    Opinions on whether or not y'all think rap is on its way out.
    If yes give some time frame. What genre is on the way up?
    Any old genre you'd like to see make a comeback?

    definitely not on the way out. it'll always be played at parties and in clubs. everything has its time and place.

    I read somewhere that sales of rap albums have declined by about 50% since 2002 and is continuing to lose popularity. Personally I don't really like rap, pretty much every song is about the same thing and that gets boring.

    I'd want to see trance become more popular in the US.

    No, I don't.

    If you've ever played Lumines and Lumines II for the PSP then you'd know what I mean. In trance, electronic music in general, lyrics are secondary to the beats, whereas rap is the opposite.

    Rap has turned into pop music these days. It's all phoney with lame lyrics about bling, cars and women now. It used to have actual political & social messages in it etc. *sigh* I'd say real rap is dead and fake rap has taken over. It's all commercialised, corporate, bubblegum, pop-rap, garbage now. I only listen to 80's & 90's rap now. The 90's made some really good music.

    I'd love to see Psychedelic Rock make a come back. I've really gotten obsessed with it these days. I'd also love to see hardcore Gangsta Rap come back like in the early 90's.

    edit: i forgot.. BRING BACK G-FUNK!!! That's some of the best rap ever made and they stopped making it wtf? How can they stop making hot tracks like "Regulate"? The last g-funk release I can think of was Dr Dre's 2001 album back in 1999. R.I.P. to G-Funk it gave us great albums like The Chronic, All Eyez On Me, Doggystyle, 2001 and the Above the Rim soundtrack. It gave us tracks like Nothing But A G Thang, Dre Day, Real Muthaphuckkin G's, Still Dre, Gin & Juice, Regulate, Pour Out A Little Liquor, Who Am I (What's My Name), It Was A Good Day and the list goes on!!!

    Now they use crappy beats like southern crunk which sucks. Bring back the WEST COAST!

    The next big thing will be hyper-reggae-jazz-funk-fusion.

    There'll be telly programmes and everything. Hyper-Reggae-Jazz-Funk-Fusion Idol will be created for the public to pick the new star performers. Simon Cowell will grow lurid green dreadlocks, smoke ganja, and be a really chilled out judge.
