Dalek Aims To Tear Down Commercial Rap Completely

Craig D. Lindsey of the Houston Press talked with New Jersey rapper Dälek (real name: Will Brookes) who wants audiences to know that he and others like him are aiming to tear down hip hop as we know it completely. He says commercial rap has already done its part to bury the genre alive. “That stuff has more in common with Britney Spears than it does with or ,” he says. “It’s all a packaged product, [so] from that angle of it, yeah, hip-hop is dead. But then you have other underground artists that are doing music to express what they’re going through in their life, and that’s what hip-hop is always about. So I don’t see hip-hop, in that sense, dying at all.”
