I guess a better question for this is who and what is HH actually for? At other blue blood schools, it's obviously a hype/recruiting/entertainment event, shown by things like lil yachty (who is extremely popular with kids under like 22 in particular) at Kansas and Drake performing and even warming up with the team at BBM a few years ago.
Should Hoosier hysteria be a strict and focused basketball event like some want or should it be more of a recruiting entertainment event like what other schools are doing?

I'm all for it being a recruiting entertainment event. I think the fans would like it too. I mean, we already have the dance intros, a 3 point shootout and a dunk contest so it's obvious that we're trying to make it entertaining. Might as well continue that and mold it to make it even more attractive to recruits. We want players coming away thinking that IU is a fun place to be.

I was at Samscum's last Histeria or Midnight Madness.
Lots of really loud Rap,high profile recruits and probation hovering in the air.What a strange night.
I thought the music was kind of cool though and I'm an old white guy. Really dont see what it hurts.

2018 PG Kihei Clark just verbally committed to Virginia, per his coach | Story: scout.com/college/basket…
This kid was a verbal commitment to UC Davis and then blew up at the peach jam and won MVP of the finals. Opened back up after and now committed to Virginia. I always feel bad for the mid major in these instances, if he has a terrible weekend he is still committed to UC Davis

This won't be a popular opinion, but all well.
Anyone remember the South Park episode where Randy tried listening to tween wave?  Remember what he actually heard?  That is literally what every rap "song" (using that term insultingly loosely) ever sounds like.  I just saved everyone time and brain cells, you're welcome.
Just because the garbage is popular doesn't mean it's good.

Give me Motown any day over rap! but I'm old too. I don't even like what passes for Country today. My fears are coming to pass, I'm turning into my parents! Lol

I think the high school should be very ecstatic to have Lavar out of its hair and meddling in its program.

If you watched South Park I question your actual concern for time and brain cells...

Today’s country is actually pop. I’m a lot younger than you and you can’t pay me to listen to that crap.

I personally don’t like the music(I do like some old Rap) but if that’s what these kids like why not play it? HH is just as much for them as it is for the fans and if recruits and players like it then only good things can come from it.

^^THIS!^^
And fwiw, it's not just for the recruits, a lot of the students are mucho into it too.
I'm not a big hip hop fan, but each generation has their own music, and featuring that music is only natural.

I'm a fan of most music. I'll be honest, I've always liked rap. From the early 90's stuff to some of the current stuff. I don't like all of it. I have my favorites.

I wouldn't see a problem at all with having a Drake-like performance in the middle of the event.

It wouldn't care to have a bunch of cursing though at a venue like that. It'd have to be radio friendly.

I can do with it or without it, but the students would mostly love it.
