Who listens to rap?

  1. Apr 5, 2008 #1
    Seems like a lot of death and heavy metal fans on the board. Anyone listen to any rap? I listen to a little bit. I listen to all stuff from hardcore punk, to rap, to oldies.

    The only time I listen to rap is when it's forced upon me by one of those cars driving down the road with the thumping stereo.

    I used to like a little bit of the very old school rap, back before it was all dominated by the gangsta crap of today.

    Obviously you have never listened a group like The Roots.

    Well, the gangsta crap turned me off from it so entirely that I haven't listened to any in a few years. If the style has changed again, maybe I'll give it a new chance. Like I said, I liked some of it in the old school days, when it first came out on mainstream radio.

    The problem with rap is that there is a lot of bad rap out there. You have to really dig to find some good stuff, but its really good.

    Okay, it's improved since the gangsta crap...thank goodness! Though, that lead rapper is pretty lame sounding in that one (he's just talking like he's a stoned poet more than rapping/singing)...the chorus/background rappers are pleasant though. Though, I'm not even sure if I'd call that rap anymore...it's pretty different. I can't remember the artist now (dang), but there was one that one of my college friends listened to that sounded a lot like that...not really rap, but more rhythmic talking. At the time, the first time you listened to it, the reaction was "That's really weird, what the heck are you listening to?" but then it was sort of infectious after you heard it a couple times...pretty edgy for the time. This reminds me of that artist.

    Cy, I watched both clips and couldn't stand either.

    Almost the only piece of rap that I've ever liked is from the 90s - Coolio, Gangsta's Paradise!

    Are you serious. He was a one hit wonder, and it stunk the first time.

    Cyrus, when I was in my teens I was playing guitar, trumpet, bass guitar, harp and other instruments and singing to make money. This was in the 1960's, and I got paid to play. Rap is crap.
