    I was torn at first I wanted to vote the 10s but settled on the 90s because thats the era almost all my favorite albums were from. But I do like the era were in now. I think we've bounced back from a hip hop recession and there's been some great things in this era. You got Drake, the Watch the throne album, Good Kid Mad City, so on so forth. Not to say its an era as great as the 90s but theres a chance for some great things happening in this era

    the 90s easily but I also really like the early to mid 00s after about 2006 it really started to go to shit. I didn't like the 80s stuff at first but now I like a lot of it.

    My point exactly. 9th wonder believes in the 20 year cycle. This decade has the potential to restore balance back to Hip Hop. People love Kendrick and Joey Bada$$ but we also need Trinidad James and Future. If not then we'll lose Hip Hop for good. Back in the early '00's fans got burned out on Eminem and Nas and Papoose and anyone else who was lyrical. We substituted that with DJ Unk, Soulja Boy and other fun sounding acts. Balance is the key and not just underground. We need concious, lyrical, fun, stupid, crazy all in the mainstream market.

    I predict that by the end of this decade, Golden Era Hip Hop fans will be very satisfied.

    That's my story also! I really liked the '00 and '01, those two years had so much good music and it did continue up until 2006. Maybe I'm wrong but I think that Timbaland changed the game. Timbaland "started" electropop/synthpop at 2005/2006 with Loose, FutureSex/LoveSounds and Shock Value 1 (btw. 3 good albums). After that everything went electro and synthpop(Lady Gaga )...

    I hope you're right! To me Nitty Scott MC is the future of good old rap. Just listen to her song Bullsh*t Rap (even D.M.C is in the video), she's da bomb!

    10's hip hop sounds like late 80's hip hop....too bad people call it "trap" instead of hip hop. And too bad so called hip hop people would say nah...that ain't hip hop.



    90's hip hop is lame man. Has no swag. Dudes talking bout keepin it real in the streets and shit. Rapping in code and shit about shit people see everyday. 90's rappers were a bunch of know it alls with no life...or a bunch of psycho paths....or some weirdos. 90's rappers cried about "this is real hip hop" on every song. 80's rappers were normal hip hop human beings.



    Truth be told.....90's R&B saved yall 90's rappers.

    Prove me wrong. Biggie wouldn't be shit without R&B. Big Pun, Nas, you name a rapper and a R&B type song saved their life. Jay Z was like "I'm perfectly sane".......because hell....every rapper was rapping like they were some kind of retarded lunatic who wants world peace but the world is too fuucked up for world peace...or some mass murderer ass person..just flip a coin. They mind gone on the most potent weed more potent than what you as a normal human being smoke...so don't fuuck with them on that shit. 90's rappers....high ass fuuck in interviews. Hip hop fans like "ahilk a hilk...he high ass hell son.....give me a shot gun son". 90's rappers gangsta as hell...lips touching trying to blow a shot gun with a roach and shit...FOH. 90's rappers were out of shape talking bout they'll whoop somebody's ass.

    Nothing negative you can say about 80's rappers.

    Tha mufukkin G-Unit era....haha...no better time in hip-hop then when the Unit came in the game...no, the 90's were better with Dre and pac....California Love still the best hip-hop song ever. But when 50 came in the game...he was the last real gsngster before all these other wankstas came in....people will deny it but that was the re-birth of hip-hop until 50 self destructed...one of the biggest geniuses in the game... Boy went HAM.

    Now yall sitttin here all depressed like "damn, i wish 50 cent was still hot"...yeah..i peep game like that...this boy is a genius too.....

    Are you completely ****ing insane? The 90's gave us The Roots, Outkast, X-Clan, Pharcyde, Busta Rhymes and a ton more positive/fun rappers. All anyone chooses to remember is gangsta rap. The fans bought more gansta-rap than anything else so it was never the artists fault. If Tribe Called Quest outsold NWA we wouldn't even be having this conversation today.

    You my friend have forgotten the golden rule of economics. The customer is always right. The reason Trinidad James is on the radio is because people eat that shit up. Meanwhile acts like The Roots, Papoose, Immortal Technique and Saigon get no publicity. They still have a loyal core group of fans but the masses love bullshit.

    Another thing the 90's gave us is diversity. The 80's was 90% east coast artists. So you must have a beef with the west and south my friend cause that's who was represented. Gangsta is what the people wanted, not the artists. A series of unfortunate events took place that set that era in stone. So ****ing what.
