    I think we should debate about this, a part of me thinks as I get older I should stop listening to RAP music, it should be for the somewhat younger generation, I’m turning 31 soon and I feel like when I listen to rap I feel like I’m 18 like a teenager who has yet to grow up

    do you think music can effect a person of how he is at any age, or is it who you are and music shouldn’t have anything to do with it?

    I’ve been feeling this way a couple months now by listening to brotha lynch, Em obviously and other rappers, maybe it’s just me and I have yet to grow up But I wanna know if other people feel this way


    What do you think and how do you feel when you listening to this type of music?

    Depends what rap music you listen to. I grew up on NWA, Ice Cube, Eminem. I still enjoy that music now but I spend more time listening to more calm/lyrical rap. Kendrick is a good example of a mainstream artist.

    I think rap suits a younger audience better but you can listen to older rap based on nostalgia as you age. Sometimes though, things feel very out of touch.
    My older sister was a huge Stan when she was a kid. One day we were in the car together listening to k--- You and it felt childish and awkward

    I admire it for the skill. Always have, always will. At 40 I'll be listening still...

    But seriously, I don't like the new era of Rap. I'm quite picky about drill, mumble rap is trash, it's fair to find a new artist that I like based on what is classed as rap these days. I'll always love rap but I'm in it for the bars and the flows. None of this mumble s---.

    I think I will still be listening in years but selective. Probably still be bumping jay z and stuff but cant imagine being 40 and listening to lil pumps (even if I like him now) or migos / tekashi etc

    I kinda understand what you mean but not as a whole genre. Someone my age listening to Lil Uzi in public is a little weird. But listening to old school Jay or Nas for example is perfectly normal. Hip-hop as a category has so many different sounds that have changed with the decades that it's not fair to any more to just say "hip-hop".

    So y'all going to stop listening to new hip hop only because it's trending between teenagers? This is like feeling embarrassed for watching cartoons with 30 years old, not only nobody cares but you're forcing yourself to step away from something you like only to please unknown human beings.

    OP your concentrating far too much on your age. You sound like you have an inferiority complex that you are not mature for your age.
    It is a number.

    I listen to music I enjoy.
    I am growing a bit away from modern hip hop. But Roddy Rich,Boogie & Joey Badass are some good more modern artists. Juice WRLD was great too.
    Young Thug & his influence that sound has gone very stale & boring.

    Ya, much like posting, rap is a young mans sport. I listen to what I like mainly for nostalgia, and mostly fail at keeping up with what’s popular. I think it’s always important to be aware of what’s out there, but I don’t feel bad being a grown up whose tastes have shifted.

    That said I listen to Eminem sometimes heh, and run/work out to rap

    People are 50 plus and literally still rapping now, it’s ridiculous to put an age limit on listening to anything the f--- you want
