Is Gangsta Hip Hop Dead?
yeah it is… so is the whole gangsta persona. new times, new music, new lifestyle
yep. It died in 2007. It beat michael jackson out for length of time something was dead before it got buried, which was in 2009.
Gangsta rap is in a coma, until Detox and The R.E.D. Album drop!
they say gangsta style is in, but im much fresher…so i keep killin the gangsta persona like i got active schizophrenia…
i dnt pump none of there muzic….. 1#drake is 2 much like wayne 2#wale raps about random bullshit 3# kid cudi cant rap 4 shit….. they cant fuck with nippsy or stat q
to me all three guys do a nice job ushering in a new wave into hip-hop without having to be all gangsta props to all three for dat Wale and Cudi put out hot albums to me that involve thought. (notice drakes hands in this photo.)
Man these guys cant kill anything, they fresh on the scene,cudi’s album was decent and wale’s is the same and drake shouldnt talk at all, its annoying, and ghost rae and meth album should be a good reminder that the gangsta rap aint dead
I have outgrown gangsta rap. I’m making mortgage payments and have kids to feed. I think Kanye West and Obama winning the election also played a role.
So is that why 50 Cent is working so hard to stay relevant in rap, lol! Fif should have retired when Kanye West outshined him! Where’s Mr. West at in this pic anyways?
gangsta rap isn’t dead ..they didn’t kill anything,
claim? its not a claim its a fact, and i applaud them all. its obviously not completely dead but mainstream it is…
@6 misterg…. what about the godam hands u faggot???? these 3 three idiots don’t rap about killing but they’re still ignorant cuz all they rap about is money, cars and hoes…
As far as killing gangsta rap ..that just shows how theyre dum, ignorant and full of themselves… Gansta rap died way before they even came out… For me it died when PAC died….
Gansta rap represented the racial, economical and just overall struggle that black youth had to deal with in the 90’s …Tupac represented that in hiphop and rhymed about it and when he died, that struggle wasn’t represented the right way or atleast it wasn’t all captured, which resulted in that art form slowly fading away… At the same time, were not in the 90’s anymore and that struggle from just isnt there anymore…things got better and there’s a black president.
If anything i think the cultural change and the lifestyle difference along with the death of the rapper who was best at broadcasting the struggle, resulted in the death of the gangsta rap artform.
It’s awkward for these three goofs to come out of no where and act like they have the power to make a cultural impact.. like who the fuck are you???? do they even have albums out???
I’d rather bump some gangsta shit, and this garbage shit Cudi released.
BISD, RED ALBUM, DETOX (HOPEFULLY). how the fuck gangsta rap dead?
by the way, J.Cole is more talented than any of these 3 (drake, wale, cudi). I hope he gets his cover next year. This nigga really make me think with his music…
Comercial yea but in the streets?? Fuck naw!! As long as niggaz is goin through it the gangsta rap soundtrack will stay relavant. Niggaz is still gettin shot!
Drake’s jacket looks like a furry vagina.
I dont think that gansta rap is dead I just think that the ppl have grown tired of the “fake thug” (ie rick ross, Ja rule, The game, Plies, and the list goes on) at this moment. just like when mase first came out… after a while ppl will grow weary of this era of rap and we’ll “be on to the next one” (Jay-z)
Yeah, especially after Drake came through as mister MVP hardcore gangster spitter on So Far Gone, knowing damn well he is 1,000 miles from Toronto trying to sound hood.
kid cudi got a big as head lol and gangsta rap isnt dead…good gangsta rap is damn near dead tho
yo fucking idiots…they siad they killed the gangsta rap persona….meaning dey made people stop thinking all rapppers are gangster rappers….they did not saying anything about killing Gangsta Hip-Hop music…n noo it’s not dead…there are so many how can ya even say it’s dead….Game. Fab, 50, Ross, Wayne, Jada….Hip-Hop is dying just dying finnacially….the gangsta rap thing is just the stereotype that they killed
and Wale should of been replace by Lupe or something….that nigga ain’t change shit lol
Kanye, Drake, n Lupe should be up there cause Kid Cudi n Wale bareky did damage…good music but they r not poppin like the other 3
Wale just is looking for pretty girls. So, now that he found one, he REALLY ain’t hardcore
You know, I think it is funny how you can come thru and be like I been shot 7 times and deal drugs from here to Saudi Arabia, and got hella shit on hold, and then someone like Cudi comes through and is like UHH..I LIKE TA DRAW. What
FIRST OF ALL
WALE IS BOUT TO FLOP N OVERHYPED
KUDI IS TALENTED BUT HE IS NOT A RAPPER OR LYRICIST
BOTH DONT ARENT SUPERSTARS TO CHANGE ANYTHING
HATE EM OR LIKE DRAKE IS
This 3 guys are great but in my opinion Kid Cudi is different from hip hop he just in hip hop community but his music is great but people don’t consider as hip hop drake is very talented but fuckin with cash money makes him look bad in my opinion he would be better with out them but he prolly wouldn’t get that big hype wale is great also and his new album got some hot ish,
naw wale didnt do shit its kudi and drake’s the problem lol
@19 scroony… you stupid fuck…..people already know all rappers are not gangters it’s a common fact that theres pop rappers out there…. They were actually trying to say they came in and took out the gangsta artform and replaced it with theyre own… they might have worded it differently but thats the meaning or atleast the message they’re trying to convey…
Anyways i forgot i’m on a hiphop site there’s only gonna be ignorant, brainwashed idiots with partialy impaired cerebrums on here…. I COSIGN MYSELF Hiphop number 12
They look like a bunch of fags…It’s more a sign of the times than anything else. Celebrity without reason is also a sign of the times. What has anyone of these guys done to that has significantly affected hip hop?
Drake is the most successful of the three and he has one hot mixtape and a few verses. But then again Obama won the Nobel Prize for doing nothing so I guess it’s really a sign of the times.
Big up to these 3 brothers…well Kid Cudi not so much and Drake ehh, but big respect to Wale. Death to fabricated ignorant gangsta mafiso rap! Its time to elevate and inspire a nation of real shit, creativity & great thinkers. Shout to Mr. West for breaking down that door and big respect to Fiasco, who is also a pioneer in the new movement of rap.
ummm gucci mane aint gangsta rap? young jeezy aint gangsta rap? or is it trap muzik?
Gucci is gangsta? lol than Bill O Reilly is Scarface, come on what are you a 15?
Um Fuck, why is Wale really gangster?
KEEP RAW HARDCORE HIPHOP ALIVE
THESE DUDES AINT STRONG ENOUGH
Or, why are you giving him the utmost respect?
This slave mentality of thinking has got to end. I do NOT think people care about the blocks you have on hold anymore. I don’t think that’s what Linda wants her little 7 year old Riley listening to or talking about..they want pretty girls and things!!
I SAY THAT HOUSE, SHOULD BE A CRACK HOUSE
NOW SEE IT MY WAY OR I GET THE STRAPS OUT
ITS COLD BLOODED , ITS REAL SHIT YOU GOTTA LOVE IT
LOLOLOL,, YALL CAN KEEP LISTENIN TO THESE GOODY GOODIES
i dont know why some of you gettin all emotional.none of you niggas live in the hood anyways and like somebody already said,they’re not talking about gangsta rap is dead its the persona..fuckin idiots
gangsta hiphop is def dead even ppl that you would put in that gangsta bubble is more so tlkn about drug sales and living it up there is no one tlkn frm that poor grimey hardcore point of view their is a void in the market for someone to fill
i dont know anyone who is out that can come frm that place i would say 50 but i cant believe it comming off his G4 doing books signings with robert greene
prolly styles p, beanie sigel i would say are your modern day gangsta artist BUT WHERE ARE THEY NOW?
@cosign myself #12 and cosingn sheesy #28 except for saying Obama hasn’t done anything to deserve a nobel prize…. again independent thinking is crucial in life…just cause that’s what the media says doesn’t actual mean he didnt deserve it…Obama won that based on his diplomatic polical approach towards mainly the middle east, Asia, and the rest of the world… he has a fair, peaceful agenda towards almost everything what other prize can he win besides “The Nobel peace Prize” personally i haven’t seen these type of actions or attitude from any previous Leaders..
So..ItsWavie212, do you think if Cudi, Drake and Wale came thru in wife beaters and gold medallions and such they would attract that “gangsta” crowd more? So..it’s as easy as changing your persona?? So..are these so called niggas out here really gangster??? Can Drake come through with a gloc 40 and be cool????
(y’all ain’t give me 40 acres and a mule).
WTHELL DOES OBAMA N HIS NOBEL PEACE PRIZE HAVE TO DO WITH THIS
this nigga really said some shit about Obama winning a nobel prize…wtf haha
@ #19 and 37 are some of u idiots trying to say that …drake, cudi and that 3rd idiot are saying that they made it cool to not be a gangsta rapper?????….as in “Killed the gangta persona in rap” ??? But its the same as saying that because of them, the most succesfull persona in rap is no longer the gansgta persona….so theyre saying as a result, the gangta persona is no longer cool …if u can reason and if u interpret the meaning behind that they’re sayin before, rappers had a gangsta persona and then they came in and now rappers no longer have a gansta persona because they killed it
Now lets put two and tow together
who portrays the gangsta persona??? = ganster rappers
rappers who dont portray gangsta persona = pop rappers
if u kill the ganster persona = u kill gangter rappers
if u kill gangta rappers it = killing the gangsta artform
i hate to break it down like that but thats what it comes down to when your communicating with idiots
cosign me 12 & 27
@44 read the whole fucking comment u idiot.. what are you illeterate ???? “this nigga jus said something about obama hahaha” fucks wrong wit u …. nigga read …how fuckin hard is it to read so u understand where its coming from for u make an ass out urself fool
gangsta rap aint dead and if you think it is you can come get hit with my eaggggle
Eagle St.! BUT WHY ASK WHY?
Sooooo Jeezy,Gucci,50,Dr.Dre,The Game,Ice Cube,Scarface are all irreverent now a days?smh
