Default So, why do you hate Rap?

I've noticed a widespread dislike amongst people for Rap music, and I was just curious as to why.

Just don't like it. Just like I just don't like country. Simple as that.

I used to not mind Rap and R&B, but after some time when the only thing you hear in the radio and see in MTV are Rappers and R&B artist, it turns me off.

Too much of one thing is a bad thing. Same goes for Emo rock.

I used to really dislike rap, but since coming to college, some rap artists have sorta grown on me. Lil Wayne and Bone Thugs in particular.

Same here - they are freaking all over the place and I just can't move away from it in my college unless I go into the deepest depths of the building with my CD player.

Ok, interesting. Now, my rebuttal(hehee)
1) It's all over the place. This is true. Rap has grown in popularity, and alot of what is produced is Pop. It's not stuff that should really be seen as Rap(aka Rythym and Poetry), because it's either club bangers or the gangsta/drug dealer crap.

In it's most original form, what some would call it's element, rap has been about expressing oneself. Often the "music of the ghetto" is about struggling in a life that just doesn't seem willing to accomodate people who arn't cookie cutter. It's about something deeper than cars, women and violence. Violence is still often mentioned, but it's got to be done with craft, with style. Otherwise it's just crap.

So what to do? Try listening to some GOOD rap. Quick intros:
Kanye West Graveshift
Lupe Fiasco Put on your Game
NAS One Mic
Damien Marley ft Nas Road to Zion
Atmosphere God Loves Ugly
Aesop Rock Basic Cable
Aesop Rock Float
Atmosphere Don't Ever Question That
Outkast Bombs over Baghdad
Styles P My Life
Jay-Z This Can't Be Life

Those arn't radio-play songs(anymore for some), and they're quite awesome.

As regards the "not real music", not all music is necessarily done with instruments. I'd hesistate to list acapella as somethign that's not music because instruments arn't used. Rap at it's core is spoken word, and it's intention is to surprise and intrigue with it's lyrics. A good series of bars should make you go: "huh? wha? did he just say that?".

-I think youll find many hiphop artists have more passion invested in their work than many others

-Similarly, its hard to make out the lyrics in black metal songs, its just a matter of adapting.

-I think youll find it will be remembered in 25 years time. Hell, Run DMC? sugar hill gang? grandmaster flash? Theyre already getting pretty dusty and are still regarded as great artists.




I personally like a lot of rap, but then again, I like whatevers good, regardless of the genre. Ill just as happily listen to doom metal as I will dub. Its important to make informed decisions, so if you havent listened to a lot of it, you really cant make a judgement. One could say all australian hiphop is terrible, and I certainly wouldve agreed with them, until I heard Hilltop Hoods or Bliss n Eso who are excellent examples of the genre.

But then again, ive listened to emo/screamo/emocore/screamcore/shitcore bands, and every single one sounds horrible. So I think in the end it is down to personal preference, so you might just end up being someone with a very limited taste in music! But youll never know untill you listen to everything!
