Is Rap music really just another kind of Air Guitar?


It takes hardly any practice, dedication or skill to play air guitar. Likewise if you can rhyme words and talk then anyone can rap. Is this a reflection of a culture based on instant results with no dedication to craftsmanship? Is this why rap has been with us for over thirty years without any sign of abating? Slam poetry is now in full flight. Slam is just rap without even the music.

    Older styles remain but are usually rejected by the next younger generation for their own new style.

    I rarely feel anything listening to rap. Usually I feel amazement at how fast a human being can talk while on amphetamines.

    Not to go too over the top - a lot of his stuff really is terrible!
