    Default Atlanta Rap 2014-2016

    Was it innovative? If so what was innovative about it? If not, what were the precedents for it?

    Was it paradigm shifty?

    Was it a golden age of rap comparable to the mid-90's? Did it in any ways exceed the mid-90's?

    What were some of the best choons to come out of it?

    (Not strictly Atlanta by the way)

    a big shift has been this turn to fragmentary flows comprising of quick bursts of staccato triplets being broken up with lots of interjecting ad-libs. like people trying to make 'hold on se22 mix)' with their voices alone; it's the same sort of effect.







    doesn't account for young thug though, he doesn't do much of this.

    i am interested in exploring the idea (half-baked, if that) that Atlanta has become as stultifying a hub of influence on rap as new york once was

    but i suspect i'm just sick of hearing 'skrt skrt' adlibs

    and sick of life, in fact

    it's not a novel opinion but i do think that the reverence of the past is what's holding back la and new york. think about yg following up krazy life with a g-funk throwback album. gs9 were the closest i think of reconciling the past with something more contemporary. you can tell it's new york without being nostalgic.

    on the other hand you could argue desiigner copying the atlanta sound and being succesful doing so hindered a proper new york sound emerging.

    being honest

    Was it innovative? If so what was innovative about it? If not, what were the precedents for it?
    no

    Was it paradigm shifty?
    no

    Was it a golden age of rap comparable to the mid-90's? Did it in any ways exceed the mid-90's?
    no. no.

    What were some of the best choons to come out of it?
    nothing.

    but that's based on studiously avoiding listening to any of it.

    i thought you said he doesnt fit into your thesis? can you answer your own questions please? it's like when corpsey posted that weird Scientology quiz, got everyone to answer but didnt answer himself like a shifty pervert.

    not so much into that specific rhythmic thing i was talking about (though he does it a little bit every now and then), but he's my favourite artist from this era.

    migos popularised the triplets, future popularised the non-melodic auto-tune, arguably chief keef was the one who started making rap increasingly ad-lib centric and young thug and richie homie quan doing weird things with phonetics.
