The Popularity Of Hip Hop
If we are talking about today’s world, everybody listens to hip-hop. Hip-hop has become incredibly popular. Case in point, there is now a hop musical: Hamilton Broadway play (Hip Hop Musical) It seems there has never been more interest in this genre. It has become almost as popular as pop music. It actually plays over and over on the radio stations. I’ve heard so many people blare it in the hallways and in their cars. So many wannabe rappers have started creating accounts on many platforms which are now rising to the mainstream. But, I find myself asking the question, why does everyone like it so much?
Along with pop music, hip-hop has become one of the most popular genres in the United States of America, because the youth have started loving it. Some people happen to think that it is a crazy type of music, while others love the rebellious theme. The exact rebellious nature of hip-hop music is not loved by a lot of people, because they feel that it influences the wrong kind of behaviour in teenagers who are listening to it. Rock music was also considered rebellious for a time, but then it became kind of music that everybody started respecting and everyone loved it.
There was a song that was released by Childish Gambino called “This Is America”. This song exploded, and it became a sensation. It exploded because of all of the huge gun debate that was going on, and I would also like to point out that this song is very catchy. A lot of people have said that it is like politics that you can actually dance to.
A lot of people have noticed that rappers do not even have to sing, if they make the right kinds of noises in the songs and if it sounds good, people start liking it. I find this to be very interesting. This is exactly the kind of over-generalisation that we should be talking about.
Right now, Kid Cudi, Kendrick Lamar, Donald Glover and Childish Gambino or some of the huge names in the world of hip-hop.
Every single time one of these people put out a song, they make millions of dollars, because there is so much demand for their music.
A lot of people have said that Kid Cudi’s music is actually liked by a lot of people but, it is not mainstream. A lot of people have confirmed that it is absolutely fantastic and that the people producing it are very talented indeed.
I feel we should all give hip-hop a chance; we might actually like it.
