i think the reason why songs, especially rap songs, are so popular even with the vulgar language is because most kids don't actually LISTEN to the lyrics. they just love it cus the beat is catchy. i have to admit, sometimes i find myself bumping to some of that hip hop too... guilty pleasure :/.

the mainstream rap is giving hip hop a bad name. there is a TON of awesome hip hop artists who don't put any vulgarity into their music (not that they don't use profanity ).. and they sound much better than what is on mtv and the radio too.

If MTV airs alot of rap music, then it doesn't rightfully earn the right to call itself "MUSIC televsion". I would sooner consider a baby's fart music than most of the rap music that gets on the radio and mtv.

not all rap is terrible in my eyes some rappers are just straight up stupid while some are tolerable and very few actually are worth what they are
talking shit about the government = BAD
talking about sex = BAD
talking about shit they put up thru when they were young or has a moral behind it = GOOD

i personally like Eminem

My opinion.

Youth music: Generally Very Bad.

Music is, first and foremost, an art. The unfortunate thing is that more and more it is being treated as a business and artists are being controlled by their desire for fame and money rather than their desire to contribute their creativity to artistic endeavor. Some of them may also be controlled/influenced by the decisions of their labels, managers, etc.

The even MORE unfortunate thing is, people actually buy the crap they're being fed. So it's going to continue to happen.

i listen to rock most of the time... rap is just same topic over and over again... rarely they come up something different to rap about other than sex, ghetto, pimp, bling, money...
