DMC of the legendary RUN-DMC has a problem with the state of today’s Hip-Hop. He said today’s rappers have a “lack of responsibility.”

DMC said in a recent interview,

“There was a time when as soon something happened in media … that happened historically we jumped on it. This generation sits back because they think it’s not cool to talk about doing something right […] These kids now get more attention if they talk about their Xanax problem and how much lean and codeine they take. RUN-DMC smoked more weed than God could possibly grow on this green earth. We never put those concepts and images on record.”

DMC went on saying, “I drank more liquor than the earth could produce, but I never put those images and concepts on record.”

What do you think? Is this a generational thing? Do you think times have truly changed? Are today’s performers too honest about their personal lives?
