There’s no question that the rap culture has undergone generations of changes with social media and streaming services have impacted the way we consume the biggest genre in the world. The constant argument of “old heads” being too critical of younger rappers and new commers being oblivious to pioneers of the culture, rapper Remy Ma certainly did not hold back when she shared her thoughts on the new generation of artists taking over hip-hop today.
On a recent episode of Remy’s Revolt-featured show State of the Culture, the New York native spoke loud and clearly about new rappers attempting to discredit “old heads” being out of touch.
This is my opinion. I don’t really give a f*ck about it. Let me get into my Remy Ma bag. Seriously, I really don’t care. What I think is that some of these newer artists are f**kin’ trash and they can’t compare to some of the standards that were set. They mastered the way to stream and make catchy hooks and the wave that’s going on. That’s cool.
Remy goes on to continue saying, The only way to get rid of…to make it seem like what they doing is great is to get rid of the greats before you. If you listen to any of the newer artists that get a buzz or be popular, they always, ‘These old people need to do this.’ Now, they really want you to go away. ‘Go over there. I don’t want nobody that can actually critique what I’m saying. Go away, die, never come back, and let us do what we do.'”
