Rapper Q-TIP is mourning the demise of hip-hop, because he's sure the genre is heading for a slow death. The A Tribe Called Quest star claims rap is destined for the same demise disco suffered, if the latest batch of stars can't reinvent the musical genre in time. He tells celebrity fan Leonardo DiCaprio in the latest edition of Interview magazine, "I think it's pretty evident - and everybody says it - that hip-hop is definitely not as good as it once was. It's sort of like disco was. "There was a time when disco was the s**t and Steve Rubell had Studio 54. But the minute you heard Disco Duck by Rick Dees, that was the telltale sign that disco was over. I think that if hip-hop continues on the path that it seems like it's going down, then it looks like it's not going to hold up."
