im not even disagreeing i mean monetized hiphop gets whiter and homogenous and that’s a huge bummer and i think there is an important discussion to be had there but there are so many different underground rap/afropunk/dance kindsa music now, more diverse and queer and inclusive than ever, and having the ‘is hiphop dead?’ conversation over and over again just shows how out of touch ppl are… like young ppl are moving on to completely new styles of music and ppl still talkin about how much they hate pop music and the days of ‘real hiphop’ are gone
Are Millennials Sick and Tired of ‘Are Millennials’ News Titles?
"So what else do you do to the largest politicized tech savvy generation? You gaslight them, flood the media with news stories that victim blame us for our failures to not turn out to be good little capitalists. Lower our expectation so that $30,000 salaries begin to look good. Create movies and shows that shame young adults forced to move back with their parents because housing prices and wages are not aligned, what do you do other than to try to beat our confidence so that we numb ourselves with drugs, booze, sex, and mindless entertainment so we won’t connect the dots and put together that it’s the system that is fucked up–that capitalism is the crisis and it was the hippies turned yuppies that sold us out."
I see no lies though
