I've only heard one track of his. I don't know him that well, but Khaled doesn't seem to be doing anything that Funkmaster Flex, DJ Clue, Chuck Chillout and Red Alert did better in the 80's, 90's or 00's.

Acts like him, Chance the rapper, Macklemoore, etc are industry plants. You mean to tell me these people just blow up without no promotion and get showered with grammys and none of their songs play on the radio?

Old school music was trendy in 2013... but that resulted in a shitload of tragic lawsuits. It's kinda sad cause those artists just wanna bring up a sound [in that case, synth-disco influenced music] to the facade of mainstream music, but you have these old people suing them for "too much influence". This garbage by DJ Khaled is on its way to debut on top of Billboard Hot 100... it's getting worse every year, this whole tropical urban trap infused bullshit is uninspiring as fuck... like, it's as lame as a generic theme song for a hip hop show. This urban wave was seen before in 2005-2009 with Akon, T-Pain, Lil Wayne, Flo Rida and other auto-tune artists, but I kinda prefer those songs over this crap... maybe nostalgia? maybe actually the production of those songs never felt as bland and empty as these songs do. Whatever, it's a shitty bandwagon everyone with gold chains and grilled teeth jumps on, will be forgotten in a matter of months. To prove my point, the songs (classics) that will be remembered from this decade are Rolling In the Deep, Uptown Funk, Fuck You, Get Lucky, We Found Love, We Are Young, Somebody that I Used to Know, Do I Wanna Know... thankfully GOOD songs more or less, this crap will end up in garbage oblivion where it belongs. DJ Khaled will end up having a talk show interviewing washed up models, Chance will sink once his "I don't belong to a label, I'm a rebel against the system" act dries off... and of course, losers like Quavos and Migos, Future and Gucci Mane are surely living the heyday of their careers, with Atlanta hip hop music [trap] being the hot sound at the moment, but they will all become part of a craze. No work to be remembered, no defining statements...

Fair points. But fans will have a greater hand in "curating" the legacies of 2010's music than fans of prior eras did.

These days, audiences are left to their own devices to find quality music. We can't simply turn on the radio or the TV and have it fall in our laps, like it did in the 70s and 80s. Fortunately, we have the tools to find it.

The under-the-radar acts are carrying the "old school music" banner proudly, and are even making creative, distinct sounds of their own. They need to be recognized. We know who they are. If we don't, we can find out.

I'm pretty sure the music popular now is quality to today's audience, just like that old music is quality to you. I have younger relatives and they're into what's on the radio now. They're not into many older acts, it's old school and played out or "soulful" to some of them. "Soulful" is not really a compliment either. lol Millions of people are not going to watch Youtube videos of stuff they don't like. There's some that click on videos to troll whatever it is, but that's not the majority of the veiws. That music you like was bad to a lot of the WWII audience who was into Glenn Miller or something. Frank Sinatra put down rock n roll when it first came out, so did some preachers. My grandfather didn't like any music that wasn't blues. I also have relatives that called secular music the "Devil's music" and didn't want it played in their house. They only listened to gospel, and not the Kirk Franklin/Mary Mary kind either. During the big band jazz era, there were older people putting that down and the flapper generation who listened to that music. So there's always been people who didn't like currently popular music. In the same way, in the future Soulja Boy and Akon are going to be the nostalgia acts for today's audience and they're likely going to say whatever is popular in the future is bad. That's just how it works.

For 65 years straight, the #1 genre in music, selling wise, was rock n' roll worldwide. Last year (2017) in June, it got de-crowned by hip hop. Hip hop is the #1 genre. It's hip hop - rock - country - pop or pop - country. ~ Pras

Yea its terrible. I would advise not to listen to the radio and just listen to the artists you like or oldies. There are some artists like Bruno Mars who try to bring old school sounds into the mainstream but he gets a lot of flack shrug We won't see another music renaissance from with this generation. The mainstream music industry is a dying business and they are not about real music anymore.

MD -- you're preaching, quite literally, to the choir. As you may already know, I've made the same relativist argument many times in this forum. (MANY times.) But you miss my point.

Today, not only is the discretion of the so-called radio DJ shrinking, the footprint of the music industry as a whole seems to be as well. Audiences can now pick and choose which songs they want to hear, instead of purchasing albums. With a smaller industry footprint, audiences across age lines -- not just the middle-agers -- look for their own sounds.

Heck, most of the albums I bought in the last few years were made by artists young enough to be my children. So generational preference has little to do with it. "Quality sounds" come from everywhere, be they established middle-aged artists like Maxwell, or young upstarts like Anderson .Paak or Hiatus Kaiyote.

That's what I meant.

peace

Youtube is where people go to choose what they want to hear. The videos with the most amount of views are songs like What Does The Fox Say?, Black Beatles, & Gangnam Style. With oldies it's Thriller, U Can't Touch This, Ice Ice Baby, In The Air Tonight, Final Countdown, Living On A Prayer, etc. So that says to me those songs have the most wide appeal, not acts like Hiatus Kaiyote. The DJ Khaled song the thread is about was uploaded on April 28, 2017 and as of this moment has 66,813,325 views. Khaled is already popular himself, and having other currently big acts like Lil Wayne, Justin Beiber, & Chance The Rappper will draw their fans to the video too. So the song might hit the Top 10 in a few weeks. Those big songs are more likely to be on future Time Life CD sets sold on infomercials, if those kinds of compilations are still sold in the future. They might be used in Disney movies or movies about the early 2000s. Just like I hear Ice Ice Baby and Don't Stop Believing in different media today.

Yeah. I'm sure it's just "this kinda shit".

And the laugh out loud is nice touch. Let's you play the "I was only joking" card.

wow.

.

TOO EASY to "pile on" here.. so this time I am not going to resist.

.

this video - I won't call it a "music" video as this is not even close to being MUSIC - is completely

emblematic of the garbage/waste/TRASH that passes (BARELY) for popular music today.

.

as soon as I see Justin Beiber involved, I know the quality is going to be low. VERY low.

then.. Wiz Khalifa drops the already-low quality content of this video - by at least another 25 - 50%.

then on top of that.. Lil Wayne (is that his name??) waddles in & drops this the "quality" of this video

WELL INTO THE NEGATIVE QUADRUPLE DIGITS.

.

as typical with videos of "music" like this..

the participants

(no - I can't even bring myself to call any of them actual "performers" so DON'T expect me to)

can only manage to brag about themselves & how many females they can pick up

&/or how much they can drink or smoke &/or what sort of clothes they wear or cars they drive.

.

nice.

.

not that (real) pop music has to be deep or thought-provoking or life-changing..

but at least it should bring SOMETHING of.. worth to the table.

.

my daughter is 9 & my son will turn 5 later this month.

those of you who know/love/respect/appreciate REAL MUSIC like I do -

you know DAMN WELL that I am filling my children's ears with the likes of

James Brown

Aretha

Sly Stone

Earth Wind & Fire

Prince

Michael Jackson

Steely Dan

Chaka Khan

&

ALL THE OTHER TRUE, LEGITIMATE SINGERS & MUSICIANS

WHO ACTUALLY HAVE TALENT.

.

back in the 80s through about the mid-90s

(this is my own estimate)

if you actually had rap skills you could perform as a rapper for at least 5 years

(LL Cool J, Salt N Pepa, etc - PLEASE KNOW I am FAR from being "knowledgable" about most hip-hop..)

since the millenium

a "good rapper" might have 3 years of "success" - if they are lucky.

most people's ALREADY SHORT attention spans & fickleness leave little room for any of today's

"sound participants"

to make too much of an impression.

many others here on the org have also correctly said that the music & radio industries have also

contributed NEGATIVELY to the state of today's so-called "popular music".

.

it would be GREAT to hear/SEE someone with actual musical ability be nurtured & develop & grow & be challenged as an artist..

once, however, that bar is lowered..

it's VERY VERY

VERY

hard to raise it again.

I'll see you tonight..
in ALL MY DREAMS..
