Ok, comparing country to rap? Rap promotes drugs, murder, gangs, treating women like $hit, and cussing just to cuss. Country promotes hicks,
rednecks, incest, and tractor fetishes.(My girl is in love with my tractor)
Rap isn't a style, an art form. In one song by Ludacris he says the F word over 30 times. How is that an art form? In one song Eminem kills his
wife, mother, daughter, a few pedestirans, then himself. He talks about killing people just because they are gay. He teaches intolerance. How is
that art? How is going "D@mn little b*tch I'm gonna F*cking kill you! Die b*tch die!" making art? I don't like rap, don't like country, but
at least with country I don't learn three new ways to degrade women and two new ways to kill gays. Also don't learn how to string different cuss
words together to make them sound, well, like alot of cuss words stringed together.
How is teaching little kids to call their teacher a b*tch art?(from Fox news, some inner city middle school had problems with respect for female
teachers for the students((male ones)) kept calling them b*tches, c*nts, little whores, sluts, so forth)
William, rap may have started out in the 70's as actual music, but today the more cuss words they can get into a song the better. The more ways to
degrade women the better. Rap is usually nothing more than shock for cash.
You still have some good rap, Will Smith, Sugar Hill(I looked them up, got some songs, actually sound good). But those are the rare few, the 5% that
people use to say rap isn't bad, it an art form. You can't convince people that Eminem or Ludacris or Snoop Dog is a form of art, but Will Smith?
Sure, so lets use him to protect the rest.
I usually respect and agree with you, but with rap(most) I am sorry, today rap is crap. Before, it may have been good, most of it may have been true
music, but today it is cussing to a beat or killing to a beat or degrading others to a beat.(most is)
