Zeppelin was/is great for thier time and their music deserves to live on forever as great music - from that era.
I love rap and hip hop, more so than any other form of music. Eminem is probably my favorite artist as well but not because he has sold millions of records, because he has lyrical skill that 99.9% of rappers don’t posses. It’s an art, much like all music. Sure there are always going to be people who have no talent other than looking good or a gimick that make it in the music scene, no matter the genre but I belive it’s the talent that makes you great. Not record sales.
Bands like Zepplin, the Stones, Beatles, The Who, BTO, Pink Floyed… ect are awesome and their music will stand the test of time because they are great artists and have tons of talent. I feel that same for some rap artists past and present. Tupac, Biggie, Eminem, Jay Z, Nas, Talib, Commom… these are artists who will be remembered for decades to come, much like the rock legends we have come to love over the years.
At least that’s how I feel.
