So the other day I was talking with Brian about Hip Hop/Rap and how it seems that there is always a crew/label that has a run for a couple of years, and then something happens where it losses it’s strong hold; and then a new one emerges as the one everyone wants to be a part of.
So in my opinion, the mid 90’s were held down by Bad Boy. You know Biggie, Junior Mafia (Little Kim), Mase, the Lox….
Then there was Death Row they battled it out with Bad Boy during their era, you know: Pac, Dre, Snoop…
For a brief period it was Ruff Ryders..DMX, Eve…..
Then Early 2000’s it was Rockafella Records…Jay Z, Kanye, Beanie Seagel, Freeway, Memphis Bleek …….
Now I’m not saying that any of these labels I mentioned are dead, but it just seems that the amount of hits they are putting out has definitely slowed down from when it was their hay day, and that they are no longer running it. So in my opinion , I believe that the new leaders in the will be Young Money. They will be the new monsters and the label that every rapper will want to be on……
Shit as much as I was not a fan of Little Wayne, dude is on right now. Drake, Nikki, man they doing it.
So in closing, I believe Young Money is winning right now!!!
What do you guys think, did I miss anything?
Live Fast, Die Young..Carp Diem!!!
