Bun B Says Hip-Hop Shouldn’t Have An Issue With The Rap Game’s Identity Crisis

Bun B recently sat down for an interview in which he gave his take on the evolution of the rap game. Stating that the genre is at a time when it’s undergoing changes, he said that back in the day Southern rappers were trying to develop a sound reminiscent to New York MCs, and now in this age, things have switched with the Southern sound being most prominent.

Though the South is currently in the forefront, Bun said this shouldn’t be an issue between rappers because, he rationalized, New York started hip-hop, so no matter how it evolves, it will forever entail the city’s native sound. Also adding that he’s glad that Kendrick Lamar put the competition back in hip-hop with “Control,” Bun says that although the sounds may mix and mingle, hip-hop isn’t for friends.
