Rap, hip hop, whatever name you would like to call it does nothing for me. Music should move you or speak to you in some way and this genre does not. That's not to say that it is bad per say, as that is merely a personal opinion, but it's nothing that I bother with.

rap is alright, I think old school rap is better. I respect some rappers, like Tu Pac, and TCQ, but really more for the lyrics and not for the stupid sampling they do. Some of the "topics" like loving strippers and killing and raping, thats a little too much. I rather listen to guy bitch and moan about a lost love (i.e. EMO)

One time this I was talking to a customer of mine, and he said flat out "I don't like rap" I could see where he was coming from, but I convinced him to listen to one of my Digable Planets cds. He was already a fan of jazz music, so the Planets were easy for him to get into. That SumBitch still hasn't given me back my CD:shk:

I prefer music that can induce emotions just through the melody. Rap doesn't seem to do that as well, though it can make good driving music, and it certainly makes me laugh.

Like I said, theres different kinds of rap. Some rap DOES reach out to people.

Listening to RIDIN FOR PAC by Guce and Killa Tay. That song's clean.

DMX is very cool. I listen to his songs, too, especially Party UP and X Gonna Give It To You. I also liked the B**** Please 3 with DMX and Tupac. DMX is cool, but NOT better then 2pac. Go 2pac. Go 2pac. Go 2pac.
GO rap. Go rap

Gold in my watch, diamonds in my chain
When someone messes with me, I bring red rain
Crusin in da black hummer, on 26s
When I walk by, n# get up
Cuz when I get mad, my glock goes POP!
Drop
Stomp
Killin yo breed off
Anihilating entire blocks
They call me Russian soldier
And I'm poppin slugs till my last breath


That's just a rap I made off the top of my head. I love the lifesyle, saggy pants, white reeboks, white Ts, tipped caps, bandanas, durags, black cars, shiny rims and spinners, loud music, subwoofers, lots of BASS, lots of homies, and keepin it real. Fo show!
You freestyle???? I knew i wuz on to something when you said choppas and cribs.

You my name is something you shouldn't mess with
cuz i bought a blouse and that's what i dress wit.
Poppin 9's is my specialty i blast the cops when they least expectin me i hate em cuz they laways checkin me. U could find me drug traffickin even though im not african(no offense to africans ) and my car is always crashin in.
Got my bling blings and Lambo on dubz,goin to clubs with multiple snubs. Getting hoes all the time so those wanksta's cant comprehend my rhyme.

We should make a freestyle thread LOL!!!!!!!!
By da way do u live in Russia????

I grew up listening to the same thing, and more. I think a well rounded musical taste is necessary. I'm also sure you haven't heard much rap either. This actually goes for most of those who make blanket statements like this.

Rap in general, the rap by thugs, pimps, rapists, wanna-bes... is what brings down society, for those who listen to it. I know music is a form of expression.. but that expression is so negative as to help reproduce that same negativity among people to have it continue.

Rap about solutions to problems, stop doing drugs, do something productive in society, letting your voice be heard, voting, making a difference in the world, helping people out...promoting productive intelligence..

Again, a blanket statement made by someone who's only knowledge of rap is from Mtv.

I'm currently in the States cuz my parents dragged me there(I didn't want to)

But in 1 year I'm going back to Russia for good. Military, man. I will visit though. I'll miss everyone


But I'm still in the hood. Here's a rap:


What it do
G soldier's in da hood
flippin wood
countin stacks
poppin macs
my infra red beam is on your head
watch out. Pop! you drop dead
Fillin your main # man with lead
Coloring a # head with red
I crack ya
Don't # with me
Blood spraying
Liver on the floor
Your heart in my hand still beating
BLATTT!!!
Spraying my Tec-9
Then come up close with my machete
A cop once followed me
Next day he found with his brains leaking out
I'm a dangerous thug
I ain't got no love
I'm in serious bussiness
My mob needs me
Its the mother# Russian mafia, #
And we control everything
You dissing, watch out
Black Hummers will pull in front of yo house
A bunch of tough ass Russians
In ski masks, and teflon vests
Camo, and extra ammo
Grenades and side arms
And some new AKS-74MS with grenade launchers and infrared beams
My soldiers move quick
Flash bang grenade through you window
Pop
You in shock for a moment
That moment we move in
Bustin heat at everyone in da house
Bodies is dropping
Our guns is poppin
Steyr Aug at hand
.50 caliber machine gun in the back
I'm a full time hustla
And I'm still representing Russia



Oh yeah, how was that?

I'm not a huge fan, i like my music hard fast and loud, though beastie boy's Ill Communication is pretty cool. For those of you that havent heard them check out the Hill Top Hoods from Australia, you may be pleasantly surprised. Their about the only ones i can listen to in large doses.

Rap is crap. It promotes violence against women and it
promotes thuggery. It melts the minds of the youth who
listen to it. Their time is better spent in the library attempting
to raise their SAT scores so they can get into college and
earn a living.

(God I sound old! )

I agree with urmomma158 that it's a bit asanine to say that all rap is crap, just like saying that rock is old, dead, and garbage is stupid.

If bands like Radiohead and Tool have taught us anything, it's that the Rock genre is alive and well. Just like how Mos Def and Saul Williams show us that Rap is more than just glorifying the gangster lifestyle. Both genres of music are culturally pertinent and important. What the two of you are arguing, is your own personal taste. Which will get you nowhere. :bnghd:
