Not really because it's not my taste.

I can appreciate the art and skill involved in writing and performing the rap itself but the 'music' doesn't really do anything for me.

I can't dance to it, sing along to it or enjoy having it loud in my car. Just my personal opinion but it's not for me!

I like decent rap that is basically poetry with a backing beat, but I detest gangsta rap that just talks about *****es and hos. What's the point in that? Music should either be good to dance to or meaningful, plenty of rap is neither.

Some rap songs can be catchy. The majority just aren't.

Not really, it's not really music, more like a boring beat that's on loop.

I agree with this. The majority of popular music nowadays have little actual musical texture, and for a music snob like me, doesn't really inspire.

yeah, love it.
You're able to dance to most of it, some songs have meaningful lyrics, the others have clever one liners and rhymes.
Music is entertainment and rap entertains me

I like Hip Hop if that's what you mean.

But I doubt we're talking about the same thing.

Yeahh, I like all types of music. Odd Future are bringing something cool to rap these days without losing any emotion. Used to despise it as well, probably because all I would hear was 50 Cent.

I actually love rap, but mainly just Eminem.
It's weird, generally my music taste is Classic Rock/90's Grunge however Eminem will always be my favourite artist ever simply because his lyrics are like poetry. They can make me laugh or cry or be a bit disgusted. He's so diverse, people listen to one song and form their opinion. But you kinda have to listen to them all to understand what he's all about.

Yeah. I like rap because it can be about anything, it can be funny or sad or crude. Not many musicians have that many different emotions in their work.
