Welcome to @newgenrap, a rap, and hip-hop-focused Instagram account.
“When it comes to posting on @newgenrap, I’m limited to only the content and videos available on Instagram, whereas with a playlist I’m able to share my own music taste.”
Tell me a bit about your page @newgenrap
Started the page in February 2018, was just a fun thing to do. My goal was to hit 20k by the end of 2018 until my page started taking off and I hit that goal in 3 months.
How would you describe the new generation of rap?
In one word, talented. There are so many young artists killing it right now, music is changing and rap is no different, which is why I think the new generation gets a lot of uncalled for hate.
Hottest artist in the game right now?
DaBaby’s rise has been dope to see, he seems like he hasn’t let the fame change him from how he is as a person which I respect a lot.
What’s more important, music; or lyrics? Why?
Everyone has their own preferences and taste, two people may have the same opinion but different views so it depends on the listener.
Who is an up and coming artist you think is going to blow up soon?
If you could interview one artist for @newgenrap, who would it be? (dead or alive)
I’d say most likely X. Unfortunately, his death came at a time I was really starting to connect with and enjoy his music.
