I don't listen to hip hop that much anymore, i actually don't listen to alot of mainstream music.In high I would be so excited to come home and watch 106nPark. Back then they actually showed interviews with artists and showed music videos it was like MTV only much better. Its sad because hip hop just isn't the way it used to be. Artists care more about how much money they have and how many cars they can buy versus their fans and the music. The last straw for me was when I was watching John Q on BET and a commercial for 106nPark comes on and says Justin Bieber is going to be on there. Justin Bieber! Really?! I dislike Justin Bieber. There are alot of people way more talented than him that should have record deals. He treats his staff with disrespect (which I have read from several article sources) and the only reason he is famous is because he made a YouTube video and someone saw dollar signs so hence that is why we even know who Justin Bieber is. If you ask me hip hop is dead and it died a long time ago if you can turn to 106nPark and see someone like Justin Bieber on there. This isn't about race, hell at this point is isn't even about talent obviously. At least put someone on the show that at least represents the hip hop community or at the very least sings hip hop. He isn't even in the hip hop genre! But everyone loves him and he is what everyone is listening to so as they say money talks and BET listened.

yeah i see that, but at the same time things change and personally i like new hip hop, plus i like the older stuff also. i respect your views though. ten years from now it will sound even more different.
appreciate your thoughts and comments. i can understand how we got to new hip hop but i think i'll always love the old hiphop more

I feel ya... This form of hip hop is nothing new, it's just the abundance of it is overwhelming... The balance is not being offered as an option when it comes to mainstream radio and tv but I think with more people turning to the internet that the balance will eventually come back to light... But has Hip Hop sold out? Definitively...No one yet has decided to go against the cookie cutter image as far as mainstream goes... But of course to do that, that artist would have to be willing to grind it out and turn down the deals and side deals that come with going mainstream....
