yes, I will continue to respond.


I encourage you but how about sticking to the OP and giving those that dislike rap a reason to love it eh?

NOT A LOT TO ASK FOR A THREAD IS IT?

All filla no killa?

Can you explain how this music could make people happy or sad?

Or simply be?

Anyone can give a link or a dozen youtube vids but why? Why should anyone listen to this or them?

Link one of your vids to a well explained reason to listen and my ears are yours.

Otherwise it's just more links.

Plan B - Tough love.
Sorry no link. But this song is based on a true story about a Muslim girl that rebels against her fundamentalist relgious parents.

The words are excellent, and must be heard by everyone. Rap fan or hater, you cannot denydeny these lyrics.

I grew up I guess.

I started looking for more complex music.

I got tired of the constant cursing, the violent themes, the drug and sexual innuendos, etc.

I know not all rap is not like that.

The only rap that I can stomach anymore is Jurassic 5.

Even they use the "N" word sometimes and I don't like it.

Non Phixion:

Ill Bill and Goretex had great lyrics that include a lot of conspiracy ideas and pure craziness combined with interesting social commentary. Necro is a great producer. Shame the group split up but they made some great music while they were together.

Well, like you stated in the OP; every genre has its golden nuggets. I used to listen to rap all the time a few years ago and I totally agree that there are some brilliant lyricists worthy of praise. Nowadays, it might just be me not keeping myself updates on what is hot or not, but there's so much bullsh#t that I can't bear to expose myself to it anymore.

I guess the only current, popular rap artists that I listen to today is Kendrick Lamar and Joey Bada$$. And perhaps a little embarressing, some of Drake's more personal material I like. The rest of his # though... There's undoubtedly other great rappers out right now but those two are the only one's that caught my attention.

But if we're talking none current stuff... There's so many... The Roots (absolute all time favorites), Talib Kweli, Mos Def, Pharoahe Monch, Method Man, Redman, Wu-Tang Clan (of course), Jay-Z, Busta Rhymes (90s and early 2000s), Eminem, Outkast... The list'll be too long I realize, so I'll stop here...

Oh! And Biggie, some of Tupac's stuff, Big Pun, Big L, some Das EFX... OK I'll stop now.

Saw this the other day and it had me in stitches, thought it would fit nicely here.
It says it all about what most mainstream rap has become.
