Psy’s “Gangnam Style” is YouTube’s latest sensation and now the Korean rapper is making the U.S. media rounds—appearing on the MTV Video Music Awards, The Ellen DeGeneres Show, The Today Show, and Saturday Night Live. As of press time, the “Gangnam Style” video had over 188 million views, making it the most watched K-pop video in YouTube history.

The music video features a tuxe-wearing Psy doing his funky horse-riding dance to an incredibly catchy beat in a number of upscale locales. As Psy explained on The Ellen Degeneres Show, one of the themes of the video, and Korean Gangnam district for which it’s named, is “dress classy, dance cheesy.” The Gangnam district is an affluent and trendy area of Seoul, which Psy compared to Beverly Hills.

“Gangnam Style” was released on July 15, became a hit in Korea, and has now become a worldwide sensation. According to the LA Times, “Essentially, the song is about finding the perfect girlfriend who knows when to be refined and when to get wild.” It is the first K-pop song to hit #1 on iTunes.

    You have zero tolerance for rap because your ignorant and lack understanding.

    Don't like it for the same reason I dislike opera and rap I can't stand the sound of it. There must be music you don't like but I wouldn't call you ignorant.

    A good rap song is like poetry. If you believe rap is ''talentless crap'', you are a ignorant fool who lacks knowledge about rap.

    Some rapers utilize rhyme schemes, figurative language and metaphors when composing a song. This is a rhyme from a famous artist.

    ''...[ ] I can rhyme with consistence
    Indisputable evidence repeatable on the street or in studio session
    I am sorry if you feel I am refusing your questions
    that's not my intention, my mind is in a higher dimension
    At these levels I have much higher attention
    Ascension into a level of rhymin defined as divine intervention
    My intent to present the most intensive lung splitting
    tongue twisting sentence ever historically recorded to present
    But that is not the point of this lesson, I will continue this poetic expression, you must listen to make the connection.'' (Lunar Deluge)

    I would like to listen to a song that you think was composed by a talented person.
