Its not bad, it just sounds diferent and they say f**k alot.

That jus my 2 cents though.
these few crappy artists are all mainstream. they are mainstream because people like them and pay money for their records/concerts. A majority of rap fans prefer these crappy artists because they rap about sex, drugs, and breaking the law. The term "degenerate youth" was coined in the rap era.

and chewie, ive never heard of them. which means they arent mainstream. and by them not being mainstream supports my theory that most rap fans like the crap that is put out today.

WHispering death. i agree with you 100% Rap has great beats. i have the instrumental version of In The Club. I like the beats. But what does it say about a genre of music where people like the music more than the lyrics? It doesnt take a rocket scientist to realize that rap has horrible lyrics.

i agree with you 100% about the mainstream part. the larger audience someone (or something) has, the more dumbed down it has to be to appeal to that larger fan base. goes for pretty much everything.

"Well it's got a good beat and you can dance to it so I give it a 90."
(Only anyone over 50 can understand this)

well i'm a rock and heavy metal chick myself. guns n roses, motley crue, ac/dc, led zepplin, that stuff all the way to like system of a down, slipknot, and korn. some rap is ok, but overall i think it's completely overrated especially since half of them have no talent for writing what so ever. there's few real poets in the rap business.
