If it's so crap, why is it one of the most popular genres of the past 25 years?

You can't go by what is popular as being quality. Look at most pop culture and what gets the biggest following -- most of it's crap ESPECIALLY in the last 25 years. It's like the more technology "advances" the less people actually rely on talent.

I know this comment is meant in jest, but I really wish people would stop using "I'm so white" as some kind of weird form of self-deprecation. Nobody of any race should act like their culture is a punchline. People need to get past all this stuff. Like what you like.

There are SO many good 80's rap songs that the current generation are oblivious to... De La Soul. Rakim. PE. Run-DMC. I'mma make me an 80's rap playlist right now! :)

Looks like QM's age/knowledge is as limited as mine--songs are densely packed in 80s (four songs in three years) and 90s (11 songs in ten years), still strong but start to taper in the 00s (eight songs in ten years) then only three songs in the 2010s.

I also wonder if he considers his audience. The songs from the mid-90's to mid-2000's have the highest response rate, and I have gathered from the comments sections that the JetPunk community is not overrun with hip hop enthusiasts. Pretty much every song on here is an iconic rap song (except maybe the two most recent, which are too new to have that status). I got them all except Cardi B and Chamillionaire, and I have only a passing interest in hip hop. If you look at similar quizzes covering other music genres, you'll see that other quizzes have songs that demand a strong knowledge of the genre, whereas in the hip hop quizzes, it's mostly songs that everyone who was between age 10 and 30 when the song was released will recognize. QM probably knows that no one likes scoring low on a quiz, so he needs to favor really famous songs and songs from around 1990-2010 for people to do well. But I don't mean to speak for the man himself. That's just my impression.
