    I been making my way through Jay-Z discography. I like Reasonable Doubt but vol 1, 2, and 3 are hella boring to me.

    A lot of Wu Tang songs sound really boring to me.

    They're just bars. There's no real melody. I'm sure if I printed out lyrics I'd appreciate it, but they don't sound fun to me. Fun songs to me are like Drake - 4PM in Calabasas, Kendrick Lamar - DNA, J.Cole - Neighbours, Vince Staples - Big Fish, etc.

    I like some 90's songs like Ice Cream and Atliens, but I can't listen to a full album cause it gets boring. 4:44 >>>>>>> any Jay-Z album for me. Is it really that hard to enjoy stuff before your time?

    Some people can't feel it if they didn't live it, which is fine. It wasn't meant for you anyway.

    You can't enjoy it because you are 18.

    You haven't lived enough to understand of appreciate it. Revisit it again at 25+.

    2pac was 18 with the life of a 25 year old when he was 25 he lived the life of a 40 year old.

    Lots of 90's artist sang about real adult shyt. I was just listening to this song by Lauryn Hill. shyt is timeless. It was deeper than the shallowness of a lot the songs you mentioned that were surface level deep. Many 90's artists lived their music. This song is a check point of why Lauryn never released another album.

    This. I got into classic hip-hop 10 years ago when I was 13. GTA San Andreas put me on :wow: I loved it from then just as I thought it sounded good rhythmically, but obviously as I grown older I have come to appreciate it so much more because I actually understand and relate to the themes and subjects addressed in the lyrics.

    "They're just bars. There's no real melody"

    Prediction: In 20 Years Black People Aren't Gonna Like Rap Music PERIOD

    Rap listeners have been conditioned to gravitate away from bars/words to melodies.

    Listeners are becoming more and more lazy when it comes to actual lyricism, and sing-songy, melodic, cat in the hat, Dr. Suess flows have taken precedent.

    OP is 18 so of course "words" will be a chore for him to listen to. Concentrating on every word a rapper says is becoming a thing of the past. Its more about "vibing" to a melodic flow over a hot beat. Subject matter be damned. Just a hot beat and catchy flow saying anything is all that's needed today to capture the attention of listeners.

    No offense to anybody reading this, but the "intelligence" in hip-hop overall has been drained severely. (That's a FACT, not an opinion)

    This melodic, sing-songy rap is like nursery rhymes to little kids. Its hypnotizing. Its catchy. It requires little to no work of the brain. Its easy to listen to and digest. Modern-day hip-hop for the most part is aimed at the equivalent of 6th graders.
