Dirty_habiT Posted September 22, 2018 Share Posted September 22, 2018 Wtf is up with "new music". I'm trying real hard to not seem crusty here. I "discovered" some videos the other day on Diplo's youtube channel that really made me wonder what the heck is going on with music. Lil Pump Trippy Red Little Xan Their songs are very simple in terms of lyrical technicality, not that that's some measure of good music.... but I remember watching Scribble Jam videos where people with actual skills were trying to defeat eachother. These new songs have the same word rhyming at the end of ever line and they same the same sentence multiple times and this constitutes a "song". (For instance Trippy Red says in "wish" - i can't feel my face, i can't feel my face, i can't feel my face, i can't feel my face." Like we get it dude, you're going to stroke out from a cocaine induced heart attack at 35. I don't get the "whisper rap" or the people that sound like they've never taken a singing class in their life. Again, i'm trying real hard to not be crotchety here about this but it really seems like our standards have just fallen through the floor that I thought was rock bottom. Can someone give me some insight as to what it is the kiddos are finding so fascinating about this genre? I'd bet money that most kids into this music, without looking it up, couldn't name 3 of the elements of hip hop. If anyone else has anything else they're not understanding and need broken down for them, please ask here. This doesn't just have to be about my new young person music question. 1 2 1 Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
