never convince anyone who grew up un the 90's and early 00's that these Mumble Trap Goofballs are rap. I'd rather listen to Weird Al Yankovic or Kenny G than Chief Keefe or Lil Uzi LBVS. I'm glad Conway the Machine, KRIT, Vince Staples, Wiz Kalifa, Yelawolf, Royce 5'9", Em and a few others are keeping RHYMING alive. I think Trap music should completely separate from Rap. They are not the same thing. It is like saying that longboarding is the same thing as street or vert skating. Not even close. Completely different styles and completely different categories.

Well I don't think they are hip hop. I think the beat is too trap like. Trap may almost be a subgenre of hip hop but it isn't enough of the same beat to count. Trap came out from hip hop and rap but it isn't the same thing. I wouldn't call this anything but trap coming from the south and spreading through the younger generation and around the world. Listen to British hip hop and British trap and it will demonstrate the difference in genre. Love me or Hate me from Lady S, and then some modern British trap.
The Copycat Ninja (10 days ago)
I agree with what old heads and hip hop elitists says about today's rap music. However, they take it way to seriously and don't realize that everyones music taste is subjective. They are hypocritical at times and say that rap in the 80s and the 90s was conscious and uplifting. They ignore the fact that old school rappers like slick rick, big daddy kane, rakim, and even biggie were rapping about money and living the luxurious lifestyle before the bling era began in the late 90s/early 2000s. They shit on artists like rick ross, future, and meek mill for promoting the thug life mentality while ignoring the fact that NWA, Ice-T, Jay Z, and Wu Tang talked about being mobsters and druglords in their music and heavily influenced a lot of the new school rappers. Even in the old school era, you had artists like Kid n Play, MC Hammer, Dougie Fresh, LL Cool J, 2 Live Crew, and Fresh Prince that made songs for partying and clubbing. There might be a different in skill and talent level between the older and newer generation but the subject matter and topics are the same.
