Is hip hop dead?

The demise of hip hop has been a topic of burning contention in chat rooms and in cyber circles since the beginning of the century. But when Nas released his album Hip Hop is Dead late last year, everybody and anybody was talking about it. Even people with little knowledge about hip hop culture and music have voiced their opinions and those who only see the negative side of hip hop can’t wait to rid society of this “scourge”. What hip hop artists say.
In Nas’ title track “Hip hop is dead” the hook is: “Hip hop just died this mornin' and she's dead, she's dead” (Read our review here ).
Whereas during a recent press conference, Mzansi hip hop star HHP said hip hop is alive. Watch or download the interview now (1MB)
