Another reason for the "dumbing down" of hip-hop is the consolidation of radio stations. As the ClearChannels and Viacoms bought up more and more radio stations, their need to have a lowest common generic playlist, since most of the programming is now generated from corporate headquarters. There used to be more diversity in rap music- you had conscious rap (PE, KRSOne), party rap (early SugarHill groups), and even comedy (Biz Markie). There was room for all of this on the radio in the early days of rap. Regarding Kalamu’s statement about younger artists mastering earlier forms of their genre of choice- there is no incentive to do so. Part of this has to do with the advent of sampling technology and ProTools software. "Mastering" older styles is just a matter of point n click. Anyway, I enjoy the site. I stumbled across it by accident. Keep spreading the music!

If you listen to the song “Outer Space” by The Prodigy (the UK dance/electronica band) they use samples from “I Chase the Devil”. Similarly, another genre blending group known as The Qemists have used samples of “Disco Devil” in their song, “Iron Shirt.” Both are quite good if you’re in to that type of music.
