2 The preceding comment literally cannot be upvoted enough. The irony is, back in the day everybody said rock music would kill society and then rap came along and actually did kill it, along with killing rock as well. -- Submitted By: (DolFan316) on February 9, 2016, 6:11 pm - (4 votes) - Login to Vote
3 Bashing cops and saying nigger while forbidding ANYONE ELSE to use the term (and forgive me for using it, just illustrating.I have many black friends and teachers). -- Submitted By: (PokeyJHorse) on February 4, 2016, 11:28 pm - (4 votes) - Login to Vote
4 A typical rap "song" these days is how many times you can use the N word, the B word to describe a woman, and the F word on one track. And what's up with rappers with their bodies completely tattooed up? -- Submitted By: (JayD) on October 11, 2014, 8:11 pm - (1 votes) - Login to Vote
5 I've had a phase where I've actually accepted Rap. I've had my select favorites: Snoop-Dogg, Dr.Dre, Ice Cube just to name a few. Lyrics mattered as much as the beats did. Now it has become nothing but flash and complete ego-stroking every inch of the way. If you have ever watched a rap music video. You'll notice that the theme is the same exact thing. You watch one music video, you've seen them all. It hasn't changed in three decades, it just grows gradually more exaggerated every decade that passes. They always claim that they're not in it to make money. That they're in it to make themselves heard and how hard times are. Newsflash, asshole. We know times are hard and if you're not in it for the money. How come you are going off about how big your house is, how many bitches you fuck within a week, how much drug/alcohol you get away doing everytime and how much money you make off of your so-called "music"? I guess the times are not that hard if they're making so much money off of this genre. Which is why it's trash. -- Submitted By: () on September 27, 2014, 2:34 am - (0 votes) - Login to Vote
6 Yes, at some point in the 90's artists stopped singing about the hardships of life in the ghetto. The older rap music was about difficult times, resulting to artist singing about rebellion in this harsh environment, rebellion against "the man", having to survive the violence in the hood, eventually ending up in the wrong crowd and paying the price, etc. (This is why I always have and still enjoy most Metal, Alternative, etc. It's usually about the struggle of life in hard times) Instead this "new", "gangsta" version of rap music today focuses on being flashy, needlessly showing off in a "pimp mobile", etc., being lewd with women and doing drugs just because you can. The more the better, it's seems like it's just people trying to show off. No drama, nothing to relate to, no structure, no political statements, no self-control or restraint. Just stick with hip-hop from the 70's, 80's and early-to-mid 90's... Otherwise, go underground. -- Submitted By: (Crewman) on July 3, 2013, 2:06 am - (0 votes) - Login to Vote
7 I don't think a week goes by without the news of a rapper being arrested or being killed, and it is often a rapper I've never heard of. And ever notice how so many rappers have dollar signs in their name? -- Submitted By: (JayD) on March 25, 2013, 5:48 pm - (1 votes) - Login to Vote

9 I remember in the 80s when every adult around seemed to just *know* rock music was "Satanic". Well, rappers make rockers look like choirboys. They've destroyed America from within in ways far worse than the paranoid 80s adults ever thought rock would do. Rap is crap!!! -- Submitted By: (DolFan316) on August 25, 2011, 6:38 pm - (4 votes) - Login to Vote
10 Most rap these days is mediocre and easily forgetable. Today, the selling point seems to be more about the collaborations than the music itself. -- Submitted By: (JayD) on August 24, 2011, 12:56 am - (0 votes) - Login to Vote
11 I think the East coast vs. West coast rap wars were both the climax and decline. Rap was at a peak talentwise, but the songs started entering the now familiar territory of demeaning women, talking of drugs and money. Once 2pac and Notorious were killed in the late 90's, the creativity, heart and soul disappeared. -- Submitted By: (kingbk) on May 30, 2011, 12:59 pm - (0 votes) - Login to Vote
12 There is no denying that the genre has been important in terms of its influence on other musical forms, and for that I appreciate it. In fact, it's spawned some interesting hybrids like rap metal and rapcore. But I agree with most of you that when the artists set aside the social commentary and just became all about drugs and guns and pimping and the shallowest sort of materialism, rap lost its heart. -- Submitted By: (Soggy9000) on May 29, 2011, 10:35 pm - (0 votes) - Login to Vote
13 It became just another fad that was turned into commercial crap and then run into the ground. It really wasn't that great in the first place. -- Submitted By: (lrbloom) on January 8, 2011, 7:51 am - (0 votes) - Login to Vote

15 I'm going to repeat ScootyB's comment because it sums it all nicely ...This isn't music, it's just a breeding ground for the scum and trash of this world. -- Submitted By: (JustLooking) on October 10, 2010, 3:41 pm - (2 votes) - Login to Vote
16 I was okay with Rap when it was fun Sugar Hill Gang, MC Hammer, Young MC, Etc. However, it did seem that at one point in the early 90's it looked almost as if Rap was starting to die out and give way to something else when Rick Dees went on the Arsenio show and stated with confidence that Rap was 'on the way out.' That, to me seems to be the point where Rap rallied and went into overkill mode with all of the "cop-killer" and hyper-sexualized themes. I blame Rick Dees. -- Submitted By: (Friedrich_Feuerstein) on September 8, 2010, 12:32 pm - (1 votes) - Login to Vote

18 My brother listens to rap, but even then, most of the stuff he listens to is the stuff that was around before rap got way over-commercialized and was nothing about cars, jewlery, and hoes. Ineven agree. Don't care for it much, but the stuff from the 80's and 90's is way better than the stuff they package and label as rap or hip-hop today -- Submitted By: (PYLrulz) on May 3, 2010, 6:23 am - (1 votes) - Login to Vote
19 Wait, Eminem has a social conscience? Since when? Honestly, I'm old enough to remember rap from the beginning and it was *always* trash, only I listened to it when I was a teen because...I was a teen. In the 80s every song was all "I'm from da hood and I kill ten people every day before breakfast and then I screw some bitches and hos then I kill some more people so don't mess with me or you're next!" Then in the early 90s the content actually improved a little but the fad of deliberately NOT rapping in time with the beat started and got on my nerves. Then in the late 90s suddenly it was all about "Look at all my bling, I'm much richer than you! And here are all the hot chicks I'm boning! Be jealous of me!" Ever since then I've pretty much stopped paying attention but even *I've* noticed it's gotten even worse. They can't even call it "rap" anymore, now it's "hip hop" since that sounds less threatening to parents of today's teens. -- Submitted By: (DolFan316) on May 3, 2010, 3:14 am - (1 votes) - Login to Vote
20 When they decided to go from fighting the power to boasting about their bitches and hos in the club. Really, when social conscious was gone so was the integrity of rap. We only have Eminem left and even he is declining. -- Submitted By: (johnnydough) on May 2, 2010, 5:44 pm - (0 votes) - Login to Vote
