Hip-Hop Making It's Mainstream Return (NSFW video)

Over the past 10 years, mainstream Hip-Hop has degenerated into the retarded step-child of what it once was. Instead of creating music from life experiences, fun times, and ill rhymes, it has become a race to see who could feature the most artists, show off the most money, and rhyme the word truck with another truck (that rhyme is fresh, son). It's f***ing stupid. What was worse, is that that these mainstream artists began to believe that they were the best of Hip-Hop (I'm looking at you Lil' Wayne).

While I can't deny the catchiness of the music, it isn't Hip-Hop it's over-hyped Pop music with enough auto-tune to give a robot an erection. Yes, this same rant has been made for years and years, but there happens to be a light at the end of the tunnel. It seems the music industry is finally starting to recognize the artists that have stuck with classic Hip-Hop. With the recent mainstream interest in Odd Future and Childish Gambino, there's still hope! Now it's up to you, listener, to prove that this style of Hip-Hop is still a valid form of mainstream music.

With that aside, the new Childish Gambino video above is freakin' rad.

  1. Not really sure how this is a return to classic hip-hop, unless you mean a return to hyper-masculine, hyper-aggressive, hyper-sexualized and relatively clever rhymes. Call me when this guy actually has a message.
