Uhhhh in a word no ! When you are sampling someone else's songs in my mind you are stealing. Although I will say Jay-Z has one or two songs I can tolerate.
LOL to Tony0724's comment! I like some rap, mostly the old school stuff..like Tupac or Warren G. Don't like the crap that's out now though.
Well I certainly when i think that I need to listen to something disgusting.
Music is always evolving and this genre is relevant to many people. For me, it has to evolve some more before I will be a steady listener.
Old School and new rappers who rhyme about causes and progressive communication, which is why rap was originally started. Mos Def, Common, Talib Kweli are all good artists. Today most of the Hip Hop community is selling out for dollars; those I do not support in any form.

yuck I hate it, other people like it, I hate all that seems to go with it, drugs, violence, it's music for those in a black hole of despair

Absolutely not. "Old school" was about dancing and having fun. The so-called rap artist today have lyrics that are filled with hate, anger, dispect and disregard for human life.
