    Yes I know this thread hasn't had a post in 3 months but...

    You guys have got to be kidding me. Simply listening to mtv (mainstream) rap and judging an entire genre based on whats popular.

    And for those of you saying rap takes no talent, I'd like to see you have a flow the moves synchronous with the beat behind it.

    Mainstream rappers mainly suck, shit like lil' wayne and all that bullshit where they rap about drinking sizzurp (promethazine with sprite and cough syrup) and getting high of suboxone) give rap a bad name. They rap about what they rap about because their record companies tell them what to write about. They tell them to write about what will be popular instead of what is good music. This is what most of you think rap is.

    If you want to listen to quality rap, find some independent rappers that don't have people censoring or telling them what to write (and don't sound like retards when rapping). Below is lyrics to a few raps that actually have meaning and well put together lyrics.

    lyrics


    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8K2H7HQ3kes

    Always on the road, Doing hella shows
    Day to day high and lows, but that's just how it goes
    When you grinding, homie ain't no rewinding
    Time but the family behind in this business that I'm in
    I don't feel anything and it's hard remembering
    Places and faces they think I'm what December brings
    The day is just like moments turned to hours ,
    All the graphs, sound check, radio spots and quick showers
    Hit the stage and get so much love from the fans,
    Keep it rough with the fellas, but I make the ladies want to dance
    And still I don't think you understand what's real,
    While I'm with you with my wife another chance is killed,
    And my kids all three of 'em suffer in the worst ways,
    Cause last year I missed all three of they birthdays,
    So when you see me with me eyes full of pain,
    Give me love cause these are three of the reason why I call the road 'the rain'

    im goin down now, because my mom frowns
    in a research psychiatric center without her son around
    and im deep off in this hole
    when im out here rockin shows (they say)
    I SHOULD BE HYPED CUZ MY LIFE IS SO ROCK N ROLL
    but i feel like the grinch mixed with ebaneezer scroug
    let the fever ooze up out of me clouded me never eager to
    let up when im in an interview they probably thinkin they gonna hinder dude
    cuz he be lookin like he might offend the rule
    never intricate to remember blues
    because is always right here
    with the henessy and light beer
    let it enter me and fight fear, yea
    i know i quit but i started back
    the homey called the ?gat?
    And my bodyguard ?nicholas? jus had a heart attack

    ....

    in any case my space is the basement
    i cant erase my embrace of encasement
    im chasin hatred my taste not complacin
    so as i go to the flo
    the industry finally opened the door
    but now im in the mothafucka all i feel is, low


    I'd like to know what you people think about either one of those songs (those of you who think all rap is the same).

    There are a few good hip hop groups/rappers, like fantastic four (german old school rap), prinz porno (german old school rap), afrob, ferris mc, king kool savas, laas unltd, optik army, and such, but mainly rap is BULLSHIT, like all those wannabe gangstas like Kollegah, Bushido, Aggro Berlin (they are not anymore there :p).

    I mainly like Metal though, and Rock... so...

    Some rap can be good. But it's as rare as people catching marlins using a stick with a line.

    Rap was invented by a Swedish poet who put a (at the time) rock beat in the background of one of his writings, around the 1950s

    MY VIEW:
    Many have met people who say they like all genre's of music, but then deny liking Country, Rap, Rock, Techno or any other thing. I personally honestly and truly do like all genre's of music. I love rap it's in my top 5 genre's easily. But only talented rap.

    As for those of you who so ignorantly stated that rap takes no talent, I want you to go and try to write a "good" rap song. ALL music takes talent to make.

    It takes no talent to make a rap song. This is true, but it also takes NO talent to make a rock or metal song. The only type of music that TRULY takes talent is classical because if it's NOT made in a special way it's not considered to be classical style music.

    Rap takes talent because it's real poetry, just with a beat in the background. I must admit that most mainstream rap is not as good as underground however.

    Talent is overrated. Practice is what counts. Anyone can write and compose a song of any genre given appropriate practice.

    Also, rap poetry? Haha.

    It was at one point. Most is no longer. However, I have grown a liking to La Coka Nostra and Everlast. I have always loved Everlast.
