    This is how I see rap:

    1. The guy isn't singing, he's talking! For crying out loud he's talking!
    2. Why do they keep pointing their fingers? I mean is there a secret message? "50cent wants you!
    3. The main attraction is the tons of hot girls who would of course never be with the real ugly guy unless he paid a large sum of money!

    nah you're ignorant. I don't "hate" any other genre of music because of what I've heard on the radio. So, don't talk. :)


    1. Ok, than the only type of music you must like is American Idle or country music, cuz that's the only kind of music where the artist is truly singing. Music isn't all about singing, dumbass. :rolleyes:

    2. Ever hear of hand gestures?

    3. You're just stupid.

    It's so ironic, cuz all the haters are calling hip-hop fans idiots when they're acting worse than the crunk fans.

    Allow me to challenge that, Spider.

    1. Every heard of poetry? Spoken word poetry? Hip-Hop formed out of that.

    2. I have no idea what you're talking about, but I guess it has some truth to it.

    3. The main attraction for me is music. Just like you enjoy listening to your genre of music, I like mine. I don't watch music videos, because the channels that play videos play crap ones, and I'd rather listen to my favorite artists without the distractions.

    and to Jibe, I know enough.

    I like hip hop, rock, and jazz. Every other music form can kiss my tight and toned black arse.

    Those are all great artists. Although Del and Deltron were the same person last time I checked.
    You should check out MF Doom and Gang Starr.

    As to the uploading. Nah, it's ok. I'm on this P.O.S. mac, so I probably couldn't even play it. I'll ask again once I get home.

    Well yeah but Deltron had Kid Koala DJing, and it's a different style than Del usually raps, so I put them in seperate.

    * If you can't comprehend what I'm reading, i apologize, I just had to get some things off my chest**

    I'm a hip hop fan, & the thing I can't stand the most is when I hear dumb comments how hip hop isn't music! Hip Hop raps about killin cops, bi%ches & h*'s! The school I attend is mostly white & I'm talking 96% white, 4% black, so you know I have to hear that B.S a lot!

    I kind of like rock, but I don't go bashing other type of music genres that I don't listen to because that personally pisses me off! It seems like everyone ignores Kanye West's" Jesus Walks", Naz's "I Know I Can", or even Nick Carter's " Can I Live"! It seems like people who criticize hip hop never look at the positives but are obsessed w/t the negatives! The thing that pisses me off the most is when Bill O'Reily convinced Pepsi to release Ludacris from their contract! But when Pepsi hired The Ozburnes to advertize their product, he didn't say anything & all of a sudden got a case "HUSH MOUTH"! I'm not calling O'Reily a rascist, just an ignorant [email protected]!!

    Too many Hip Hop Bashers focus way too much on the cursing , which really dosen't bother( only wack artist like B.G who rhymes are lame). I didn't hear anybody bi$ch about Kid Rock or Fred Durst who curse a lot & having half nakedf hotties in some of their videos! Instead of always focusing on the negative in hip hop, please find it in your heart to at least once in a while
    focus on the positives!

    I agree with you for the most part, but let's not put "Nick Carter" and Hip-Hop in the same paragraph please.

    Also, people b(*&(ed about Fred Durst and Kid Rock more than you know for cursing and having half naked girls in their videos, moreso than most rappers. That's probably the main reason Fred has received so much criticism over the past seven years.

    I agree with you that there are positives in hip-hop and rap (Kanye and Nas being two of the best examples), but it's the ever-popular Lil' Jon, Triple Six Mafia, and other "crunk" rappers/producers that are making the genre look bad; the same way these new pop punk bands you see on MTV are making rock music look bad.

    I'd agree with you, but his song "Can I Live" really does put out a good message, and it sounds very soulful too. But of course that last part is greatly helped by the great Anthony Hamilton, but it's a very good song nonetheless. :up:
