    Basically you travel back in time and talk to a hip hop listener, describing something that happens relating to rap music that would be misunderstood as something great due to lack of context but in reality isn't as good as it sounds



    For example you go back to prime NWA era and tell people Ice Cube goes on to be a movie star...they don't know he turns into a massive sellout and makes s-----y kids movies

    Or you go to 2005 and tell people Kanye starts using Twitter, a platform which allows him to share his thoughts on anything with millions of people with a click of a finger
    ....they don't know Kanye becomes a MAGA hat wearing schizophrenic seemingly with other severe mental issues


    Go to 2002 and tell ppl how lyricism in hip hop has taken backseat by 2018, but Eminem is keeping "real rap" alive by still putting out music with lyrical emphasis...they don't know the majority of his music since 2004 has been bad and he's sold out and started making disney channel pop music and Rick Rubin rock anthems


    What's the best you guys can come up with

    Travel to early 90s and explain that Tupac becomes a global icon and the highest selling rap musician of all time...they don't know its largely in part to his untimely death

    I’d go back to the early 2000’s and tell people dr.dre would sell some of the biggest headphones out.

    I would not tell them to not looo out for detox. And let them assume his headphone success was actually do to one of his future albums.
