I thought the run the jewels started in 2013ish
I hate these backpack type fake rap lovers that talk about how shit rap is nowadays compared to the 90s. Rap is still alive. Tons of crazy good stuff out there. Even the OGs are still around making music. You haven't even bothered to look. You just see Migos and Drake on TV and think "see. All rap is shit now"
I think the "problem" is that mainstream hip hop in the 90's was stuff like Tribe, Public Enemy, Common, De La Soul, Biggie, Pax etc., where now it's trap rap and pop music with rap over it.
If NWA had come out today, no-one would have given a fuck, as its like everything else.
