Listening to "Enter the Wu-Tang (36 Chambers)" earlier today
and the imminent end of 2003 got me wondering about where
hip-hop will be 10 years from now.
Which of today's key players will still be relevant?
The thing is, back in 1993, I couldn't have predicted a Puff Daddy
The only things I could have guessed were that Dr. Dre would still
That's why at the moment, I'm looking forward to 2013 and I'm

I'll try give my humble opinion in another posting, but your post made
me wanna look back at what cats in alt.rap in 1993 were saying Hip Hop
would be 10 years from now... I just find it interesting to see what
cats were predicting back then to get an idea how accurate we will be.
It would be interesting to see somebody in 2013 delve through the
archives and look at where we said Hip Hip would be 10 years from now,
Anyway, the link to the thread from '93 is below...

Since I started listening to Hip Hop in '92 back in elementary I'm
almost never right in my predictions... back then I would've never
thought West Coast gangsta rap would eventually "die out..." I thought
it was here to stay. By '97 with the explosion of shiny suit rap and
the death of Death Row, I realized I was wrong. I also thought Death
Row would be a powerhouse for at least a decade.
Back in '95 & '96 I thought the East Coast/ West Coast beef would stay
In '97 after Biggie died, I thought it would escalate, and more
In '99 when Dr. Dre dropped 2001 and talks of an NWA reunion album and
And up until No Limit blew up in late '97, I would've never conceived
So basically I'm never right in my predictions. But I just realize
So I think by 2013-2014, rap in America will still be predominantly
I think Hip Hop will continue to lose its rebellious touch that put
And I think the music will be less sampled, and more "created beats".
Damn I'm tired of typing.

The Neptunes, Kanye West, 50 Cent/G-Unit (just to name a few)....
> Will hip-hop enjoy as much chart success, or more, or less?
I think there will be even more crossover success.
> Will successful white rappers become a common sight?
If they're not wack.
> Which of today's artists will be the object of nostalgia?
?...any one hit wonders.
> Will the fragmentation of the hip-hop genre continue?
Due to the array of styles, yes.

11 years later, you were pretty much correct besides the G Unit thing, we'll see how 50 cent does with his new album.
