Is BROCKHAMPTON Paving The Way For New Hip-Hop

Morti Viventear – Lovecraftmanship Album Review

I find instrumental music to be one of my favorite genres. The artist is free to create intricate soundscapes without having to structure it around a vocalist.

Recently, a lot of people have began to question whether hip-hop is more popular than rock. This post was inspired by a video posted by the YouTube channel Dead End Hip Hop. DEHH is comprised of four panelists that conduct album reviews on classic and current albums, discuss topics that revolve around hip hop artists and also take questions from fans. I’ve been watching their content for quite a while and have thoroughly enjoyed it. This video in particular discusses whether hip hop is more popular than rock. It immediately piqued my interest because I fell in love with rock and metal music far before I started appreciating and loving hip hop. This post is sort of a response to some of their comments, and bringing up some other points as to why hip hop is more popular than rock. I definitely recommend you watch the video they did first so that you can hear all of their points, they bring up some great ones.  Continue reading Is Hip-Hop More Popular Than Rock – A Brief Commentary
