    I probably would, but I can't type about something I'm not listening to.

    It would take hours and hours to make it right!

    It would be a work in progress. It's not just about posting songs that no-one will listen to, it's about appreciating it, with words.

    And I'm stuck on a certain song. So I'm not going to stop listening to it, right now. Or the next few hours.

    Well, if you should choose to do so, or remember, I'll be looking forward to what you have to post.

    I'm strictly Old School. The original old school (before the original New School became old by the passage of time).
    Back when it was all about parties, light competition and then message.
    To me, it all began to go down when it became all about bragging on one's self, and from there, you saw it go downhill into violence, and then just glorifying the gangsta culture instead of telling us to avoid it. Then, many of the same rappers complained about all the violence that had taken over the industry!

    Here's my take on the history of rap:

    Here's my take on the history of rap:
    Rap: Where Did We Go Wrong
    I didn't read your link (I probably will later; it looks interesting ), but for me it all seemed to go downhill when gangsta rap became popular.

    I've seen critics (or "critics" ) blame rap groups like N.W.A. and people like Ice-T as perpetrators of a violent culture, and they're right to a degree. But the way I see it is those rappers were products of a violent and impoverished environment. Many urban areas were extremely hostile and unhealthy, especially after the crack epidemic in the late 80s, so I don't necessarily think it's fair to attribute all the blame to just the rappers.

    Gangsta rap was never meant for mainstream society. It was a subgenre directed at a very specific target audience (typically black kids growing up in rough areas who could relate on a very tangible level to the struggles in many of those lyrics). Record labels caught onto the popularity of gangsta rap from the high sales in urban areas and basically exploited it for profit.

    I don't watch MTV anymore, let alone television (BET is another cesspool :rolli. I can't stomach it. The "rap" they show on that channel now is mind-numbing, to say the least, not to mention their shows . Those networks glorify rappers while defaming them by helping them disrespect themselves. I really don't know where rap is going to go from here, but, unfortunately, it has already made its mark and is becoming the cultural image of what black people are and value today.

    That is sad.
