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.
If you listen to rap from back in the day; like Public Enemy and KRS-1 it's amazing how respectful they brought the hammer to those who often strive to oppress and throw rocks and hide their hands at fellow man.
No not my type of music most rap singing is about sex, hate,bad language, hate other racial & killing people!!
I really dislike rap, I listen to very very little rap.
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
Yes. As long as it has a positive message. Calling women ugly names and rapping about crime, drugs and sex is not something that is pleasing to my ears.
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.

We study Shakespeare's poems, and those of other classic writers. Shakespeare's poetry has been around for more than five hundred years! And yet today, children are learning about it in high school. Which makes me wonder: Who will be remembered and celebrated five hundred years...

What music do you like to listen to when you are stressed?

I listen to Lil' Wayne and hear nothing from the lyrics. I used to listen to classic rock before I got into rap, mostly because the songs were about something. Then I heard underground and got into real artists. I feel as though only underground rap is actually preaching a message, talking about...
