    Me, I'm picky and choosey about what hip-hop and/or rap artists I will listen to. Basically, I hate music that relies on "nice beats to shake ya ass to" to sell. However, I do enjoy MCs who tell stories in their songs or at least have interesting/thought provoking things to talk about (i.e. Nas, Kanye West, Eminem, Jay-Z, etc.) and if they have a few club hits on the album, so be it.

    If you are a fan of hip-hop and/or rap that has something to talk about and are looking to hear something new, check out my friend JayBlaze, an upcoming MC hailing from Oakland, CA @ http://www.myspace.com/jayblaze2005 and let me know what you think.

    I've got a very ecclectic taste in music. I love hip-hop. Of course, alot of what is being played on the radio these days shouldn't even qualify, but whatever.

    Who is Mike Jones?

    Nope. Actually I can't stand all this pop punk ***** that is flooding the airwaves lately. Yes, I love Green Day, and yes, they are "popular", but they are not to be categorized with that other stuff.

    I listen to a wide variety of music. Everything from heavy metal to classical, and yes, that does include some hip-hop. :)

    He enlisted into the military and got out while being stationed in South Dakota. He's now pursuing the rap thing and is staying here until he starts making that $$$.

    By UGLIEST humans, are you referring to the rappers themselves?

    It seems to me that as of lately a lot of the flashy bling-bling rappers have been featuring ugly overweight girls in their videos... Could it be they like their big a$$es? Hmmm.

    I dont know about the videos you watch but the ones I see deals with very hot girls that love some guy that they normally wouldnt like but like him for his money.Just stating the obvious....and yes I was refering to the rappers.Also the ugly overweight girls are usually made fun of in the videos or kicked out of the rapper's party or something :rolleyes:.I like some rap songs but I prefer rock much more...but my opinion changes every now and then, maybe someday Ill be a hip hop fan.

    Ok, I do see rap videos with "hot chicks" dancing in them, but more and more I'm seeing big booty (big everything) women shaking their stuff in videos... Not my thing, but some dudes like that I guess.

    And yeah, I'm much more of a rock fan myself, but when a rapper is good, I'll admit it. JayBlaze...I've seen him putting his everything into making music so I can appreciate that...and he has great potential.

    I totally agree. You know what I'm really sick of? These goddamn "dirty south" "crunk" so-called rappers. They have no talent whatsoever, and yet their music is all you ever hear on the airwaves. And they have nothing interesting to say at all. Not just that, but their music just sounds annoying. Mike Jones is a perfect example. And Trillville, and Lil Jon, and Lil Scrappy, and Petey Pablo. Can't stand any of them. I think the industry's dying, and it's their fault.

    I do love hip-hop. But the bling bling **** is old. I listen to people like Nas, Tupac, Gang Starr, Immortal Technique, Hieroglyphics, Souls Of Mischief, Zion I, etc etc. I respect your opinions not to like it, but don't make fun of it. You don't see me going in every thread that has to do with rock or metal dissing on it. Please, don't trash every rap thread with you spam. I agree that he asked you a question, and I respect that you answered. But please, leave it at that.

    Don't lose hope. Support underground rap artists. They're what should be the future of hip-hop.
