According to AllHipHop.com they have come up with a list of disturbing trends in rap that need to be addressed. If they go unchecked, these self-destructive tendencies will continue to harm a culture that has helped so many. And that is the last thing that anybody wants, especially those people (myself included) who are proof positive that Hip-Hop can change lives for the better. Check it out here…
5). Self-Declared Classics: Rap is very competitive, and so confidence is essential. Yet, to declare your own work a classic, that’s presumptuous even by Hip-Hop standards.
4). Biting: Biting rhymes in Hip-Hop isn’t anything new, but, nonetheless, it is still something that’s been going on a long time and is counterproductive to the authenticity that Hip-Hop prides itself on.
3). Calling Yourself God: Similar to biting, Hip-Hop’s references to religion have been around for a long time.
2). Face Tattoos: To be fair, a “bad” tattoo is subjective, and so what some might perceive that way could be viewed as “good” by others and/or it has the ability to be covered up.
