I could care less what everyone listens to. If people want to listen to rap, leave them be. I'm not a fan of the genre, I'd rather listen to some rock or metal. I don't hate rap, I just don't care. ;-;

Well most of the mainstream I do hate, but in the underground you can find some of the most real and poetic songs ever made. Country is alright. It's not rap's fault that it's face has to be Lil Wayne or 2 Chainz, when it should be Hopsin, N9na, Budd, or Shady. R.A.P. Rhythm Assisted Poetry

No point in hating. It only affects the hater and not in a good way. I prefer older rap and as a genre don't like it as much as rock. Why hate? There is a wide open grey area for everyone to enjoy parts of all good things. Who wants to be my friend?

It panders constant de-constructed English into a pandering anger-porn geared to young white boys that are enamored of young African Americans that tell them what is cool. The record companies know this very well and promote this. Murder, ra..pe, gang violence, drugs, the horrors of poverty on inner cities, suicide, incest, demeaning of all women as "ho's" and beeaches (basically objects to be used), are the central themes of most rap - now that I have become very familiar with it. Clever rhyming tricks (at least as appraised by the rap fan) and combining content that appears to have social relevance but is ultimately, in fact, exploitive of the listener, capitalizing on their lack of real world views, minorities repression, real racism, and a underlying glorification of violence and domination (read: prostitution) of females, along with formal rappers spewing out more porn (think Lil'Kim), and exciting high-hormonal white nitwits to buy this "music" - a poor, dumbed-down street poetry produced by billionaires pretending empathy with those living in poverty or gang ridden violence and drug addictions, continue to turn out this "art form" purely for profit by exploitation. Rap should be in its own genre - and that genre should never receive any comparison to "music". And yes, I've now listened to over a thousand rap tunes to prepare for a video shoot - which I turned down, disgusted with the lyrics being pumped out by this alternate form of porn.

You are an idiot. Do you live in poverty? Have you been surrounded by violence and oppression all your life? Rap is a staple in American culture. It is pure and real. Rap music is America. Has any form of music ever encompassed hardship and oppression as well as rap music? No. Never. Rap is simple, human, and effective. It is gritty and it is beautiful, and it has changed my life.

Your first comment about me proves my point.
Report as
It proves no point. Who are you to say that an entire genre of music is not in fact music. You have basically all of pop culture against you on this one. Quit being such a snob, you are not better than these people, these people's lives are very different from yours. I'd like to see you come up with a "cleaver rhyming trick," let alone a meaningful, well-written rap. Rap isn't about how cool it is to rape and murder people, it's about the real world, real living conditions, and real experiences. If you can't handle it, don't listen to it. But don't hate what you don't understand.

I know that this question has already been answered 16 times, but in my opinion, rap and hip-hop are the most human forms of modern/current music I have ever come across. It is almost universal because it is so communicative. I'm talking about straightforward rap here; meaningful, smart, deep stuff. Rap is a form of story-telling. Real rap isn't beotches and hoes and stuff, it's stories of oppression and overcoming hardships and coping in the real world.

You do not know "deep" - get an education and study literature abd make that same claim - you know vitriol - and yes, I did grow up in the inner city surrounded with violence, crime, and poverty. If rap is so "American" why do so many people hate it and find it disgusting while studio heads have told me blatantly, they are in it for profit? Keep listening to it 24/7 and stay in your bubble - it's your loss that you don't move beyond this genre of bad poetry and understand what a real masterpiece of music is. I never said you shouldn't listen to it 24/7 - that's your choice. But if you have to resort to name-calling as you did in the previous post - you've already lost the argument.

You're right, I do not have an education in literature, I am a high school student. But I have been in the band program at my school since I was in the 6th grade, I have taken music theory classes, I am in the school jazz band, and I have been listening to music all my life. I'm in an AP English class, and I love literature. I love bluegrass, classic rock, blues, punk , grunge, rock and metal of all sorts, folk music, hip-hop, rap, funk, R&B, and anything that has soul. I am musically literate, and I know my sht. Rap music is influential, meaningful, important, and if you listen to the right stuff, deep and poetic. It moves me, it makes me angry, it makes me cry, it turns me on, and it makes me stand up for myself against pampas individuals such as yourself. So, to repeat myself, you are an idiot. I don't hate on your country, so don't hate on my rap.

Your choice in entertainment is your business - but I know the business from an angle you do not know - production and the business model. You are precisely speaking in defense of their product which is exactly how they designed this to be. Since you are so musical, I hope you produce actual music in your future. Right now, rap speaks to you - as it is designed to do. But when you are older - other music may appeal to you more.
Report as
That is true, I have no idea what I'm going to be listening to in 5, 10, 20 years, but the reason why young people can be manipulated by over produced, producer controlled rap is because it is so relatable and human. When I say "good rap," I'm not talking about Li'l Wayne and Drake. I'm talking about down-to-earth, genuine rap. I could list one hundred reasons why The Beatles suck, and it wouldn't effect the way anybody think about them because no one cares. Rap has an enormous community of fans and followers, not because we have all been brainwashed (well, maybe some of us [i.e. Li'l Wayne, Drake]) but because it's good music.

If I understood rap music I might have a reason to hate it, but the percussion is good. Too much protesting mootness.

It's not music. Call it poetry call it rap, it's not music. If you call it poetry then it's poetry with a terrible message. The people that make it are despicable, although there are exceptions, and need to get a grip on reality. It is a major force behind the entitlement mentality and is a major force in keeping those in inner city areas down. In the suburbs it sends kids the message that killing, violence, and the objectifying of women is fantastic. Rap fuels racism and rap fuels negative stereotypes. It fuels stereotypes in whites of blacks and in blacks of whites. It's a scourge on our society
