LOL!! Matt D started the thread I was thinking about the other day! It just gets soooo annoying when everything you hear on MTV is "shake ya ass", "clap, clap, clap" and "yo". Thank God there's radio21 - they're playing "Fire" by The Who right now.

A few problems with this program: There's no "Hell Yeah" option (I guess it must be available in the Dr. Dre upgrade patch), and no alcoholic beverage section either.

The topic is misleading, though. Calling rap "music" is a bit of a streach.  Big grin

Ahem, rap music is more than that dumb little picture. R&B roots go way back beyond many genres of music that you probably listen to.

The music that people are just throwing together today with little varied subject matter hardly qualifies as rap, more as dance or showoff music, not that with the supposedly little talent required to piece such tunes together (as you imply) you could make a hit yourself...

If you knew a little better about genre classification, or possibly what talent is, you would not reduce the name of rap to what you just have.  Pissed

Rap for the most part sucks. I happen to own one rap CD amongst my countless Hardcore 7"'s. I own Dr.Dre's "the Chronic" The album is so funny to lsiten to. But yeah, I agree Rap and R&B really do suck. I respect those who PLAY THEIR OWN INSTRUMENTS!

I must be shallow as well. I agree. Rap, for the most part, does suck on a wide basis today.

I give exception to a select few artists who really do have talent at it. I respect them for having talent. Rap is not my thing though, I'm not into that kind of music, but I can respect when someone does have talent. It does help if they have a credible life to go along with it though.

But I'll just say that I agree, 96% of rap sucks, and that which doesn't suck, rarely appeals to me anyway. Hope that the fact that I'm not a rap fan doesnt mean that I'm "shallow".

I love the picture. Big grin

Yeah, if I had computers to make my beats and I could suit my lyrics to the rythym there would be no problem.

Actually, it shows how shallow you are. You listen to music that glorifies everything from rape to murder to drug use, and the pathetic thing is that the African-American community supports this. I cant figure out for the life of me why people glorify rap. If you genuinely like rap because of the music, congratulations, you have no taste.

I have to agree with Covert. All of you people that sit back and say rap music sucks etc are either going by what you hear from the media, or your own personal bias. If you do not like it, hey, to each their own, but that does not mean it sucks. And those that "do not like it", I am willing to bet have never heard real rap music.

There are rappers that play their own instruments. And for those that think that is a 'good' argument, or that they 'steal' beats is a good argument are sadly mistaken. While it may seem 'easy' to program a beat, it isn't. To come up with a beat, that is usually overlayed with other beats as well, mix in samples, voice samples, etc. and have it hit is a tough task. All who say its easy or criticise about the instruments, I'd be willing to bet you couldn't produce a beat to save your life. Also, when it comes to sampling, rap music has given new life to forgotten music, or revived once popular music all over again. I bet those artists collecting large royalties from samples are not crying.

97% of you need to stop being ignorant, because anyone who believes Mr. Reel to Reel's picture is "so true" doesn't know their ass from a hole in the ground, much less anything about real rap music. Whether its about the roots of the music, true meanings, and the fact there is a solid music much deeper than the "hoes, bitches, and muthafuckas" you all think you know so much about.

Go ahead and not like rap music, but don't sit there and say it sucks, cause you know nothing about it, or just don't like it.

Speaking for all African Americans? Doesn't that seem a bit stereotypical?

Furthermore, you're implying that the African-American community supports murder and drug use. Jcs17, while I can disagree with your opinions I usually respect you, but isn't that going a bit too far?

I cant figure out for the life of me why people glorify rap

I can't figure out for the life of me why people glorify teeny pop, but it happens.

If you genuinely like rap because of the music, congratulations, you have no taste.

Isn't that subjective?

Jcs17

I could send you a whole rap cd full of songs I made that do not glorify "rape to murder to drug use."

I have heard many kinds of music, and I most certainly can say the only entire category of music I have heard entirely devoid of references to "rape to murder to drug use" is classical, and in those songs I heard nobody talks either.

So Jcs you must only listen to classical music if you use that argument.

Secondly, you mention African Americans. Well I wouldn't bring race into it, but the only rapper I have heard talk about rape in his songs is Eminem, who doesn't look very African American to me.

Anyways, how does it show how shallow I am? What because my horizons aren't broad? Well I know a lot about airplanes...

The only reason I mentioned shallowness is in reference to Shamrock damning the whole genre of rap. I don't know what you like, but I'm pretty sure you would flame the hell out of me if I said whatever your pastime is plain old sucks.

Could you make a beat and ride it?

Yeah, if I had computers to make my beats and I could suit my lyrics to the rythym there would be no problem.


Yeah right, but there is more to making something that sounds coherent and would meet Shamrock's requirement of "PLAY THEIR OWN INSTRUMENTS." Not to mention nobody probably would listen to yours.

I was once into rap, my brothers are still into it, real underground rap. Like unsigned people, not the bling bling crap.

Covert -
I am in a band, and we make our own music and "ride" it. The reason I think rap sucks is becasue I dont like the style of music. But the content can be pretty cool sometimes. I support anyone who speaks their mind and how ever they may choose to.

Jcs17 -
I don't condone those sort of things, but that is their life they are rapping about. My band are songs about heartbreak and kicking heartbreaks ass. (too hard to expalin) I am singing about my life. They are rapping about their life.

S-Heavy. I respect that you do not like rap, but to say it in turn sucks is messed up. If I don't like say your band.....that doesn't mean you guys suck.

When it comes to Jcs on this. Don't waste your time addressing him. It's clear that Jcs' taste in music is gospel. Chances are, he has never had to deal with anything that rap music addresses as well.....which go deeper than than "glorifies everything from rape to murder to drug use".

KROC - sorry about my comment, I shouldnt have said that.

I know it goes a lot deeper than that, I used to listen to it. If he heard my band he would probably think we are satanic just because we play metal/punk. If all rap music glorifies rape and drugs, than all metal music is about satanic sacrifice.

Rap "music" is really a very good thing, because the rap "artists" who actually survive the weekly drivebys and murder attempts against them can produce this awesome "music" that makes sure that the getto culture stays alive so that new brotha's can grow up to and make sure that the other side of the getto gets cleaned out once in a while from "tha otha gang".
