Will Emo Rap Last Long in Hip-Hop?

The way hip-hop has been over the last few years, it is hard to tell which styles will stay and which will go. Emo Rap has been around for quite some time but just started to make its claim in hip-hop. After the emergence of “XO Tour Llif3” Lil’ Uzi was able to grow the entire Emo Rap market to where it is today. Since then we have seen many similar artist get stain in hip-hop with the same style. XXXTentacion, Lil’ Xan, and Juice WRLD are some that have taken advantage of the opportunity. With catchy vibes and relatable lyrics, it is easy to see why these artist as well as their songs  have taken off. Currently the four names above total over 50 million monthly listeners on just Spotify alone. To see the market grow is something special. Typically artists like this do not get big recognition. But with full support form the hip-hop community there is much reason to believe it might stick around for some time. We have seen mainstream artist collaborate with emo rappers. Uzi has been in tons of features including rappers like Future, Migos, Travis Scott and many others. While X was a feature in Kodak Black’s hit single “Roll in Peace” and Lil’ Xan has his own song on Diplo’s most recent album. As more artist rise to the scene, there will surely be a larger role for them to fill in the rap game as well. Whether you like it or not, emo rap will most likely continue to grow and become a platform for many new artists.
