    Renaming something does not change its substance.

    Some rap is terrible, just like some rock is terrible. Whether or not the rap you have heard fits your musical taste, that's no reason to bash an entire genre. Calling people who are clearly fairly intelligent "retards" is highly offensive. And you stated exactly what rap is: poetry. In motion, in flow, in rhythyhm, in beat, in action.

    What do you have against that?

    BOTH! Omg both.



    vs.



    vs.



    vs.



    How could anyone ever decide??? o.0

    i agree with you logo there is the good and the bad and both sides consist of both good and bad.
    - triclebickle August 18, 2010, 9:32 pm
    I'm sorry, last time I checked it didn't take skill to rap. Just ramble on so fast nobody hears you, and get a sound geek to autotune in and put computer beats on. Give them a fucking guitar at the least.
    - iGreenDay August 19, 2010, 6:15 am
    Clearly you have not heard good rap. Rock has plenty of autotune too. And plenty of not discernible lyricists that make tons of money. Try pulling an Immortal Technique and rhyme, in beat, the word "Gentrification." Doesn't take skill my ass.
    - Logos385 August 19, 2010, 7:44 pm
    LMFAO "it didn't take skill to rap" u wish that wer true!
    "Just ramble on so fast nobody hears you"
    oh plz u gotta be kidding



    oh yea u can hear the disturbed lyrics so much clearer
    & u honestly think it dosent take skill? then u have never heard freestyle rap
    - thekitkatkid August 19, 2010, 8:10 pm
    they dont both consist of bad they just have some bad artists
    - thekitkatkid August 19, 2010, 8:22 pm
    yep thats the bad

    ask your friend what mood he is in. are you going to sit back and roll up a blunt? put some snoop on. are you going to work out? put some rock on. for me music is all about the mood i am in. all music has value. the best choice here is both. listen to it all. don't limit yourself to just one genre.

    I choose rap because people who like it are not insecure enough to insult people who like other genres of music :)

    You know, not all insults are rooted in insecurities. Sometimes when someone says, "This rap is bullshit," what that translates to is, "This rap is bullshit."
    - iGreenDay August 19, 2010, 6:20 am
    While it's fine for you to have the personal opinion "This rap is bullshit," when you insult people who have different opinions you are pressuring them to adopt your personal musical beliefs, which is rooted in insecurities or anger.

    I am sure many people, including me, do not personally enjoy Greenday, but that doesn't give us the authority to belittle people who do enjoy Greenday.
    - casper667 August 19, 2010, 11:50 am
    Alright so I agree. How about you tell me why I say everything? When were you chosen as the one to establish why words have been said?
    - iGreenDay August 20, 2010, 8:08 am
    Many people have researched this and I merely relayed the message to you. It is basic Psychology, which I thought was taught at almost every college and high school nowadays?

    Anyways, I'm glad you agree. I can tell you that your sarcastic questions is a step in the wrong direction. When you use sarcasm you are indirectly expressing aggression towards others. Hiding your opinions in a joke rather than putting your opinions out there directly also points to insecurities.
    - casper667 August 20, 2010, 4:30 pm
    look, fuck your psychology. Quit guessing why im saying stuff. The human mind is not textbook.

    rock is like a cold beer on a hot day, rap is like a 12 year scotch that is good now and then, classical is a fine wine that is divine any time, mood music is champagne that is only good in the company of a lover. i enjoy all alcohols and therefore all music.

    I think you have to think about every single band and decide if you like it or not...
    Like rock. there are so many subtypes and they are all slightly different.
    And i kind of like some rap because the lyrics and so on are great but I hate this gangta rap which is pretty much all about insulting people.

    but why this discussion?!

    They're both good. It depends on my mood which one I choose to listen to. I used to listen to rap before track meets and rock before going to school in the morning. Some Rock artists I don't like and the same with Rap artists. But I agree, can't really compare the 2.

    And all you have to do is listen to any legitimate rap group to not hear about that.... try Fresh Espresso, Macklemore, etc. Please don't underestimate a fantastic genre.

    Definitely rock. There are a few rap songs I like that are catchy and all but for the most part, I hate their rhymes and how they'll say ridiculous, unrelated things just because they rhyme. But if they can make it sound good AND actually be coherent, then cool beans. My favorite of both genres: Linkin Park and Hollywood Undead :)

    But rock definitely kicks all sorts of rap ass. I'm currently going through a Breaking Benjamin phase so...

    Figured I'd put my two cents in, I like both, both have good and bad. For all you hardcore rock fans, there are shitty rock songs, and all you diehard rap fans, (not sure that there are any) there are shitty rap songs. And all you people that say rap is not music, you are extremely ignorant. Music-an artistic form of auditory communication incorporating instrumental or vocal tones in a structured and continuous manner. Last time I checked, rap meets all these requirements. Just because its new and different doesn't mean it should be shunned.

    as a musician myself, i would have to say rock, because i know that rock musicians need to have natural talent, as well as spend hours of practicein order to make your music sund good. Rapping, on the other hand takes next to no musical skill, and almost anyone can rap with hardly any practice.

    rap is a lyric intensive median. You don't feel that lyrics are art? Let alone the music that goes along with it is not a music? Interesting coming from a "musician" such as your self.
