Well in that case, any rural area with a white population of atleast 95-99%.

Point still stands. Notice I said least likely compared to Suburbs and Urban areas.

Anywhere except the eastern panhandle of West Virginia, Southwest Virginia, and Eastern Kentucky. Western North Carolina. Those are good pics.

Nearly all of this post is false.

All depends on where in Georgia, i live in Rabun County,Ga and thankfully i never hear that crap. I have lived here for 2 years and heard it maybe 2 times the entire time. One of the advantages i guess.

This thread is hilarious, somebody actually wants to move to avoid a genre of music ! Just grow a thicker skin.

The OP has a very good point.
I live in an area of Boston where I can be in the back of my house, inside, and still feel the bass of some low rider's stereo as it goes by.
Other times, when I am sitting in traffic, someone who is five cars ahead of me has their stereo on. I can't even hear the music, just the annoying, pounding bass. As if that weren't bad enough, it vibrates the license plate so it makes a rattling noise.
It should be illegal.
However, I feel the exact same way about loud motorcycles.

I'm just tired of hearing that thudding bass beat everywhere I go, as rap fans seem to think everyone else wants to listen to their music with them. If these rap fans would just show some respect for those of us who don't care for their style of music, I wouldn't even pose this question. Unfortunately, the current generation of teens and twentysomethings seems to think the rest of us want to listen to their pounding, intrusive bass beats. Where is a good place to live for a person to live who just doesn't enjoy this style of music?
So you are going to move to avoid rap music? I must say that is a first. Your thesis is flawed anyway.

You make a good point, but what you should be asking is this: Should there be stricter laws regarding noise in your neighborhood? What about public places, such as gas stations and car washes? You'll oftentimes hear blaring radios all the time. Sometimes, it's not so much the genre itself, but the people who can't spend more than five minutes of their lives without listening to their music, as if they needed it on all the time.

And it's not just rap, though it often is. I've seen people blast rock-n-roll and even country, too, in public places.
