Define old hip hop (pre 98) vs. new hip hop (post 98)

Production styles


80’s - drum machines, samples, cuts, DJ driven
90’s - MPC, ASR10, samples
00’s - Atlanta “crunk sound” becomes mainstream/cash money, more original compositions than sample based
10’s - trap


How Commercialization of hip hop post 98 has changed the landscape of hip hop production
Producing in early 2000’s vs. now
Emergence of type beat production in recent years
Is production more original post 98 or pre 98? Is it better?
