    Why

    Hip Hop is the only genre where even the mature fanbase is like “nah b you old as fuck keep it moving”

    You dont see this in any other genre and its sad as fuck

    Hip hop is also the only genre that doesn't embrace growing up/ maturing.

    Niggas 40 still trying to dress like 20 yr olds

    Hip hop is the only genre that gets it right, the fuck I wanna listen to an almost 40 year old popping pills and drinking lean. I'm not interested in old dope heads dropping a wack 16

    Jay is an anomaly, I don't expect that from anyone else. When it's time to be put out to pasture go quietly and don't fight it.

    Cause I never listened to KRS...when he was hot I was still in diapers bro. He aint in my generation of rappers.

    Most of those guys from the 80s save maybe LL werent even making relevant music by the time I could really comprehend music for myself.

    So of course im not checking for melle mel and them...

    Biggie the GOAT but if he was still breathing I sure as hell wouldn't want to listen to him rap today. Hip hop has an expiration date, when you hit your 30's it's time to start the next phase of your life.

    You proving my point about Tye lol

    He dressed accordingly

    Most of these niggas would still be wearing oversized averix jackets if they know they wouldn't get roasted to death
