    I love rap. I have since I was 10 or 11 years old. Heck, the first album I ever owned was 'doggystyle' by snoop dogg.

    Anyone can "rap" but only Snoop Dogg and Cypress Hill should be allowed to. The Beastie Boys (who are okay, but still..meh!) put out the first rap cd to hit number 1 on the charts and that is THE reason we have an over population of

    I loath rap in general. There is one guy who put out a song where the chorus is just rambling off perscription drugs that you can take to get Rap, In my very honest opinion, is the cause of urban decay. Hell, it's urban decay on a compact disc.

    Good points. Don't you think that there are rap "artists" that are constructive in their efforts?
  9. Did you mean "rap AS MUCH as other genres?

    If so, no. But I do listen to rap.

    I like rap, but not any of the gansta stuff...more like Digable Planets, Tribe Called Quest, etc. They incorporate a smooth jazzy feel to their stuff....nice head bobbin' grooves.

    Because actually quoting takes too much time...

    Don't you think that there are rap "artists" that are constructive in their efforts?
    Not really. Of all the rap I heard so little was original and pleasing. CH has this one album where they have these heavy git licks and that turned me on to them but they still arn't as constructive as say Avril (whom I think should get quartered for throwing the horns). All my friends listen to rap and the only good thing that came out (besides Snoop and CH) of it was the bass grooves.

    I think that's a term that TB can do without.

    We all think lots of things. It is a word reffering to a white person who acts like a gangsta. If you don't like it you have 2 eyes you may shut as you scroll past my message. I don't want to sound like a biatch but, comon, the english language is not something to cry about.

    Is it dark in that cave?
    Just because the vast majority of people that listen to rap and act out the hideous **** they rap about are responsible for the vast majority of the hideous **** that happens in America means I live in a cave? Who in the devil do you think you are?
  16. i do listen to rap, not AS MUCH as say i listen to ska but yeah i do enjoy rap. the only problem is that i really don;t like listening to all these rappers talk about drugs, sex or violence and the was that women are portrayed in some rap videos. some rappers i do like are NAS, Sage Francis, and the stuff that has more social topics. example: sage francid makeshift patriot talks about how Americans after 9/11 all of a sudden became so patriotic and buying as many flags as they can to show how american they are.

    Some... not all... don't care much for a lot of rap coming out in past few years... Not all of todays rap is bad... some is acctually pretty good stuff but mostly no... But then again its any type of music and any time... I just hate the bling bling crap... there is no lyrics there... "bling bling, everytime i come around bling bling" talking about pop...

    its just illusion because we take 100 good bands that happen over 50 years... and then we look of 2 good bands that came out this year... and we see that 2 is much smaller then 100... when in fact 100 / 50 and 2 / 1 is a same number...

    all types are good if music is good

    I don't enjoy the current "gangsta" rap one bit. But hey, many people do. I figure I'm just too old.

    I do like to get out my Kurtis Blow, MC Lyte, UTFO, LL Cool J, Young MC, Whodini, Kool Moe Dee, Big Daddy Kane, and Run DMC records and listen to them though. One of the first albums I bought was "Raising Hell" by DMC. I thought I was such a rebel.
