    There’s a lot of middle class trend followers at my school that have started to listen to rap but I was wondering if it’s because they actually think it’s good or is it because it’s popular

    There's definitely a lot of middle class kids in my school only listening to it to seem #edgy as well lol

    But hip hop is a brilliant genre, & there's some really intelligent and thought-provoking stuff out there, especially the older stuff as someone's already been saying ^ I think you can kinda distinguish between who's genuine in their love for the genre and who's not by the kinda stuff they're listening to - without sounding pretentious!!

    It's a shame that it's getting watered down and popularised as much as it is

    Some rap artists such as Eminem, Logic, J Cole and even Post Malone make some really sound music. Some of it is quite meaningful too and it's not just all about drugs, money, women etc. I love rap music because the beat really motivates me but people like Lil Pump aren't really my type - the stuff they rap about and their music in general is nothing compared to some rappers. I guess it comes down to personal taste but mainstream rap music nowadays is so misogynistic and is so much less thought-provoking that I can't imagine many people genuinely like it.

    Tru-they've had some pretty big hits as well. It just frustrates me that they use so much autotune. Because of where I've grown up, I listen to grime and understand it, even relate to in some ways. And all the stuff they tlk about in their songs are real. It's not just about some car, or a girl; it's different.
