I really think that rap (commercial pop mess) will implode and eat itself alive ala disco. Hip-Hop will remain though, going the way of jazz music, rock, country, and blues.
Well put. I agree. Morons like "Jay-Z" and "50-Cent" and other self-proclaimed 'gangstaz' will go the way of the dinosaurs, hopefully sooner rather than later. That said, I've an immense respect for hip-hop and artists with talented rhythmic abilities and who have something to say besides "me and my crew we gonna blaze yo' pad." If you don't have anything worthwhile to say, don't open your mouth in the first place.
