Whats your opinion on rap? Do you like, love, dislike, or hate it?
Personally, the whole girls, drugs, money stuff sucks but when you find real artists, you see the greatest, most meaningful lyrics. I love rap. I'll always think it's the best genre.
Ex: Same Love by Macklemore

    Rap isn't necessarily bad, it just depends on what context a person raps from. I personally like old school rap: Dr. Dre, N.W.A, Grandmaster Flash and others from the 80s and 90s. Although I like some of the new rappers that are out there, especially Eminem and Macklemore.

    Awful. It promotes racism. When the most prominent thing in black culture is black people acting like arrogant aggressive wankers, talking about how they treat women like crap and commit loads of crimes, how are white people supposed to like them?

    When I hear it on the radio or television, I can't change the channel quick enough.

    It really depends on the song. Some rap is crap, but some songs are really good too. A good song, rap or any genre, is a work of art.

    loathe, disdain and treat like a petty con.

    First, it isnt even music. second it is very harmful to our society. we did a poll in our school, 32% of the students listened to rap. over 75% thought that drugs are ok and they dont need college or to do good in school. Where as the 77% who didnt listen to rap only about 25% thought that they dont need college. See the difference???

    I kinda like the cleaner rap. But the foul language kind. And the kind that degrades women, I don't care for.

    I don't like it. If other people do, that's fine. I don't think there's any point in making fun of a whole genre, just because I don't enjoy it, like some people do.

    I'll have to say that I like rap. I mean it has a good beat and all.

    Me, I can't stand it myself. For those of you that do like it then that's fine enough but I just can't hang with it. To me it's just a bunch of talking and beat. I don't like it.

    I listen to rock, metal, punk, jazz and alt rock. And honestly, I don't mean to offend - just stating my opinion, I don't count it as music. I mean it's great when it's like an addition to a song of a different genre, like in Walk This Way by Aerosmith and Run-Dmc. And stuff like rap-rock and rap-metal are great, but when a whole song is made of effects, a beat and someone rapping, it's just lame. And kind of sad in my opinion. :/

    Love it; seems like no one has been paying attention to all of the amazing current rappers out there, which are a lot.

    Rap is for egotistical, immature minds. HIP-HOP is the grown up version. Give me The Roots, Sean Price, Talib Kweli or the like anyday over jerkoffs like Eminem and Rick Ross. I wanna hear an M.C., not a "rapper". Rappers talk about themselves, money and other ego-driven superficialities. M.C.'s tell stories and talk about REAL life and inspirational subjects.

    im glad somebody knows the difference between Hip Hop and Rap. However Eminem been paid his dues as a respected lyricist and flowmaster. I don't where you summation on him came from????(Mockingbird alone is a masterpiece)

    cant even argue with that Ghost. great points. I just think his flow is out of this world, but your argument holds weight.

    Thanks, man. It sucks because wouldn't it be awesome if he used his talents for really awesome, positive points instead of being a jerk?

    Ahh, I had thought dislike would be big here. Depends on the demographic of voters here.
    I like rap because I make sure that I listen to the good stuff, and that was when rap was in its infant stages, in the early 80's.
    Then, people used rap to protest against racism, and other problems in society. This was good, because the young could relate to the language used. However, rap has turned foul.
    1- Objectification of women, especially black women. We are being demeaned as hoes. The real hoe are the ones rapping about screwing so many women a night.
    2-Violence. Thanks to the thug attitude, all black men are being racially profiled by the police. A great deal of them are NOT thugs.
    3-Degradation: the music has gotten worse over the years.Thanks to Lil Wayne, I will not be buying anything from Cash Money records. Stupid name for a label, anyway.

    They still do protest all of those things in large numbers; people are just overlooking them.

    I'm tired of getting rapped on the back of the head.
  • Angryface01 2012/07/19 07:36:23
    Honestly, my opinion is more like NEUTRAL. I believe that all music is valid and should be considered an expression even when we don't like it. I've never liked Picasso's work, and many would call me un-evolved for that opinion. However, there are a few rap artists who create unbelievable works. Some of these artists write poetry that if read for content rather than beat, would blow your mind.

    Rap is a part of music, if sung nicely & with meaning in it, the message can be delivered.....it's main goal.
  • Iamfree 2012/07/19 05:23:07 (edited)
    I think there is some great talent and skill in some rap, but too much of it is populated by haters, misogynists, and just plain racists. The obscenity makes it too horrible to listen to. A shame really.
