I must say that Walk This Way was one of the most important songs in Hip Hop History. To get Aerosmith to agree to that song was a big time risk that benefited both parties. Without that song, I'm not sure if Rap/Hip Hop got as big as it did.

Hmmm

I agree that both took a big risk but...

Rap had already been sampling Led Zepplin, AC/DC, and what not. IF not Run DMC and Aerosmith it could have been another pairing. Where they lucked out was both rockers and rappers could dig it. The video for it also showed both cultures could make music together--in that they had a LIVE Areosmith and a LIVE RUN DMC. The only other time both groups were live together would have been Public Enemy and Anthrax for "Bring the Noise."

I have to say though, that while I like Gangster Rap, its proliferation throughout the genre of rap over the last 20 years has stunted raps growth. You just don't have the variety you had in the 80s through the 90s. And the music machine is pushing the pimp, player, gangster anthems even more so now.


The problem with rock music now is its own cycles. 80s had hair metal, 90's grunge/alternative, 00s numetal/emo, and now in the 10s its trying to cycle itself back to older styles. And each decade has the originators or unique groups that will still be around but after that first wave most of the later on groups sound like everyone else and end up falling off due to not standing out.

different for the sake of being different. "hey, has this been done before?" "i don't think so! let's try it out!" retarded to say the least 04-cheers what kind of weird genre are they gonna come up with now, raptry? actually sounds kinda cool, if you didn't know what it entailed
