I did a search for a thread titled rap or hip hop and got nuthin, so if there is one already made my bad, but i didnt see one anywhere. And this is diffrent from the "Good Music", "Chris Brown beat the shiznit outta RiRi" and "Kid Cudi Retiring" threads, obviously. This thread for users who respect Hip-Hop/Rap for what it is, and listen to it and tell there opinion and why it is good or why it is bad. Posting or linking to some good hip hop/ rap stuff to hook others up to what your listing to at the time. If you says a group or person sucks, why? Post song lyrics, names, beats, etc, to back up your reasoning. I know there is a lot of bad music in hiphop, but here is also a great deal of brilliant works, and this goes for every form of music. Debate and disuss, but dont come in making a single line like "Rap sux" "Rap is Crap" and then leaving the thread without explaining yourself. Another reason for this thread is to teach a person here and there that Hip-Hop/Rap is good, and more people should listen to it, no matter where you from, age, race or religion. Music is universal.
