For more then a few years now we have watched the infant that a lot of us love called Hip Hop grow. It has undergone massive facelifts, fights, Identity crisis, yeah it's has had plenty of ups and downs. We are all products of some form of mutation as people, that's basic science. Thus a creation that we created will more then likely change into something once it has been created. This is what has happened to hip hop. It has, and is constantly changing. By using the word "MUTATION" that is what I mean...the MUSIC and the way the MUSIC IS SOLD & BOUGHT is RAPIDLY MUTATING. It seems every week I get some email from some music faction telling me that this or that is the "new wave of music marketing". If it's not that then its the "next big movement" or artist that I should be checking for. I'm constantly hit up about a CHANGE ...a MUTATION  of hip hop. From the SOUND, to the FLOW, the music might be the least stable area of hip hop. What people consider to be hot now would have never been considered at that at one time...but again...mutation is inevitable. This change has come at a price...a HUGE PRICE. Whether you consider it good or bad, you MUST INDEED CONSIDER IT ALL when talking about and for certain when dealing with the ever mutating genre of hip hop. Tonight I will discuss a few of these things and do some much needed catching up on "THE INDUSTRY"
