    i know not everyone listen to a wide range of music, but i personally listen to nearly everything, hip-hop, rock, pop, alternative, (old) r&b house, electronica, dubstep, even used to bump some country from time to time...i probably listen to alternative the most, used to be hip-hop, but over the years ive listened to less and less hip-hop....obviously there's a lot of talented hip-hop artists, but as far as the mainstream level goes it seems like the talent bar is set much lower than all other genres, your thoughts??

    you are correct. there's a lot more untalented rap artists that are well known more other genres. in hip hop today, it seems like all you need is a catchy trap beat and a chanting hook to make a song that will be popular. but, i think this phase is falling out and good hiphop is coming back. i mean the actual craft of spitting is coming back with artists like jcole, kendrick lamar, drake, tyler, krit, etc. seems like the south is fading out slowly.. and i'm loving it.

    lmaoo id clearly argue its the MOST talented form of music needed these days

    yea theres a lot of shitty rappers out here but when it comes to great rappers and great production then that is some shit going down

    but the most talented musician ever probably isnt a rapper tho

    michael jackson, mary j blige, freddy mercury, are some of the people i would think of..people who constantly sing major hits in pop/r&b is prolly the hardest

    i wouldn't phrase it as hip hop itself is the least talented genre (just the music form itself)

    but as far as today's STANDARDS go, hip hop has by FAR the lowest standards to "get on" than any other genre

    If youre saying lady gaga is more talented than kanye west, go kill yo self.

    Hiphop >>>>

    No other genre plays with language as beautifully as hiphop.

    But i understand that negative outways the positive, but that weak shit never lives on. d4l died after ppl finished their laffy taffy shit.

    u should kill yourself for making such an assumption outta nowhere, get off kanye's dick already, he'll go down to be one of the most influential musicians of all time, not just hip-hop, in no way did i imply this was referring to artists as individuals, but collectively as genres..get the fuck outta here with ur lack of individuality

    You offended as fuck, bruh. Pop is haiku n hiphop are poems.
    Hiphop is a lot more versatile than any other genre. Your thread title shouldnt be hiphop is the least talented genre.it should be why the fuck hiphop be fucking up so much.

    Cuz common >>>>>> taylor swift.

    Uh, I think you're severely underestimating how talented Lady Gaga is. I'm not saying she is or isn't, but I wouldn't be mad at someone saying either.

    Her hits are actually her least impressive work. But to each their own.
