Pete Rock Goes Off On Rappers Chasing “The Bag”

Tiffany Brockworth |

Legendary producer Pete Rock says rappers are killing hip-hop by focusing on the bag instead of the music.

“They should change the music to WTF [facepalm emoji] tryna create a narrative that aint working,” he wrote on Instagram. “Pile driving the culture straight in the ground. We created real history! idk what da hell they creating today but it damn sure aint history or hip hop thats a fact.”

The producer says there is no intergity in hip-hop any more. 2023 was not a great year for hip-hop despite it being the 50th anniversary. There were very few Billboard number ones.

He continued: “We lost our integrity chasing the money. The bag as they say has become the problem and the focus point in the culture. Makes it corny when yall make it about money smh [corn emoji] Everyone extra sensitive about opinions smh. Soon as you have an opinion you’re a hater automatically lol. Clown sh-t [clown emoji] we all out here working to make better music. Why dont try and do the same thing.”
