I like rap, i know ALLOT of it is trash and should of never been aired or even made. But the inspirational stuff is really awsome, like Tupac.

I just want to hear what you people have to say. this time i wont try to insult people and make them cry.

Personally, I find it hard to consider most rap even music.  It is just some guy talking in rhythm, but it does not take any voice talent or instrumental talent whatsoever.  I could be better than some of those rappers out there if someone gave me the lyrics to a rap song.

That is true, they dont know how to play instruments, and neither do they make their own rhythms. I agree, but sometimes its pretty good weather or not they have. Whenever i listen to DMX: Lord Give Me A Sign, or Tupac: Changes i get inspired to do something good.

I have never taken the time to listen to those songs, mainly because I usually have only heard some ignorant rap song by Eminem my cousin listens too, but I am sure some of the songs are alright.

Okay this is in the WRONG spot, and I'm sure this has been done before. This will get locked.

But I still want to have my say. I think rap has only a few things that they talk about. Drugs, alcohol, sex, and that kind of stuff. I am a full out rocker, and rock talks about a wide variety of things. On a music view, rap is just a repetitive drum line and the chorus is usually repeated a million times. Rock has solos, riffs, bridges, a variety of verses, etc.

Hm, yes.  Continue this topic in the Music section... in fact I think there's already a thread there about rap as daswiftarrow pointed out.  Thanks!
