There is no music in rap? Gosh, I'm trying to be polite but really shut up & please tell me how the whole United States is declining because of rap music.


Rap isn't the culture HIP-HOP is.

its a rather vague question, and its nearly impossible to associate a certain type of music to a geographical location... The only thing that I see you "alluding" to is wanting to avoid an area that contains a large "specific" demographic of rap listeners. Yet you have your disclaimer. Its like me saying.. "I really would not want to live anywhere with trucks that sit high...is there a place where trucks dont have large tires and sit high??" Lol

I find rap annoying, and I find the desire if its' fans to play it so that everyone else is forced to listen to be pretty harsh. I'm not interested in hearing rap defended. I'm interested in not having to hear itThe bass beat sounds like a drunken elephantIf you want to defend rap, find a thread that for rap fans

I'm not defending it, I'm just letting you know how dumb you look.

And how are people ''FORCING'' you to listen to it, my mother ignores it. I ignore country music it's easy.

The key demographic element is age. Under 30 years old. I don't give a damn if rap fans are white or black. I simply don't like their loud, obnoxious bass beat and filthy lyrics that they insist on everyone hearing. Most are under 30, and many are white. Very few folks over 30 like rap, especially the gangster type. We grew up before it existed. Maybe we want to enjoy the music we grew up with instead of having it rudely interrupted by some kid's bass beat that sounds like a drunken elephant. Heavy metal fans in the early 90's didn't inflict their music on older adults at a catastrophic volume, so why should these rap heads get away with torturing everyone? If you're gonna defend rap, post on a thread for rap fans

Move to the most affluent areas. These are places that value peace and tranquility and don't tolerate that crap.

You do know that the organization of percussion was the first ever man made music. Therefore, it's the element of music which has the most profound effect on humans. Studies have shown that parts of the brain related to repetition and motor skill fire off when one hears a time signature. So, music with predominant percussion(Hip Hop, Rock) tends to feel more natural than music without regular percussion.

But you don't though. Because you don't know any thing about music.
