    The south has played a major part in the evolution of hiphop and has birthed much greatness and a few legends.

    The millennial kids'/babies' demographic have ruined and are continuously ruining hiphop culture. They don't even respect or know the history of hiphop culture.

    The south didn't ruin hip hop. People in other regions blatantly biting and trying to keep up with a lot of what the south did since 2005 without any real understanding, finesse or genuine talent ruined hip hop.

    Lil Jon and his fuck boy friends started the decline and now it's what it is now, mumble mouth bastards running around everywhere. Crunk and snap music era had everyone putting out bullshit. Some of these lil fucks talking about they don't care about lyricism. Everybody wanna be a trap rapper, there was no originality coming outta there, it was all trash.

    Then it reached a point of no return when this shit happened

    I think the commercialization of rap is what "ruined hip hop"

    And i think the east coast is to blame for that.

    The Tradational Boom Bap New York City Hip Hop Sound & Culture died at the end of 2006 ... as Nasir Jones did the sermon with this classic album.... From 1973 - 2006 is the Old Testament of Hip Hop
    11AF17C8-BE9A-4658-98D5-C0EA79AAE5E0.jpeg

    From 2007 and currently Hip Hop has evolved production and sonically... Atlanta is currently where the Hip Hop Culture lives ... The South did not kill Hip Hop ... New York City Hip Hop just Self Destruct... we are currently in the New Testament of Hip Hop and Atlanta leds the pave in the road of Hip Hop

    Not respecting and knowing history is definitely a factor. Last generation in our culture to really know and respect the ledge was probably the one right afte mine (I'm 34). These kids now though....wooo!

    It's sad too cause you can't know where to take something next unless you've known where it's been.

    This is why rock and jazz for the longest time had the best younger artists because those young ones were always mindful and aware of what their predeccessors did.

    There's many reasons, it mainly comes down to the business/money.

    Record execs kept signing niggas solely because they sound like the nigga who's hot at the time.

    Internet game fucked it up, allowing lil niggas to make music from home without real producers (not beat makers), a&r's. Shit A&R's are nonexistent in hiphop these days.

    The list goes on.

    It is. You may not like it. Most of us don't but it is. I mean would you say that Young MC wasn't hip hop? Difference is back then even the hackneyed shit had some merit cause there was respect behind it.
