Hip-hop in the 80s was clean and inspirational, but it steadily became dirty thereafter. I only listen to Logic, Akala, Mike Shinoda, Eminem, Lupe Fiasco, and Kendrick Lamar. Sexual lyrics and having a fake image are the main selling points of mainstream rappers, but they copied these methods from Pop music genre that profited from dirty music initially (Madonna).1
I don't listen to hip hop or rap music that wasn't made in the 90's generally. There are some exceptions, I like old Kanye & some local rappers to my area, but mainstream hip hop culture is like 80% garbage.3

It's always been dirty. "I wanna sex you up" was a huge hit back in my day, was played all the time on the radio.
Rap has always been full of bitches and hoes, suck my dick bitch, fuck the po- leece, etc
The only "clean" music is the doo wop era of the 50"s and 60's2
