I am by no means hugely into rap. Quite the opposite, really, but in certain cases I can respect the...intensity a good rap song can bring.
But I was talking to a friend recently about how all the new rappers I can think of seem super soft, and my friend pointed out "That's pretty much rap now". Most of the original gangsta rappers are retired, or producers, or dead, and there don't seem to be many people filling in that gangsta rap void.
Are all the big rappers really just Drake from here on out, because pop and silly love songs always sell? I know there's the occasional Kanye or M.I.A. to keep things interesting, but most of the big name rappers I can think of lately just seem lame.
