Boom bap hasnt had its day yet, its got to come back, because I really fucking want it too. Need to bring some intelligence and free thinking back to hip hop. Its the ignorant shit that needs to be thrown of a cliff
But not just the beats. The rappers have to have a personality and something unique to spit. If you compare the ones today to the ones we know, they're complete opposites.
 
See? That style is still relevant today! I hope this keeps going so we can finally push today's crap off the cliff.
Of course it's relevant. I hate when people say you have to have a certain sound. If it's hot, it's hot.

In fact I think more lyrical stuff is coming back. I was listening to Gunna's new album 'Wunna'. I was like it's dope, but listen to it 2-3 days in a row n U'll be like wtf is he talking about? Don't get me wrong his music is hot but when I reflect it just doesnt mean a whole lot to me. Music can really touch people souls if you let it. That's why artists like Jay Z, Tupac, Eminem etc are so big because their lyrics are memorable.

Just my opinion.

Ignorance @2GooD Productions has always been an undercurrent in Hip Hop so the current gen reflects what past generations have built up, think how 90s rappers used "keeping it real" as an excuse for their behavior.

Blame @slimegreenbeats whatever current drug(s) rappers abuse for ignorant lyrics coupled w/instant gratification accelerated by tech.

In the 90's rappers were gangsters that wanted to be entertainers, now they are entertainers that want to be gangsters.
I think there has been a negative impact from hip hop on our youth, talking about their real life experiences has glorified it in vulnerable minds and gang culture has become a global phenomenon as a result. By talking about their struggles has inadvertently been glorified and instead of keeping people out of a lifestyle, it has drawn them in.

While maybe some rappers used the phrase "keeping it real" to excuse criminal behaviour, I personally always took it to mean keep it real, be true to yourself and be true to others, be me, dont wear a mask to fit in. Tell it like it is, it goes a very long way to explain why I am the person I am today.

I @2GooD Productions agree about negative impact, and w/regards to gangsters I suggest reading the works of sociologist Mary Pattillo as she explained it as: you have listeners who can listen to what amounts to glorification but not act on what was heard/listened to, listeners who actively participate in glorification via criminality in their neighborhoods, and listeners who are on the edge of the perceived audiences' message.

I completely agree, the drug thing doesn't work and is bad for health. It's kinda obviously sad tbh. A lot of these major artists are really just puppets, that's why they're signed so young. Young artists are easier to mold and influence.
