Genre-Bending Acts & Fully-Streamed Projects Among "Hip Hop Trends We Want To See More Of"

Pepsi Pulse has compiled its list of "Hip Hop Trends We Want To See More Of."

The list of five “Hip Hop Trends We Want To See More Of” reflects the evolution of the culture. 

"Hip Hop is an ever-evolving art form, and as such, there are always emerging trends,” the article says. "Whether it’s a new sound, new technology, or even new slang, Hip Hop is always giving fans something new to talk about.”

One trend the article cites is “Moving Away From Regional Sound.” 

“It's getting harder and harder these days to tell where a Hip Hop artist is from…and that’s a great thing,” the Pepsi Pulse article says. "Sure, there’s nothing wrong with championing where you’re from and displaying your influences, but in recent years, Hip hop has finally been able to let go of its constrictions that relegate an artist to his or her region. Anyone not intimately familiar with a Childish Gambino or an A$AP Rocky would be hard-pressed to accurately guess where they grew up.”
