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.
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).

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's
