What happened to real hip hop?
I'm talking about shit like this

Biggie & Raekwon - Still Strugglin - YouTube

Talking about real social/economic issues, etc. I'm tired of hearing about mansions, Hennessy, and bullshit. There's gotta be some real shit still out there, but I can't find it.

Please, help an old man out whose lost touch with the real shit

You know... My parents ask what happened to real music back when I was a kid and these artist were popular. Then they'd tell me about Billy Holiday, The temptations, and a bunch of people I read about in history books. My reply was... "Nothing happened, you just got old."

Quick reply, but I'd like to say that save for a few spots every now and then, Biggie was largely apolitical at the very most. I feel like Bad Boy has pretty much always been a pop label, and most of Biggies material is without irony - about the usual soulless trappings that make most modern hip hop so meaningless. I feel like that subject matter is even a little racist and detrimental towards the black community as a whole with the caraciture like gangster attitudes and lifestyles portrayed within. Modern rap is infinitely worse too.

I feel like the 90's definitely hit some peaks and special times that just haven't been really been often matched since. All that said, I'm also a MASSIVE 2Pac fan and will gladly back it up... :wavetowel2:

Look into Kendrick Lamar. Checkout his older mixtapes and his newly released debut album. Great beats and lyricism not to mention real subject matter.
