West Coast's own The Game recently spoke about the current state of hip hop and why he may be the last of a dying group of rappers who still has a strong passion for rap. Game says that too many artists have become consumed with the luxurious aspects of having a career in hip hop.
"I just think that every now and then in hip hop, there's a dead space so we need some substance," he tells Billboard.com's The Juice. "I think that I just might be one of the last artists that really cares about hip hop and not rap, not the culture, not poppin' bottles, not the cars, chains, broads, I just actually care about nurturing and giving back to this sort of foundation on which I grew up on, which is real hip-hop."
