Bun B Says The Elders May Have Not Raised Upcoming MCs Correctly

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.

    you have to look at the progress and the passion when you think of hip hop today. I know that when I think of all of the good rappers that has come along in my day I know that I can name a few that still have a good standing today. you have to be able to see that pure game, image consulting, and networking plays a major part. you have to keep the times ahead of the times. I respect the game but you have to let others seek forth before putting others on the chopping block. I know bun b is going to be around for years to come. I hope he keeps giving knowledge in order to keep things going strong.
