White Stripes frontman Jack White weighed in on why he’s not a hip-hop fan in an interview with Blender. He says, “In black music, you used to see a new thing every two years. First there was blues, then jazz, rock & roll, Motown, funk… It regenerated all the time. But hip-hop hasn’t regenerated in the last 15 years. People criticize our band for havin gour head in the ’60s, but hip-hop artists are considered cutting-edge even though they’re doing the same thing that was done in 1986. It’s a confusing double standard.”
