  • Hip-hop will never die.

    If you study hip-hop closely, it’s easy enough to discern that one generation influences the next. Hip-hop heads from the 80s still reminisce about the Bridge Wars and the creation of Run-DMC. Fast forward ten more years, and 90s babies will tell you that rappers like Tupac, Biggie, DMX

    , Nas, Wu-Tang, Outkast, and Jay-Z were the leaders of the culture. Jump ahead another ten years, and the seeds of the early 2000s point to a slew of Lil Wayne mixtapes and the dominance of Atlanta as the defining hip-hop moment. Each generation of hip-hop not only paves the way for what will follow, but plants seeds for it. Looking at where hip-hop culture is now, the next generation will be the most diverse group of artists ever. Hip-hop continues to grow as a culture-- in fact, it continues to take over the culture, and by the culture, we mean pop culture -- with new stories and sounds being accepted and disseminated to markets that may have been overlooked in the past. So, what will the next generation hold? It's all about niche markets.

    A decade after Biggie passed away, Lil Wayne went on an unprecedented mixtape run in the mid 2000s. The Drought series, and the Dedication series, are legendary. Wayne assassinated beat after beat, with his signature croaky drawl and assertive confidence. A self-declared “pill poppin’ animal,” Wayne was infamous for his drug use, and incidentally, vocal about it. Lean (a concoction made from cough syrup, pain relievers, candy, and soda) was commercialized world-wide by Lil Wayne. I recall kids my age wanting to concoct home-made lean, and pop pills, because they heard it on a mixtape Weezy track. Many of those kids grew up to become the drug-obsessed rappers of the last five years. Wayne's addictive music helped usher in a shift from hip-hop culture exalting drug dealers, to yearning to experiment with drugs heavily. Not to mention that Wayne essentially commercialized face tattoos in hip-hop as well, a trend that has taken over the culture.

    Then, there are the kids of Kanye West. Kanye’s influence over hip-hop in the 00s birthed some of the greatest artists of this generation. Drake, Big Sean, and Chance the Rapper are just a few examples of the seeds that ‘Ye planted with albums like College Dropout and 808 & Heartbreaks. The marriage of electronic music and hip-hop in America can be attributed to Kanye as well. Prior to “Stronger,” hearing electronic music on hip-hop radio was rare. A decade later, electronic music and rap music have become adopted cousins. Yeezy (and Pharrell

    ) effectively made electronic music marketable in urban culture.

    In the next ten years, hip-hop will evolve into a multi-genre platform much like Rock ‘n Roll. Soft rock, heavy metal, punk, southern rock, classic rock, etc., there are a plethora of subgenres in Rock 'n Roll because of the diversity of the culture. That diversity comes with maturity. Rap has aged very well, and the maturity of the genre is beginning to open new paths for new voices. There is a lane for everybody in hip-hop culture. Some people claim that hip-hop has changed, and that they miss the music of their generations. If you listen closely though, you can hear that this generation is a direct byproduct of the last. Look at the state of hip-hop culture right now, and it’s easy to see that rap will continue to branch out into more obscure and niche markets as the years pass by. Artists like Young Thug or Childish Gambino will influence the creation of new subgenres that cannot currently be speculated upon.
    The future of hip-hop will be diverse, unique, and wide-spread. Hip-hop will never die.

    Despite how you feel about 6ix9ine, it's hard to deny all that he's accomplished in a short amount of time. He finessed his viral antics into Billboard charting singles and working with some major artists in the game. After the release of his debut project, Tekashi managed to have five songs simultaneously charting on the Billboard Hot 100 and debuted at number four on the Billboard 200. A few weeks later and 6ix9ine has made another major accomplishment in his career.
    Tekashi 6ix9ine's "GUMMO" has officially gone platinum, according to RIAA standards. The song marks his first platinum record and officially makes him a platinum selling artist. The release of the remix with Offset

     definitely helped bump streaming numbers up. It's only a matter of time until his other two major singles hit platinum status.

    The rapper took to Instagram to share the news. "TAG EVERYONE WHO HATE ON ME ?? I live for this shit. KOODA GOLD KEKE GOLD Everything platinum," he wrote.
    With two gold plaques already underneath his belt, he's definitely about to have a good year if he keeps his momentum up.
    Over the past few days, the rapper teased a remix to Rich The Kid

    's "Plug Walk." It's unsure whether it's his next release but it's definitely sounded pretty good. Hopefully, we'll see that release soon.

    Peep his post below.

    During an interview with Billboard

    , Los Angeles-based 03 Greedo

     said that he agrees with Xan's assessment of Pac's music.

    "Do they need a ni**a who can really rap to tell you?" he asked. "Tupac sucks, ni**a. Any type of East Coast, West Coast beef, ni**a's from the East Coast. He's delusional. He's a great actor. Part of his music shit was acting. But ni**a, I got to go to court on Friday, I got a whole metal leg, I'm really from the projects. I really got my 'hood on my face. My first major project is called The Wolf of Grape Street, the gang I'm from. He didn't even say nothing wrong. Tupac was a bitch ass ni**a. I'm a gangsta ni**a. What I say goes. I don't give a fuck if I'm wrong."
    The conversation first steered toward hip-hop's generational divide when Greedo abruptly said, "Don't mention Timbaland," after Billboard editor Carl Lamarre brought the producer's name up.
    "[Timbaland] said that we don't have a lot of producers and we have a lot of beatmakers and kids with a program," Greedo explained. "I don't want to endorse him anymore. Some people should watch what they say because it's a slick shot to somebody you don't even know you're taking a shot to."
    "I don't know if you old, but I hate old people," Greedo continued, expressing his disdain for the older generation of rappers. "I'm 30. Ni**as that have passed my age by like four or five years, after it gets more than that I'm like, 'You a bitch.' You feel me? It's not about old ni**as, but it's about old ni**as from those years. That's how the world was, and the world's not like that no more. They keep trying to bring up race in my interviews and shit, and I don't go through that no more. I told like three different white boy interviews like, if I come in to see you and you got these sweats on and dirty shoes and you like you're the boss?"
    Using Lil Xan as an example for the mistreatment of younger artists by the older generation, Greedo said, "If you see Lil Xan walk in, are you gonna say he's some artist or some dumbass, you know what I'm saying? That's no diss, but that's how it is. This has nothing to do with race anymore, but old ni**as just don't know about paying homage, bro. Like, have an open ear. Gucci is somebody I look up to because he knows to stay in touch with the youth."

    2008:Rick Ross

    , having built up a name for himself with the his platinum debut album Port of Miami two years prior, dropped his sophomore effort Trilla on March 11, 2008 with Def Jam Recordings, Slip-n-Slide Records and Poe Boy Entertainment. With classic tracks like "The Boss" and "Maybach Music" the album was an instant hit among fans and shot to the number one spot on the Billboard 200 list, and sold nearly 200,000 copies in its first week. Ross tapped a number of big name features for 'Trilla' such as Jay-Z, R. Kelly, T-Pain, Lil Wayne, Nelly and Jeezy.

    He previously released three songs off of Trilla before the album's official debut, teasing fans with "The Boss" featuring T-Pain, "Speedin'" featuring R. Kelly, and "Here I Am" featuring Nelly and Avery Storm.
    Ross said at the time that he got the inspiration for the album's title from hearing legendary Southern artists like Bun B and Pimp C use the word "trill" and put his own spin on it. He was inspired by Michael Jackson's album Thriller and transformed it into hip-hop with Trilla.
    Rozay has stayed busy in the ever since, releasing seven albums over the last ten years, the most popular being 'eflon Don in 2010 and God Forgives, I Don't in 2012. Aside from his musical success, he's also proved himself as a businessman, launching a line of beard care products 

    and trying his hand in the marijuana industry


    Ross' physical health has been of concern recently, after the rapper was found unconscious at his Miami home and rushed to the hospital

     on March 1. He  has previously suffered from seizures, but this time around, it was reported as a possible case of pneumonia. Fortunately, Ross was released from the hospital after spending four days there, and was recently spotted shopping with his daughters.

    Here's to Trilla and hoping we can expect more classics from Rick Ross in the future.

  • Photographer to hip-hop stars, Nitin Vadukul, dies at 52

    [Image: gPE3eSd.jpg]

    (NYTIMES) - When Nitin Vadukul photographed hip-hop artists, he gave Eminem a chain saw, captured LL Cool J morphing into a superhero and portrayed Missy Elliott as Neo, the protagonist of the movie The Matrix.
    Vadukul's photography came to prominence in the late 1990s, just as hip-hop was gaining a mainstream presence, and his work reflected that evolution: His cinematic, dreamlike portraits broke from the gritty frankness with which photographers had been portraying hip-hop artists - on the streets or in performance - since the genre's beginnings in the 1970s.
    He died at 52 on Feb 17 in Manhattan. His brother, Max, said the cause was colorectal cancer, which had spread to the liver.

    Armed with Photoshop and surrealistic creativity, Vadukul (pronounced vah-DOO-kull) might use ghostly effects or incorporate allusions, in one case to World War II.
    For the January 2000 cover of The Source, then the leading hip-hop magazine, he surrounded Jay-Z with skyscraper gargoyles and thinly attired futuristic models - references to the classic 1927 film Metropolis, Fritz Lang's depiction of the clash between man and machines.
    Vadukul armed Eminem with a chain saw for the magazine's July 2000 cover, evoking his berserker-like persona as a horror movie villain. Afterward, the tool-qua-weapon was a recurring bit at Eminem concerts and became a part of his iconography.

  • Countdown To HipHopDX At SXSW: MAESTRO

    [Image: D1IhPWz.jpg]

    Southside Chicago rapper M A E S T R O is no newcomer when it comes to the entertainment industry. With more than two decades of experience in the business, the 26-year-old has made a buzz in almost all of his artistic endeavors. He has acting credits from shows such as The Wire (where he played Randy), Cold Case, and more recently the Comedy Central show Drunk History where he played Louis Armstrong.
    But he didn’t start out in the music industry as a rapper. He has earlier experience with creating EDM music such as club hits “For You” with Dzeko & Torres, which has more than 5 million Spotify streams. With producing being one of his many talents, he created “Groovy” for Famous Dex and Dice Soho and even played piano on rap legend Nas’ song “Life is Good.”
    In 2017, M A E S T R O’s creative talents directed him to the world of rap when he released his singles “Which One Which” and “Woke Up.”
    His forthcoming debut mixtape, Wav God, will be released this year.
    HipHopDX chatted with M A E S T R O before he hits our Rap Rising showcase at SXSW stage this year.

    HipHopDX: Have you performed at SXSW before? 
    First time performing at SXSW. Excited and appreciate HipHopDX for the opportunity.
     What are you most excited about performing at the festival?
    I’m mostly excited to see how the crowd reacts to the new music also connecting with other artists who I might not have had the chance to connect with if it wasn’t for SXSW.
    Do you plan on watching other performances? 
    Def wanna check out Buddy, J.I.D, the homie Kodie Shane, Madeintyo, Maxo Kream, Smokepurpp just to name a few. But also keeping my eyes open to discover any new artist who out there also.
    What’s been the best and/or worst part of preparing for the performances?
    I’d say just making sure you get the flow of the show right is most important. Performing new records for people who might not be familiar yet ain’t always easy lol so you gotta find a way to lock in the crowd early and I think song selection is a big part of that.
    What was your first paid gig?
    It’s crazy — I been in entertainment so long I don’t really remember what my first paid gig was lol. Just know it probably came around the age of 5 and I ain’t slowed down since.
    What was the best article you’ve ever read in HipHopDX? Did you agree or disagree with it?
    Shameless self-promotion my fav article gotta be the one you guys wrote on my last video release

    . Def agreed with everything on that one.

    If you’ve watched The Breakdown, what was your favorite episode? Did you agree or disagree with it?
    I love Real Hip Hop vs. Fake Hip Hop 


     I like them because not only did I learn a lot about Hip Hop from watching it, but it also addresses a lot of stereotypes about different artist and the genre as a whole. Def feel like this is something more people should watch before commenting on Hip Hop and the culture.
    If you could let your fans know one interesting fact about yourself what would it be?
    I started piano lessons at 4 so I’m classically trained. Also, Maestro is my birth name.
