Passing the torch to the new guys seems to be the theme this year. I remember when Busta Ryhmes and Q-Tip made a song about not being able to pass the torch due to the lack of talent in the music biz. West Coast rapper Snoop Dogg is teaming up with the new talents of Wiz Khalifa in an up and coming movie called, "High School" and the two also talk more about collaborations for those old schoolers and those Taylors to enjoy. Jay-z is making a statement with his Roc Nation label signing acts like Jay Electronica and the talented J. Cole. Its been a while for our generation of rappers to get there overdue shine because of so many listeners converting from real hip hop to commercial rap. This is the influential year for the previous generations to season the new generation of HIP HOP!
