don't bother with these "whatever vs rap/hip hop fight" fights. usually it's a bunch of ignorant people trying to defend their favorite music by criticizing the more popular or dominant form. the truly ignorant ones stereotype the enitre genre into all rap being about "b!tches and money". arguing with the ignorant is like arguing with forrest gump, eventually you just feel silly for even trying because they'll never get rap topics cover more than that.

the funny ones are those that argue in technical ways. they says that rap lacks melody or make up other rules to demonstrate how rap is inferior in some way. these people are funny because they present themselves as some sort of musical authority without any credentials to back them up. at the same time, by which standard do they judge what is music to begin with? real authorities critique from within the genre, not by comparing it to others.

the "try doing this or that and tell me how easy it is..." arguement is silly because one could always turn it around and ask the questioner the same thing: "why don't you try and do a good freestyle rap?" the real answer is that all types music needs to be learned and practiced. playing the guitar, drums, rapping, singing, sampling, etc...all require learning and practice.

finally, look at the environment you're arguing in. the internet is made up of people who can afford expensive monthly broadband connections, expensive computers, monitors, etc. they live in a different world. rap means nothing to them because they never experienced the life depicted in rap music.

just keep in mind that rap/hip hop is one of the most popular genres in the world and let the haters be.



FYI, I do listen to rap too. Only the underground ones, mainstream ones are crap. Just because you have not seen me defend it, doesn't mean I don't like it.
