This, I agree with the most and I was trying to be nice.


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.


That guy don't seem to get that what he is saying isn't matter of fact but a OPINION and even then it's pretty weak as an opinion and I don't agree with Rap today either.

As a half black/white american I find BET an insult to every African american. Rap/hip-hop and all other mainstream forms of black music are terrible. Only good black music is Jazz from the 30s-60s lol. If someone has to say booty shake a thousand times in a song it should just be burned.

Does James Brown ring a bell? How about Marvin Gaye? Will Parliament-Funkadelic do it? Or Curtis Mayfield? What these 5 artists have common is the fact that they appealed to both mainstream and underground even though they started underground. You can't just write off 3 decades of music like they didn't have any impact because if they truly were terrible people would of lost interest and it would of fell to the wayside. Ever heard of Ronnie Laws? He's a pretty good Jazz artist from the 70s. Or Najee? He's a pretty good Jazz artist from the 80s.

I'll have a hard time doing that with artists like Drake or Nicki Minaj giving the genre a bad name I'm more 80s-90s with the likes of Eric B. and Rakim, Whodini, Snoop Dogg, or Ice Cube.

Yep, the good old days. Even though he not like he was, iam still going to cop Snoops "coolaid" album next month.
I just ordered Statik selektah and Kxng crooked (crooked i)'s latest album. Still want to get Killah priests "planet of the gods" album and looking forward to Raskass's "soul on ice 2"

Hoping for a new slaughterhouse album also.

At least kendrick is good an i need to look into J.cole more. I cant beleive how whack most new rappers seem though but i guess i dont follow the scene like i used to.
And todays kids follow the local scence more than the American one.

I like Kendrick because he is that Old Skool, West Coast, G-Funk with a new twist and I felt joy when I found he won George Clinton a Grammy.

No, it was Wesley's Theory on To Pimp A Butterfly. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=s0QtdISwioc

But that was a good song too because Mr. George Clinton got Ice cube to do some new music.

As a Nordic-American I don't get why you guys don't reference your ancestry more. Africa has some really neat traditions and had very powerful empires. Seems strange some artificial gang shit culture gets promoted but the culture that created empires or has lasted for millennia gets ignored.

You guys need more African shows showing the Zulu, Songhai, or Mali. Sort of what they did with Vikings: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=IuuehdOPTPQ FOR GLORY FOR ODIN! FIGHT AND YOU WILL BE TAKEN BY THE VALKYRIES TO VALHALLA!!!


i hate to be that guy but....our ancestry has been blurred by white people. (and don't say "not all white people blah blah blah." You know exactly what white people I'm talking about.) A large majority of us have no idea what tribe we come from, or even what country our ancestors hailed from so it's kind of hard to know exactly what traditions to celebrate. Also, all the shitty rap music being put out now a days is being pushed by old white guys in business suits that don't even listen to rap.

like....THIS is the guy responsible for what gets broadcasted on BET



I'm quite convinced that it's all a part of some diabolical plan to get Black Americans to destroy themselves and each other and sadly it seems to be working quite well.

With that said, we do have a lot of music that talks about our ancestry....it's just most black folks don't even bother listening to it. You Nords have sick ass Viking Metal like Amon Amarth, we have Roots Reggae like Steel Pulse and Peter Tosh. In the early 90s and 2000s we did have a few artists that would talk about black oppression and how we need to come together, but i guess The Suits (the old white guys i mentioned before) weren't having that and well.....now we have today's rap music

I stopped watching music award shows after the 80's and most music today does not due it for me. I really miss Michael Jackson and most 80's music.
