Hip Hop legend Jay Z appears to hate the direction music, especially in the world of hip hop is headed. What happened to the days of lyrical content and metaphorical punch lines that touched on the everyday lives of people? It was a musical fulfillment that not just your friends, but family members could also vibe to because they shared very relatable stories.

Take us back to the days of real music:

Jigga told a New York paper, “We have to find our way back to true emotion. This is going to sound so sappy but love is the only thing that stands the test of time.

“The Miseducation of Lauryn Hill was all about love. Andre 3000, The Love Below. Even NWA, at its core, that was about love for a neighborhood.

“We’re chasing a lot of sounds now, but I’m not hearing anyone’s real voice. The emotion of where you are in your life. The mortgage scandal. People losing their jobs. I want to hear about that.”

Jay Z believes contemporary rap songs have lost the Heart and Soul that Hip Hop once was build on. As a rapper, spending time constructing lyrics and meaningful lyrics, has been lackluster to say the least. Instead of rappers trying to keep up with the latest gimmick, it would probably serve them best if they would focus on the original elements of the art form of music to help sustain their careers.

Let’s bring back the feeling Hip Hop once gave us! To all the newcomings in the game, help Jay Z and all the true Hip Hop fans fall back in Love with Hip Hop all over again!
