It is easier than ever to become a rapper, which is both a good and bad thing. Even in harsh economic times, the people love a good laugh. Rappers who are extremely underwhelming, historically, are laughed out of the rap game. In the current day and age, however, they gain stardom and sometimes fortune through their lack of talent.
Because of this new trend, it has become an uphill battle for those who are truly trying to uplift the craft. GT is among the newcomers who is trying to essentially “bring hip hop back.” Though he understands there are many different forms of hip hop, the style he represents has suffered.
On his “Stampede” single, GT brings back true lyricism at a time when rappers only use big words for the sake of using big words. But, as far as providing true lyrics, which actually make sense, GT brings this back. His “Stampede” single truly lives up to it’s title, because he storms in with a hardcore, old school, beat, which exhibits “real hip hop.”
In less than a month, GT’s “Stampede” has been met with strong critical reviews and has been embraced by those hip hop fans who have been looking for something refreshing.
