That rap doesn't have the same power that it once had.
That old school rap actually talked about something important.
But the thing that I often forget is that rap music was not always pop music.
P.E. or the Wu-Tang Clan never had a number one single - they were the outsiders.
The rap that actually crossed over was just as simple as today's pop.
Look back twenty years at the top songs of 1990;
How many songs would you say are classic or socially important.
It's not so much that rap went pop, it's only that pop went rap.
