Music has always been one of the things to help me deal with different situations going on in my life… from deaths of loved ones to celebrating a accomplishment. There’s always the right song and perfect beat to fit your mood. Without any doubt for me hip hop is the genre of music that I’ve always held close. Being a 80’s baby you can understand where I’m coming from. When I say todays hip hop or rap music is just different… I’m not bashing any of this generation of hip hop artist but as I listen to the music I don’t get that same feeling like I use to. With that being said hip hop has comeback with a force partly due to artist like Kendrick Lamarr and J Cole just to name a few. So I’m here today to give you the names of a couple of artist and albums that I feel are helping with bringing that real hip hop back to the masses. Nick Grant is someone I’ve been listening to for about a a year… his latest project titled Dreamin Out Loud is truly amazing ! With dope production , crazy flow and ridiculous rhyme skills it will not be hard to become a believer in Nick Grant. Check out the track 96 Bulls and you will see exactly what I’m talking about. Next Up Jay Rock TDE owns newest single WIN ! If you know anything about TDE then you know ever artist in their camp stands on their own. Jay Rock never disappoints i hate making comparisons but he definitely reminds of a Memphis Bleek. The track Win is nothing shortly of a motivational uplifting banger. It’s great to see and hear the music getting back to the essence of it all. As Kid Cudi once said ” this is the sound track to my life ” I just hope todays artist continue to push the culture forward and never let this art die. So many people including myself need music to get us through difficult and happy times… I’m confident with the few artist I’ve named and countless others that are bring hip hop back we will be fine and so will this thing called hip hop that I love.
