That can be said about just about any genre of music - some people just like to play their music loud. This morning I was on the highway and an old Patti Labelle song came on so I turned it up (so it could drown out my bad singing). I somehow doubt anyone I passed by heard it and said "God, that makes me hate R&B music."

Besides if the person playing the rap music is blasting their music how are they going to hear your Beethoven?

That seems to be what we're headed towards...I can't walk into a public space now without hearing ten iPhone headsets blaring...so , of course, I'm thinking of buying my own just to drown theirs out.

bubbles, bubbles, bubbles

What they don't realize is that not ALL rap and hip hop talk about those things: love, struggling to make it and be somebody, earning respect, mouring someone (i.e. diddy's tribute to notorious B.I.G. & big pun's tribute) anyone's opinion is greatly appreciated, including people that dislike rap. HOWEVER, please give me a reason that hasn't already been said .... Also, rapping requires much talent. To those who think rapping requires no talent at all, let's see you try! It requires much thought, writing structure, flow, and excellent lyricism. See don't let guys like Soulja Boy fool you into thinking rap requires no such talent at all. Those guys are NOT rappers. They are entertainers. There's a difference between a true rapper and a entertainer.

at least soulja boy making his own music not too many rappers are doing that and his music isnt all that violent so thats a plus. i cant stand ppl who hate on soulja boy just cause he making money, is popular and does not sound like ur favorite rapper, he does what he does if you dont like it why listen why complain theres music i dont like im not gonna sit there and complain about it im gonna listen to what i like.. soulja boy making his money

however no one can come with a legit reason why they dislike rap/hip hop all these things they come up with i guarantee you they watch in movies,tv shows, magazines, etc HH is entertainment

i wish i can remember a piece skyzoo said about people who think hip hop is dead that'll make you think!

like phonte of little brother said dope beats dope rhymes cause HH aint that hard. and forget P diddy if anyone killed HH is was that non rapping bastard with his gimmicks and scamming of good artist

thats ur opinion doesnt mean its correct....you should stay indoors.. how do you figure what people would say if someone was playing beethoven? thats just what you do and your trying to turn it around in a what if situation

rap has roots in earlier american black music, its funny people may not like rap because of the way wordplay comes out not the actual words used

I could care less how webster's dictionary or anyone else defines "music". I don't consider it to be music. I like all kinds, except rap, hip-hop, and most heavy metal. Classic rock, bluegrass, blues and old country are my favorite. Yes, I'm white, but the black music of the '60s and '70s (we called it soul music then), is also some of my favorite of all time. I attended a couple of James Brown concerts back in the 60's before he was really cool with white folks. Me and my friend were probably the only two white people there.

Rap is not music to me. Your opinion may differ, and that's fine too. But I absolutely would rather red hot eye pokers gouge my eyes out than to be subjected to it for very long.

i tried t listen a few times, but most of the time 1) i can't relate to the ghetto lifestyle and 2) so much of what's said is such bull, all i can do is roll my eyes the entire time.

I'm not going thur all 77 pages....

So why do we HAVE to like it?

It's gets on my nerves after about 2 minutes...

You don't have to like what I listen to and I don't have to like what you listen too.
How boring would it be if everyone liked the same stuff.

Now enough of the BS and let everyone have their own opinions!

"thats ur opinion doesnt mean its correct..."

It is neither correct nor incorrect; all is opinion.
