also hear "Front the bill" a lot.. does that mean Pay on time? as in Pay your phone bill on time or even in advance.

LOL...sound wise, it's a hard call. Everything in rap seems to come back with a new face. I always feel that the live instrument sound will never die, and people will always sample or flip older songs...but copyright issues have been making it hard to sample, and for the last 6-8 years, some of the best album cuts have been getting left off because the sample wasn't cleared.

I think the 80's style drums will always be flipped, and the overall 80's rap sound will always be re-juvenated. I don't think anything that's hot now would be hot in 5 years, although something could possibly evolve from the sounds out now. I'm sure that the South will still ride the slowest tempos, and the East and West will still use 90-95 BPM tracks the most.

well in 5 years digital music will have killed off cd sales for ever, a few djs and ol skoolaz will still rock vinyl, we will all be waiting on The Carter 5, Beyonce & Jigga will be havin marital probs, 50cent and Yayo will put out a crap GUnit album, there will be another 10.000 rappers called Yung so-n-so, production will get simpler and more Soulja Boy-esque, and apart from that nothing at all will be any different except petrol will be $10 a gallon (and thats no joke yall)

I think the conscious era will come back. 95% of these rappers just talk senseless. Some can make the senseless sound dope, the others really on dope-ass beatz and hooks. Everything gets recycled.
