There is no such thing as good rap,at least shit is good for fertilizer rap is not good for anything

This coming from a bloke that lives
in a retirement village, doesn't
surprise me one little bit Jad.
Your parents probably felt the same
way about metal & rock & roll back
in your day. Not everyone on this
forum is in their 70's let alone 40 y.o.

Neil Diamond, who retired from performing five years ago because of Parkinsons, just had a Broadway show dedicated to him open ~ on opening night he did this:

Not at all mate as i said i like nearly all music.It is interesting you mention my parents but both of my parents enjoyed any music that i played and when i used to drive my mother around when she was in her 80's she always asked me to play "That nice German group" when i was driving (It was Rammstein)
Musical taste is always up to the listener but every teenager and people in their 20s and 30s that i know dislike rap and would rather listen to other styles.Any way as i say it is always up to the listener as to what is worth listening to

Fair play @jadtiger I can dig it!
Apolagies if I came off snide ...
That wasn't my intention at all
As you mentioned, music is very
subjective. I know a lot of people
that hate rap/hip-hop as well haha. each to their own, I like it all TBH but my preference has always been rap/hip-hop since I was a child (golden era in the 1990's.)
some of the crap that comes out
today I can't even defend though..
I don't think there is a genre of music
that is more controversial or has so
many sub-genres/rifts and gaps
in talent as rap & hip-hop music

No reason to apologise as i was not offended in any way.These days i am finding that the music coming out of Japan is as good as anything coming out elsewhere.If you like metal Lovebites are arguably the best metal band in the world these days (live performances) and easy to find on youtube.Wagakki Band and Band Maid are two others worth listening to and neither are metal

Im young and I think its garbage too.
All they do is call each other the "N" word, flash their money, talk about women like they are trash and fantasize about killing people. Awesome!!
Really not any musicality to what they are doing either.

Once the folk claimed all rock music was devil worshipping, satanic noise pollution.

I always laugh at these claims.

Not all rap is gangsta rap lol.

It’s not 2003, gangsta rap isn’t even what charts these days.

Correct.

The way people talk about rap now is the way people talked about rock and metal in the past.

Goes in cycles.
Yep,

Rap and Hip/Hop has been around a long time and is contiguously evolving.

No musicality involved ?
A producer makes a beat using all types of instruments, sounds and samples.

Then the vocals are performed over it.

No different to a band making a song.

That’s not even mentioning jazz rap, rap/rock performers like Rage against the Machine etc.

To group it all as one genre is naive.

Incredibly.

A lot of the new big name artists are inspired by hip hop.

Post Malone, Ed Sheerhan, even Bieber.
Aerosmith, Guns N Roses and even Robbie Williams before them.

Then there's "hip hop" artists that cross genres.
Guys like Juice world, Lil Peep and Xxxtentaction (rest in peace to all of em)
These guys have elements of rock, grunge and even elements of metal to their sound.

The argument of "all they do is talk about money, cars and women and say the N word" is more redundant than ever.

I play guitar a lot and I love all sorts of music. I suppose rap isn't my favorite music but you guys made me think of all the rap music I love.

These are more cross over songs.

I remember none of my friends liked rap but I loved Eminem.
