    Hell Rell Discusses the Disappearance of “Conscious” Hip Hop: Is There a Conspiracy at Play?

    Former Dipset rapper Hell Rell has sparked controversy with his recent comments on the state of “conscious” Hip Hop in the industry. In a recent interview on Circle Da Block Radio, he suggested that music companies have purposely targeted and eliminated the genre because it was raising the frequency in the community.

    Rell pointed out that artists like Kid ‘N Play, Will Smith, and Poor Righteous Teachers used to be prominent in the industry, but now there is a lack of positive influences. He questioned the absence of new artists like Common Sense, Talib Kweli, and Mos Def, suggesting that the genre has been “wiped out.”

    Despite Rell’s claims, there are still many socially-minded rappers finding success in the industry today, such as Chance The Rapper, Rapsody, and JID. Artists like Kendrick Lamar and J. Cole have also been praised for addressing societal issues in their music.

    In other news, Rell’s former Dipset colleague Cam’ron found himself in a feud with model and podcaster Melyssa Ford after she refuted claims made in one of his recent freestyles. The ongoing drama between the two serves as a reminder of the complexities and controversies that can arise within the Hip Hop community.

    As the industry continues to evolve, it remains to be seen whether the conscious Hip Hop genre will make a resurgence or if new artists will continue to push boundaries and address important social issues through their music.
