Rap's New Generation

Genre: Hip-Hop/Rap; Status: In Season

There’s not enough rump-shaking on the bizarre concept album Rap’s New Generation, which features songs inspired by — yet sounding nothing like — the rap classics of such hip-hop innovators as Run-D.M.C. Despite some bumpin’ beats and great lines (”I’m hoochin’ Susan for her Lucci”), unfunny skits and repetitive grooves make these new jacks come off more Generation Ex than Generation Next. C
