Hip Hop's Sound
I routinely ask myself why has hip hop fired the DJ and abandoned the drummer on most popular cd releases these days? Both are visually present in commercial ads & live performances but nowhere to be heard &/or rarely displayed in studio sessions!!
It would seem obvious for any pop or top 10 artist to feature a DJ especially considering most artist in the know know their history and how significant a role "disc jockeys & drummers have on any given record. I'm not here to blast any artist whom ignores or whom are oblivious to the renaissance of using scratching on a hit record but damn...where have all the cool back beats and scr scr scratching gone?I would love to hear a hit song made with all the elements that made hip hop what has evolved into today!!
