  • Rap music, anyone?

    Good day, everyone!

    I know that some law enforcement officers may not like or listen to rap/hip-hop music. Today, I would like to find out from those LEOs that DO listen to hip-hop, what artists/groups do you listen to. Also, to any LEOs that may not like hip-hop, but may instead enjoy a specific artist/song, feel free to go nuts and list 'em! Thanks for your responses!

    I listen to BackSpin on sirius a lot (old school stuff), and every once in a while I'll listen to some new stuff. It looks kind of funny, this crazy white popo rollin through the ghetto listening to their music... but I'm fine with that.

      No rap for me

      I've been listening to alternative rock for the better part of twenty five years. This is a partial list of some of my favs...

      Red Hot Chili Peppers, Pearl Jam, Incubus, Oasis, Bush(Glycerine still rocks today) third eye blind, Green Day, Offspring, U2, Relient K, Switchfoot

        I don't normally listen to it. But recently a guy in my gym has been playing some (rather loudly too). So I started listening to the lyrics, and was surprized to learn that they were all Christian songs, but sung to a hip hop beat. I asked the guy and he told me that the group was called POD, which stands for Payment on Death (the idea that we all will have to pay for our sins upon meeting Jesus).

        The music was quite good, I must say.

          The only rap music I listen to is from the hoopdie car just prior to me stopping it.
          This profession is not for people looking for positive reinforcement from the public. Very often it can be a thankless job and you can't desire accolades, because those are not usually forthcoming. Just do your job to the best of your ability and live with the decisions you've made.

              I listened to it for years through jr. high, high school, and the better part of college, but as I have aged, it seems to be getting worse. I don't know if it is the actual artists or my taste in music.

              I will say that I listened to alot of the hip/hop rap that sung about the true times these artists faced in their lives/areas (NWA, Ice-T, Eazy-E, BDP, Public Enemy, etc).

              Nowadays the lyrics don't talk about anything but gold teeth, "ho's", and how big their wheels are. They're not speaking (or teaching) anyone anything. Our agency has had to deal with Young Buck on a few occasions, and pretty much everytime he wanted to cause a scene. He was a punk all the way, and he figured he could be a bigger one just because he has money. He was wrong.

                I used to listen to rap a lot, back in the day. But the hip hop that's out now doesn't quite appeal to me. I've allowed myself to listen to all types of music now (it's a long 8hrs alone in the car) and I'm not married to rap, like I was in my teens. But I will listen to Old school rap on satellite radio, once in a while.

                      I listen to it occasionally but usually rock like disturbed, linkin park, metallica, so on. The rap mainly just stuns people I had someone say he thought we weren't allowed to listen to it especially in the patrol car. I just laughed and took him to jail.

                        Yep, I listen...I do tend to gravitate to the slightly older stuff, but I'll proudly admit that you can catch me shaking my arse to the beat...I'm a hypocrit though...I don't allow my son to listen to it, but I'll slap my IPOD on and get moving. It's a good workout, too

                        I don't agree with your opinion, but I respect its straightforwardness in terms of wrongness.

                          Can't deny that the hooks and beats they come up with are enjoyable. A lot of the new rock out there is the same rehashed stuff we've heard a million times before. The only better, "newer" band imo is My Chemical Romance. Still a big fan of NIN, GNR, Nirvana, and Metallica though.

                          I can usually listen to a whole album from 50 or Eminem, maybe half of a Jay-Z, and there are tons of one hit wonders out there. Timbaland seems to have a sick ear for the stuff he's been producing too.

                            In my dept, you usually ride in pairs. So the protocol is that the senior officer has first choice listening to the radio. If two officers are set partners, then you just flip though the stations.

                            Of course FTO is another animal.

                            In the station gyms, it's whoever's there first. Just like the T.V. in the lunch rooms and gyms.

                              Eminem is my favorite rapper.
