I'd say that either one of presidential candidates weren't all that great, I'm just glad that the lesser of the two evils won.


Obama wins at life.

I dislike most of it, I find it un talentled bragging about how big someone's girlfriend's ass is or how much money they have. It's kinda the same thing in every song.

Rapping about their gold chain makes them feel better about their small penis.

It's not cool to hate mainstream rappers; it's justifiable. Mainstream rap is mostly horrible self-promotion by 1-hit wonders, interchangeable stories of people wishing to live out their Scarface fantasy, bragging about squandering money (I really don't want to buy an album to then hear about what you're now buying because I bought your overpriced CD), or fucking pop music toughened up. Kayne West especially promotes himself as if he's personally accomplished anything as a songwriter or producer other than riding other people's coattails or being in the right place at the right time, and that he's owed fame and glory because of it.

I'd like to see any of his work held to others like RZA, who spearheaded the most successful hip-hop group in history (who West even said he emulates), or Dr. Dre, who actually created a genre of hip-hop and is still regarded as one of the premiere producers of today. Shit, even people like El-P created record labels (Def Jux) from the ground up without gimmick. All Kayne West has is a couple of singles he wrote for people, horrible chopped-up samples (how the fuck do you even sample Daft Punk? Daft Punk is 90% samples), and an over-inflated ego about what he hasn't accomplished. But I do thank you for referring to him as "rap," which is the bastard commercialized brother of hip-hop.

Agreed. If I had to list my top 5 most hated people in Hip-Hop right now, I couldn't really make the list very ordered, but Lil' Wayne, Flo Rida and Kanye would be holding top spots. After that, maybe Esham, for being overrated as fuck.

There are some really great rappers, lyricists and producers, but most of them don't get played. The media prefers the harmless ones taht rap about their money (Rich Boy, wat?), instead of anyone who actually tries to say something. I bet they're still kicking themselves for letting Public Enemy on air, since it's too late to silence them anymore.

On that note, if you want to see where the shit is at at the moment, get Public Enemy's "Rebirth Of A Nation", the visitor list is like a hall of fame, though lacks some good names.

Metal?

Death metal?

Everything?

Also, not all rap is about "Being Gangsta", it would be preferred to atleast aquaint yourself with the topic before starting to bitch and moan.

Hip-hop is fucking great. Rap sucks.

Rap is the stupid, noisy bullshit that's on the radio, not hip-hop. Rap is the genre where the stupid wannabes rap about their respective bitches and hoes and money and body counts.

There's a difference.

When I was a little kid, my mom tried to get me into hip-hop. At the time, I didn't really like it, but I didn't hate it either. She enrolled me into a "After school hip-hop dance class", somewhere around 6th grade. I was the ONLY guy in the entire class out of about 20 other girls. They considered me for what seemed like a milisecond, then they decided to learn a dance routine for some Britney Spears song. I quit it after about 3 classes.

Yeah, hip hop is all about money, land and women.

I used to hate hip hop, and even now, I'm not a diehard fan, I just enjoy some hip hop that's out there, because it's not all shitty gangsta rap. The people that flat out hate the genre are just ignorant. That's not to say that you have to like the genre to have an opinion. I found Jade's opinion to be perfectly acceptable, after all, it comes down to personal tastes, and as far as personal tastes go, you should generally maintain a certain level of conduct and respect. I couldn't care less for Rammstein, but I don't bash people who like their music.

It's not about the music, it's about being able to understand and being able to respect that other people may have different tastes from you, and their opinion is equally as valid. There's merits every different style of music, and this is coming from a guy who walks out of a CD store with classical, electronica, rock, metal and hip hop all in the one purchase.
