Who here loves hip-hop and rap music? Personally, I LOVE it. It is misunderstood for dribble and senseless nonesence. But it is to people who rap about money, and grills, and ladies dancing wrong. Listen to a good music album my Lauren Hill, and the Fugees, and you will find out what rappers mean. And it isn't a black thing to like rap. I had someone ask me why I liked rap music. Yes I am black, but I love rock music almost just as much.

I love rap music, for it speaks to the listener in a way that can only be shown in music. Those words need a rhythm to me to stand out and be heard. The type of poetry is so misunderstood that no-one cares to listen about it as it slowly dies. It is a great form of music, thayt doesn't deserve to be disrespected by the likliness of stupid and un-important music.

What do you guys think?

Lauren Hill is a rapper. She raps about stuff in life. Her home, her life, her memories. go google her, and get it through your head that she is one of the greatest female rappers of all time.

Sage Francis' new album just dropped Tuesday, and it's freshness is guaranteed.

Oh, and it's called "Hiphop", not "Rap". Respect!

It's called R&B, and it sucks, theres no such thing as a good female rapper. The onlt thing Rap and R&B have in common is that there usually sung by black people.

You little....!
Rap Music yes is sang by black people most of the time, but Lauren Hill's music is sometimes R&B. Walk up to her in a rapping or freestyle contest and she will whip your butt like no tomorrow. I have my opinion and you have yours.

Yea, but I dont sing so of course she'll beat me, that doesn't really prove anything except that she can beat a 16 year old white kid in a rap battle, MAD PROPZ TO HER!!!

That's disrespectful. Get her to face a rapper like 50 Cent and she will demolish him as well. She is the best female freestlyer out there.

No, you're very confused.

"Rap", is what someone does over a Hiphop track. "Rap music" is a very outdated term only used now-a-days by televangelists and television news media.

Under the over-genre of "Pop" R&B incorporates quite a bit of Hiphop, just like almost every other musical genre since 1986. Don't get me wrong; these two certainly share a special & seemingly ever-increasing affinity but they are still very distinct genres of their own.

Rap music lives on. But it is slowly dieing everyday. Pokemonstrosity, I understand you. Rap Music and R&B are very different, but are common. R&B is to love, while Rap is to Life. Or so I think.

Yea, like her competition is any good? Seriously, not saying much that she can beat 50, put her up with NaS, she chokes, hardcore.

Rap is gone. I don't want to hear a song about throwing D's on a Cadallick, why some dude is hot, or how someone is ridin' dirty or any of that (pardon my english) ****. Bring back rappers that actually give stories and that will honestly touch some one with their "poetry" and I will start listening.

My brother is a rapper. He raps about important stuff in life like young childbirth, and growing up alone. Youll see him in stores one day, and you'll be amazed by his album. Even Defense well be amazed!

Meee, I love rap, it isn't senseless, take Eminem's "Stan" for example. But I have to say, Eminem's earlier songs had more message as it reflected his hard life. Now, it seems like he has forgotten his past..

Again, this is what Hiphop sounds like on TV & radio.

Get beyond that shallow exterior, and try some Mr.Lif, Sage Francis, Atmosphere, Aesop Rock, Deltron... if you want hiphop that isn't a complete mockery of itself.

And yet, we think she isn't a real rapper, Outlaw. She has raps of her life and her own problems, and the world. But the only good rap is the one that talks about the whores and hoes that we all have to f**k to be cool. Go sue, I'm telling it like it is.

That really just pissed me off, now.

Eh, I know a rapper. Official rapper, with an album I think. He raps similarly to all these other guys, but there's one difference. I heard one of his raps, and it had meaning, and importance. It must be the symbol of the American army or something.

What you fight for?
Love. Respect. Hate.
What you fight for?
Pride. Honor. Faith.
What you fight for?
Family. Friends. Belief.
What you fight for?
Justice. Humanity. Peace.
What you fight for?

Whatever you fight for, I never lose sight of my goal,
Cause I'm a general.
I'm a renegade.
Never put the pen away,
Til I see a better day.

No, mainstream rap is gay, it's all about old skool and underground, once Snoop sold out and went mainstream his songs wern't nearly as good, but Lauren Hill, I cant stand listining to female rappers, just not my style, For instance im listining to some NWA right now. "Hey mr. dopeman you think your slick, you sold crack to my sister and now shes sick, but if she happens to die because of your drug I'm putting in your culo a 38 slug" gotta love it. NaS's NY State of Mind is one of the best rap songs out there, no matter how old it is.

Exactly! I can't stand public or mainstream rap, it's all about the underground. Mainstream rap has been talkin about the same stuff for the last 10+ years: how they got money, hoes, cars, sayin they're "gangsters", and talkin about all this crap they don't really have or do. The underground stuff, people can actually relate to a lot of the songs. I can relate to the song "Afraid of Me" by Twiztid, cuz the world really is afraid of me. anywhere i go, I can see it in people's eyes, they're afraid.

I like some rap/hip hop, like Jay Z, Eminem, and Missy Elliott. I listened to The Fugees in the 90's when my mom liked their "Killing Me Softly" song.
oh and you guys are spelling her name wrong, it's Lauryn Hill, not Lauren.

I love all kinds of rap. I wish I could start an album, but I'm just not good enough. I listen to both the 'problem' rap and the 'n**ga n hoes' rap. They're all quite enjoyable, in different ways of course. I can't see why anyone would hate it. What's to hate? It's just music anyway.

I used to listen to rap, but it got overcommercialized and MTV made rap their new trademark. Now when I see some pathetic try-out rappers on music videos, I either laugh or cry at them. If someone has seen a video of the song This Is Why I'm Hot by Mims, you know what I mean by crying at rap. I can't explain in words how huge my hatred for the current known rappers is. That's mainly because I am deeply disturbed with materializing women and that gangstashityo has never really affected me.

I am quite fond of Tupac Shakur though, because I crave for lyrical complexity and he feeds my hunger for that in terms of rap. I have been recently deleting all other rappers from my computer, because I tend to skip the songs everytime they randomly come by.

I only like some rap. There is some rap in some of Linkin Park's old songs and i like Eminem but besides that thats it. I don't like alot of rap and hip-hop just because of the lyrics. I like the beat and all but uggh the stupid lyrics about the money, the cars, the girls, it all gets so annoying.
