Violence and sex are good sellers..
I'm alone again and old pine tree
Asked me, where's your woman?
I said: Shut up or I make of you another Firewood
Really small sample of modern Hip-Hop, but in short it hasn't become more violent. I mean, if you were to sample only particular artists it could seem that way, but the same could be done for any generation.
It's just as bad as it always has been.
Maybe the OP wants to say that songs with sex, money, and violence are more popular and coming from more popular artists than it was the case back in the day.
Times change, this generation is in love with that garbage and they will defend it until they are blue in the face. They will send links and tell me that such and such is really good. I will listen to it and literally burst out laughing because it's so atrocious. Rap is always good for a laugh.

You're just being selective
Artists like Lupe Fiasco and Kendrick arent violent and they are the best out there. Gangster rap doesnt even exist anymore like it did in the 90s
If you really want to freak people the fuck out you have to pepper your schemes with mind-boggling inefficiency.
Rap hasn't gotten more violent and you picked random weird songs. Although, the mainstream rap that you see on TV these days is stupid and just talks about sex, ladies, and money. I prefer the rap artists that people don't talk much about such as Lupe Fiasco as someone mentioned. To find good rap, don't listen to what's on TV. You'll find plenty of good rap songs on youtube that aren't popular and don't have vile lyrics. Plus older rap such as in the 80's and 90's are better anyway.
Lupe Fiasco is all I can stand. Other Rap artists like Lil Wayne and Drake preach a culture that sublimely discredits african americans everywhere by validating every negative stereotype and perception about them. They should rot in hell.
the songs linked in the op sound like early 90s rap to me. you only need like 10 seconds of listening to know theyre like 20 years old. so why even bring this up?
One of the greatest albums of the year (good kid, m.A.A.d city) was a rap album. You're just old son.
Because the new GANGSTAH'ZZ think's killing smoking weed and yelling niggahx99 is the requirement if they grow up in places like Detroit... ?
Why? Sorry... clueless.
