Is hip hop really dead? According to an upcoming rapper, known as RMF (RM Federal) the answer
is definitely yes.
Earlier today, he rapper took to his Facebook to drop some thoughts on the current state of hip hop in Nigeria.
“HIP HOP IS A GONER (accept or not)”
“The face Nigerians been giving hip hop nowadays, you just have to do it to a certain stage and switch.”
He then went on to state that most of the hardcore rappers, are only nurturing impossible and unrealistic dreams, because no one is ready to listen to hip hop, anymore.
The young rapper also told a story of how the audience threw a bottle at a artiste, who was rapping on stage, because everyone felt he was killing their vibe.
His comment section is buzzing. Some seem to share his sentiment.
A certain user Emini Emjay Ois commented;
“Lmao this shi is real, do hip hop at shows and do see their reactions. As everything be now, na to use one’s head, otherwise ’em go leave you behind”.
Another named IbiLe San Chuzhy said;
“Bro if it ain’t making money, it ain’t making sense. Oladips now don dey do commercial. I can’t blame him ‘cos that is what Nigeria people want”.
Some others would go on to disagree. One Stanley Iwuala says;
“Hip hop is not dead. If you want to be great, do what others can’t do”.
Obviously disappointed, another user Gma Gunna says;
“Can’t believe a rapper like you is actually saying this”.
To be honest, the mainstream has lacked quality hip hop music lately. With many good rappers going unnoticed. And it’s a cause for alarm. Let’s see how big this drama gets.
