>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?

Saw this stupid click bait video recommended to me on youtube too.

The share is still too high. 1/3rd of all music listened to and it's all a rehash of Hip Hop from the 90s. uygha, uygha, kill a uygha, smack a bitch, sell some drugs.

>Hip hop only had 1 album in the top 10 this year,

Hip hop music has been about singles and the uygha of the week for awhile.

Hip Hop officially died when this guy wasn't laughed out of the industry.

 

>>8914
its not just one video its a bunch of videos plus headlines on articles

 

>music is dead and le bad now
>no I will let not just look for better music from more obsucre artists/labels/platforms

shit the bed clean the sheets

 

>>8917
i think people are talking about mainstream popularity, not the fact that there will probably always be good underground artists.

 

>>8913
genres get played out. It happens.

 

>recorded music consumption
what counts as 1 consume for music tho? If a song is good I'm going to listen to it more than once. If it's good enough to keep coming back to I'm going to save it to a local medium. Also I tend to discover music through 3rd party clients like newpipe, since platforms disincentivize playing directly from the platform, and through fanworks, which don't count toward the official stats.

 

>>8920
i dont think most people go through that much trouble anon

 

Just look for shit bro
You're acting like a meteor hit the earth or something, there's always gonna be a bunch of stuff getting released at a time
>>8918
Mainstream is a spook, especially now that the internet is a thing

 

>>8924
this
All this hip-hop/rock n roll is dead is just old-school fools looking for vintage aesthetic.

 

>>8931
hip hop isnt dying but it is declining because younger Gen Z's like jersey club, pop/kpop, and taylor swift.

 

>>8940
they aid the same thing back.in 2005-2011.

And you say that like its a bad thing.
And Gen Z has their own epoch of rap with the trap and drill shit.

I wish rap music would grow out of gangster themes. It did or a time back 2008 - 2013 with LMFAO, Black Eyed Peas, Pitbull and whatnot with house music.

 

>>8941
trap is old, it goes back to the 90s but it was a bit more obscure back then so some people think it's more recent

 

>>8942
>>8941
>>8940
to many dril rappers going viral and dying in gang shootouts before the escape the life

 

>>8941
maybe check out the whole hexd/surge/sigilkore scene, tbh there still some gangster themes as you call them but the instrumentals and overall aesthetic is completely different.

 

>>8917
Speaking of obscure Hip-Hop artists, a great one is Jazz Spastiks. Sucks that they aren't more popular. If you like Hip-Hop from the 90s, you'll probably love these dudes, although I think any music fan of any era can enjoy their shit.

Some songs of theirs (these songs are some of my favorite songs):

Drake's music is kinda fun tho
He raps like how young people talk even though he's like an old ass millennial at this point
Also no one gives a shit about "inauthenticity" anymore
Plasticness is the wave

 

hip hop is too limiting, i haven't listened to that shit since i was 16 or something
i moved onto house, techno, jazz, etc.

 

Recommend me some hip-hop along these lines. I usually listen to instrumental hip-hop because I grew tired of gangsta rap and its derivatives.

 


 

>>8996
exactly. Hip hop wamts to remain ghetto fab, rapping about thug life problems and "coming up". Nothing is allowed to be artsy or purely fun.

Its just punk for blacks.

Rap music was best left as jazz poetry

 

>>9078
>Nothing is allowed to be artsy or purely fun.
The peak was right here.

 

>>8913
Plenty of old heads make new music but its hard to find even Ai algorithms struggle to find new listenable rap.

 


 

>>9080
fun hip-hop is kino

 


 

>>8913
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

 

>>8913
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.

 

>>9169
Lol they play hip hop instrumentals on that NPR marketplace show everyday. They even play Mobb Deep kek.

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.
