Broadening Hip Hop Topics?

"The reason that you turn off the hip-hop as you mature is because there’s not enough of what you’re going through in your life currently. There’s not a lot of people who have come of age in rap because it’s only 30 years old. As more people come of age, hopefully the topics get broader and then the audience will stay around longer." --Jay-Z

This is one of the reasons why Jay is soo darn appreciated and liked by many. It's because while he has quite a few songs that really don't talk about anything of substance, he also has very many songs that speak on the truth. Most times it's HIS truth, the stuff he's experienced and went through. That's why people flock to him most of the time. He even said that on that Fade to Black tour/ dvd, he just kept it real and stayed who he was. - he could talk about his self all day- anyway just thought I'd throw the out there because I like him too personally (but I don't listen all the time)
