    Personally, I love rap. I dont like everykind of rap, but i dont like just the mainstream. Some people say you can't spell crap w/o rap (which you can't.. i think.) I'm open to all minded music, I like rap, rock, heavy metal, r&b, christain rock, alternative, pretty much everything except techno, opera, and even tho i say i dont like country, i do like sum like garth brooks just cuz it reminds me of things. So anyway, what kinda music r u into and do u like rap or not?

    I enjoy rap......Eminem, Dr. Dre, A Tribe Called Quest, Beasties, etc.... I guess I enjoy what some people call 'white people's rap'. I also like 'adult contemorary'/alternative, like Wilco, Beck, Cake, Luna, and much more.....

    its not nessacarliy (can't spell) considered white rap. Dr. Dre in my mind is one of the best ever. And I think when eminem dies, he'll go down as the greatest rapper ever. Or at least ONE of the best, next to 2Pac B.I.G., and all of 'em

    Rap and Hip Hop are awesome, Rock and Roll will never die, but it's just not where it's at these days. Mainstream rap can be pretty awful, but the underground stuff is the best.

    There's quality rap and there's shit rap, which is present in any form of music. There's this stupid bickering, at least from what I've seen, between rockers and hiphoppers. The hypocrisy is ludicrously funny. Rockers will bash the hell out of the state of hip hop today, with the soulless blingbling copycats, only to worship their own cookiecutter gods like the (insert bland punk rock band). And vice versa.

    That's pretty much true for any kind of music, especially rock, with exceptions like U2, Coldplay, The White Stripes, etc... Bands that manage to be mega-famous and produce quality music simultaneously.

    True. Except I'm open minded to any kind of music. I just dont like certain types. I can listen to christian rock, and then rock out to marilyn manson, and then chill to some 2pac, and then read the lyrics to My Chemcial Romance. Just depends on my mood

    Rap has no culture huh? Rap has plenty of culture, though just not on TV, radio, to put it out. You may judge something (not saying you do) because its on TV or the radio or something like that. Most rap was underground, and not known. And its not all YO YO, WORD TO MY G'S. Some of it's violence, and where they grew up. Some of its how they come from very poor neighborhoods to where they are now. Some of it is God, and how he helped them. You could get some underground rap, and realize not all of its the same. I like hip-hop too, though I think hip-hop today is turning to just a cool beat with no meaning in its lyrics. And you don't need to think that I'm only into rap. I love rock too. And heavy metal. I enjoy almost every type of music, just depends on my mood at that time

    Well, there are some... cannot really say types of rap, can you? There are some Artists who make quite good hip-hop/rap music. But most of it simply sucks. Christian Rock, just like Christian Metal sucks worst of all, and I also do not listen to it out of principle, just reading the texts normally suffice.

    Anyway, I will keep listening to punk, rock and metal, most other kinds of music bore me or they just suck, like those bitches Britney Spears and Christina Arguilera (or however she is spelled).

    Rap is very primitive and must have been a way the first humans in Africa started to make "music".

    It is always interesting the way history can repeat it'self.

    On the contrary, the rythyms are more complex than anything Bach could write down, and the rhymes are subtle and often profound. We all know you hate the blacks, J.B, but lighten up, if it wasn't for Africans, white music would suck, and there wouldn't be any rock and roll.

    Well, either way I'm still open-minded to any kind of music. I like the music you do, and I'm into more music then just that though. Also, I agree with you about Britney Spear and Christina. They're hot, but should not sing. And as for boy bands (this is just hilarious) no matter how tough you think you are, how bad you talk, how much "cool" clothes you wear, at the end of the day if you have to sing something like "bye bye bye" or "i love you giiiirl" then your pathetic. And I agree with spidergoat, and most beats are made, and then transferred to computer, but I won't get into the advanced making of the beats. The lyrics are usually pretty good, though some is meaningless and crap

    LOL. What a racist.
    The most advanced music is primitive? Give me a break.
    You have no idea what you are talking about do you?

    Racists are brainless.

    Ugh. That's my opinion about rap. Let's hear it for the old school rock/pop! I think most bands these days get it too easy and don't make the effort. Obviously I'm excluding Coldplay etc.

    Now whites are a group of people to you?
    Even with there own music?

    OOOOOO I see, as long as you say whites "suck" somehow it's OK.

    Maybe "white music" sucks because of all those musical instruments those sucky white people invented:

    Yes. Whites are not superior to anybody. It is simple racism. Rap music is great music that talks about reality. There is no other music anywhere that portrays reality like rap music does.
