    This is not rap but it is progression into something else. Death Grips

    Well that's why rap sucks now. These clowns don't care about making good music. I mean could you ever picture 2Pac or Biggie rapping with a country star I mean seriously?

    Yep... sure could...

    There are many rap artists that appreciate country music and vice/versa... and they ALL love money...

    Taylor Swift is the biggest thing in music right now, why wouldn't they collaborate? Big money...

    Wouldn't be a stretch at all...

    Sorry I just couldn't see it. I love her and her music btw, but it's just really weird seeing her doing a song with a rapper. Just really weird.

    It's happened forever... and will continue... so get used to it...

    The bottom line is that any successful artist moves to the rich side of town no matter the genre... and they will ride on the coattails of anyone they can...

    There's still The Roots and Talib Kweli so all hope is not lost.

    Good rap died in the late 90's. Lil Wayne can't **** with Mobb Deep, A Tribe Called Quest, or EPMD.

    How could you forget the two baddest rappers ever 2Pac and Biggie? Those you mentioned would great obviously, but I'd also like to add Ice Cube, Snoop, and Dre.

    Yeah, but Talib, and the Roots among others are the only hope for current hip-hop now. (although the Roots latest was questionable) They contuinue to put out quality music. Those you mentioned are either dead or resting on their laurels.

    There's a world of difference between rap like what pac did and modern hip hop like B.O.B. They're not even really comparable. I like both of them for what they are or were.

    Seriously, ...

    Dr. Seuss was the original and best rapper.

    "Green eggs and ham" was one of my favorites.

    Let's see Rap timeline.

    80's guys like funk master flash were seen as real "rappers" and N.W.A. Were seen as Wanna be thugs who were dressing like women just a few years prior. And yes there are tons of pictures of Dr Dre wearing makeup and eyeshadow when just prior to nwa.

    90's came and it went to "drug and thug" rappers. guys from the 80's claiming the wanna be's out then had never really been in gangs just acted like they had.

    2000's came and it was all about the bling bling. Dmx once put in his song, how much your watch cost? You about to get your watch lost!

    Now the op is saying Taylor swift calorborating with the industry somehow lessens the game.

    The cycle will never end. For every generations 50 cent, there's been a Kanye west to balance it out.

    Dude, you can't leave out Lupe Fiasco. Guy is the best rapper there is right now. Atmosphere is also still putting out good stuff...and it's hard not to like Chiddy Bang and Mac Miller, even if they are a little bit more poppy.
    Yep. Not to mention Taylor Swift and T-Pain, Jason Aldean and Ludacris, Willie also did a song with Wyclef, who did a different song with Kenny Rogers.

    Not country, but Jay-Z made an entire album with Linkin Park, and Bone Thugs have made a lot of tracks with influence from outside the genre.

    Ever since Aerosmith and Run DMC came out with "Walk this Way," rappers and artists from other genres have been doing lots of stuff together. Hell, referring to the OP, BoB's first big hit, "Airplanes," featured Hailey Williams (I think) from Paramore.
