You can hear the differences between those records and westcoast or eastcoast records but they are all southern records from the 90s. Then you hear trap and its some other shit. Just sounds like a totally different genre. Listen to some 80s rock and then listen to rock today it still sounds like a rock record not some new genre. Listen to country from the 90s and today it still sounds like country. Hip Hop has drastically changed not that its good or bad but it is a drastic change like a totally new genre. I am not mad about it not being about breaks n shit no more in fact I am happy we progressed from that just think it should have progressed differently.
Not sure how old you are, but...
When Public Enemy came out, it was a completely different sound than what LL and Run DMC were doing. That WALL OF SOUND that the Bomb Squad spearheaded was something totally different.
A Trap beat in 2012 is nothing different than what a Bomb Squad beat was back in 1992.
Remember this??? This flew in the face of EVERYTHING that was going on at the time. Hip Hop was getting more intricate and instrumental, and then this dropped...
That right there...is the equivalent of what the kids are doing today.
Tell me you can't hear 2 Chainz on that beat. Listen to it.
It's the same thing. Just a different take on it.
Stop holding on to hip hop and let the kids do their thing with it. Embrace it and learn from them. Because in a lot of ways, they are innovating.

@ xabiton. I hear what u saying that its changed, but I don't see as dramatic.
Mannie ain't the major cat for trap but hear stuff in there.
36 who cats view as the main trap founders:
I hear the synths in the ol stuff that younger cats built on.

don't sleep on the fact that mannie was heavily influenced(he admits it) by kurtis mantronik. he took it a step into his own direction, but just saying while we're on the topic of innovation, roots, and influences.
that's why it's always best to ask
