The problem with Rap!!

This morning about 4am, this little car came right up to my bedroom window and started balring their RAP CRAP! It's 4 am. Popeloe are sleeping, even his if dumbass wasn't. I looked out my window and saw this little idiot just sitting there listening to the radio, I figured well maybe he just likes this particular song,(I say song very lightly cause hat ever was playing definately wasn't music in my book) and he'll turn the car off once it's over. But no, I see him turn on the interior light and is looking over some papers, Memo I have had it up to here with people having no respect for other people around them. Alarm Clock IT"S 4AM for god's sake. I'm sick of people not caring whether o not you can hear them outside while they are blasting their car stereos, Keyboard I'm sick of dumbasses breaking into others cars, I'm sick of people fihhting over the dumbest of things, like when I went outside this morning after having gave this idiot a full 15 minutes to have the sense to turn down the car stereo himself, and I had to get dressed and go out there and ask him nicely, or not so nicely since I wasn't in a really good mood at that point to turn the fucking stereo down! That I have a child right up in that window and you woke her up with that crap you call music. Yeah I said that.
This little idiot has the nerve to ask me if I would be as mad if he were white and playing piaino music on his car stereo, would I be as mad? Uh yeah, what ever is being played is to damn loud and it woke me and my family up a 4 am. What about this dont you get? So he said he was sorry and he would move his car away from my window, I said I didnt want him to move just turn the crap down. So then we ended up in an argument about wht rap is crap. Can you believe this? I have to say I don't remember all I said, But I made a very good argument. lol But as I sit here this is what I think. .......
People claim rap requires more talent than other genres of music and people claim rap is decent music. It's not. When you point out how horrible rap is to many people, they just don't get it. They actually get mad if they happen to like the crap. A few closed-minded obnoxious people would obviously like to know why I hold such a passion in hating rap, unfortunately they choose to ignore true talent and thus they fail to comprehend just why it sucks. It is for those short-sighted dumbasses, Baring Teeth that I will now explain my reasoning. First off, don't get me wrong. Not ALL rap is bad. I don't believe an entire genre of music can be classified as bad simply because of a few really bad rappers and their awful music. But there comes a point when even interpretation does not account for the pathetic attempt at "music" these "musicians" create. I'm sure there's plenty of decent rap Perplexed out there somwhere, if you like rap in general *I however, do not* but that is the minority. The majority of rap is absolutely laughable or in my case annoying as hell. As with any form of music, if you run it into the ground, people hear it everwhere and people are followers, well some are. But one person see's another liking this crap and more and more follow. The more of this crap there is, the more will come and the more crap rappers there will be. This is why these idiots are popular. They're like fucking clones, and if one is popular, the rest become the new trend for being like the original. I'm quite honestly amazed you peons have not discovered this by now. This is why rap sucks. Rap is a popular form of music. Especially in areas dubbed "the hood", because the poorly written lyrics easily relate to a poorly educated imbecile. Of course I'm generalizing here. I do realize not think ALL rap fans are living in some shit hole house with a .2 GPA, Dumb but in most cases, that seems fairly accurate. Look up any rap artist. It's nearly impossible to find one who does not have at least one song regarding sex, pimps, the ghetto, thugs, the ghetto, being black, or oh yes, the ghetto! Now you may say, "what's wrong with having those as topics? 90% of songs from the 80s are about love and it's sickening"...The 80's promoted bad hair. Tongue Out Rap promotes morons with morals equal to that of a dog humping a fire hydrant. I'm not sure if all you 50 cent fans are aware-being a pimp will get you nowhere in your future of "business law" or whatever job you end up with. You wont become a doctor by banging every chick on the street. And nobody gives a fuck if you "holla" at your "dawgs"-They will just see you as a total fucking idiot who does not know how to properly speak english. And for future reference-ebonics is not considered a language. Talking like you don't know how to pronounce certain letters does not make you a linguist, it just makes you a goddamn idiot. Confused Do you think dressing up in 30 lbs of gold chains and some craptastic basketball jersey will impress your manager? Fuck no, not even McDonalds would hire an assclown like you. This is my beef with rap.. And I'm sick of seeing these "pimps" trying to act cool, despite the fact that they look like they were rejected from the casting call of the Wizard of Oz. I do realize other genres have a large following of posers, but rap is by far more annoying because it teaches you stupid ideals that will get you nowhere in life. Now it's not just the way people who listen to rap act that pisses me off-It's the majority of the music as well...and I use the term "music" lightly because much of rap can hardly even be considered that. Rap often consists of some guy who parades around stage with a microphone nearly shoved down his throat, waving his hands at the crowd like an ape, while sporting enough gold jewelry, if melted and molded would be enough to make a small house. Shocked Now I could tolerate that, on one condition-if the music was decent. But it's not. Why not? well lets look at the facts. Most rappers *not all, but most* cannot sing. They can hardly even talk in a pleasent tone 90% of the time. . And it's not just the rapper's voice that usually sucks. It's the music as well. Typically, they are rapping to some pre recorded 'beat' that could be thrown together in 5 minutes without even needing a band. Techno requires more skill than that, and they don't even have vocals most of the time. In rap, the 'beat' is usually bland as well, and not even slightly creative. So what you end up with is some idiot dressed like a fucking clown moaning to insanely monotone background music about absolutely stupid topics. Anyone who finds that *good* music, is kidding themselves. The lyrics are often not even poetic. If you think rap can be considered poetry-make it a fucking haiku Mad and save me the misery of listening to it clutter up the radio stations for minutes at a time. I think everyone has a right to like whatever music they want, I really do.But when you allow a music genre to blind you as to what talent and morals are, then you are a true idiot. Most rap teaches you to be a dumbass, yet so many people claim it "makes a difference" because "people can relate to it". I must have forgotten about the whole rapper humanitarian movement. Lips Are Sealed ok I'll stop now.

  2. I usually don't pay any attention to rap, except maybe the Beastie boys. But their last cd was more political stuff than anything I think. I haven't listened to much music at all lately, I have rarely even turned on the radio in my truck lately.

    The dumbest thing I ever read, which was written by an editor of one of the so called local "news" papers a few years ago, was about the neighborhood he lived in. He said that his neighborhood was the cleanest, safest, and most happy place because abslolutely nobody listened to rap. And just how did he know that? Did he knock on every door and ask every member of every family what they listened too? Or go through everyone's music collection to find out? From what I heard this guy was a real idiot that thought he was such a great person. I don't even know if he is still around anymore.

  4. I agree Mary. The stuff just makes me cringe, however I have found myself liking a couple of the tunes. what I don't understand about it is that the lyrical base is derivitive of the same short beat. Nothing changes, one sounds pretty much like the other.
    All of our generations have had music that hacks off the oldsters, but this tuff has a habit of promoting and making look cool, the gangster..er...sorry...gangsta, way of life. The message is, if you don't have attitude than you ain't nothing. It's this 'attitude" I hate the most.
    The other thing that drives me crazy is that a good prortion of the really hot performers are criminals themselves. Hell, one even thinks it's great having been shot 6 times. Others are gunning themselves down in the street.
    So while our kids are hero worshipping some of these guys, they are out there, the singers, still doing business
    It wasn't right for the mass media to glorify punks like Dillenger, this is no different.
    Apart from this...or maybe even a part of it, the music at 4 am is a total lack of regard for others. He made refernece to you being the inconsidrate one by prejudicing him because of his race.
    Gee, just sit down at think about that for a sec.
    You get ME out of bed because your music is loud and it's my fault because I don't like your skin colour.
    Good grief...get a life and stop flattering yourself and turn the dam radio down. That's all, just turn it down.
    Everything in this new culture has attitude or has to be extreme. It's causing problems, especially combined with the Young Offenders act both here and in the United Kingdom.

  5. I like a few of the rappers to, a few songs are ok, like I said I don't hate all of it. And I have to agree the attitude that the kids are getting from the rap and the rappers is ridiculous. The kids and even the older people want to act just like what they see these people acting like, when Eminem went around grabbing his crotch all the time, all sorts of little kids started doing it too, and Eminem is one that I can listen to, well some of it. lol It just shows how we are very suseptible to what we see now a days.
