Explicit content, profanity and slangs, you name it and a hip hop song with all of this will be found on the internet. The evolution of hip-hop can be contributed to a secretive urban crusade where the inspiration was the West African folk poets. The lyrics were meaningful and on issues such as politics and often had rebellious undertones. Contemporary hip-hop music genres though have taken different routes and forms, but are similar to the years of conception in terms of the principal i.e. reciting on beats.
Coming to think of it, hip-hop can and should be more powerful. Where the lyricist has more words in his cavalry to express, appreciate or denigrate and evoke emotion. During a time where materialism and sham are synonymous with modern age music and artists express music more as vogue rather than content, very few hip-hop artists can boast of lyrical excellence. Artists who create music with focus on lyrical craft and keep a larger audience in perspective, exhibit a deeper connect they have with music and evidently get a lot of praise as the audience appreciates and connects to well written and created music.
