I live in a white neighborhood in new york state. all of the people around me are preppy, punk rock loving retars who dont give a shit about rap. they call it fast words that only talk about guns, sex, cars, bling, drugs, and other material possesions. this is what rap has become. this is what i refer to as "pop rap". this is just rap that sells. the people i was talking about before just heard 50 cent on TRL and thought it was gay. rappers like 50 cent, cassidy, trick daddy,g unit; these are the type of people who are ruining the image of rap. if you really wanna judje rap you gotta listen to the old and the new. people like tupac actually can teach something. listen to the song "changes" by tupac. there is no way you can tell anyone that that is a bad song. also, people like common and kanye west actually rap but it actually is poetry. eminem is also different. he raps about life experiences, and how terrible his childhood was. other gangster rappers may do that, but notice how eminem doesnt mention guns or any crap like that. i.e. his song mocking bird has nothing bad about it. it talks about his love for his daughter. what is wrong with that?
I actually like a few kinds of rock, like jimi hendrix, led zeppelin, the ramones, and the rolling stones. i think that rock today isnt that good. people say that rap promotes wiolence, but you have to listen to some rock today. ive heard rock that promotes suicide. so before you judge, listen.
guy: rap sucks!
guy 2: listen to tupac
guy: wow rap is good
