Rap or Crap?

like with all music genres, it gets saturated. there is always an artist every five to ten years that has something new creative and ingenious to add, but those artists are few and far inbetween. country is as bad as rap. just a bunch of record labels trying to make money not music. punk has gone downhill and so has rock. it is all just a bunch of rip offs of previous geniuses. the problem is people rip off wannabes and the music turns out horrible.


Punk hasn't gone down hill....It's just been flat out dead for over 20 years.

^^ A matter of opinion, but I agree...

Well, it's all about taste. To say rap is, in general, "crap" would be a very one-sided generalization. There's some rap that's alright, and some that's less than good.

Music has, and always had, a variety of flavours for a variety of people...

It always amuses me how people always refer to Biggie or Tupac as "great" artists simply because they died before their time...It's not just them either people do the same damn thing with Jim Morrison and Curt Cobain...all these people were mediocre during their time. But since their death they have always gained this ridiculous pedestal of talent none of them really deserved


Hip-hop isn't dead....But it is on its last legs...and fading quickly

Hip Hop/Rap gets shitted on so much because of that retarded mainstream songs they play on the T.V. and radio. I mean the main thing people focus on now is the beats, they don't even pay attention to how shitastic the lyrics are.

Don't just judge a whole genre after hearing shit like 50 Cent, listen to people who actually have talent. Artists like Nas, AZ, Talib Kweli, Immortal Technique, MF Doom, Big L, KRS-One, Rakim, and Jay-Z.
