New generation of pop punk

I’m saying there’s an intangible about him that is off putting and makes him cheesy and disingenuous. That’s fine if you don’t see it...his pop punk music is as lame and bland as his “rap” music and he’s just a wannabe. Good for him for making money, bet he doesn’t make as much as you’d think being that he’s owned by the real Diddy lol

I think I know what you mean. Is this same criticism applicable to 90% of current mainstream / top 40 artists? 

Seems like you have difficulty relating to the new generation of pop music, which is probably historically like the most common reason people grow out of new music. You're getting old lol

Travis and MGK did the album live,

Hating on MGK for making a very good album because you didn't like him previously is like edgelords hating on blink even though they loved Self Titled but categorize them with All The Small Things

Aka your insides are weak, and edgy.

I don't like the dude, got bored after a few tracks on the album, and I also find him quite cringe - but Diddy's arguments are more cringy. 

Just let people like what they like, man.

Lol thank you, and you’re not wrong. I’m 34 so yes, I just can’t relate to MGK or get excited about high school musicals

It’s not a good album though, it’s lame and cringe

They can like what they like. Jesus Christ I don’t fault them for that. I said smoking weed doesn’t make him edgy, but I guess people will spend all day trying to argue why it is lol

The emo trap sound is undeniably a wave that is growing among high school kids (it used to be just trap and hip-hop until a few years ago) and a mainstream artist like MGK making that kind of music is a consequence of that. It's absolutely worth talking about it in that sense, even if you didn't like the album. What's good to me is just that kids are listening to some guitar music and it's cool if this helps any type of music featuring the guitar and drums survive and possibly even prosper again.

Can someone explain what the term “trap” means for music genres to me?

"trap" refers to a place where drug deals happen. the genre of music originated in the Southern US, and the lyricism revolves around the culture of traphouses.

musically: synthesized drums (hi-hats, kick drums, 808s, snare), bass-heavy, uses very few other instruments. supposed to be more atmospheric/about the vibes. crossed over to the mainstream in the 2010s - Drake, Migos, Future, Post Malone, Travis Scott. 

i enjoy Travis Scott, i think he's pretty creative.

MGK Is the next guest slated for SNL, so I’m assuming Travis comes with him. This should be Travis‘s second spot on the show if I’m not mistaken, which isnt a super rarity, but it’s pretty cool
