A$AP ROCKY SAYS RAP IS STUCK IN ‘BRAGGADOCIOUS, ADOLESCENT SPACE’

A$AP Rocky says rap needs to be updated a little. He’s spoken up about the genre being stuck in its old ways in a new interview.

During a fresh conversation with Jerrod Carmichael, the rapper was asked about how he feels “growing older in rap.” “Rap is in its adolescence and it’s been stuck here since Soulja Boy,” the A$AP Mob leader responded.

“Before, everybody looked 35 and up. When Lil Wayne and JAY-Z and T.I. and Jeezy and Ross was on, rappers looked old. Like, we had Lil’ Bow Wow and that was it. That all changed with the internet and self-releasing. Now, rap is stuck in this braggadocious, adolescent space. It’s not as mature.”

Carmichael then noted that JAY-Z was the first rapper he ever heard discussing his family in his music, to which the “D.M.B.” artist explained that there’s a responsibility that comes with being a Hip-Hop artist these days, no matter what the demographic is.

Rocky added…

“But the thing is, being a rapper now, you don’t want to exclude anybody or neglect any demographics. As somebody that people look up to, there’s a responsibility to put people on the right path.”

He’s definitely got a point. A$AP Ricky’s opinion has quickly caught a buzz online with many different views being tossed around. What do you think?
