There is a commonly used term “the jack of all trades” that describes someone that can do many things. I believe that the term can be used for my music choice. I love all types of music. There is only one type of music that I can not stand at all, and that is the scream-o music that features people literally screaming over electric guitar and drums. It kind of freaks me out.
One of my favorite genres is hip-hop. While I can listen to the new school hip-hop, I love the soul that came with the old school generation.
Kodak Black, Lil Uzi Vert, and Skeme are a few of the artists that fall in the label as new school. These guys definitely know how to set a mood that can only be matched by sitting in a man cave eating pizza and playing video games.
While these rappers can definitely “set it off”, I also like to throw it back to the 00’s and listen to artists such as Lil Boosie, Lil Wayne, Eminem and more. I usually like to listen to this music when I am by myself driving around town. This list usually does not get listened to as much as the new school or the old school. I consider these guys middle schoolers, because these were the artists I listened to in middle school when I played basketball.
Old school hip-hop is where the soul of the genre is. Tupac is definitely my favorite artist of this generation. Biggie Smalls is a close runner up, with Nas finishing up the top three. I listen to these artist more often than the other two sections, because Tupac is the greatest rapper of all time. His soul for his art shows in every song. He spoke on problems that were arising at the time and was relevant to today’s problems as well.
While Rap is what I listen to more, don’t get me wrong I LOVE country music. Nothing can beat the vibe of ridin’ around in my truck with the windows down listenin’ to some good ole’ country music.
