Don't say that bias against Hip-Hop is not racist. It could very well be racist. I noticed at least one stereotypical comment in here already.
Closeted racist is the worst type of racist.
Like one person said: just because you don't like Evis doesn't mean all Rock music sucks.
If you judge Hip-Hop music based on people like Lil' Wayne and alike, then you have no credibility whatsoever. Period.
It's like saying, "Oh Punk music? I don't like it, I heard Avril Lavigne once and she sounded too pop for me".
See? table can turn both ways.
If you don't like the 'lyrics over the beat' it's because you have a narrow perception. You like only the music you grew up with. That's
understandable but kind of sad to be honest.
Try Abstract Hip-Hop, Progressive Hip-Hop, Glitch-Hop or Turntablism subgenres of Hip-Hop. Maybe they will be more to your liking. Otherwise, keep
listening to Coldplay and ACDC.
Besides, do you realize how simplistic most rock songs are? Lines are soo simple and they repeat a lot. Try analyzing the lyrics of Rakim, KRS-One,
Nas, or Chuck D and you'll blow your mind (probably not because you have the immunity, no offense intended).
Tell me that Hip-Hop sucks after listening to these:
Public Enemy, Beastie Boys, Grandmaster Flash & The Furious Five, Run DMC, Tupac, Tribe Called Quest, De La Soul, Dj Shadow, Kid Koala, DJ Qbert,
Wu-Tang Clan, Cypress Hill, Mos Def, Common, K-Os, Pete Rock and CL Smooth ...etc
Open your mind for Christ's sake, what are you 13?
