Hey we all know that Im as nuts for death metal as anyone has ever been on this board, but I like rap (well mostly the old rap from 80s-mid 90s). Its a nice thing to have to break up metal with, plus when it really pounds in your car thats nice too, like "Boyz in tha Hood" by Eazy-E that shit rattles my mirrors and windows.

Anyone can make a beat and flow to it with some practice, telling a white boy who's never rapped to make a good one isn't an example of its difficulty. It's harder to learn how to play an actual instrument.

Being that a keyboard/synthesizer is an instrument, I'd say it is hard to learn. Besides, theres so many hip hop groups who use drums, guitar, b**** etc in their songs.

Music doesn't need tons of talent for it too be good. But rap definetly does take talent.

04-28-2006, 12:57 AM
Every artist got to the top with talent. The only reason certain artists suck is because it's our opinion on what we think of them. Therefore, if a few people say they suck, then more people say they suck. Then you get shit like "Oh, they have no talent. It's all basic stuff, blah blah" - Well if it's so easy sounding to you, then why aren't you doing better and making a LIVING instead of posting here about how some artists suck? HUH? HUH?!?!?! What do you have to say about that?!?!?!?! That's right, bitch!!! BACK UP!!! I will cut you so bad, you're gonna wish I didn't cut you so bad!

EDIT:
Yeah! Can I get an "Amen?"
That's right! Clap for me, bitch!!

Just to clarify this.

How are you calling rap trendy? Have you SEEN rock bands since 2000 or have you even lived that long? You sound like a 5-year old. They're almost as trendy as rap or any other genre. Don't you watch your fucking MTV?

You really can't compare rock and rap because they're two different categories. If you don't like one of them, the you don't like it. You don't have to say shit about it to make yourself look foolish, such as your skank self. Coming from me, I like both genres. Both are different forms of art. Rock shows how several instruments can simultaneously play together and incorporate singing to it. Rap is poetry with a steady beat and is more for the lyrics itself than the instrumentals. Both focus on different aspects of music.

And cskate, I could say the same about rock. "People only listen to rock just because they want to look cool." - Does that offend you in any way? I mean shoot, I'd listen opera and classical music like Bach and Beethoven just to look cool too if I could.

You have just proved yourself a complete retard to this board with your close-minded posts. Your opinions are worthless and I'm sure everyone else can agree with me. You are indeed lucky that you have not been warned, because I know plenty of people who would have. So consider yourself lucky....skank.

And I guess practice isn't how you learn to play an instrument. But rapping takes lots of practice, you each song, you got too:

Have a good intro, chours, and beats and they have to rhyme and flow together perfectly. On an instrument theres something called a powerchord that sounds good on any string, and fret, in rap there is no such thing. It starts in your head and even then most of it isn't how you want it.

ryce
05-02-2006, 02:19 PM
I feel it's only necessary to mention this again....


Only the true rap fans stick with rap and enjoy rap for the right reasons. Many people say rap sucks because they fail to see the art in it. Emo/punk/rock music is entirely different because a lot of people focus on instrumentals and vocals simultaneously playing at once, while rap focuses more on the lyrics and the flow to the words. The only problem about some rap is that a lot of new rap fails to put intellect in their lyrics. Good rap to me, is well thought-out and appeals to everyone, and not just their hood or whatever. Great example....Immortal Technique. If you listen to his lyrics, you will realize how well thought-out his lyrics are.
