It’s no secret that hip-hop has been through some major changes in the last decade. Although many solely place the blame on the new crop of rappers that have recently come about, Bun B has another way of thinking.
Stating that the lack of substance in lyricism should be attributed to the upcoming MCs not being raised correctly, Bun B feels that both parties should take the blame. “A lot of dudes are not coming in with any idea of really what the culture represents,” said Bun on Sway In The Morning. “So sometimes we can’t get mad at people who don’t represent hip-hop the way we want them to because we left a lot of these young dudes hanging. We didn’t raise them right.”
Later speaking on his new album Epilogue and how it brings forth the contents of a real MC, Bun B reminds listeners exactly why he’s called the OG.
