Hip hop is great, the beat's are amazing while these underground rappers are taking it to the next level with DJ's. If u really want to have fun try freestyling with ur Friends, becomes very entertianing. Not all hip hop is about women bashing....it just depends on what artist u listen to. For example listening to ludacris, you r going to hear a lot of women bashing lyircs.

All these rappers these days do is disrespect women and glamorise drugs and violence.

I'm not a massive hip hop fan but I do like a little bit and my favourite CD of all time is Mos Def's "Black On Both Sides", also MC's like KRS One, Rakim, Chuck D, Masta Ace from back in the late 80s, early 90s. There's still good hip hop around but you won't hear the good conscious stuff on the radio - just the bling bling gangsta tracks...

There are thousands upon thousands of hip hop groups out there. But only a score on the radio. So i understand how people think that the art itself has changed, because the media (radio/video/printpress) offers a skewed view. And the fans support it. so the industry fosters "harmful" lyrics and images. but hip hop hasnt changed at all.
peace

Well, SOUTHERN - I was a teen in the 80's and witnessed the "birth" if you will of LL COOL J, RUN DMC, the BEASTIE BOYS....and have been a fan ever since. I can say that LL was and remains my only "celebrity crush".... that is one sexy man! A lot of it is rude, but you can turn the channel or not buy it for sure. In my house - we listen to it all: rock; classic rock; R&B; hip hop; blues; jazz; gospel; top 40, etc. My favorite is R&B - favorite R&B song: House is Not a Home (Luter's version...).

I love the rap and hip-hop phenomenon. Unfortunately, I am a bit to young to have witnessed it's birth in the 80's. But I did catch the end of it and have been a listener ever since. Currently I am loving the new Eminem, but I am always partial to Dre, Snoop, Easy, Pac, and Cube.

Hip Hop use to be who was ORIGINAL!!!!. Everything now is so commercial. I'm forced to listen to "Underground Artist" to get the REAL HIP HOP. Black Eye Peas, The Roots, Mos Def,

I think they need to stop singing about women being objects to use and throw away. We aren't all bitches and hoes.
