It's so true, people down here eat up all this commercial ass s***. They listen to whatevers on the radio. The hip-hop from back in the day is dead, every rap song (and video) now is about girls, drugs, and cars. It's a shame, people now adays know who 50 cent is, but they have no idea who Afrika Bambaataa, Kurtis Blow, or Kool Moe Dee are.

Modern rap music tells children that being a gangster with guns, dope and all that other garbage is ok.

nothing is more pathetic than celebrating the worst a society has to offer. there is no 'artistry' in this.
nothing worthy of celebrating or admiring. a glorification of violence, drugs, and the objectification of women as nothing more than sex objects, if not outright whores. a sad commentary on our the times in which we now find ourselves.

Maybe if these loud mouthed rappers got out voted (according to the paper most of the blacks did not show up for the election), they could help cure some of the woes they sing about. However, they would have nothing to do but collect their welfare and food stamps if some of the problems they claim keep them "down" were actually solved. Too bad their black claim to fame will be bunch of filthy mouth hoodlums singing about their so called bad life!

This style of music is ridiculous. The only things it shows are bad language, bitches, teeth of people who died since Christopher Columbus discovered America, drugs, stolen cars as well as rims and others that I don't remember. This is so ridiculous to listen people play this trash in true people's face.

How DUMB...and repetitive is this story?
"REAL RAP/HIP-HOP" is whatever sells.The
first successful rappers stole Disco and Funk samples and rapped about partying.A rapper trying to show social consciousness or depth of thought will fall flat on his/her face ten outta' ten times.Why? Because at age 19-20-21...what the hell would they know? Nevermind that their audience usually knows LESS.Entertain people.Get rich.Invest wisely.

Hi nice piece I manage a local R&B singer Chaun Vernon, I agree that people like the simple songs. Chaun did a song about the soilders that got great responce when he does live performance He also got one about curricane Katrina that make people cry during live shows but will not be included on his album because i dont think they will help his album sell.

Its not music. If you cannot write it down on a piece of music paper it is NOT MUSIC. Rap and Hip Hop are for losers and morons. The grills and the car sound systems that vibrate through anything within a mile need to go away. It totally blows.

LOL , I still think the whole pants falling down thing is a fad started by the US government in the prison system. Making it cool to wear your pants so loose with your behind hanging out was an easy sell in jail (for obvious reasons). Of course , since young urban kids emulate such behavior , it became mainstream . Now law enforcement can catch them easier when they run after them .
Having a $400 Chevy Caprice with $6000 worth of ridiculous looking 26" rims and tires , a frog green two tone paint job , and a stereo that requires you to add another battery and alternator just so you don't kill the ability to return to your grandmother's house after you bust a cap in someone appeals to me.
I also want to wear the "pants" that show my silk plaid boxers , with a wife beater t shirt , and my hair in the "palm tree nappy dread" look and shine my BK whopper laden "grillz" at the girl that only has one baby in her arm as she wiggles down the street.
Hit a nerve yet?
Saw a white suburban kid in a pimped out caprice boomin down Congress in LW. Couldn't help but laugh at the fool. You forgot one thing - the blunt stickin outta the mouth and the smoke coming out the windows. I guess he's "keepin it real." Word up - I was not impressed...

I am Jamaican and I love music on a whole. I don't care what language or country it is from. Just as long as it has a good beat to it. I must say though that I don't like all the violent lyrics and the mistreatment of anyone in some of these songs. I never hear Will Smith or Beres Hammond curse in their songs. For all my island people out there, listen to Tessanne Chin's song (Hideaway)it is an amazing song to come out of the Caribbean recently.

I used to like rap-old school rap-not the rap now with diamond teeth/grillz, hoochies shakin' their fat asses on videos, degrading females, pants down to their kneecaps, and dreads that resemble dustmops. The music is garbabe now-crunk, talking about how much $$$ they have now, etc. It is all a load of crap. Rap sucks now- so I choose to listen to other outlets of MUSIC. Word.

Can I just say that I THOUGHT this article was about south florida rappers (I prefer the term lyracist). The only thing being addressed here is conscious rap verses whats popular. How stupid, I'm not going to join in on the bash. What I wanna know is why you chose to write about wack lyricst that no one even heard of (some of em) and only 5? Come on. There are way more than that! Why didn't you write about Butta Verses?? I'm from PA and even I heard of him. Next time do some home work on the subject before you write about it. Nothing wrong with getting your learn on before you bother to speak about a particular subject. Next time just write about Butta. LOL
