Hip-Hop A’int Dead

Hip Hop Ain't Dead.jpg

I’m not here to argue whether or not the above statement “Hip-Hop Ain’t Dead” is true, but instead I’m here to let you know that hip-hop clubs and bars in the city are alive and well.

With the recent boom in EDM it seems impossible to find the good old hip-hop spots. I do love EDM, but I grew up dancing to Lil John (“Get Low”), 50 Cent (“In Da Club”), Young Joc (“It’s Going Down”) and all the other hip-hop artists that no longer seem relevant. And they may not have been the best rappers, but their songs are still some of the best  ‘bangers’ in the club. Whenever “Swag Surf” comes on you can be sure that the club is going to start rocking, it truly never fails. So if this is true, why do such few places play hip hop anymore??? I ask myself this question quite often, but luckily there are a few places that still understand the power of hip-hop. These places know that whether they play Biggie  or Fetty, the crowd will love them for it because we yearn for the music that taught us our first dance moves. Our arms and legs ache for movement other than fist pumping and jumping. We want to dougie. We want to nae nae. We want to DANCE. This is Hip-Hop!
