Rhyme and reason: why does this generation prefer "rappers" over emcee's and "club beats" over lyrical content? How did they become so far removed from what hip hop really is/was? Many believe it's actually the fault of their predecessor generation for ushering in the "blind bling" era. With "rappers" now using auto tone and mumbling mixed with singing and rambling makes it hard to understand words if any used. Maybe it's part of a bigger plan to remove hip hop from the black community in general?!?! Join your hosts Jeremy, Jesse and schelett as they discuss these issues in our culture as well as solutions as to making hip hop "great again".
