How do you guys see the rap industry evolving from here? Right now, hip-hop is under fire from politicians for being to explicit, violent etc, but so was Elvis back in his day. Where do you see rap in the next 5 years? 10? 20? How will the industry look then?

Personally I believe Rap will live on, even if they're getting a bad rep from politicians, I still believe people out there will buy Rap cd's and go to Rap concerts. To many people like Rap for it to die. It's not going anywhere anytime soon.

I agree with MJ. Most people like atleast one rap song no matter what their prefrence of music is and I think that despite the negative reps from people the Rap industry will continue on just as strong as today.

You make it sound like your telling a prophecy.

Hip hop aint goin nowhere...rather, it will start to merge between classical, rock, and techno/electronica shit (lil jon's beats already sound technoish if you really listen)

Like everything else in history, it will become less mainstream, start merging with other genres, and eventually be a lot better than it currently is, then eventually become mainstream once again.
