Murs And HipHopDX Present "Rap's Generation Gap: Old Heads Vs. Young Bucks" (Video)
Yeah, RUN-DMC gave the rap game its own dress code (post 'borrowed from Disco' style)... Maybe their predecessors thought that was a step too far. And those shots taken at RUN-DMC by their peers and 'descendants'... Maybe the young'ns are just taking shots and throwing rocks just as every youthful element of our ever-aging art of rap does to the elders in the game. Overall, solid commentary/history on the evolution of Hip-Hop. Respect to Murs (who is no slouch on the mic himself).
The generation gap in the Hip-Hop community is wider than ever. Classic Hip-Hop has its own radio stations in a few major markets because the old heads don't want to hear all that new Mumble Rap. A lot of new rappers can't even name one song by any of the classic Hip-Hop greats because, in their opinion, none of them measure up to Drake. The more either side opens their mouth, the wider the divide becomes. Do we continue to let nature take its course or do we attempt to bridge the gap? Is the gap even bridgeable? Rap's Generation Gap: Old Heads vs. Young Bucks. Let's break it down...
(But sometimes we really want go 'full Rapaport' though, Murs. Hahahaaaa!)
