Ok, still if really had some musical talent would you write your own beats and melodies?
so, say i have musical talent. But i don't have a well paying job, and i cant afford good musical equipment, but i am capable of making good lyrics?

music is rythm, rap still has that. you seem to be implying rap artists aren't as intelligent as rock artists? is what i seem to be getting from this.

and not all rappers are african american...

Quite a few do actually, and rap is as music form. Music is sound, not instruments. I don't see why you needed to attack rappers for not playing instruments (which is a completely untrue generalization), it would just as much sense to bash Bruce Dickinson, Joey Ramone, and Robert Plant. I mean they just sing, they're not musicians technically. I guess they shouldn't receive any respect in the music field either right?

Bit of a blanket statement there.

First of all don't just narrow it to rock. Second of all, they don't write their own rhythm, correct? To me having musical talent is being able to play instruments and write music.

Some rappers write their lyrics, never sample a note, write their own beats and produce their own songs. So this thread in my mind is dumb. I think stealing riffs is just as bad/wrong/regressive as sampling. Which is all throughout rock music.

how the **** are you able to generalize every rapper into one group?

the roots have already been mentioned, and they're thousands of rappers who do their own production and rapping.

Absolutely, but there are people who will view it as a racist comment and that is absolutely NOT what I intend.

You're right, but certainly a large majority of maistream rap falls under my generalization.

I can agree with that. Of course the keyword in your post is "some".
