Eric B and Rakim caused a viral tweet storm talking facts about today’s new era rap scene. Known as one of the grandfather of Hip Hop, music fans can definitely relate to their statement with such acts like Migos, Lil Yachty, Lil Uzi Vert, & Lil Pump taking over the air waves.
You are now witnessing the devolution of rap music. The death of poetry and smoothness, they use this. The absence of a message. The inability to create meaningful change through words and verses, but the worse is, they don’t even know they hurt this artful purpose, it’s tragic.
