I was reading an article awhile ago with Nas about his album. He goes on about how he thinks rap over the past couple of years is "Dead" or at least not a real as it used to be. About the album from Nas:
"... Our way of thinking is dead, our commerce is dead. Everything in this society has been done. It's like a slingshot, where you throw the muthafucka back and it starts losing speed and is about to fall down."
What do you guys think about Hip-Hop/Rap being dead?
