What is your opinion on the current hiphop scene?
I feel like rap is so big how that it has split into sub genres and now you see everyone adding their own flavor and twist. I feel like as long as the OG’s are respected and If an artist really lives what they say and do then its real hip hop. Rap is going to
keep evolving its going to great to be apart of it.
