Just Wondering

In the other thread the younger cats implied that older people come off as being bitter.


How should we discuss Hip Hop without offending the younger generation?

    I think it starts by not generalizing. I have been guilty of it when discussing the younger generation at times.

    The same way modern researchers discuss other cultures, without presupposing superiority of their own culture like their predecessors did. Analyze these things as though there is no right and wrong or good and bad that exists outside of the individual's opinion. Things aren't supposed to be this way or that way, they just are either one way or another, and it's irrespective of any claims as to how things should be.

    It's not very difficult.

    The only thing that matters is the right now. The past lead us to the point that we are currently at. You can live in the past but it gets to a point to where maybe some things like this new era of music ain't for you and that's ok.

    Communicate to those who will listen and to those who don't want to hear what you have to say, sit back and watch them learn the hard way

    You can have opinions but with opinions there needs to be due research and knowledge of how music goes in cycles. For instance i am 27 but many 30 and 40 and 50 somethings ? about how pop or mumble rap is taking over. Yet old ? can't do they research and see the mainstreams best selling artists have quality bars.

    Old ? get mad that ? has been dumbed down for top 40 rap but don't remember that Jazz came through in the early 19000s and then blues pulled up after with a simple yet equally impactful movement. Old ? who try to understand the youngn's but still disagree on some things are respected. But old ? who wanna ? and cry and just down the new ? have opinions that aren't taken seriously.

    I'm 34 you don't see me in here trying to talk about ? I know nothing about. That ? is bogus. I acknowledge that I don't like it. So I ignore it. That's about it.

    Right why give attention to some ? you "don't like". Its still young artist making good music, highlight them so the ones who aren't making the good music can at least see what the bar is.

    This the IC. ? gone give opinions regardless.
