i get it. i'd imagine when you're a real adult and like have a regular balanced mature perspective on life, a majority of rap loses the appeal. i don't think i'll grow out of it tbh. and trust me man i don't listen exclusively to ****ty rap lol. i like **** that falls under the "conscious" category too, which i think is the only thing "oldheads" see the appeal in. that's not even a slight diss or anything. i think when you peeped in the rap thread i was going thru a phase of looking into 2012-2015 miami rap scene, which is a lot of dumb lofi **** for the most part. definitely realize that it was some awful music that most would render unlistenable, but it made me happy lol. there's tons of good rap right now. honestly 2018 is the best year for rap in forever.
