I hate rap music. I find it to be one of the most annoying form of music since Blue Grass Country and Western from the 1950s. I hate the videos where the singers ‘pooch’ their lips out like they’re trying to smell what is on the upper one, start slinging gangsta signs around and no one looks happy or like they are enjoying themselves. When did singing groups decide that they had to look pissed off with their music? I dislike the free verse rhymes, ain’t real happy with the ‘minority’ faux ‘ghetto’ faux ‘hand-me down’ faux ‘big sneaker’ faux ‘expensively casual’ faux ‘homey’ look they like to affect either.
Am I the only one? I REALLY, REALLY hate rap at 2:00 in the morning when some bugger drives by with his $2000 stereo system blasting it out of his $500 car and I can hear it a block before he drives by.
Anyone else feel this way? Gimme that good old rock’n roll! (Even disco.)
