I mean really? This must be blame the world's problems on someone else day. Lets not blame the people who really deserve it like corrupt
governments, politicians, military and all around douches.
No, lets single out an entire genre of music. It's not as if there is good and bad to it, just like every other genre. No. Rap is the absolute worst
thing going on right now. Lil Wayne ( while he is a TERRIBLE artist) is NOT the cause of people being stupid. PEOPLE are the cause of people being
With so many GOOD rappers with meaningful lyrics out there you choose to focus on mainstream crap, and on top of that not the mainstream crap of
today, but the mainstream crap of the early 90s- mid 2000s. In case you haven't noticed, rap hasn't been " gangsta" for quite some time. I do
notice you use the word ghetto regularly in your post. Interesting. I wonder if it has less to do with where and more with who. Lets go through some
examples of good rap.
This is Lupe fiasco. He actually has some songs with deep meanings if you can get over your apparently squeamish fear of rap music.
I really recommend this song right here.
Now lets show some examples of " gangsta" rap Circa 1990s
This is pretty old.
This is also pretty old.
Now, lets look at something current.
Wow, isn't that just the most EviL thing you have ever heard? This just makes me want to grab a huge 40, bust some caps in some people's butts, and
totally lose respect for myself as a woman. THIS just happens to be the most current hiphop out right now. Oh yes, this is so terrible and ghetto.
So please, spare me with your huge generalization of an entire genre of music. ALSO another thing that annoyed me is that USHER and RKELLY are NOT
RAPPERS. They are singers. R&B to be exact. Please, lets get that straight. Thank you. To avoid further confusion I will show you examples.
This is Jay-Z he is a rapper. He has shocking lyrics about women sometimes in his songs.
This is Usher. He is an R&B artist. Sometimes he has shocking lyrics about women, but he also sings AMAZING love songs.
Another thing that really grinds my gears. Hip pop is NOT RAP!
This is Nicki Minaj. She calls herself a rapper. She isn't.
This is Foxy Brown. She was an actual rapper.
This is Lil Wayne. He is terrible.
This is Eminem. He is an amazing lyricist.
Alright I will stop my rant with one last thing to point out. I see you graciously decided not to comment on Death Metal. You also declined to comment
on emo screamo music. Both promote drug use, suicide, homocide, genocide and,,, necrophilia
Your problem OP is not with rap in itself You don't like the " ghetto" Well I have news for you, the ghetto probably doesn't like you either.
People write music based on their own life experiences. You don't like? Then by all means change the radio station. Delete it out of your ipod..
Don't blame an entire genre of music on the problems of the youth. There is much more that is wrong with this generation than hearing about bling
