I'm not a Rap fan, I like all sorts of rock music. I do however am forced to listen to it at work, because thats what majority of the people like. So yeah I'll be working listening to rap singing to it. Mine as well make the best of the situation ya know?
PS- this shouldn't become a flame war as long as people say yes or no and why, and if no one goes crazy for someone not liking it or w/e
You should have included a "Sometimes" or "Depends" option :/
I listen to some stuff, if they do actually say something inteligent or that makes sense for me in anyway, then yes I do.
But I don't like the "Hit the pussy" kind of crap. Not cuz that sentence bothers me, but that the guy is actually earning money for singin the first thing that came to his head waking up after a hang over.
That kind of **** just makes rapers that actually work their lyrics look like idiots.
Nope, not really my thing, I listen to it and just hear the same thing over and over, but what else could one expect from someone who doesn't care for that type of music... Same goes for so called country.
I would probably like rap more if 1. they didn't play the same 8 songs over and over 2. it wasn't all about sex money and drugs 3. each rap song i have ever heard has a girl in it. and if the girl is the singer then a guy.
this is comming from someone who doesn't like rap. But like i said im forced to listen to it some times.
now im sure there is rap music out there that isnt about those 3 things i stated above. i just have yet to hear that kind of rap. It certainly isn't on the radio.
another thing i don't really like is how most of the time i can't understand them. For some reason my sister knows exaclty what they say but it leaves me confused.
i hate the rap of today most of it is stupid talkin bout girls and hoes and sex and drugs, retarded u know... the rap by the earlier, pioneers i like.. the old school rap.. those songs had deeper meaning to them, not just talkin bout some jibberish
i only listen to that which is really considered music, and that is; anything with a guitar and drums.
tool, nin, pantera, slipknot, slayer, dying fetus, nile, celldweller to name a few.
- linkin park's style of music like techno with guitar = gg imho gets da nice sweet party sexy white girls like crazy
but rap with dumb lyrics and boom boom sppsh crap over and over is boring and mostly consisting of black people and white trash like marshall slim shady whom have messed up lives with drugs, but hey same can be said for rock stars, but like ozzy they get help and clean them selves up. rappers dont because they think its "cool" to shoot people and say nigg@ nigg@ over and over like a chain saw.
well thats my opinion and im sticking to it. ^_^
guitar/techno > rap
and i seriously hope rap dies because its only the slang word of rape, since thats what mostly the black guys do to the whores on their music videos.
now some jamacan raggae -we be jammin mon- type of music is way better black music then rap. has a higher class standing as well, and the poor people need to become aware of this if they truely want moo laa money "bling bling". because rap will not get u there solely alone, for example ludacris's bling bling comes from his other companies not just from rap, although he is pretty hilarious like busta rymes (them two are the only cool rappers to me).
There is some rap I like, but I usually cannot stand it. there are few exceptions and one of them is ICP, just becuase there is depth to ICP that most people don't know about. They also have a lot of entertaining music that's fun to listen to.
