    It sucks and makes no sense!

    Poorly written songs made by random people to make some easy money.

    Why did I know this was going to be in the music section already when I first read the announcement?

    Try to be less predictable next time.

    People talking to a beat...its a slight skill but still something that holds no real appeal to me (unless you count the Gorillaz who I really like)

    Anyone heard of "The Street" there's a boring group the lead singer just talks. I'm not shitting you at all. I've got an acoustic version from the Radio 1 Live Lounge and its the most boring song on there.

    It was good in the 80's/90's and even early 00's but its horrendous now. The British stuff is bad, just chavs shouting at each other.

    I don't listen to rap usually, but rap certainly doesn't suck. At least not all of it.

    Yea, Rap sucks.

    I do like 3OH!3 though. And Hollywood Undead, and Gorillaz. And Limp Bizkit btw.
    So, the more alternative rap groups/bands are pretty good imo.

    It's just the anoying gangster rap that sucks.

    I prefer "light" rap. Not this crap where you don't know what the hell the guy is talking about.

    No, but if this is a thread of gross generalizations, then who am I to ruin his fun?

    Of course rap sucks. It always will. As long as people today remain piggish and borderline whores, rap will still be popular. But that doesn't mean it doesn't suck. I mean, just look at Twilight.

    Never cared for rap myself. Seems like all it is is blah-blah-blah and BOOOM-BOOOM-BOOOM. The bass is what annoys me the most. It's like just because someone likes rap, they figure it's fine to annoy everyone else with the unnatural bass and play it way too loud. Makes me feel like grabbing a baseball bat and bashing some inconsiderate bastard's heads.

    I couldn't even begin to think how hard I'd laugh listening to some douche with a brit accent rapping. Black rappers in the US are gay enough. They are all stupid with the exception of a few (maybe Jay-Z, Eminem, a few others).

    Most beats are repetitive and stupid. I think they're are trying to bring back synths, AKA, some ghetto producer who just got garage band after seeing an Apple ad now trying to "ro' like a big shot".
