Oh, for flying mother****ing ****s sake, stop the bitching against rap! Jesus christ, it's so immature. Rap and hiphop is just as much music as is classical music, grindcore, or jazz and blues. The thing is, most mainstream rap artists are total ass, which give the great artists a bad name. Compare mainstream hiphop to your everyday rock/emo band with powerchords.

There is sooooo much good hiphop and rap out there, and the lyrics are so much more deepgoing and impressive than MTV's "pop a bitch's ass" lyrics.

Stopped reading here:
"Rap is not music. The unpleasant-sounding horror is chaotic dissonance and certainly not elegant consonance"

Rap is music as said above.
So please close this thread before a war starts
