Not really sorry!
Not I said the cat, with a rat-a-tat-tat. The cat with the hat and the bling, and the jeans with the gat. He is too cool for dis, and too fly for that. That's why this cat says hell no to rap.
Just kiddin. Rap is alright, but I think I pretty much pick out the people I'll listen to. For the most part, I am a rock/metal junkie, and don't give rap a chance. Stereotypically, this is because of the very trendy and popular vulgar junk that gets spat out, and the disrespect that always seems to be shed about women in the process. Certain guys like Kanye, and Trip Lee are alright by me though.
As the famous saying goes... You can't spell crap without rap.;)
Old School rock n roll, soft rock, hard rock, even metal is better than rap in my honest opinion.
Alright i agree with you guys on the current rap game that is all about iced out chains but the rap I like is guys trying to change that.
Up-and-coming guys from Kid Cudi rapping about things that matter, XV who plays video games (stuff I can relate to), Wale, or 'Drizzy' Drake.
There is a lot of good Lil' Wayne, there has to be the guy puts out so many songs.
And of course Kanye West. Those guys do Rap Music.
Wow, I never figured I'd find a Suicide Silence name drop on Clanram. It's good to know I'm not the only one that mixes deathcore and football.
Anyway, I used to be anti-everything but metal, I've learned to diversify and appreciate a lot more stuff these days. Especially 90's rap like Ice Cube, Ice T and Tupac. RedMan is onto something there, they really were that decade's Bob Dylan. There are/were a lot of things wrong with the world they grew up in and they made passionate music to speak out against it and draw attention to it.
I've always enjoyed someone that employs a lot of passion with their work.
The bulk of today's rap is kind of lacking though. From the beats all the way up to the rhymes.
