12681944, is it still cool?

i would argue it's been on a fast track to uncool for a while. pretty much any music i really cared about in my life is uncool to like, but i still love it. public figures still rap, so you can hear rapping on popular songs, but i don't feel like hip-hop is seen as cool anymore by the masses. it's probably cool to middle aged and old people who are behind the times, and it's eternally cool to us music people, but i'm going to have to disagree with hip-hop being widely perceived as cool in 2014.
