These days music is different, especially hip-hop. A rapper, XXXTENTACION raps all sorts of different ways, sad, calm, normal, crazy etc. Old songs were like that too, but they sounded different because they were made back then and they didn’t have the same technology as we do today.

Jahsen Dwyane onfroy, known as XXXTENATCION, was born January 23, 1998. He was raised in Plantation, Florida. Jahsen is a New School rapper. He raps in all sorts of different ways. He has been to jail many times.  According to xxlmag.com XXXTENTACION recently released a new album. There mostly sad songs. Those are some songs people “simp” too. Some people just listen to it. Lately, X has been making a lot of sad songs. We´ll see what he makes next.

He was one of the best-selling music artists of all time. “Keep Ya Head Up” is Tupac’s best individual performance.

Jahsen Dwayne onfroy and Tupac Shakur are to very different rappers as you can tell. They both sing about different things. New school rappers talk about drugs, women, and money it’s all they talk about. For example, one student states “Old school rappers rapped about life, new school rappers talk about money, drugs, and women.”However old school rappers talk about what’s going on in their life and about what issues they´re having. Music today is different from when it was back then.
