Rap - no, it doesn't start with a C!

Recommended Posts

Just an observation, but if the OP is so into Rap, and how good it is, why feel the need to defend it?  Its simply another music genre. We all have likes and dislikes, its what makes the world go round.

Well I guess because it is one of those genres that  comes in for a lot of bashing, especially from older classic rock fans, not necessarily here but in many other music forums  it does.. IMO on BC the general bias is towards classic rock while threads on funk, dance/electronica and rap are generally few and short lived.

Interesting, with the lyrics being in French (and therefore not understanding them) you get a really great illustration of the rhythmic qualities of the way they are delivered.

I was once informed that rap was particularly suited to the French language because “All the syllables are the same length”, this may be horse poo but the person who told me was heavily into French rap.

It works well in French, much better than in UK English. I'm a big fan of classic 80s-90s US hip hop but IMO UK  rap/Grime sucks big time

I was going to point out that this was a huge generalisation but then I can’t think of one UK rap/grime artist that I like, it’s difficult enough to find any rap or hip hop free of racism or homophobia but then you could say that of life/society I suppose...

Thread revival because of the love being shown on the Brits thread for Dave, and also because I've heard this stunner a few times recently.]

We have a number of tenants who claim to be Rappers....they don't have anything to say that hasn't been said many times before...in fact they steal whole lines from existing tunes claiming them as their own.

IMO Rap lost it's way long ago...

Seems like some folk can't cope with two positive threads about rap at the same time. Guess I revived this at the wrong moment.

😂  Perhaps you should have added the phrase

'and only people that agree with me are allowed to post, or I'll get shirty'

Personally I think rap tends to divide people along generational lines.

My parents can't stand it, they still seem to see it as some some of unmusical upstart fad that will eventually fade away to be replaced by 'real music'.

Where as for me growing up in the 80s, it's always been part of the mainstream and there have been rap/hip hop/whatever albums in my music collection since I was a child.
