    Could have been. I liked some Ghetto Boys stuff. It was a long time and many drugs ago.

    I guess what I listen to really is rubbish, shouldn't even be called music.

    well i think rap is the best because it brings out more creativity then other music. unlike rock or pop it takes much longer to right a rap song. also rap doesnt just bag on other people.... take tupac, all of his rap was based on his life. most poeple dont think that because some rap songs are about wemon and drugs. just think most rock songs are about the same thing. just listen very close.

    But most rock songs have good/decent tune to them. Rap is all about the lyrics.

    That makes it harder to make a rap song, because everyone listens to lyrics, not music. In pop and rock it's both music and lyrics.

    There's no such thing as rap music. Saying rap music is like saying sing music. you can rap in a rock song, just as you can sing in a rock song. Hip Hop is a genre where rap is prevelent, as is Grime, but neither of them are rap music.

    Though I am glad I live in a land where Hip Hop fans are a (granted sizable) minority.

    To each his own, but no rap for me. It's too empty for my taste.

    in case you're wondering what I listen to
