you know how there's a genre of music called "Classic Rock"?

Classic Rock Bands includes bands like Led Zeppelin, The Who, Pink Floyd, Rolling Stones.

I mean, when they first came out, they were just rock and roll. it wasn't until years later that people recognized, wait a mintue, the songs that they made i the 60's and 70's are still relevant and appealing 20, 30, 40 years later.

like, Rolling Stones... some of their songs could ne released now, and it wouldn't sound dated.

So... do you think in a couple years Hip Hop will start showing signs of Classics? Hip Hop is much younger than rock and roll. You could (arguably) say hip hop started in the 80's. Well, we're now approaching about the 30'th year of hip hop, and its time some classics are to be determined (Run DMC, Beastie Boys, A Tribe Called Quest)

Who do you think (in today's music) will become future classics? Which songs that are out now do you think will be timeless?

i.e. I dont think someone like Soulja Boy and auto-tune tracks will be timeless. Like, I imagine listening to "Turn My Swag On" in the year 2025, and thinking, damn that shit is sooooooo 2000's.

are there any hip hop/rap songs that have some kind of lasting power like rock songs do?

In da Club by 50 will be considered/is a classic. Any Eminem song. Throw 99 Problems by Jay-Z in there.

I think Classic Hip Hop should be shit thats more like Run DMC & The Sugarhill Gang not 50 cent. Although i agree his album was classic i think shit like In Da club should be considered classic in like 10 more years or so

This. Classic rock is just a blanket term. It really isn't used too much outside of radio.

Gang Starr, G Rap and DJ Polo, Pete Rock and CL Smooth, EPMD, Eric B. and Rakim, Masta Ace, etc. is what should be considered 'classic rap' right now. Basically it should cover anyone who started pre-1990. As time progresses, it will move to include pre-2000, and so on, as this seems to be the way 'classic rock' worked.

Hmmm ok...I'm sorry I forgot to mention "real hip hop"...throw some MF DOOM in there even though 90% of you guys don't understand what he says. In da Club is a classic period! You guys were on that 50 hype just like how you guys are on that Lil Wayne hype right now.

He is good. He is a legend. He is fairly far from being one of the best though.

so , basicly what's the difference between rapping about killing your mom and rapping about shooting n..... up ?

eminem's songs contents are just different , that's not bad at all

Btw your answer to my post can tell a lot about how much you know hip hop
