    the tacky operatic. the tacky gothic. music through the prism of stage school, a camp detachment from it's emotional potency. seeing distortion as a wagnerian brass swell. rock as baroque. frilly cuffs.

    yes you're right, phantom of the opera vibes

    tory lanez fits into that end of things too, if only because he rips off travis scott (who rips off everyone else) - gets very wearying over a few tracks

    my favourite t-scott choon is the one where he completely rips off swae lee

    If I was a virile young whippersnapper right now I'd be sampling autotune rap and cutting it up to make explosive rave music

    THAT'S JUST ME THOUGH

    On a serious note, I do think it would be nice to have a sort of 'new hardcore', sampling contemporary pop/rap music like hardcore of olde. Would have to be all bootlegs/white labels to escape lawyers. Juke actually did / does this a lot.

    As he should.

    TBQH my elders should've been talking about Rich Kidz and Yung LA properly and tbf like... David Drake was. Maybe not with the emphasis I would argue these folks deserve but hey, individual thought. But the narrative all coalesced around Young Thug because he was Descended from Wayne and Blessed by Gucci and like... Rich Kidz seemingly were signed because one of the members were T.I.'s nephew (probably true). Some guys just get a lucky break with narrative and a handful of people benefit from retrospective analysis but the 00s and even the first couple years of the decade were just so different from the current era.

    Also it's so fucking hard to get Bigger People to pay attention to things so that the right eyes look at a scene. I've been saying for years Detroit Rap is gonna have it's big moment and it's only JUST STARTED this year, while I personally think the scene's dropped in creativity. Rap Media is unfortunately a furious pace setter and it's hard to interrupt that constant content churn machine.
