    I don't listen to the radio station that only plays rap (even "oldie" ganagsta rap), I listen to the station that play a variety of stuff: hip hop, r&b, pop, techno, techno...And what I have been noticing is that they are playing more house music, then hip hop...

    Most of the hip hop now is about a dance...The artist make a silly song and dance to go with it and thats it...Most of the rap artist are here today gone tomorrow...

    FWIW, the station here in Miami that only plays hip hop and r&b is not doing so well...

    Soulja Boy is punchline, a joke, that's why a lot of people know about him...Noone take his lyrics or what he says serious, most can't understand what he says...

    I live in the gangsta capital of the US and much of what I continue to be subjected to is gangsta rap that puts down the police and encourages, even glorifies, self-destructive behavior. Perhaps these are "oldies."

    If you listen to radio stations that play this stuff, you are supporting the people who make and distribute it. The radio stations pay to broadcast it, and the advertising fees are determined by audience size and demographics.

    I grew up listening to it, the gangsta rap of the early and mid 90's, it's my generation's rock n roll, the devil's music...

    Techno and House will eventually take over for hip hop, I'd rather listen to DJ Tiesto, Paul Van Dyk, or Kaskade then most of the rap thats out today...The 90's pop and house are also a lot better then the rap thats out today...

    As far as buying cd's and stuff, most of the people who buy them a suburban kids...I can't remember the last time I bought a hip hop cd, or song from i tunes...


    I do listen to them on youtube and radio though...

    Yes, I would. I have started threads about athletes and celebrity entertainers who got arrested.

    In view of the fact that rap (especially hip-hop) glorifies and encourages the gangster lifestyle and encourages the killing of police officers, and several rap "artists" have been killed by other gangsters, I find it particularly fitting that that rap "artists" are arrested.

    I also find it appalling that law-enforcement officers help fund such a genre.

    DAL,

    I would argue that "language" encompasses more than a mere couple of words. In addition to the words themselves, one must consider the meaning and the meaning is often defined by the audience. There is an evolution to language and meaning oftentimes must be discerned by the time, place and audience. The language of rap (hiphop, whatever) is not directed toward persons over a certain age or even from a certain demographic necessarily.

    About whether it is or isn't music...again, your personal opinion. Many people do find it pleasing and regardless of what you or I think constitutes what, our opinions do not dictate what is or isn't music outside the rhelm of our own little worlds.
    I used to get mad when people spouted off nonsense about rap not being music, and how the artists aren't intelligent, because I am a fan of it enough to be able to name many, many, examples of rap artists who are brilliant and their MUSIC comes off as such.

    But then I came to the realization that I feel the same way as DAL, only about country.

    My question is, you don't like the "music", why do you feel the need to inform us of a rapper being arrested? Would you have started a thread if the lead singer from Styx got arrested?

    It sounds like you have issue with a song, but you made a generalization of a whole genre of music. It's just not true as not all hip hop is about women and that that is, is not all demeaning. Do you find the irony of you debating music that you don't listen to nor could your repertoire of understanding be all that extensive.
    I did not say that all hip-hop songs are demeaning to women. I said that the language used in hip-hop is demeaning.

    I don't listen to hip-hop, but I canot escape being exposed to it. I also don't consider it music ("the science or art of incorporating pleasing, expressive, or intelligible combinations of vocal or instrumental tones into a composition having definite structure and continuity").
