No viruses I promise it's bungalow's forum
And besides I'm not good with computers, why would I want to screw over other people?
Can I have a youtube video for a sig? There's a thing that says "Wrap [YOUTUBE] tags around selected text"

But I will reply to this any way.
New Rap is to rap music, what new country (ala Keith Urban, Rascal Flats) is to country music.
It isnt rap in its purest form.
Though this can be refuted for there are some rappers today who have just as much of an impact on music.
You say that rap songs have no meaningful lyrics.
That is bullsh*t.
Listen to "One Mic" by Nas, listen to " I Can" by Nas, both of those songs have meanings and excellent ones at that.
And they are both "semi-new"
Eminem is also one of the rappers that is keeping rap alive.
DMX is an excellent rapper and Common still drops a single every now and then.
You pose the most sterotypical argument against rap
"All they sing about is bitchs and hoes and bling and doing drugs"
Every person who has something bad to say against rap, always uses those words.
And the second they do that, I lose all respect foor their opinion.
If you want to define rap music by the latest Ja Rule single, then go a head.
That is like saying country music sucks because Tim McGraw made a sh*tty song.
New country, as said before, is pop with a southern accent.
New rap (a lot of it anyways) is Pop-Rap. Even pop rap cannot be generalized to the point that you do it to, but, nonetheless, it does give rap a bad rap no pun intended.
Rap music has just as much of an impact on music as a whole as classic rock, punk, and any other genre you can think of.
To discredit it entirely is ridiculous.
To discredit it because you dont like 50 Cent, is f*cking stupid

Also, I don't understand how people can only like certain genres. I judge music on how it makes me feel no matter what genre. Although my music collection is dominated by pop (risky statement to make in this forum ) it is a varied collection of what works for me at the time.
To those who are attacking certain genres, open your minds and stop generalising. Take music for what it is and how it makes you feel, instead of worrying about what genre it should/shouldn't fit into and who influenced the band.

music isnt getting worse, its just that the popular music seems to be getting far worse. back in the day when the chart toppers were good artists and bands like bob dylan,the rolling stones etc. now days the popular chart topper is a bunch of black guys and tanned half naked women singing **** that sounds exactly the same as the other bunch of black guys with tanned half naked women. but the good music is still out there, you just cant look to the charts for it anymore. i mean how could you say that any of the chart music is good? back in the 60's and 70's you could. i mean comparing led zepplin topping charts to a fu cking digital frog with it's **** out. its sad but we must look elsewhere.
