Will popular hip hop/rap continue to get slower?

In my recent exploration of the hip hop/rap scene, I've noticed a trend where the beats per minute (BPM) are slowing down. This shift seems to mirror the music industry's broader move towards more relaxed and introspective tunes. Yet, it's hard to say definitively if this pace will continue to decrease. Many artists are constantly innovating and could easily swing back towards faster tempos. Still, for now, slower rap appears to be the prevailing trend.
