I liked rap/hip hop back in da old days with nwa and when ice cube and snoop first came along,i don't really like where it has gone today with dumbasses like g-unit among many others,i wish da old days would return for rap/hip hop so these new losers would be kicked out.

Most of the rap or "hip-hop" these days is just a bunch of bull****. All that the artists, if you can even call them that, rap about is drugs, sex, money, various clubs, gangs, or how awesome they are and how they get all the women.

Most of the "artists" make songs similar to:
"I'm up in the club,
and I'm the biggest stud."

The only legitimate "artist" in my book is Eminen because he is the only one I know that raps about things other than the aformentioned. At least he wraps about his honest feelings, and he has some good humor to boot.

Besides that, most of the "artists" wrap about how the system and the white man have put them down and how life is so bad in the ghetto. In reality, however, they themselves have become part of the system and have fallen into "The Man's" trap of money. And no matter what they say, they are no longer part of the "hood." How many hip-hop artists do you know that have donated money to their grade-schools, improved their original neighborhoods, or have promoted peace between gangs? The number is depressing, given the power, influence, and potential of most artists. Instead they glorify gang violence and drugs and deprecate women. Thus, the vicious legacy of gang violence and drugs continues into the next generation of black kids growing up in less than perfect circumstances.

The irony of the whole situation is that the artists and their gang-like images are the biggest negative impact upon the impressionable young generation, rather than racism and growing up in the "ghetto."

Old School rap
At least they had something to rap about other then beoches, Hoes, riding, pimpin, rolleys, and poppin foos

We enjoyed it when you had both lyrics and a phat beat...now it is beats with crappy lyrics...There are a few that shine, but not that many

Old School stuff definetly.
Today's rap is too comercial to my taste and i just go with the beat becouse the lyrics are missing. Eminem well he first two albums were great but the rest is ****.

I couldn't agree more :)

But I must say I prefer metal, or dutch/italian dance music. I just can't stand MTV and the commercial radio stations anymore....
There are some good hard dance remixes which got samples from rap songs, they kick butt :D

I'm more into old skool rap myself. I just don't like the new stuff. It annoys me when they play mostly that on the only good radio station in my area (which also plays Dance/House/Trance music, which is what I usually listen to).
