With good reason. If I hear it, it sounds like random noises, pointless and usually, I cant understand what they're saying. I'd rather hear static on a radio.

With rock or metal, there's actually skill involved not just putting some words that rhyme together then hopping around. You need skill to play the instruments, takes years of work. With this rap and such, any idiot can do it, just grab a microphone, get some half-decent beat and rhyme random crap with some theme to it. I find it to be a waste of time and sometimes, an utter headache to listen to.

Hear, hear *applause*

plus it seems to be very permeating, the bass can penetrate through seemingly anything and is very annoying, I can't say for sure but rock/metal does not seem to have the same effect

In my mind, some of the posts here are just typical responses from people who know nothing much about the genre at all, i.e. 'it requires no skill'... 'anyone can do it' and so on. But, each to their own, I suppose everyone's entitled to an opinion. I'm mostly into classic rock, doom, trip-hop, post-rock, sludge etc., but I'm still partial to the odd bit of hip hop. Not the type of rubbish that the likes of 50 Cent and Lil Wayne dish out... but stuff like Wu-Tang Clan, Immortal Technique, GZA/Genius etc.

Although it's not in the same vein really, more of the trip-hop side of things... I also like DJ Shadow, DJ Krush, Cut Chemist, etc.

LOL AT PEOPLE SAYING IT TAKES NO SKILL

some of these rappers are absolutely incredible witht heir rhyme scheme, their presence on the mic their flow their lyrics etc


to make a beat takes enough work as it is!


biased opinions are always funny to read. I listen to rock but it gets boring after awhile, cause all the songs are repetitive all the songs with true meanings are depressing and boring.

please expand your horizion before commenting on rap heres an example of a song

I got a call from my girl last week
She telling me about that time of the month, and how it may not come
Dropped the phone right before she said i might have a sun
And i started asking God how come
I got dreams i aint reach yet, ends that aint meet yet
And when it comes to being a man, shit im barely getting my feet wet
Trying to hit reset, knee deep in debt
Trying to figure how you feed a mouth that aint got teeth yet
How the hell am i gonna show a child to be man
When im twenty two without a clue on how to take a stand
Against the system when its just us
Wanna show him justice, but last year i was just in cuffs
The fuck am i supposed to do when he's telling me dad i need some food
Im looking down at my stomach and mines is rumbling too
What could i tell him when he's twenty two
And he's asking me what the fuck was i thinking when mommy's tummy grew
Was i scared? was i getting prepared?
Or did i even think of leaving him without a father's care?
Should i tell him that its hell here and life aint fair?
Or should i try to make a change when he's pulling on my leg
And he keeps on telling me to....

(show me the good life)
Show me (4x)

Wont somebody show me, its a few things my popa never told me
Maybe cuz his stone is still rolling, no moss yet
Its a few things my momma never told me to mold me
But her soul is so golden the way she floss it
And i aint mad at they secrets though
Its a hard sell to tell a young child bout ya' deepest low
But i done seen through they weakness so
I understand a little bit on how defeats can slow
You so far down that your meekness grow
And everyday it get colder when the breezes blow
Grandmomma sat me down said you need to know
Boy you a little light in this world, let your heat just glow
Have patience, some things take time
It aint no limit to the goals you hold in ya' mind
Let the soul in you climb to you reach the gates of heaven
Like your chariot its carrying children who've gone blind
And you gone get them they sight back, when all they see is night black
Believe in every thing that you doing and just like that
Things'll happen for you, keep shinning them rays
Its bright enough to spread grace over a million graves
Of a million slaves, to bring honor to the elders
Who held us away from danger, when the danger would've killed us
They never failed us, let they souls have peace
And follow in they footsteps, you brothers to keep in this good life

(show me the good life)
Show me (4x)

Its so much i can show you, without rolling through beverly hills
Without money, cars, clothes or even ecstasy pills
I dont need weed to ease me when im stressing, fa'real
I just close my eyes and try to think how heaven feels
Just to feel good again, even though i know when i open them
Its back to the hood again where kids hold chrome with them
Just to feel protected cuz the videos are showing them
How to shoot fools and take they doe from them
Thats why i try to give my soul to them in lyrics i spit
They reject it cuz they stressing for material shit
They getting sick and tired of fighting over cereal gifts
Cuz they notice bitches go head over hills for the whips
And the chains, and the chips, and the range and the clips
And the guns, and the women and the fun
Living in cribs in the 'burbs, fuck the slums, they want funds
And they heard flipping birds is the ticket
They get it and they run with it
Some slip and fall, others pause, see the out come and call
On the Lord for some change cuz the game is too hard
To play straight by the rules, im trying to stay out the news
And make cake to buy food, fuck jewels
I think my soul glows bright enough, and fuck whips
I learn more when i ride the bus, and fuck gold
Its bad enough that we fight for bucks, and fuck hoes
Cuz in the end i need a wife to love
Plus heaven is the life for us, so God...

(show me the good life)
Show me (4x)

To be honest, It doesn't take a lot to rhyme. My opinion is not biased. I'm looking at it from a melodic point of view. I'd much rather listen to something with great guitars, piano, instrumentals than someone who is literally speaking down a microphone pretending to be cool.

Re: Whoooo likes rap/hip-hop in here>>? - March 12th 2009, 04:27 PM

problem with everyone and rap is they are stuck to the radio on rap

the underground scene is where its at

the most lyrical and grittiest songs are not played on the radio

regardless if you guys like the gritty songs like me the lyrical ones are still on point as my example above

just as if i were to base rock off what i hear on the radio
nickel back
cold play
simple plan

pfffffffffffffffffffffff

I grew up on the crime side, the New York Times side
Staying alive was no jive
At second hands, moms bounced on old men
So then we moved to Shaolin land
A young youth, yo rockin the gold tooth, 'Lo goose
Only way, I begin to gee off was drug loot
And let's start it like this son, rollin with this one
And that one, pullin out gats for fun
But it was just a dream for the teen, who was a fiend
Started smokin woolies at sixteen
And running up in gates, and doing hits for high stakes
Making my way on fire escapes
No question I would speed, for cracks and weed
The combination made my eyes bleed
No question I would flow off, and try to get the dough all
Sticking up white boys in ball courts
My life got no better, same damn 'Lo sweater
Times is ruff and tuff like leather
Figured out I went the wrong route
So I got with a sick ass click and went all out
Catchin keys from across seas
Rollin in MPV's, every week we made forty G's
Yo nigga respect mine, or anger the tech nine
Ch-chick-POW! Move from the gate now

[Chorus: Method Man]

Cash, Rules, Everything, Around, Me
C.R.E.A.M.
Get the money
Dollar, dollar bill y'all

[Verse Two: Inspector Deck]

It's been twenty-two long hard years of still strugglin
Survival got me buggin, but I'm alive on arrival
I peep at the shape of the streets
And stay awake to the ways of the world cause shit is deep
A man with a dream with plans to make C.R.E.A.M.
Which failed; I went to jail at the age of 15
A young buck sellin drugs and such who never had much
Trying to get a clutch at what I could not... could not...
The court played me short, now I face incarceration
Pacin -- going up state's my destination
Handcuffed in back of a bus, forty of us
Life as a shorty shouldn't be so ruff
But as the world turns I learned life is hell
Living in the world no different from a cell
Everyday I escape from Jakes givin chase, sellin base
Smokin bones in the staircase
Though I don't know why I chose to smoke sess
I guess that's the time when I'm not depressed
But I'm still depressed, and I ask what's it worth?
Ready to give up so I seek the Old Earth
Who explained working hard may help you maintain
to learn to overcome the heartaches and pain
We got stickup kids, corrupt cops, and crack rocks
and stray shots, all on the block that stays hot
Leave it up to me while I be living proof
To kick the truth to the young black youth
But shorty's running wild smokin sess drinkin beer
And ain't trying to hear what I'm kickin in his ear
Neglected, but now, but yo, it gots to be accepted
That what? That life is hectic

a lot of beats take samples from rock songs and incorporate it into the beat

lol and try and rap over a beat try it

its a lot more difficult then you would believe, your presence and flow has to be on point with the beat that you are rapping over. And have you ever seen freestyles

goddaaaaaaaaam ino a lot of it is pre thought about but still some of it is absolutely insane

I do think i have am quite wide in my music taste but i just dont click with hip-hop or rap, i just don't enjoy it. The closest thing i like to it is Handebers by Flobots but thats pretty much it.

Most radio's don't play "proper" rock either, and if nickelback and simple plan is your idea of Rock. LOL

Fair point though, I probably not have heard all the "underground" stuff, just like you haven't heard what I call Rock, but based on the media of what Rap is, I don't like it.

Blame the media for the lack of interest in Rap.

What radio station do you listen to? Nickleback is pop, no respectable rock station would play it.

Rock Songs can and do have excellent lyrics:

I'm home again, I won the war,
and now I am behind your door.
I tried so hard to obey the law,
see the meaning of it all.
Remember me? Before the war.
I'm the man who lived next door.
Long ago...

As you can see, when you look at me,
I'm pieces of what I used to be.
It's easier if you don't see me
standing on my own two feet.
I'm taller when I sit here still,
you ask are all my dreams fulfilled.
They made me a heart of steal,
the kind them bullets cannot see.

Nothing's what it seems to be,
I'm a replica, I'm a replica
Empty shell inside of me
I'm not myself, I'm a replica of me...

The light is green, my slate is clean,
new life to fill the hole in me.
I had no name, last December,
Christmas Eve I can't remember.
I was in a constant pain,
I saw your shadow in the rain.
I painted all your pictures red,
I wish I had stayed home instead.
Yeah!

Nothing's what it seems to be,
I'm a replica, I'm a replica
Empty shell inside of me
I'm not myself, I'm a replica of me...

Are you gonna leave me now, when it is all over
Are you gonna leave me, is my world now over...

Raising from the place I've been,
and trying to keep my home base clean.
Now I'm here
and won't go back believe.

I fall asleep and dream a dream,
I'm floating in a silent dream.
No-one placing blame on me,
But nothing's what it seems to be, yeah.

Nothing's what it seems to be,
I'm a replica, I'm a replica
Empty shell inside of me
I'm not myself, I'm a replica of me...
