Will.i.am says It Doesn’t Take Much Skill to Make Hip Hop in its Current State

radiofacts.comLet’s just say that producer/rapper, Will.i.am is not happy with right now.  In an interview with Rolling Stone, the Los Angeles native let it be known that he feels anybody can nowadays based on the level of execution that is currently popular.

“What’s the number-one sport on the planet? Soccer, because anyone can play it. The problem with hip-hop is everybody could do it. It doesn’t take much fucking skill right now to make hip-hop. It’s become the lowest-hanging fruit. It’s no longer about Rakim-level, Nas-level, not the deep, metaphorical simile shit. Out of respect for the Nases of the world, let’s not call it hip-hop. Let’s say that’s rap…”

Will.i.am had more to say as well but those are pretty strong words and I’m sure there are quite a few that would agree with his sentiments.  Do you agree with Will? Has hip-hop lost its mojo as far as skill level?  Has it become more of a hustle than an art?
