Has the Music Changed? 80’s/90’s Hip Hop Vs. Today

80s/90s music is ok, but hip hop has articles saying that millions of records have been sold. See, I’m a young man, so I know nothing of 80s/90s music. But my parents are fans of 80s and 90s music, so I’ve heard of Michael Jackson and many others. -Charles spooney

  1. The music has somewhat changed from the 80/90’s hip hop vs. todays music because they rap about shooting one another in todays music and back in the day 90’s, they didn’t mention that as much. Though, they both still talk about having the cars, money, clothes and women in their lyrics but its really just reworded like a different slang/vocabulary. – Denzel Martin

    • I do agree with Denzil on this one, I feel like little has changed about the music of today versus the music of the 80’s and 90’s. The content is still the same, they rapped about drugs, sex, and money in the 80’s and 90’s just like they do now. The violence in music today also existed in the music of the last three decades as well. The only real difference is the fakeness, the guise of music today. Back in the day, you could tell that whatever a man rapped about, what ever part of his life he described in his song, he meant it. The words that were coming out of his mouth were embodied though out his lifestyle. That is no longer the case anymore and hasn’t been for a long time now. The lifestyles being described today are mostly phony, fake stories being fabricated just for the purpose of making money as opposed to telling real life stories. -Gregory Broadwater

  2. The music of hip hop over the 80s and the 90s have changed. In the 80s and 90s most hip hop tells about what they’re going through, but today hip hop only talks about drugs, money, cars, girls, and violence. Cordero meggs

  3. Change has to be made, everyone knows that. The problem, however, isn’t that music is changing. It is that music has a possible negative affect on those who listen to it. For example, back in the 1980’s, music had meaning and even when it was negative, it wasn’t so destructive and disrespectful. Now, most popular song you hear would “blow down” on women, or insist that when someone wants fun, they should seek drugs. The music isn’t to blame, the message is.
