Hip Hop

Tricia Rose made a comment about what Nas and him saying that hip hop is dead. heres an interview on  Nas she said " hip hop is not dead, but its gravely ill." I agree with Tricia because over the years hip hop has changed. it has changed in terms of its meaning. Not to long ago hip hop use to come from the heart, it spoke of the struggles of being a black man better yet a minority. the perfect example of this is tupac and the song i thought of is  changes by tupac his song had meaning.
Today hip hop is about making money. Its based on what sales and today what sales is sex, woman and almost any material thing you can make a song about it sells. perfect example for this is Tyga the songs I have heard from him are about hoe's in one of his songs he says " its one eight seven how im killing these hoes" in another song called by him and travis porter Ayy ladies which i actually enjoyed before i payed attention to the lyrics he says " if you a top notch bitch let me hear you holler bend it over (yeah) touch your toes whip it out (yeah) show them hoes ya bank roll slang it out hit a broke hoe with it poke it out damn shawty you can get it... and it goes on. Hip hop is is ill because its no longer about politics or the struggle of minorities. Its no longer from the heart its more about making money and being on top.
