  • Why can't you appreciate Rap?

    I noticed a fair portion of you guys on the music survey threads have a disdain for Rap music. Why do you dislike it so much? Is it that you can't relate to it? I'll bet that you can
    I am very curious to see what responses come from this. I expect to see some really good ones too, as many of you are of above average intelligence, IMO.
    I've walked these streets, a loaded six-string on my back, I play for keeps 'cause I might not make it back, I've been everywhere still I'm standin' tall, I've seen a million faces and I've rocked them all!!:salute!:

    I just hate the way it sounds not to mention a good portion of this type of music is sampeling someone elses song........Rock is where it's at for me.

      I love rap.

      Always have.

      I was the first kid in my school to have a Public Enemy T-shirt.

        I like some rap music... I like the beats a lot, but I do not like the lyrical content... I cannot relate with shooting people and stuff (I know not all rap talks about that).

        I guess the main reason is because they brag so much and I cannot stand when people do that. They rap about all their cars and big houses and [email protected] like that... There is really no need for that in music. IMO

        Many are all about money and image and that is not what music is about in my opinion.

        The things I look for in music is 1)Talent which rap has lyrically but its not hard to make beat... I use to have a drum machine... 2) Energy.. It doesn't seem to that rap has as much energy as Metal music or even bands like Phish..

        That is just my opinion, take it for what it's worth.

          I don't like rap, but I respect their artists, because I can't come up with rhymes that quick.

            The sampling I could do without. I am most definately a rock/metal fan 1st and foremost. Can't you appreciate it's power though? I mean, it honestly does nothing for you when you hear it out? Have you ever really truly heard it out?

              You should listen to "Breathe" by Fabulous or "Hate it or Love it" by Gam/50 cent or "Let me clear my throat" by an artist(s) that I do not recall. Plenty of energy there...

                Why not? C'mon Vulcan, no explanation? That's not logical...

                  Right bbj it does nothing for me..........I would compare listening to rap music to getting 2 root canals......And I have had 2 root canals.

                    and thats the way to be. even if you dont like the music, you gota respect the artist for getting where he or she is. but i myself like rap. i also like rock. those are the only genres of music i listen to.

                      I know there is a lot of swearing and stuff like that in it but you have to respect those that tell it how it is.For example those who rap about police corruption they speak the truth.If a cop in LA sees a black person driving a nice car or even a normal car they'll pull him over in no time at all.Rap is their way of making their voice heard nobody is going to listen otherwise so why not.

                          i love rap, rock is a distant 2nd for me though 'hybrid theory' by linkin park was one of the best cd's ive ever got, also 'whats the story, morning glory' by oasis

                          anyway, IMO ppl like what they like, we are all different. i just hate it when ppl have to start hating on someone or a type of music just because THEY don't like it, thats weak.

                          btw - rap is king around the world anyway so i would'nt worry john. eminem is probably the most famous person in music for the last 10 years and now 50 cent and g-unit are DOMINATING charts (50 has #1's in america and around the world nearly every week) - he even had 3 singles in the top 5 a few weeks back

                          rap concerts sell out in 2 seconds anywhere in the world and get record figures.

                          also, the death of tupac and his legacy and the way he represented himself is one of the most famous events of the last century in music and ppl know what happened with him and who he was all around the world.

                          a quick q for ppl who diss rap all the time - which artist/band get the success of 50/em/g-unit around america and the world today? and get as many #1's?

                            Rap just doesn't hook with me. I'm a Techno kind of guy.

                              Sorry, but rap is not my thing.


                              I do like 80's music, and their ballards are really powerful!
