1) Less Kanye
2) Less Autotune
3) Less sampling from "new" tunes. Numa Numa? Really?

Don't really do Hip Hop personally, but I liked the stuff happening 20 years ago, now it's all commercial sounding, and less cut and paste. The laid back gangsta sound never did it for me. Hip Hop was fun to me when they would mess around a lot, and weren't afraid to make noise. Public Enemy, Wu Tang Clan etc.

Also if somebody was to figure out how to get a Breakcore type feel into Hip Hop, that would be cool as hell IMO.

In all seriousness, what would happen if you'd just rap over dubstep? That could be interesting.

oh,

4) Way less Lil Wayne.

More layers.
Less sampling.
More hybrid stuff with some real instruments and/or vocals.

Definately less abuse of autotune.

More Intelligent lyrics that deal with something other than gangs, guns, pimping hoes and macho BS that involves a lot less cussing.

An end to text battles !!! And battling and bigging oneself up at every opportunity and stupid dissing of others, which has led to murders.

Smarten it up. Take it to the next level. Have people respect the music, not the swearing and 'ghetto' content as rich little white boys who have no experience of either, try to look tough and p*ss off their parents, so drop their money on Jay Z and 50 cent and DMX.

don't worry about gangsterism and such we're talking about hip-hop not rapmusic, leeds I would like to see more layering also but with more sampling, I think alot of recent artist have taken samples to alot of new places. i love the production on that cannibal ox album and there was so many samples that I though were not samples, the layering was extremely good i'd like more of that


and then on the other hand I'd like some more sparse boombap music with focus being on talented rappers who have alot of different styles i'm getting weary of the rappers with one steeeeeeeeee

Talent


There has been a black hole for a while now. Yes, there are good rappers and yes there are good producers but lets face it, rap is pretty damn boring and formulaic these days.

Ok. Serialism? Minimalism? Aleatoric algorithms? Generative rhythmic techniques? How about twelve-tone counterpoint? All with a flow on top?

And who's to say what's interesting?

hip hop needs moar

1) melody
2) composition (enough with the 4 bar loops)
3) interesting instruments/production
4) interesting lyrics
5) funk and soul

I'd also say less rapping and more talented singing but then it wouldn't really be hip hop anymore. seriously though I'm tired of people talking over tracks, its fucking lazy. Learn to sing, its music

heres something most hip hop isn't doing. drench everything in reverb and delay. make it sorta shoe gazer hip hop with droning reverbed out thick walls of sound
It was as if someone shook up a 6 foot can of blood soda and suddenly popped the top.
