Good article, with lots of insight into the state of hip hop. As much as I love Kendrick and J-Cole as technical storytellers and well thought out concepts, is it the fact we have very few conscious rappers today and original at the same time breaking into the mainstream that sets them apart. As the industry is filled with popcorn hip hop, not that I dislike it, it does serve its purpose in some ways.
