(This is referencing to gangsta rap, just an fyi)
Rap is not music, simply put. It is second worst, only to dubstep. It is simply a man or a woman saying random words very quickly. The meanings of the songs mainly revolve around the same thing: sex, drugs, women, shootings, and violence.
Rappers cannot sing one song without swearing. (Even if the song is about something decent, they still swear like there's no tomorrow) The amount of abbreviations in their songs is simply painful, and it's a mystery to me how some words can be even deemed: words.
They all look like idiots dressing up in leather, tight clothes, or sagging pants. Putting metal in your teeth as "grillz" makes you look retarted, and the amount of tattoos on your arms and face will not make you look even more "bad-ass". The amount of 'gold' and 'silver' "bling" that you wear, makes you look flashy and it seems that you're trying too hard to get attention.
Barely any of them can sing decent live. It's a mystery to me how so many rappers are this famous, and have these fast fortunes when they are terrible singers. (Live, or even in the studio)
Rap is a terrible genre. What ever happened to simple jazz and soul music? Why isn't that cool anymore?
