>To be clear, hip-hop is still the most listened-to genre of music by far, and it’s still growing. According to Luminate, it has a 26.8% share of U.S. recorded music consumption; the next closest genre is rock at 20%. But that hip-hop number was 27.7% in 2021 and reached a peak of 28.2% in 2020. After a heightened growth period in the 2010s, hip-hop’s growth has slowed down.

What's up? Hip hop only had 1 album in the top 10 this year, rappers tours are getting cancelled, most mainstream rappers are dropping trash albums?

Is hip hop declining in popularity? and if so why? is it tiktok making pop/kpop popular? or is it just running out of creative juice as a genre?

Maybe one reason is that a lot of young upcoming rappers who were supposed to establish themselves in the industry either died or went to prison (XXXTentacion, Juice Wrld, Lil Peep, Pop Smoke, Tay K).
It just feels stagnating and repetitive now


Reminder the album in the OP came out 17 years ago kek.

Hip Hop should die. It's amazing it staid around this long. Can't just keep on doing the same counter-culture shit forever and have it still be fresh. Hip Hop should be as dead as Grunge, Punk, Metal etc.


Lol they play hip hop instrumentals on that NPR marketplace show everyday. They even play Mobb Deep kek.

>Can't just keep on doing the same counter-culture shit forever and have it still be fresh.
Was thinking about that too recently. Popular music has been nonstop counter culture for the past half century. Now there is no more culture to counter kek.

>put a fucking hammer & sickle on your album cover
>years later your name is synonymous with everything "old" "outdated" and "pretentious" and considered "white people hip-hop"

The secret meeting definitely happened.


no, kanye cornered the pseudo-political hiphop for conspiritards market


imo his songs in spanish are weird because it obviously isn't his first language. I like his song about 9/11 but not for political reasons, I just like it


> your name is synonymous with everything "old"
well, immortal technique is a 45 year old man for one, and second it applies to a bunch of old east coast rap too, wu-tang clan also has a "white people hip-hop" aura to it.


>years later your name is synonymous with everything "old" "outdated" and "pretentious" and considered "white people hip-hop"

according to who???


Am I crazy for thinking younger Gen Z's have way different music tastes? Alot of zoomer girls like nu-grunge/punk like Olivia Rodrigo, or jersey club, or straight up pop i.e. Taylor Swift, etc. or Kpop. I think Old Gen Z was the last generation that really liked hip hop.

I've seen this theory on 4/mu/ that krautrock was promoted by the British music press during the 70s to show the superiority of West Germany over East Germany, which is funny considering a lot of the bands were far-left themselves (CAN is an abbreviation for "communism, anarchism, nihilism").

What do you think about this?

Mysticism says ‘everything that lives is holy’, so don’t walk on the grass and above all don’t harm a hair on the head of an imperialist.

It omits to mention that the cells on our bodies are dying daily, that life cannot flourish without death, that holiness disintegrates and vanishes with no trace when it is profaned, and that imperialism has to die so that the people can live.

Well, that’s about all I wish to say about Refrain.

To go into it in greater detail would simply invest the work with an importance that it doesn’t have.

No, my job is not to ‘sell’ you Refrain. I see my job as raising the level of consciousness in regard to cultural affairs.

At the outset I said Refrain is part of the cultural superstructure of imperialism.

These terms: ‘superstructure’, ‘imperialism’, require some explanation if the level of consciousness with regard to cultural affairs is to be raised, if we want to grasp the deeper roots of such surface phenomena as avant garde music.

Lenin brings out the aggressive, militaristic, brutal character of imperialism in his 1920 preface to the pamphlet.

He says: ‘Capitalism has grown into a world system of colonial oppression and of the financial strangulation of the overwhelming majority of the population of the world by a handful of “advanced” countries.

And this “booty” is shared between two or three powerful world marauders armed to the teeth (America, Great Britain, Japan), who involve the whole world in their war over the sharing of their booty.’

‘One capitalist always kills many’.

Marx here graphically indicates the ruthlessness of economic development.

In the economic base this produces the contradiction between free competition (i.e. private enterprise) and monopoly capitalism.

How does this contradiction manifest itself in the superstructure?

So we see Stockhausen adopting all the hallmarks of the genius of popular legend: arrogance, intractability, irrationality, unconventional appearance, egomania.

But all this is a small-scale operation compared with the tactics of the ruling class against the direct class enemy, the working class.

In this area we find tactics comparable to the ‘saturation bombing’ technique of the Americans in Vietnam.

There are two main lines of attack.

First wide-scale promotion of the image of bourgeois culture in its prime, the music of the classical and romantic composers (the whole education system is geared to this).

Second, the promotion of massproduced music for mass consumption.

Besides bringing in enormous profits, their hope is that this derivative music (film music, pop music, musical comedy, etc.) will serve for the ideological subjugation of the working class.

The Nazi campaign against ‘degenerate’ art is viewed differently by different classes.

For the bourgeoisie, the main victims in this campaign were the bourgeois avantgardists: Klee, Kandinsky, Schonberg and others whose work did in fact reflect the ideological degeneration of the bourgeoisie into metaphysics.

From the proletarian point of view, the main victims were the Communist artists of the Weimar Republic: Georg Grosz, Käthe Kollwitz, Hanns Eisler, Bertold Brecht.

The German capitalists brought the fascists to power as a last resort, a desperate gamble to stave off collapse.

On the cultural front their attack was twopronged: on the one hand they suppressed the culture (the bourgeois avant garde) that reflected the bankruptcy and weakness of their own class, and on the other they suppressed the culture that reflected the growing consciousness and militancy of their enemy, the working class.

The antisemitic line of the campaign was just a red herring.

There was no need for the Nazis to ban Mahier’s works, for instance, but they did because he was a Jew.

Is vaporwave actually a critique of capitalism?
