aren't they? Atleast I felt like screaming and headbanging back when I listened to metal
You can't jugde crime and violence by the music the people listen to.
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.
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 ).
I mainly like Metal though, and Rock... so...
Rap sucks Metal is for me !
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
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.
