DJ Whoo Kid discussed the state of hip hop in a recent interview with Tim Westwood. Whoo Kid broke down the 'realism' that some fans associate with rappers, and explained that most of what they see is just entertainment as opposed to reality.
He also took a few subtle shots at a certain Miami superstar that has beefed with Whoo Kid's buddy 50 Cent over the years.
"The state of hip-hop is for the kids, dance music, snapping and occasionally gangsterism," Whoo Kid told Westwood. "But the gangsterism is not definited as reality. It's like they're in a movie. It's like Scarface part one, two, three, four, five, six, seven, eight, nine, ten. Do you believe Rick Ross is a gangster from his music? Like if you see him, if you never met him, would you believe he's gangster? Like he's threatening? Uh! Uh! Uhh! Uhhh! Whattt? I'm being serious too. There's no focus in hip-hop but it's cool. The kids are happy. There's good music out there still like Jay-Z, Kanye [West] with the open doorways, not being in the box and then there's Mims. [laughs] I'm sorry, I meant to say Drake. Thank God there's Drake out there."
