There hasn't been a rap song or album to land at the top of the Billboard charts in all of 2023.  Bow Wow was asked why at the BET Awards on Sunday.

He believes it all has to do with today's music lacking quality and a true sense of artistry.


 

"N*ggas putting out trash ass music," said Bow. "Serious, everything sound alike, everything repetitive, same tempo. It's just roll out the bed, everybody can do that. It wasn't like that ... And now we finally getting to a point to where I feel like now it's about to shift back into the real sh*t."

"You really gotta have talent, you really gotta go," he further explained. "I think people are starting to get tired of it now, that's why you don't see nothing charting ... Ain't nobody doing nothing different. So it's time to shake the game up and get it back to what it need to get back to. ... I ain't heard nothing that I say, 'I'mma hear this 30 years from now.'"

Afterward, Bow — who retired from rap years ago — said the only people making quality music these days is Kendrick Lamar, J. Cole, and Drake. 

Do you share that opinion?
