    Also the songs you linked are completely lame by even 90's standards, so i'm guessing people wanted to listen to better beats and lyrics.

    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.

    Because sex, violence and music where loser rappers (I could name some but that would just derail the whole thread) talk about nothing but money, cars, girls, jewelry, clothes and drugs in every single line on a song sell. Money comes first before quality these days I find

    Nothing

    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.
