In my opinion, rap is only singing about Girls, and Smoking weed, ill admit that that isnt all rap music, but most Black Rappers sing about that.Rap just isnt broad enough listen to.

Rap is some of the most intelligent, touching, and haunting music I have ever listened to. Songs like The Poverty Of Philosophy, and Destruction and Creation are so powerful, you can't help but take notice. Rap is all about liking the right artist. Same with any other style of music. There will always be people who think that Nickelback are the quintesential rock band, and there will always be those who think that Lil Whyte is the quintesential rapper. The thing I can't stand is when people stereotype rap music. Them saying all rap is about smoking weed and f*cking girls, is the equivalent of those idiots who say all emo music is about cutting yourself, and I'll be damned if half of this forum doesn't jump on their back and call them misinformed. Rap music has a raw energy to it that I cannot find in any other kind of music.

I like rap, i must admit, i own albums from the following artists.

Public Enemy
Eminem
Notorious B.I.G.
Dr. Dre
Beastie Boys
Danger Doom

=D
Do you? I find it pretty easy. I think Mos and Talib, Common, Aesp (can't spell) MC Paul Barman, and Black Thought are pretty amazing.

Not to mention Deltron 3030 or Dr Octagon. And don't get me started on the millions of A Tribe Called Quest style rap groups releasing albums between 1991 and 1994.

I agree with that so much. The lyrics to old rap were brilliant, but the crappy music was awful so that made me not want to listen to it. Nowadays things go the opposite way around, with the exception of some rappers out there.

I can tell u what DOESN'T make me like rap/hip hop. but i won't to avoid confrontation. instead, i'll say that Outkast, some eminem, buck 65 and some talib kweli are some of the few rap artists i like.

I gotta agree wit' Absurd and Crazy Luv. None-the-less, good lyrics, and a good beat just make a track. It's gotta mean something, have that realness, some emotion. Whether it be anger, love, hate, pleasure, or what ever, if the voice ain't feelin' it they can't project it. If they can't show that they really, truly mean/feel what their saying then it's crappy music. you take somebody like Tupac, Eazy E, Biggie, they weren't just good vocalists, they didn't just have good beats or both, they came straight forward on how they felt, and what they went through to get where they were. Even Kanye West, Young Jeezy or Busta Rhymes, all excelent lyricists but they come real with it, taht's what counts.
