    It's awful, and so is most of rap. The song writer is just writing some lyrics and saying them moderately faster, which is nothing like reading poetry where there is a concious decision to let the words appreciated. Rap requires nowhere near as much talent as songwriters of bands like the Beatles, Velvet Underground and Bob Dylan. The Beatles and Bob Dylan both put poems to music, and why are they regarded as more talented? They SING the lyrics, rather than just spitting them out at a hundred miles an hour...
    While i agree that delivery is a very important factor, the lyrical content here and in most rap songs is a different type of wordplay, the 'hundred miles an hour spitting' is down to your inability/unwillingness to take it in as a lot of people dont have a problem.

    Both formats are based around word/sentence/metaphor/wordplay/delivery appreciation portraying emotion, telling a story, feeding ego, social issues and situations etc.. only difference is one is stereotyped to intellectually superior white people and the other 'in da ghetto' black people.. oh and one requires a beat.. but its musical poetry of course...

    :tea:I fully agree with you brah, I think not taking time to properly sample and listen to a genre of music before you make judgements is simply ignorant.
    Have you done this with all genres of music?

    NO, but I never say a genre of music is crap because i haven't yet sampled it. Obiously

    Oh, I see. I don't think it's that surprising that people hear a few hip hop tracks and make a decision about it based on those, though. (For the record, I have nothing against hip hop.) I mean, most people "hate" classical music these days, but "classical music" is a stupidly wide genre. I guess people will always make judgments based on the little they know - particularly in music, where there is so much choice that you kind of need to be discriminating to get anywhere.

    Good point. I really can't think of anything better to do with my time than listen to some guy say words that someone else wrote for him, over music that someone else made for him......

    Surely you must be talking about pop and Rnb music, because rappers write their own lyrics mate. That's what makes them talented unlike the shyt you get off the charts nowadays, where their songs are written for them and all they have is a good voice which they were born with.

    I was pleasantly surprised actually by how few people on here claim to hate classical

    Good rappers are talented, Good lyrics, good flow, abstracts thoughts, the use of excellent metaphors and cool concepts.
    Trust me you've got it all wrong. Anyone can rap, but only good ones deserve credit. Anyone can sing but only singers that write their own songs deserve credit
