Comedian Aries Spears recently hopped on social media to share his opinion on the current state of rap. The way Spears sees it, today's rappers have no creativity and most of them copy each other.
"Whaddup it's your boy Aries Spears, aka Old Head," said Spears, who made headlines in 2017 for being punched during a live interview. "I wanna ask the young generation a question, seriously. How is it that y'all don't get bored with the current state of Hip Hop and what y'all are doing to rap? When everything sounds the same. The melodies, the same. The beats, the same. The cadence, the same. The flow, the same. Everything autotune ... From NBA YoungBoy to Lil Baby to Rondo Quando, none of you n*ggas sound different. There's no individuality or originality."
Spears also expressed frustration in the caption of his post.
"NOT TO MENTION U CANT UNDERSTAND THE LYRICS AT ALL!!!! & WHAT U DO MAKE OUT IS THE SAME SH*T, MY MONEY, MY CAR, MY GUN, MY HOE! (REPEAT) WHERE IS THIS YOUNG GENERATIONS VERSION OF BLACK THOUGHT (INSANELY LYRICAL) NAS (RAPPING BACKWARDS) BIGGIE (INSANE STORY TELLING) ALA 'N*GGAS BLEED' BIG PUN (COMPLEX WORDPLAY) WTF!"
Do you think too many rappers sound the same these days?
