Are you sure it's dead? Earl Sweatshirt, Mach-Hommy, Griselda, Rome Streetz, Roc Marciano, Ka, Al Divino, Run The Jewels, Mavi, Navy Blue, Joey Badass, J.Cole (ew), Boldy James, billy woods, Elucid, Your Old Droog, etc. Do I need to keep going because I can and will.
Hip-hop is not dead, and it will never die. What you're doing is a disservice to the culture.
