If you could grab a few of your favourite albums from the last few years, jump in a time machine and go back to the mid nineties. Would your younger you be feeling the stuff you are listening to now?

Yes 100% because what I listen to is 100 proof authentic real HipHop that represents HipHop Music & Culture. Ain't nothin changed for me since 1987/88 to now.

Imagine some of the older heads on here takin some Trap Music or drumless Folk Rap crap back in time. smh

Yeah. I think some of it might get swept aside now due to the oversaturation of artists but would likely be regarded as some "next shit" if I listened to it then. There are some incredible MCs left like Midaz the Beast and Spit Gemz who tend to drop very impressive verses on the regular.

So wicked what you're saying is if you didn't know you wouldn't be able to tell it wasn't from that era?

So all the albums that claim to have that "90s boom bap sound". Would you be able to tell it wasn't actually from that time frame if you played in say, 1995?

There's definitely some albums from recent years that could pass for coming out in the 90s. I think most you'd be able to tell as they just seem INFLUENCED by the 90s, not made to sound like they came out in the 90s.

And LOL AT this moron Observe. Drake sounds like garbage no matter what not to mention he has ZERO to do with HipHop. FOH!!

i think it would work out, because i haven't changed at all, since i was just a 12yr old. just like wicked admitted above, i am glad to declare that adulthood has had a weak affect on my maturity. the foolish little boy in me would love the music i'm listening to now, because it's the same music he loved to listen to. our tastes are one and the same, because i have failed to take any agency in my own life by growing up. i am proud to have not changed one bit, in years and years of life. i am not a boring, wasted opportunity of a manchild. not at all.

i'd definitely like some of it but i'm sure there would be a bunch of music i wouldn't like at all. i don't like this question at all to be honest.

i mean, it's not like i just woke up one day and all of the sudden appreciated different styles of music or subgenres. it's been a process. it's something that's been happening gradually throughout my entire life. my taste right now is the culmination of every song, artist, album, sound, etc that i've heard up to this point. i don't really see how i could have made that jump from point a to point g without ever learning to appreciate what b, c, d, e, or f had to offer.

as a music fan, my taste has changed and evolved over time just by being exposed to different sounds, textures, instruments, arrangements and ideas. there's music that i heard 10 years ago that i just started to really appreciate within the last couple years, and there's also music i used to really like that i barely even listen to anymore and when i do it's mainly just for nostalgic value.

your fav music is generally whatever was out when you were in high school.

i'm not even super old, just turned 36, but this era looks like a mess. i was thinking the other day how Digital Underground - No Nose Job was a hit song, but it'd look weird if it came out now cause Everything's so fake. even some artists' success seems manufactured, chicks walking around w/ fake basketball asses, etc.

but theres still some good stuff out there. the worst shit to me is when artists try to replicate the 90s & thats their whole thing, like the stuff wicked promotes is all garbage to me. but yeah, roc marciano, your old droog, the last cormega album would've been good in any era. and mainstream artists like future, big sean are good at what they do.

good question, I would say no, some of the stuff my younger self would see as weak

its down to maturity as an adult, I still like the stuff my teenage self liked, but my taste has broadened and I can appreciate other genres and other good music in general, I would say I was a bit more limited when younger

I guess its called growing up. I have always liked good music especially Hip Hop. I dunno tho' maybe my younger self would dig it.....he was/is a cool guy
