Flavor Flav Says Jay Z, Nicki Aren't Hip Hop

Flavor Flav stated his belief that many of today's most popular rappers aren't hip hop. The Public Enemy hypeman told Gigwise that hip hop has lost it's uptempo, energetic past in favor of a slower vibe--which he says robs the genre of the "element of hip hop."

"I think the element of hip hop left when rap music started being created on a slow tempo," Flavor Flav explained. "It's just stayed there for years. Right now, a lot of Rap music today is being created at very low tempos."

"There's no more of that, 'Wave your hands in the air like you just don't care,' you know, something that makes you wanna get out there and breakdance," he said. "Rap music has lost that element right now, mainly over in America. There's not too many great hip hop records out there, but there are some great rap records. Lil Wayne is making some great rap records, Drake, Nicki Minaj, Ludacris, Jay-Z, Kendrick Lamar, 50 Cent, Snoop [Lion] - everybody is making great rap records, but it's not hip hop."
