    Everyone here still listen to new hip hop?

    what would you say your ratio of new and old and non-rap listening is?

    These days I'm probably 95% old stuff (80s up to 2014ish), 5% non-rap and 5% new stuff

    I'd like to get back to a point where I get excited about new releases again but nothing seems to be doing it for me recently save for the odd track here and there.

    For me I think it's 50% hip-hop and 50% other genres.

    I guess 80 to 90% of the hip-hop stuff I listen to is old(er) stuff, the other 10-20% is new stuff. I've got to admit that the new stuff doesn't get me excited like the stuff in the 80's and 90's, but I don't mind that too much.

    I try to keep it roughly 50/50 between old stuff and recent stuff.

    But since I made that 1990 was 30 years ago post on my blog the other day I've been on a 1990 nostalgia kick. Not just rap but other stuff I also liked at the time like Depeche Mode and Faith No More.

    I’m similar to you Step, mainly old stuff with a smattering of new bits, same with my vinyl buying.

    I barely have time for any rap music at the moment.

    Moving to a new country, loads on at work and a maniac toddler mean I tend to listen to more chilled music or podcasts if anything at all.



    Been meaning to make a best of 2019 and download Noz's year end list for my phone and just have no time.

    I'd say about 60% old, 40% new

    I check for new and old music daily.

    50-60 years worth of music from around the world to discover.. it never ends!! It's f*cking beautiful.

    Still listening to new stuff, maybe not as much as I used to mostly due to lack of time.
    Also check for old stuff that s new to me as well.

    In the last couple of years Id guess 60% of stuff I listen to is 80s/90s/early 2000s Hip Hop
    Probably 20% of stuff I listen to is new stuff that I see you guys post in the New Hip Hop thread or Youtube channels I follow like Blah, I listen to this stuff when Im on the go or chillin at a cafe (I do this a lot).
    And I guess the last 20% is all the other stuff old/new House, Disco etc.
