Some bloggers are already postulating that the recent trend of rappers rapping over MIA and Santogold samples could be "one of the lowest points in hip hop." To us, it seems more like the recent trend of bloggers complaining about what rappers like Jay-Z and T.I. are allowed to do sounds a lot like when pre-bloggers complained about what rappers like Jay-Z and T.I. were allowed to do in 1999. For reference, read this sad tale about Def Jux. Is it really that big a deal? PS- We still fuck with hip-house and snap when appropriate.
