Any of the new rappers who earn obscene amounts of money for simply having to speak over a few beats - IMO it doesn't constitute music. And their obsession with bling and girls infuriates me - not one seems o have made a video without either a land rover with massive rims, or several bikini clad girls gyrating (or both).
So 50cent, Snoop Dogg etc...
No trees were harmed by this message. However, several million electrons were terribly inconvenienced

I'm not going to list and rappers, since they aren't musicians. Calling them that is an insult to all true musicians out there. Besides them, I guess I would have to go with Ashlee Simpson and Aaron Carter, too teeny-bop no-talent dopes with no right to go anywhere near a stage. The fact that they have no talent and got to where they are because of family irritates me even more.

Quoting Usairwys757 (Reply 4): Snoop Dogg was around during the days of real rap, where they actually made music and the beats they sing to.
So to group Snoop Dogg with the "new" rappers is really unfair.
Real Rap??? Snoop was not around for the Sugar Hill Gang, Fat Boys, Run DMC, Kool Moe Dee, Boogie Down Productions, Blondie's Rapture etc etc...
As for me, I would give the death sentence to Bob Dylan. Me and some friends drove up to New York to see Springsteens final show in 03 at Shea Stadium and that sorry ass non singing bastard had the nerve to come on stage and blab off songs in lyrics only he could understand.

It would be the producer that thinks we want to listen to the same boring crap for the last 5 years. It all sounds the same! Jessica Britney Avril Ryan or whoever. There are so many and they do sound the same! I remember the days when something refreshing would come along, it would burn out and something else refreshing would come along.
