Lil Yachty Discusses Destroying Hip-Hop

This should be good.

2016 was really the breakout year for artists like Lil Yachty (mumble rappers alike who aren’t deemed as “rappers”). Yachty sat with MTV and made a pressing case for himself as to why he feels he’s not “destroying hip-hop” with his brand of music and culture, while others think the total opposite:

“People say I’m destroying Hip Hop, and, I’m like, there’s so much Hip Hop, and it’s so popular, so I don’t know why I have the power to destroy it,” he says. “It’s ridicolous! Also, I feel like there are genres within genres everywhere else, like in rock — you don’t hear Slipknot complaining about Paramore not being hardcore enough. But Hip Hop has to be one type of thing — hardcore, street, storytelling, the struggle — or it’s not real. I don’t get that. People bashed Drake off the fact he didn’t suffer. Who cares? Do you like the music or not.

“I’m not a joke. I’m not making fun of Hip Hop or being disrespectful. It’s not play rap, it’s as real as anything.”

What do you think? Is a new generation thing or is it really just really “bad” rap?
