Today in hip hop there is a lot going on. Raekwon is making a comeback. Drake and Gucci Maine is leading the new school, and Snoop Dogg and Jay-Z are showing they still got it.
25 years in hip hop and they’re still putting out number one records. Not too many rappers can do that but for Snoop Dogg and Jay-Z it seems to be no problem. They keep up with the new fashions and trends. Their music is timeless and if you think their going anywere right now, you’re wrong.
Now the question is, will they make way for the up and coming phenom Drake or will he have to create his own path? Who knows, but one thing we do know is that he isn’t going anywere any time soon. Drake is smashing his competition as he continues to give us hit after hit. You can’t turn on the radio or TV without hearing Drake, but no matter how far ahead you are someone always follows and that someone is Gucci Maine.
Gucci Maine is known as the king of the south to some people. He has been trying to reach this status since ’97. Gucci Maine has been blazing the streets with mix tape after mix tape adding up to a total of 90 since ’97. Now he’s where he wants to be. Who says hard work doesn’t pay off?
The last topic I wanna touch on briefly is Raekwon The Chief. Yes, it’s true Raekwon is making a comeback. His new song with Lyfe Jennings is alright, but the source gave his album four mics so I may have to check it out. My name is Marcus and that was hip hop.
