I was caught in heavy traffic the other day, and a guy next to me had his windows down, and I could hear a steady stream of filth coming from his car, which was vibrating, by the way. It was filled with obscenities, and death wishes for law enforcement, girlfriends, advocating domestic violence.
I couldn't wait until the light changed to get away from it. I did try to catch his eye so I could roll my eyes at him, but never did. lol.
On the fair side, I told some friends about it, and they said it's not all like that.

I did read it. I'm just asking you why are you singling out Rap / Hip Hop?
Why don't you criticize Death Metal, or Country?
Both of these seem to have more crap in them than Rap in my opinion.

I really can't stand it either, I prefer acoustics, a little screamo at times, welsh and french folk music. Things like that and I am black, I can't understand what is the point of that music and it's usually demeaning lyrics.

Man I appreciate your input, truly, but you're missing what I have written. Even in the OP I listed rappers I like, throughout the thread I have bought up people who I think are talented and make good tunes and have said this, you need to read what I'm saying. For the record I rather like Mr Lif (seen him live), Public Enemy (them too), Rakim, early Nas, EPMD, J5, De La Soul, Pharoe Monch and a few others. I deem the rest mostly crap. Nowhere did I say that ALL rap music is offensively awful, just the majority of it, including the attitude it brings with it.
