Rizzle Kicks Criticise Modern Hip-Hop Music: "I Don't Find That Inspiring"

The 'Traveller's Chant' pair say there is a "lack of intelligence" in the musical genre at the moment.

Rizzle Kicks have revealed they feel disappointed by the current state of hip-hop in the music industry.

'Mama Do The Hump' duo Jordan Stephens and Harley Alexander-Sule are currently preparing to return with their second studio album, but say too much hip-hop music now is based around each artist's ego.

"My personal take on hip-hop isn't really being satisfied currently," Jordan Stephens revealed to the Daily Star this week. "There's a big thing in America, a big hip-hop vibe that I feel is quite ego orientated and I don't find that inspiring.

"There are hip-hop artists who are able to say things that are phenomenal," he admitted, citing Eminem as "one of the bet poets ever", before adding: "There are other greats, but maybe there's a lack of intelligence."

The duo arrived back in 2011 with their debut album 'Stereo Typical' and are now set to return on 20th September with new record 'Roaring 20s'.

Rizzle Kicks will release new single 'Lost Generation' on 25th August.
