Underground and old Skool are awesome, with meaningful and relatable lyrics. Mainstream is just pathetic.

The quote keeper was overrun by terrible quotes, so it's better than some of them. Why not?

I have to agree with that. Like 95% of it is garbage, just my opinion. The media pushes it really hard too. It gets the "cool" label so everyone just jumps on it.

Just curious, anybody ever notice how lame and "uncool" they make white people look on tv now?   -_-

A lot of them get sampled and ripped from other people  :(
I guess some of it still sounds cool but that's kinda cheezy.

I prefer poems. Poems are a good way of expressing your feelings. I guess rapping is a way of expressing your feelings too, but in a sick twisted way. V_V

Seriously, everyone has their own opinion. I can't stand metal, it sounds terrible to me, but since so many people like it I'm not going to call it bad, as that would make me look like an idiot.

A lot of rappers talk about meaningful things, dont just turn on the radio and think that everything you hear defines the entire genre. Hopsin, Eminem, Immortal Technique, Tupac/Biggie, Kendrick Lamar, and so many other rappers talk about more than the common mainstream artist.

Also, I have no idea why you'd ask "Whats so good" about a genre of music. How are rap fans supposed to even explain that to you? If its not what you like, its not what you like, we can't just make rapping sound good to you by explaining it. It's poetry done synchronized to a beat and instrumental.

Once again, don't generalize the entire genre based on one Tyga song you heard. Rap isn't singing about $$$ and how many whores you get, thats just what a lot of rappers talk about. That doesn't mean the entire rap genre is "sick and twisted".

Yes.

If you haven't listened to enough of a genre to realize that, you shouldnt judge it.

"everyone has their opinion." I wasn't judging it, I was giving an opinion.

I guess it's just cause there is so much bad rap it overshadows the really good meaningful, artistic stuff. There are some very talented rappers. Hell, I have fun when me n you rap battle back and forth. Metal gets a bad rap a lot of the time for the same reason tho. Sometimes you never get to hear the guys with real talent.  :(
