I just stormed across an article today on msn, with the rather bold claim that "hip hop is not music".
It was shock coupled with exasperation that made me open the page only to find out it was a hyperbolic portrayal of my very own point of view.
The writer started by by quoting Oasis' Noel Gallagher who blamed JayZ for one of the biggest rock gigs not selling out. In JayZ's response, he pointed out that other genres try to victimize hiphop. He said and I quote 'We don't play guitars, Noel, but hip-hop has put in its work like any other form of music'
Even if as Nas claims, Hiphop is Dead, does it mean it should be discriminated against? do you feel hiphop is disregarded by lovers of other genres?
