How Hip Hop culture evolve.

Do you watch Hip Hop movies? It can be about rappers,dancers & fashion but as long as it's a Hip Hop movie.One thing Hip Hop movies have in common is the rap battles are held at the streets.The dance battles are held at the streets.That's how Hip Hop was when it started.It used to be in the streets.It wasn't about money but respect.Those people were doing it for the culture.But now Hip Hop evolved.The way rappers & Hip Hop dancers dress today is not the way Rappers & Dancers used to dress in Hip Hop Culture.They used to wear oversized clothes now they're wearing skinny jeans.You know why Hip Hop keeps on evolving.Now it's 2021,There is Spotify & Apple Music.Rappers can sell their music anywhere online.So they decided to move with time & become commercial rappers.Money is now the influence in the Culture since Hip Hop is no longer in the streets only but online.Now people can make money thru bookings & can make a lot of money in the Culture because the culture evolved.Those who didn't change with change are still underground.Even the slang we use today in Hip Hop evolved.This is not the slang that were used back in the days.What is happening in Hip Hop today is not what gonna happen in 2060.Because the Culture keep evolving.Some do it for respect,some are in it for money.Some are in it because of the lifestyle.But when the change come those who resist change will suffer like Nokia when Android became a thing.
