when you used to be an avid hip hop listener who moved on to rock n roll/metal because you were driven away from the wave of the new talentless, cookie cutter rappers that glorify drug use and violence, whose passion isn’t involved in their music, but in their bank accounts.
@csortof , so sometime after the eighties? Because the kind of rap you’re talking about has always existed but those in the know always find the right flows. It’s also okay to say you mentally aged out of the kinds of rap you could enjoy, rather than bashing a whole genre with generalizing untrue statements.
@LightskinDarkNig, good point, man. My main thing was that before hip hop became “pop” it was good. Black people had an outlet to voice their own stories, written in rhyme schemes behind engaging instrumentals. They showed off their various talents and broke the rules of music to fit their liking. I’m not saying all music must be meaningful or follows music theory, but epstein didn’t kill himself.
Is this [every user that comments on my music posts]?
@Tyler643, no, I wouldn’t say fück rap. Growing up in California during the era of powerful rap with NWA being a huge presence I was a big rap listener and lover, but after I grew up and figured out what rock was I walked away from RAP, the reason is I like talent , I like real music being played. Not just beats and back ground sounds, I went to a rap concert once. Greatly disappointed with the performance and how boring and lack luster it was , no hype no real instruments being played and half ass lip singing and songs that lasted 40-50 seconds then just a dj playing beats, that killed it for me, when a friend took me to a rock show and I saw a dude bust out a Guitar solo I feel In love with rock and as I got older it got heavier , watch in a drummer blast beats is amazing the rhythm the metal voice singing that shows their veins pop out of the neck and face showed me they where really singing, to me rap is subpar to most music now a days with the existence of mumble rap
@Tyler643, old school rap is still solid , but these days the people they let get famous is just sad, I live with the good music, but trust me. The combinations a sick ass guitar lick, a strong bass back up , a strong drum set and a nasty vocalist makes a great band live up strong , to me I will say I like music not entertainers
@DrSin, there are still some good artists out there albiet they are few and far between
@moneyeatnoodles, although true, bring out a new heavy rock band and just listening to the marriage of vocals , guitar , bass and drums outdoes just some dude rapping that where I stand , they can have. Amazing lyrics but if we just let them acoustically would you still listen ? Give a metal band an acoustic guitar a wooden box and the vocalist and watch magic happen
@Tyler643, this is way funnier than the meme itself.
@DrSin, the thing is, there’s as much good rap as good rock, and as much bad rap as bad rock, simply put. it’s all about whether or not you discover it yourself or wait for it to be played for you. the latter will often give you bad examples. rap is an art form. one of the highest forms of art in music, in my opinion. the way producers (who often do their own rapping now) cut samples and turn them into completely new soundscapes is undeniably impressive. the way a verse can be turned into an abstract portrait of poetry with intense figurative language skills is one of my favorite aspects of music as a whole. it all depends on where you look, and i pride myself on knowing all that i can about genres of music. modern rap is not to be entirely overlooked. and yes, everything you just mentioned about what leaves you in awe about rock are some of my favorite about the genre, as well, and apart of many hip hop acts today. might i suggest death grips if you’re not already familiar.
@DrSin, the band is very experimental and includes all of my favorite aspects of hip hop and sometimes even rock combined. band has an experienced live drummer, as well, and his rhythms can be so bafflingly complex it just leaves me with a dropped jaw sometimes. not easy to get into if you’re only accustomed to the mainstream, i suppose, but i’d kick myself for not recommending them.
Its not racist to not like mumble rap, it's embarrassing to rappers
To be fair though, mumble rap is garbage
There’s one for every genre. They’re all “racist”... or not. It doesn’t matter, it’s fine.
@Cave Dweller, wait, that sounds racist, are you racist? You must be a white person, if you are racist. Are you a white person? PRIVILEGE! You have white privilege because you're racist!!! Shame! You stole Greta Thumberg's childhood, you know, the one where she dropped out of school to sail across the Atlantic Ocean solo and speak to the United Nations and then met a whole buttload of rich and famous people while touring the USA on an all-expenses paid trip topped off by a tour of Europe in 1st class luxury?
Totally robbed of any joy or fulfillment. Truly tragic loss.
@Hot Coffee, that’s the one.
Dude even snoop dog sh!ts on mumble rappers.
In this picture and quite content with it.
Y’all call it mumble rap Bc the ppl that rap like future an young thug are from the absolute trenches of Atlanta where everybody talks like that, it’s not their fault you any understand them, but once you do, you can really get into the lyrics, a good example of this is purple reign by future
I'm all about that white powder everyone is talking about!
