Bollywood has a history when it comes to using rap music in their films. Some tracks stay and get positive reviews other tracks just straight up suck. If I had to tell you which tracks in which films the list will be very long. The audience will eventually get tired of the same content and bass heavy beats.
I love mainstream Hip-Hop but when the content gets repeated over and over again on a different beat I can’t defend it. The use of generic lyrics involving liquor, females and dancing is old now and is degrading Hip-Hop to a lower level. Bollywood takes away the creativity of the artist by throwing money around. There are exceptions of course when artists cover a topically themed track related to the film but then there are those stupid re-fixes too.
Hip-Hop since the start has been more than just a genre of music it became a way of life. As soon as artists let money guide their content it becomes a struggle for the listeners to vibe with their favourites. Rappers are supposed to be role models and I do respect the Mainstream music but when the same music starts to sound similar I can’t vibe with that.
Hip-Hop needs to go back to the roots but hey these are just my opinions. Do let us know what your opinions are on this topic on our facebook post.
