Yeah, I don't like all rap. Call me an ignorant bastard, but to me, Rap is made by ghetto black people, for ghetto black people. I like Kanye West and Eminem, and that's basically it. But hey, everyone has their opinions.

All the losers saying they hate rap cuz they're too dumb to find a good rap artist might just as well say they hate the color brown cuz somebody smacked em with a baseball bat once.

Most rap sucks because most MUSIC sucks. Most music sucks because most MUSICIANS SUCK. Most EVERYBODY SUCKS. That's why being good at anything is so rare so stop hating on rap and go kill yourself

By the way, Senator John Dean is a good rapper, nay, a great rapper although he switched to EDM.

Stop getting hung up on labels. Rapping is what people in hiphop do. If they're not rapping its instrumental or its not hiphop. Its r&b or some other garbage.

So... You take an existing classical piece or phrase from a song (always in a 4/4 time signature), loop it endlessly with amplified bass, then brag or complain about your money/lack of money, sex life/love life, general anger or violence, etc. and become a huge icon while some greedy record label steals all your money.

Okay, so maybe I'm describing rap at its worst. Plenty of more underground rappers may talk about political issues, more complex personal struggles, social classes, psychological states of mind, spirituality, religion, and the like, but it's still not music. It's poetry, and the musical element is all but removed. Rap is something I may look up and listen to hard for a good couple of minutes, but if I want to indulge in something melodic, I opt for a different genre.

For awhile I was starting to hate rap music. Then someone made me realize its not the music or the genre. Its the artist. There are few rap artists today I enjoy very much. But When it comes to ocertain rappers, I can't take them seriously. And some rappers change over the years and I start loose interest.

Most rap is still written about a lifestyle. I think the lower class lifestyle is more interesting vs. the upper class as lower class ghetto fags deal with frequent problems, whether it be the hunt for pussy or shootin' up anotha crew. These things create a drama, and people like drama.

Most of the rap music both mainstream like 2pac and Dr. Dre are still present in places like Youtube, with millions of views.

that also applies to more classic rap like The Godfather, and like other people said there are tons of underground artists that are good.

1 or 2 artists ;ole lil' Wane doesn't ruin a complete genre like Rap.

I havent heard many rappers go on about that kind of stuff. I can only recall one song in the past year that was like that and had rapping in it.

Rap underrates grammar, spelling and pronunciation. It should be despised.

that's the only rap artist(s) I have on my ipod. Everything else is post-rock, IDM and other rock bands. I have to agree that it's certain rap groups/artists that make the genre look dumb, so blame them why rap gets hated on too much.
Also, producers think they're so tough and slick "sampling" old music and changing tempo adding some snares. That is the stuff I really hate.

Are you seriously complaining that dance music is in 4/4? Are you stupid or something?

loop it endlessly with amplified bass, then brag or complain about your money/lack of money, sex life/love life, general anger or violence, etc. and become a huge icon while some greedy record label steals all your money.

i admit to liking some vocal trance if it's dancey/ethereal sounding and well-produced, but it's so rare that i just discount the entire genre

araabmuzik is cool tho
Psytrance doesn't even have any, it's literally DUGGADUH DUGGADUH for hours, mostly the hours 11pm to 11am

no surprises there; this goes for all genres of electronic "music". rap music on the other hand is a real genre, with real people, real sounds and real lyrics. rap is probably one of my favourite contemporary genres of all time. some great rap artists and bands to check out: eminem, meshuggah, dolly parton, skrillex

Pretty much any genre of music gets hated too much. People have varying tastes and a habit to voice their opinion on music they don't like.

The only difference is rap is one of the most prominent genres you hear on the radio right now and therefore comes under the most fire. The mind state of the average person who hates rap is what you hear on the radio represents all of rap/hip-hop/whatever you wanna call it.

Is it? I honestly don't really listen to the radio much anymore (which probably means I shouldn't of said what you quoted lol, oh well). What is it that gets played nowadays?
