The Daily Grind Video

<p>&nbsp;</p><p>I am a 35 year old former emcee from the borough of BK. I feel like today&rsquo;s Hip Hop is not for the Hip Hop Heads of my generation. For the last few weeks I have been listening to Sam Cooke, Curtis Mayfield and the Impressions, Teddy Pendergrass, etc. Hip Hop has sent me back to the roots. Current Hip Hop is so bad that I have been going to the soul roots that were the catalyst for the genre.</p><p>I have been listening to break beats like Nautalius by Bob James (sampled by Main Source&rsquo;s &ldquo;Live At The BBQ and many other artists). Hip Hop only has a few good artists that drop around three times in a year. I am fan of Jay Electronica, Jay-Z, J. Cole, Drake and a few other rappers. I am waiting to hear the Method Man, Raekwon, and Ghost CD. I am waiting on Talib and Hi Tek&rsquo;s reunion, but there is not enough good music to fill the void.</p><p>So is it going to get better or worse? After this batch of music will I be officially be&nbsp;boxed out due to&nbsp;this disconnect. I will sorely miss the feeling new hot&nbsp;Hip Hop gave me for the last 30 years if I can&rsquo;t get with what&rsquo;s coming next. I just wonder if I will forever be stuck with&nbsp;the music of yesterday. Is today&rsquo;s music as bad I think,&nbsp;or am I just out of touch?</p><p>Name (required)</p>
