I only watched the first half of the show and I thought it was pretty good and funny.

Yes I can. Rap isn't music and my whole generation got screwed because the music we grew up with was worse than the last generations music. On the plus side the Japanese were making good music for my generation :D

My people? Who are you talking about? Americans, British, some nationality, some culture, or some skin color?

It's too much of a black thing for anyone to comment on really but it's not as terrible as the MTV awards. how the entertainment industry chooses to market black people is they're own doing. it's just the amount of money those people make is the embarrassing thing to me. agents and managers I mean

We differ in opinion and honestly I'm not trying to argue and by my people I mean African American as in the whole package, culture, race, and all and I don't really care what the Japanese has done because they certainly were not thinking about me or you when making that music but I'm still saying you can't blame a whole genre of music because of a bad few. Plus how about I say Jpop isn't music which I certainly think isn't true even though I don't listen to it.

The Japanese could be sitting on the pot thinking about trying to poop while writing for all I care. Why do I care what they are thinking about when they write a song? Rappers are just thinking about the money anyways.

A bad few? Rap might as well be some dude talking with a repetitive beat put to it. You could turn congresional speeches into rap just by adding background noise.

Hah their music takes skill, talent, and practice they cant make a new song everyday https://m.youtube.com/watch?v=04gjrgDoRb4 any monkey can and does make rap.

That's your reason for Rap not being music? Because you think it's all about money and just some dude not caring about what he says? You got it all wrong, Rap was and still is a way for a message to get out and I'll give you a few. And since anybody can write a Rap, I want to see you write one.

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=95gP3m-uBHA Monkeys huh? You try doing this.

Rap is an art form used for expression just as much as anything that you consider music and your the only one on here trying to argue that Rap isn't music and if it wasn't record labels wouldn't be signing Rap artists.

And another thing, I can discredit what's in that link just as much as your trying to discredit a whole genre but I'm not going to because being an artist in general takes a lot of skill and I could really care less about what's in that link because like I said I don't listen to Jpop.

I mean everyone is entitled to their opinion but iam guessing they are judging "rap" from crappy commercial shit that they see/hear.

I mean i dont really consider techno as music lol but really it is, tecnically.
