uh...real rap like will smith...you are on crack.

someone who says they like rap doesn't have to mean they like everything by everybody who falls under the widening umbrella of "rap"

rolling stone just gave the beastie boys new album 5 stars and it's worth every penny...even makes fun of metrosexual rappers like puffy.

DRM

"Digital Rights Management" - a broad umbrella term for software being pushed by MS and the MPAA and RIAA to prevent people from copying CDs or listening to some music (CD, mp3) unless you have the DRM software installed

Beastie Boys CD installs virus
New Beasties disc has DRM -- Fight! For your right! To cooo-oopy!
Beastie Boys 5 Boroughs DRM flak

There also was Houseparty in the early 1980s.  Never saw it, can't stand rap.

i think it's had a great influence.  Whereas hippies and punk rock were all about getting high and rebelling with your parents money, kid stoday idolize p diddy and think making money and working hard is cool.  the hip hop and r 'n' b stuff might not all be as good as the "old school" but it's may more listenable than the matchbox 20, dave mathews garbage they play in my gym.  You pray for R kElly or 50 cent there.

How can you generalize one form of music? Sure mainstream rap sucks, but you know what: so does mainstream rock. I just don't listen to either. And I don't listen to what MTV considers "punk" also. Punk and rap are both in the same boat, they've fallen prey to commercialization. But that's ok because both genres always stay true to the underground.

Like hardcore and real punk there's still a lot of cool underground rap, or hip-hop as I prefer to call it, that raps/sings about a lot of important social issues like poverty, police brutality, broken homes, AIDS. These are a lot of the same social issues punk and hardcore continues to sing about.

MTV or the media can label whatever they want, it's their freedom to do so. Hardcore and rap came about for the same reason, so kids from broken homes and bad neighborhoods could come together and sing/rap about their emotions instead of killing eachother.

True underground music will never die, it was made in the streets and it will stay in the streets forever.

Underground hip-hop!!  : -D

Random rappers/groups to check out:

Sage Francis, Atmosphere, Cannibal Ox, Sole, Jedi Mind Tricks, Saul Williams,  Aesop Rock, Gang Starr (early nineties stuff), A Tribe Called Quest, El-P, Buck65, Doseone, cLOUDDEAD, Deep Puddle Dynamics....

All of these rappers/poets talk about issues that are both very important and very personal.

Mainstream of everything is genrally bad. I'm still not a rap fan but respect the underground stuff. It's funny how a no-talent guy like P.Diddy is making more money and more attention in music than an actual real talented underground artist. The days where talent got popular by istelf are over. MAjority of people jsut want a clean little package so they can be like everyone else and not look "strange".

To the guy that started this thread, I think you'll have a blast reading this article I foudn the other day: http://www.angrypatrioticbastard.com/entMedia.html

Has anyone seen the commercials for that new "reality" show where two families swap moms for a week? White and black families switch moms and at one point the white mom tells the kids "I'm sorry guys, I can't handle rap music. It gives me a headache." and the daughter looks at her with her mouth hanging open like the woman just suggested that they cook & eat the family pet.
