Nas Has Something To Say About The Generational Divide

The war between the old and new is increasingly toxic. Nas has a few words for all.

(AllHipHop News) Nas has something to say about the generational gap in Hip-Hop.

As Hip-Hop has changed and morphed, we have seen disrespectful comments and sentiments being thrown back and forth. The disrespect of Tupac has become commonplace and the condemnation of "mumble rap" is the norm.

Nas has released a new song with DJ Esco and Future to represent progress. Check out Nasir's commentary.

Today's game is as big as it gets. It seems like nobody gettin along tho. It's a big enough game to do what you do and let ya talent speak for itself. This new cat over here says something bad about Pac. This older guy gets mad at the new guy. Or "Nas ain't hip hop. Migos and Future are Hip Hop" Neil Diamond x Jack White have a Concert coming up together. Gettin it done.
White musicians have that freedom and are praised for coming together... more power to them and I'm a fan of it.
why can't black artist do that and make it cool? We are all artists, let's all evolve together. Walk With Me. WALK THRU.

Everybody didn't agree with the Queensbridge legend, despite his positive outlook.

"That's cool, future still trash despite the motivational speech," One person said. Others queried when Nas's album was dropping.

Thats false, some are retaliating, some are offenders. This phenomenon isnt new, Nelly vs. Krs One, Soulja Boy dissin Nas, matter fact Jeezy dissin Nas. Our society has an issue period with the youth as a whole respecting their own culture, history,etc. so its no suprise this attitude is prevalent in the artists. The 90's rappers advanced what the 80's rappers were doing. they revered the principles of MCing,etc., they studied. these kids have zero attention spans and an entitled perspective. At the same note, some of the old heads are hating, some are correct in checking the younger dudes. We have regress instead of progress for a reason. America as large and blacks especially are ahistorical in attitude and this explains why all the art forms, not just music have all fallen into this mediocre, predictable slump... when you dont know history, u doomed to repeat it. and in the case of these new rappers who dont respect or know the history, they are doomed to think they are innovative when they arent..

Sorry, Illseed but thats not "facts" at all.

(continued) wasn't up to par, but 90 rappers never retaliated they just made dope shiit. This generation is trying to be different but going about it the wrong way.

The youngstas are only retaliating. Their predecessors have been critical of the current skill level so in return they diss everything that is old school. The 80s cats thought that the 90s stuff wasn
