no retard, high art is architecture, drama, sculpture, painting, classical composition, and verse. not even novels and film are high art, much less any degenerate genre like jazz, rock, 'dance', or hip hop.

you fucking morons have to stop shitting on hip hop from your art rock high horse. renaissance era polyphonic choral compositions were the peak of music and everything else is for fun.

Who the fuck cares? Hip hop doesn't need to be high art. Nothing needs to be. It should be whatever the fuck it wants to be. Not everything needs to be on the same level of Beethoven in order to be considered worthwhile, and anyone who genuinely thinks so has their head way too far up their ass.
Also, high art as a concept is pretentious horseshit and the bourgeois should stop perpetuating it as something valuable.

Rap is incapable of being art. It's like videogames, as much as kids want to believe their hobby is cooler then their parents, it's just a passing fad.
>>
Who cares? If you can't enjoy music because it isn't "high art" you should get your retarded head out of your fucking ass
>>
>>74530821
certain LUM projects are as close as it gets and even then it's barely halfway there
>>
>>74530821
no. as soon as it nears the potential of being high art it stops being hip hop and starts being another genre
>>
>>74535533
>it's just a passing fad.
The same could be said about rock in the 80s

Only a third of what you said is right. I enjoy trap music, but I don't fucking worship it and I can enjoy other types of hip hop. I just don't like your generic entry-level backpacker shit. In fact, your liking of these generic artists who are masked as amazing and superior hip hop leads me to believe that you are the one who is underage.

hip-hop is actually the opposite of rock n roll in one way. for some reason, the more underground and indie an artist is, the better they are. the closer they are to complete obscurity, that's where 'real hip hop' is.

examples:
Blu & Exile
Cannibal Ox
busdriver
lil ugly mane
dj screw

however, most of those guys sound exactly like every other 'indie' rapper - the samples are generally breezy and unimaginative (except LUM), leaving the tracks to rest on the lyrics. and generally, it takes a lot of work in hip hop to be even relatively unique.

the truth is that hip-hop probably peaked with Public Enemy and the bomb squad, they're the most experimental hip-hop has ever sounded and still do almost 30 years later. madlib comes close but he falls into 'indie' cliches as well

>>74536828
is milo generic? pls send examples i want more like him
>>74536790
look up milo hes pretty good, i like "besos" and "an encyclopedia" the best. busdriver is pretty edgy but at least he's self aware. brockhampton isnt just kevin abstract.
>>74536924
that kid wasnt me, but please do send me the artists that you think arent just "entry level"
>>
>>74536926
>those examples
Yes, I too enjoy the intellectually stimulating conscious and experimental hip hop and not the trap garbage that is played on the radio like Denzel Curry and Future. The production is amazing, but the terrible lyricism stops me from enjoying it. I wish all the trap rappers would die to make way for true lyricists like Hopsin and Joyner Lucas.

I don't know if you want non-entry level backpacker shit, or just non-entry level shit, so I'll just give you both

>>

>>
Lil B is high art.
>>
No.

Hip Hop, much like Jazz before it, were just darkies being aggressive toward whites, in the same way that they walk slowly in front of your car, daring you to beep at them.

It's an affront -- a dare.

It's them basically saying "I'mma take ya cornball white music and make it BETTA white BITCH."

But the thing is that they don't make it better. They just steal it, and the only redeeming thing about any rap becomes the hook in the beat. So it's just flat out theft, really, just like how they stole your bike when you were 12.

So, no, it isn't high art -- it's boogies having too much testosterone.

Niggers can't make art. There's a reason classical is referred to as "art music" and Jazz isn't.

I think some of you are confusing high art with fine art.
