Hip Hop

Hip hop dominated mainstream music in the early 2000s. Artists such as OutKast, The Black Eyed Peas, 50 Cent, Kanye West, Nas, Jay-Z, Snoop Dogg, Missy Elliott, M.I.A., Lil Kim, Lil Wayne, and others were among the dominant mainstream hip hop artists to have represented the genre for the decade.  Though the Los Angeles style of the 1990s waned, gangsta rap continued to be popular through the 2000s, and more commercially oriented party rap dominated the charts. Due to hip hop’s increased moulding with pop music, some artists, such as rapper Nas, have declared the death of the genre. Even many established rappers disagree with the direction hip hip is taking nowadays, and the genre clearly lacks innovation while it is becoming more and more mass-compatible. Just like many other genres, hip hop lacks artists that are different, outstanding or even revolutionary, and that would thus lift the genre up to a next level.
