no, rap music is for record executives
As with all Genres there is a 'Pop' side and a quality side. Ignore all the chart crap, because as you say, it about money and materialism.
If you look far enough there is some quality Hip Hop, ranging from Jazz to Funk to Lounge. Thats what hip hop is, a fusion of different samples and styles, which doesn't even have someone rapping over the top. Check out DJ Shadow, Unkle or the Roots.
mostly, but so is everything else
Yeah, I know one time a peron put on the SPM album, the song was "wiggy.." it was fuckin hilirous.. undergroup rap or something
Don't forget KKKountry music. They used to call it "race music."
yeah i know i hate when white ppl try to be black. you dont see us trying to be white!
All rap is the same: kill, drugs, pimp, bitches, racism, robbing, drive by shooting, selling drigs, cars, gangsters, sex and guns. Its about time people realised rap is wrote by tallentless freaks who like to lie about their childhood.
While I'm on the subject; whats all this east coast and west coast crap? Why do they go on about this in almost every song? They are all from the same country. As for them being gangsters - YER, WHAT EVER!! My grandma is more of a gangster then 2pac ever was! He did ballet for god sake; thats how much of a pimping gangster he was.
They all say they are keeping it real, if they are then why are they living in a 2 million doller house, and driving a 500,000 doller car - They are all full of crap!!
rap is bad. it promotes violence, drugs, pornography, vulgarity, filthiness, and crime. it also makes the people who listen to it use improper english. it makes them not care about grammar. it makes them not care about speaking decently and getting an education and a good job. the rappers and the record companies make the money, but the people that listen to it still become worse for it. rap is a cultural cancer to society at large, and unfortunately, pandora's box has been opened because rap is mainstream now, incredibly, and almost revered by the general public... and yet they wonder why their daughters get pregnant, and their sons go to jail. rap should be banned... it should be treated like porn or marijuana, and confiscated from the hands of innocent children before they become totally and irredeemably corrupted.
hey you anonymous wanker maybe you are one of these kids you black brixton slag who needs to be shot a million times in the face beeatch!!!
It's all about telling a story and speaking the truth...too bad history books couldn't do it.

Its for white wannabes. Who would want to act black? DISGUSTING.
The reason everyone wants ridiculous spinning rims on their beat up car is because of rap music, also that is why at clubs people go and try to act like they are hard in front of their friends.
Its for angry people.
