I can stand a LOT of music. I can listen to punk, ska, jazz, classical, metal, black metal, power metal, rock, alt,goth and even some techno. I can
tolerate most mainstream crap without killing any innocent bystanders until...
I hear rap or hip-hop.
Now, don't get me wrong- I find there a few songs here and there that I can enjoy. By and large though, it's all the same crap. Generic phat beat,
and low-quality lyrics. Yes, we really want to hear about how great you are. Yeah, we really want to hear about your bling units, expensive cars, hoes
I think it's the self agrandisment that gets to me about rap. I just think "Wow, fifty... you're a walking ad for why people should use 10mm
instead of 9." every tiem I hear him. The furious wrath...ARG!
As for punks versus rappers, they are fairly diametrically opposed forces. a 'real' punk purist is as likely to reject you as a 'real' hip-hopper
for listening to punk. It goes both ways, son.
