Default New rap sucks alligators penis

uh, yeah, new rap music, as in all the krunk, and club hopping hits they play on the radio now days is one of the worst trends in music history. I don't understand how people can like it just because it's fun to dance to. How does being able to 'get jiggy wit' it', when you're completely inebbriated to it qualify it as good music? I guess it's okay for people to enjoy it, but remember when you actually buy this crap, or listen to it frequently, you're encouraging more artists to make music that is completely degrading of women, and also sends the message to everyone that the single most important thing a person can do in life is make money and have money. I almost think that George W. Bush put a mandate out right after 9/11 for all kinds of studios and record executives to start churning out this drivel. "heh, we need something that's hip, and pro-capitalist, then we'll show the world how great we are, by how much money we can make and spend." The R wing politicians of the world will claim to dislike this brand for its immorality, but secretly they couldn't be happier about its insanely capitalist agenda.

How does music that sells terrible not promote capitalism? If it is selling on a market then it is pro-capitalism. Anyways bad rap has been around for a while. Good rap isn't spreading anymore because of things like MTV and VH1.

Yes, I know. I'm talking about the lyrical content. Basically, all they rap about is money or material possessions they purchased such as ice, or gold plated rims or gold chains or gold teeth, gold and diamonds. You being from Florida, I'm sure you've been exposed to it in the worst way.

However, if people are going to like something horrible, I would much prefer them buy crunk over that saddle-bagging crap from the SW

yeah dude all new rap is ****, but of coarse rappers are going to sell what people want to dance to at the club seeing most inter city kids dont have the money to buy new records and they just want to dance to it. Also, none of the new cds are fully good, so most new rappers make 1 single that sells everywhere and people buy on itunes


music industry is real lame

Once again. Ignore the mainstream and search for better music. It is out there. Don't let the multinationals dictate to you what to hear.

I would have to agree with all of this.. But I think what you mean is the current mainstream is garbage. There are some decent new rappers, and definitely many oldies still making new material.

But i think the spirit of the whole genre is being lost.

We are living in an era where Lil' Wayne is "the best rapper ever!!"

Its kind of depressing. But i assume it will pass soon enough. I think it all started with that damn Thong Song lol.

There's still some good artists out there. Not all new rap is like Lil Wayne and Birdman "makin it rain". Dont lose faith in the poetry of the streets. I'll make some recommendations of some rap albums to check out:

El-P - "I'll Sleep When You're Dead"
Lupe Fiasco - "The Cool"
Aesop Rock - "None Shall Pass"
Kanye West- "Graduation"
Jay-Z - "American Gangster"

True that. Every rapper now has to be a CEO and have a "hundred million dolla". The music is what suffers.
