Rap is an art form that is generally associated with gangs, murder, drugs, bitches and dissing
other rappers. However, this
is not always
the case. A lot of times, the rapper, a.k.a., rap artist, or emcee, talks about real shit
acutally happening in their lives that has changed them
people diss rap because of it's usually
drug related material, although most
people who say this
listeners of some form of rock music, which basically also talks about
drugs, sex and Satanism. Take Korns song "A.D.I.D.A.S.", for example, the theme of which is how "All Day I Dream About
Sex." Not that it is a bad song, but whomever listens to this
song and says it's good music, then turns around
to 50 Cent's "Candy Shop" and says it's crap, is a total, fuckin hipocrite
And at least most rappers are religious people that
the Lord for all that
he has done to make their lives
at least slightly bearable amidst
all the bullshit they
've gone through. Unlike rock
has many artists praising Satan and commanding
people to follow the will of Lucifer. When has any rapper said such a thing?
Now, this goes to all those who say rap has no point to deliver: Have
you ever sat down and listened
Eminem's "When I'm Gone"? Or DMX's "Ayo Kato"? Or Tupac's "Changes"? If you haven't, then you should try it someday...Do they
a more emotionaly stimuating
point to deliver than
Disturbed's "Down With the Sickness"? Or Maralyn Manson's "(s)AINT".
I am an avid fan of both genres, so I have
a perspective of both sides, and I say that rock
and rap are basically the same thing.
Derek- "Damn, man! Rap misic is da shit!"
John- "Dude, rap sucks! It's just garbage! It's about
nothing except some guy talkin about
bangin his bitch, or him bitchin about
his life is!"
Angello- "John, man. First of all, rap can be about
a fuckload more things than drugs and bitches. Second, they're not bitchin to anyone! They're expressing themselves."
Derek- "And third, rock is just as equally drug related as rap, you fuckin hipocrite
