Honestly, I like some rap music, but most of it is garbage made by people who think they're all that, and need to improve their image by singing songs about how good or pimpin' they are.

But right now, good rap music is dead.

This is not a debate...

Also, I refuse to answer the question. It's ridiculous to say you hate a genre.

for the most part I don't give a crap about genre

but I can't stand obnoxious douchebags with far too great a sense of unwarranted self-importance

this group just happens to have a lot of overlap with rap artists

There's, what, one or two rap songs I can stand?

It's really annoying when someone has all their windows down and is playing rap music really loud.

NOT EVERYONE WANTS TO HEAR IT

While I'm not the biggest fan, I will say I actively listen to it. But in recent times it really has kind of fallen.

I generally dislike rap music not because of "offensive lyrics" or because "it's commercialised", but purely because it doesn't sound appealing to me. The repetitive beats and mumbled lyrics could be high art for all I care, it just doesn't sound good to me. For similar reasons, I also dislike a good deal of classical music - the way it sounds just doesn't appeal.

What I dislike even more than rap, however, is smarmy adolescents with their "rap is crap without the c amirite?" bullshit, and even worse than that is the homophobia/racism/sexism brigades. I don't care if rappers are singing about slappin' hoes and lynchin' fags, just grow a spine and turn off the damn radio if you're that offended.

It's ok, I guess. Sometimes it's kinda pointless and stupid.

"Pointless"? How can music have or not have a point?

It's like any other form of art. There's always someone who argues that it doesn't have a point.

Art doesn't need a point. Anyone who says so is an idiot.

I thought we as a society evolved past shallow generalizations and stereotypes. Apparently not.
