Hip Hop...Rap...that's not music. Its people who can't sing. All the songs sound the same. It's terrible "noise"....not music.
If they could sing, they probably wouldn't be rapping, dumbass. None of the songs sound the same, wtf are you smoking? Turn off MTV and BET once in a while, that's an entire genre of MUSIC you're stereotyping.

Wow, 100% ignorance in action. Everyone should take a good look and this and strive to not act this way.
1) Tupac is his real name.
2) "White musician's music"? The most sampled artist by hip-hop producers is JAMES BROWN. White? Then there's George Clinton and Parliament. Don't even go there.
3) Good producers do not just cut and paste other musician's music; they reinterpret it and, ideally, improve on it. But I'm not explaining this to you.
4) The rest is just racist, stereotypical bullshit. No matter how you dice it, its racist. I'm surprised you didn't say "superior" in front of every instance of "white".
Get the hell out of rap threads, bitch. No one's insulting your "white man" music.
Don't waste your time trying to school the uneducated masses. I hate people who hate rap and have nothing but extremely negative things to say because no one will talk to them in real life.

PEACE

Hip hop is universal. "Some" of the "real singers" earn royalties and are even brought back into the spotlight that re-ignites their career.

To the rappers, always steal white musicians' music and integrate it into your mindless rap songs. They are too busy praising you to sue you.
46) Rappers should always remind people of how many times they've been shot and lived to tell about it (like we didn't notice them on our TV screens). This way, everyone will respect you even more. Remind everyone that rap music is "the only way out" of the 'hood and crime, as if you weren't still stealing cars, money, or drugs.]Make up retarded names like ICE-T, ICE CUBE, Notorious B.I.G., and Tupac (Tupunk) to call yourselves. As if Tyrell, LeShawn, and Shenanae weren't retarded enough.It doesn't matter how shitty your car is, put the biggest diameter rims on you can find, and the most expensive stereo system. Ride around in white neighborhoods at night and play rap music as loud as you can. We love the rattling trunk, we really, really do.
as i read between the lines i see a person that is not only envious of rappers,but in fact hates their own dull life.it's okay to say you appreciate hip hop,i'm sure the one and only friend you have will understand.
i know this may be hard for you to grasp but it's okay to enjoy all types of music.try to broaden that narrow thing you call a mind and learn how to listen without tainting yourself first.
ingnorance is not a strong argument.let me guess, you were one of the first to complain that elvis was corrupting teenagers and led zeppelin was causing kids to do drugs ?

Why listen then? I'm not a fan of heavy metal I don't dismiss it I just don't listen to it. Why waste your time talking about it?
