5 Ways Mainstream Culture Has Contributed to the Struggle of Hip-Hop Legends

A-Tribe-Called-Quest

Lack of Radio Play

While many radio stations have been dedicated to classic rock and country stations frequently keep older songs in rotation, hip-hop stars from the ’80s and ’90s struggle to find a musical platform today. Classic hip-hop stations have only recently started to emerge, but years without a mainstream platform for classic rap has already left some of the genre’s greats buried in the music industry’s distant memory. “In The History of the Eagles, singer Glenn Frey said that classic rock radio was the reason why a generation too young to remember ‘Hotel California’ firsthand became fans of the Eagles’ music in the ‘80s and ‘90s,” The Daily Beast’s Stereo Williams explained. Hip-hop stars from the same era aren’t provided the same luxury.
