It’s today’s great big hip hop debate.
Following the untimely passing of Lil’ Peep earlier this week, the topic of content in hip hop has come to the forefront, including lyrics about drug usage.
It’s another classic debate of older generation versus new generation, but is there a point being made here?
21 Savage decided to weigh in on the subject and give his opinion on the matter.

T.I. has had a successful career and worked on music from both sides of the generation gap. Surprisingly to some, he actually agreed with some of what 21 had to say.
See his response below.
What do you think?
@21savage lil bro speaking real truth tho. The fact of the matter is… There’s been good,bad, great,mediocre artists,&otherwise in EVERY generation …. Even ours(2000s) , The Founding era (80s) & the golden era of the 90s. They’re not the only generation to make “user music” either. Can anyone remember a Lil album called “The Chronic”? Or hit Recs like “Sippin on some Sizzurp”…. Regardless of the subject matter…This is THEY TIME. Couldn’t nobody tell us how to run ours,or make us sound how they thought we should… Live ya life & do ya stuff young’n. Just bare with us,&try to understand …. y’all niggaz kinda different & take some getting used to. As the elders gotta understand they’re SUCCESS JUSTIFIES the CHANGE. The Numbers DONT LIE!!! Can’t hate on that.
