Call in to speak with the host
Most of us have heard 90s rapper, KRS-One, talk about how far hip-hop has plummeted down the music totem poll. We have heard similar sermons from other older rappers as well.

And, quite frankly, it can be a little embellished-upon. There’s a low entry level, and it’s become monotonous and congested.
