This is a topic i found on twitter via @OfficiallyIce
Ok well not necessarily killed hip hop due to it has a few resurrections with some of the new artist out there but what (artist, trend, fad) put hip hop in it current state?
the south killed hip hop
"my Glock hole bigger than Nicki Minaj camel toe"-Rick Ross
50 cent killed hip hop
i dont think it was the south i mean Outkast is considered the south and Andre 3000 is the best thing imo that came from the south
gangster rap didnt necessarily kill hip hop but it did kinda slap it in the face, gangster rap has been out for a long time and hip hop has managed to be relevant during the gangster rap days
even tho i dont really care about buddy i dont think he was responsible for hip hop's current state
I THINK THE ASSASSINATIONS HAD MUCH TO DO WITH IT...
