I'm gonna haveta admit. I like the track with Jay-z called Beware. In fact I think it's the hottest track that has been released as of late. I find that either people love this track or they hate it beyond belief. Incorporating different world rhythms and styles has been a fad recently in hiphop. Diwali, Bangra (i think thats what this india stuff is called) and a range of influences are starting to pop up in hiphop, in a desperate attempt to find new production styles. It seems like producers are reaching outside hiphop to add to it. My question is, how does this make you feel? There are your classic boom and bap fans, and people that like traditional hiphop and don't like the way that hiphop is evolving. For instance Premo swears by staying true to hiphop and it's culture. But, I personally believe that the incorporation of new styles will help breed a new generation of innovation in the rap game. Short and simple, bringing other types of music and blending them with hiphop will bring new sounds. Possibly alternatives to this pop Ja Rule **** that I have to plug my ears to on a daily basis. Any thoughts? Do you like the fact that hiphop tracks are incorporating influences from other cultures?
