It seems like a lot of people here have a very ignorant attitute towards rap music. I see a lot of people saying that rap isn't music, which I find extremely stupid. What makes a song? Guitars? Well last time I checked, having beats, melodies, and lyrics should qualify something as a song.

Seriously, all of these are good songs by very mainstream rap artists. (Without even mentioning underground rappers, who I happen to like more and I'm sure a lot of people on this site would also.) If you don't like these songs, that's fine. But not liking a song doesn't make it bad.

Another song by a rap artist(This one a more underground artist). Listen to the lyrics and I assure you that the story it tells has more emotion/skill than most rock out there.

Thoughts? Can anyone tell me what's with all the rap hate/ignorance?
Chinese Democracy is a great album, people need to get over Slash.

Have you ever considered that some people honestly do not like the approach of the music?

I can't listen to it, I find it very lackluster stylistically. Rap, by nature and definition, is just lacking something in my eyes. I'm sure I can't be the only one who shares this opinion.

rap has no talent, takes no talent, and therefore deserves no respect. anyone can protools a beat, and anyone can talk fast. its not that difficult.
