New school rap music is all about having fun. Today's rappers aren't as concerned with lyrics which is why many of them are being labeled as mumble rappers. In a recent interview with Angie Martinez, rapper 6ix9ine admits he isn't lyrical and doesn't try to be. He actually considers himself " a troll that knows how to rap."

Old school hip-hop was definitely a vibe. Artist like Tupac and Ice Cube really took pride in their lyrics, and their music usually had a message. Tupac may have been a lot of things, but he produced socially-conscience, thought-provoking music—including "Brenda's Got a Baby" and “Holler if Ya Hear Me.” Take a listen to the old school playlist by Spotify below, and tell us what you think by voting.
