I don't listen to rap music nowadays because it's too boring. The better rappers actually made sense and took on controversial topics, and though there was a lot more swearing, the lyrics were not just about fancy cars, whores, bling etc.


YES Tupac and NWA are the real rappers, the rappers these days are fucking sell outs


rap was actually the first genre i liked. Now I'm more into ambiance, classical, trance, techno though I do listen to older rap songs.

well i live in an environment where 98 percent of the people around my area listen to rap...Sure I used to listen to it( alot of oldies) but i had to stop because the songs stoped having meanings... But im glad that this happened because it alowed me to explore diffrent types of music (like techno,rock,batchata, J-pop etc). In Short I HATE present day RAP

Rap is just garbage. All rap contains is lyrics that promote violence and drug use. they pretty much all cuss too. Rap truly is the Devil's music.

it is music. it may not be everyone's favorite genre(especially on here). i listen to rap, but i don't really care for it... there are only a fraction of rappers that actually rap about issues that matter in society. not about your fabulous criminal life, all your bitches, or how much money/"bling" you have...

Anyone can be a rapper, even my Grandma! She can rap about cooking for crying out loud!

its not an overstatement when you go to a school full people that listen to rap and commit crimes and be in gangs because of it. i know not all bad people listen to rap but the bad people who do are influenced by this garbage music. you'd have to see it through my eyes i guess.

i'm a biig fan of oldschool rap through the 80's and 90's, especially 90s gangsta rap. even though todays rap sucks in comparison, it is indeed still music. it has a beat, has lyrics, and is actually pretty good to dance to.

rap is still music whether you like it or not.


i'd take some Public Enemy, Del Tha Funky Homosapien, or Coolio over 50 cent, chamillionare, or whoever the fuck anyday

not that i dont agree but there has to be more to the reason on why they they allow it to influence them. I mean if it was just because of the music wouldent 100% of the people act the same way? even you said "i know not all bad people listen to rap but the bad people who do are influenced by this garbage music."

No, because all people are different. I can Listen to rap music and i'd never think to talk like that using bad words, saying nigga, using drugs, but some other person could listen to it and be like wow this guy who raps this is kool im gonna be like him and cuss and use drugs. there is a difference between people, thats why i said not all people who listen to rap are bad.
