Two years ago, Murs examined rap’s generational gap in an episode of HipHopDX’s The Breakdown. But has the conflict between old and young heads gotten any better since then? New host Page Kennedy looks to determine the current state of affairs in the latest edition of The Breakdown.

Kennedy highlights how J. Cole and other “middle child” rappers have played a major role in bridging the gap. For example, the Dreamville founder’s ability to build relationships with artists such as Lil Pump and Young Thug has proven to be a unifying force within Hip Hop.
