Soulja Boy, you tell 'em!

Updated on August 29, 2008

Rap music sucks. At least, this is heard quite frequently where I am from (which, consequently, is an extremely rural area.) And those who do claim to enjoy rap music are the ones who you see listening to such amazing, original songs such as "Crank That (Soulja Boy)" and "Walk it Out," both featuring original dances! Seriously, there's nothing that pisses me off more than seeing a white kid wearing oversized jeans he could fit three of himself in attempting to imitate a dance that even if he was successful in doing, wouldn't exactly be an example of decent dancing skills.

I don't exactly blame people when they express their distaste for rap music, considering the music and people associated with it. It's no surprise after hearing the same phrase repeated over and over to the same repetitive beat. Thankfully however, not all rap is like this. In 1991, Tupac Shakur released his debut album 2Pacalypse Now, an extremely political album focusing on numerous subjects such as teenage pregnancy, racism, and police brutality. The lyrics are some of the most sincere I have ever heard. Tupac was a true rap artist. His lyrics were a message, and he didn't created meaningless songs for the sole purpose of getting an ignorant youth to become obsessed with them. To be honest, I'm disgusted by people who listen to music for the image they believe it gives them, which is something I see a lot of today.

      I was just talking about this yesterday - rappers of the past were much more talented and deserved more of a place in society than those today. Today's rap lacks class and a message... it's like they have run out of things to say and try to instead add unusual effects to the songs to make them stick out.
