i usually act like i like today’s rappers such as uzi and even older ones like travis scott but honestly i don’t… i miss the rap from two to three years ago… that’s where my fondest memories come from, that’s my childhood, and that music back then has meaning… i was going back and listening to some of the stuff i liked back then and it hit me… even yachty’s verse on i spy about “balls in his nutsack” has more meaning than half of the music today… i love kyle’s music and the weeknd’s music for this exact reason… it shows emotion, it shows feeling, and most of all, it takes actual work to make it. none of you know this, but i’m also an aspiring rapper… i was writing something today and i challenged myself to not use anything that didn’t have meaning… that was honestly really hard to do… today’s rappers bypass that by just talking about drugs, sex, and watches, which is pathetic. i guess i’m just saying that i really miss when rap could be happy and make you feel good, when it had an actual meaning behind the lyrics… i want your opinions on this. tell me what you think. i know most of you don’t listen to rap, so i have a few songs for you to listen to to get you acquainted with the genre. the meaningful songs are “kyle - doubt it” (or i spy, either one is really good but i spy has a verse from lil yachty and that part of it is trash) and “the weeknd - die for you.” the new, trashy music is “lil pump - designer” and “lil uzi vert - for real.”
again, let me know your opinions on this because it can’t just be me that thinks this.
