I've always thought Hip-Hop/Rap was about the beats, the track, the DJ. The emcee was also supposed to make a point, not just trying to find a catchphrase that motivates fans to exploit reality.

Has anyone else noticed that a real ghetto thug that grew up dealing drugs and "cappin' brothas" like 2Pac becomes a peace and love envoy for change, whereas the shallow fake rappers that don't even know how to hold a gun IE 50 Cent rap about cutting rocks and shoot-outs as if it's some kind of glory sport, because they've never experienced the pain and difficulty that comes along with it?

You dont think 50 Cent has experienced any pain or been through some ****? He had a movie come out a few years ago called "Get Rich Or Die Trying" It goes into what he had to do to get where hes at. Im not trying to defend 50 Cent specifically, Im just saying the stuff he raps about is not all bull**** just to get paid.

The lyrics in alot of the rap songs you hear are influenced by things that take place in their lives. Weather it be girls, money, drugs, getting shot at, ect... But that doesn't go without saying that a lot of the songs with lyrics about money and women are complete crap.

And as Dr. Dre said in the video Denz posted, gangster rap yields more record sales than other types of rap.

I prefer old-school rap myself. I like some of the new, Im more into it for the beat but most of it I don't listen to.

Probably the best rap song on the face of the planet.
