With Hip Hop/Rap music being on the decline in recent years, is there any artist that can resurrect this genre of music?

Yes. J.Cole and Kendrick Lamar can easily resurrect Rap and make it just as meaningful as it used to be back when Ice Cube, Easy E and Tupac were hot.

I believe that Big K.R.I.T. can resurrect this genre of music. He can do this because of his style and the knowledge he has of the Rap game. When Big K.R.I.T. writes his music, he thinks outside of the box and writes about what some of us may be going through in our day-to-day lives. You won’t find K.R.I.T.’s music resembling the music of other artists such as Lil Yachty, 21 Savage or Lil Lonnie. K.R.I.T. has his own type of soul when it comes to Rap music and it makes him stand out differently than the other rappers.

Lil Boosie’s music has really inspired many artist and people. I love his music and still believe that he is the G.O.A.T. (Greatest of All Time). He speaks the truth in almost all of his music.

I believe Lil Boosie is the perfect artist to bring Rap music back because he always raps about things a person can relate to. He never made up any fake situations to sell albums like so many new rappers do nowadays.

Although a lot of artists in Hip-Hop don’t talk about anything important anymore, there are a select few that have a real message in their work. For instance, J. Cole always has a message behind his songs. Along with J. Cole, our generation has Big Sean. Big Sean’s latest album was a message to his past self about the lessons he’s learned in life. When I think about the resurrection of Hip-Hop, I think of music with a message. If more artists were like J. Cole and Big Sean, I believe Hip-Hop could be saved.
