Is it still a staple of your Hip Hop diet or do you find it washed up and played out?
Boom Bap is Hip Hop and will always be a part of Hip Hop No matter what comes and goes there will always some dude making boom bap and a dude like Wickky.

It will always be the best part because head nodding music is the most iconic subgenre of hip hop

i love boom bap, when it's at it's absolute best which requires both the mc and the beat to be on point. otherwise it does end up sounding very dated and derivative. i realized that when i was going back and listening to a lot of underground hip hop from the early-mid 2000's, a lot of it is extremely similar both lyrically and sonically. seriously, how many songs out there are about keeping it real, holding it down for the underground, how much terrible mainstream rap is, or rappers saying how underrated they are? listening to so much of that stuff in such a short period of time probably caused me to get burnt out made it all start start blending together, and i think that's why i gravitate towards other types of hip hop now - something i don't feel like i've heard 5000 times. it's definitely a staple part of hip hop to me though, i don't think it'll ever go away completely but i think making good boom bap in 2017 that doesn't sound played out is one of the hardest things to do.

Boom Bap served its purpose. This era is all about dark, hardcore and clever hip hop.

well yeah SC but that also goes for every genre of music - jazz, pop, metal, etc. only 30% of it is going to really stand out. with boom bap though only 10% of it stands out. there's so many great artists out there who are at least trying to innovate and do something new though instead of doing their best impression of their favorite artist from the previous generation. milo, danny brown, scissortongue, homeboy sandman, zeroh, shabazz palaces, tree, lorde fredd33, clipping., skech185, p.o.s, billy woods.. none of these artists are really that similar. honestly 90% of modern boom bap sounds the same to me, which is fine for the people that ONLY want to hear that, i just get tired of it after a while. there's some great stuff out there, but you have to really search for it in this sea of averageness.

Every single genre of Hip Hop is a sea of averageness.
Some times the same old thing is not a bad thing.

of course,every subgenre of every type of music is, but with a lot of the boom bap stuff i hear from the last 10-15 years it's like people aren't even trying to be original. isn't that the whole point, to be original? the percentage of average, uninteresting boom bap artists is much higher than other type of hip hop, so it's more difficult for me to find stuff that actually stands out or is memorable. of course the same old thing isn't bad, but it gets old fast so i need to switch it up constantly.

also i feel like a lot of these veterans from the 90's that still make music fall off because they stick to that same old forumula. i'm not saying they need to do a complete 180, but some evolution would be nice. just look at ishmael butler, what he's doing now with shabazz palaces is pretty different from digable planets but both are very dope imo. the new perceptionists album from this year is also pretty different from what lif and ak were doing 13 years ago.

i said average/unmemorable, not shitty. that's the thing though - a lot of these artists making boom bap aren't even bad, they're just boring. there are people who will tell you xxxtentacion or migos are their favorite artist, but no one is going to say that about some random underground rapper making tradionalist boom bap that sounds just like everyone else that came before them but worse.

I totally agree with this line from tippi dink and basically with all his comments till now in this thread:
"i love boom bap, when it's at it's absolute best which requires both the mc and the beat to be on point. otherwise it does end up sounding very dated and derivative"

Personally I think that there is a lot of good boom bap rap music. A lot of good producers, some of them are technically perfect (i.e: Phoniks), and a lot of decent mc's. But doing good boombap rap music isn't so soi difficult, what is actually difficult is doing boom bap in 2017 and being able to impress.

hip hop diet
I listen to boom bap when I'm playing a CD that is considered boom bap.

Does anyone meal plan their hiphop diet and have Boom Bap Thursdays?

I think Boom Bap is a silly word...I think hiphop is too, it's for bunnies/

It's not wack it still sounds cool and has a place. Play it at the family birthday cook out or skating rink. Boom Bap now is a real old style. It predates what I grew up enjoying. At the same time it existed and I got to experience it. It is impossible for anyone to recreate it now authentically.
