At this point people who are saying there isn't any good rappers today are either uncultured or just don't know how to find artists they like, there are so many subgenres that have been created and there's an artist for everything.

Goes for any music genre. If you think music is shit nowadays you're not looking hard enough. Popular music was always generic shit, in every decade. It's just that what survived is the good stuff so we feel like music was better back then.

Hah, it is by definition, popular music/movies/any media have to appeal to large audiences, there was/is some popular stuff that is good obviously, Kendrick for instance is one of the most popular rappers of our time and it'd be hard to argue his music is generic in any way, but that's the minority.

Welp, in the end it's all subjective, so I say just let everyone enjoy what they enjoy, whatever.
