Top Ten Annoying Things About Old Hip Hop Heads

The Top Ten

1 They say hip hop is dead

Technically it is. Most people don't know what Hip-Hop is. Rapping isn't Hip-Hop. It's just an element of Hip-Hop. - RobertWisdom

Old rap is better but yeah, there are lot's of good new school rappers. - DarkBoi-X

2 They think all the new rappers suck

Old Rap>New Rap. But there are still good new rappers like Kendrick Lamar, Tyler The Creator, Earl Sweatshirt, etc. - DarkBoi-X

And the new kids have no respect and think all the pioneers suck. - RobertWisdom

Even though I don't like him, I'm pretty sure 6ix9ine has respect for the OGs. I dunno about Lil Yachty or Uzi but I've never heard of them dissing any OG. Get your facts right, there are tons of people who still love old school rap.

@RobertWisdom I know plenty of people my age who listen to Tupac, Nas, Biggie, Ice Cube and other old school rappers. You're wrong if you think most young people have no repect for the OGs.

3 They only like rappers from their generation

And the new kids only like rap from their generation. - RobertWisdom

I like rappers from both generations. In the old days, I like Nas, Eminem, 2Pac, Lil Wayne (fight me! ), B.I.G and Dr. Dre, and in the new generation I like J Cole, Joyner Lucas, Logic, Kendrick Lamar, Nicki Minaj (fight me, again! ) and Trippie Redd. But I’m 13 and I like all these rappers, old or new. And what annoys me for the most part is that they say Young Money (Lil Wayne, Nicki Minaj, etc.) killed hip-hop, when Lil Uzi Vert, Lil Yachty, 6IX9INE, Migos, Famous Dex, Young Thug, Blueface, NBA YoungBoy and 21 Savage killed hip-hop. Lil Wayne and Nicki Minaj aren’t mumble rappers! Mumble rappers destroyed hip-hop!

4 They refuse to accept the evolution of hip hop

Wrong! We accept the evolution, it's the de-evolution of Hip-Hop we refuse to accept. - RobertWisdom

Well yeah, it is what it is. - ParasN2000

Sorry to sound like an oldhead here but Mumble Rap ain't "evolution". If anything it's de-evolution. - DarkBoi-X

5 They hate rappers that aren't "lyrical"

Not an oldhead but I think the greatest rappers should be lyrical. Not necessarily have to be lyrical to be good as I do like rappers who aren't that lyrical but to me Top 5 GOAT rappers should be lyrical. That's all. - DarkBoi-X

BS. Ice Cube and Scarface are considered legends. - RobertWisdom

But it does. You said "old Hip-Hop heads" hate rappers that aren't lyrical. Ice Cube and Scarface weren't lyrical emcees and are considered legends by old heads. - RobertWisdom

Some rappers that aren’t very lyrical can make catchy songs. - Userguy44

6 They call 6ix9ine a mumble rapper

Mumble rapper or not, he sucks. - Userguy44

Because he is - MrGuyDudeMan

I hate 6ix9ine but he is not a mumble rapper. How can he be a mumble rapper if he screams? - DarkBoi-X

Not sure if he's a mumble rapper but he is garbage. And he's irrelevant anyway. - RobertWisdom

He makes the mumble rappers look good.

7 They complain about rappers who flex with jewelry when rappers in the 90s were doing the same

But they actually had skills. - RobertWisdom

True. Lot's of old school rappers flexed too but as @RobertWisdom said, they actually could rap. - DarkBoi-X

8 They most likely haven't listened to every new rapper

Nobody has listened to every new rapper. - RobertWisdom

Why would they? It's a waste of time. Stick to old school rap. - RogerMcBaloney

I think the term you're looking for is that they don't focus on any of the good new rappers like $uicideBoy$ or Tyler The Creator - DarkBoi-X

They should listen to Trippie Redd. The best choice for your first listen to a new rapper. - Userguy44

9 They only like gang-related songs

This is completely false. Lol.I wouldn't consider "If I Ruled The World" by Nas a "gang related song. - RobertWisdom

True, I know rappers who get called out for not being “gangsta”. - jameshoward

10 They get easily offended

The Contenders

11 They complain about trap music

Because it killed the creativity of rap. Everybody has to do trap in order to be successful in music and that's bs. Also, Trap has gone on long enough and it's time to die out. - RobertWisdom

Well trap is ass

Deal with it, it exists and is popular. Complaining about it won't make it disappear. So either ignore it (it's not hard to) or just suck it up and stop whining.

I suggest these oldhead listen to Cloud Rap. A genre that takes influence from Trap. Some good artists in the genre are Bones, Ghostemane and $uicideBoy$ - DarkBoi-X

12 They only like New York or California rappers

At this point, it doesn't really matter what state or city a rapper comes from. - jameshoward

Again, Scarface was mentioned as a legend. - RobertWisdom

Or Southern rappers but yeah, either from California, New York or the South is what oldheads like. - DarkBoi-X

13 They stopped listening to Hip Hop when 2pac died
14 They think Hip Hop died in 2007 when Soulja Boy's Crank That became a hit but ignore many good rappers that came after.

Tyler The Creator, Kendrick Lamar(Although he had mixtapes before 2007), $uicideBoy$, Ghostemane, Denzel Curry, Bones, Earl Sweatshirt, etc are all good new age rappers - DarkBoi-X

15 They think there were no bad rappers in the 90s

Vanilla Ice, MC Hammer, Insane Clown Posse - jameshoward
