Rap and Hip-Hop

I've been enjoying rap since Rapper's Delight (In Texas the accent is on first syllable in De-light). John K. seems to think it sucks which is confusing to me since he always has great taste in music. Oh well, you please some of the people all the time and jerk the rest off.

I must say, I've always found it baffling when someone craps on an entire genre (rap and country are usually the poor victims).

That's funny, I was living in Texas when I heard rap for the first time (Run-DMC). It seemed like it was happening on the other side of the world. I spent the rest of that day in true Texas style; I had a "Coke" (Pepsi) and laughed at a gigantic thunderstorm.

Don't worry about what John says, Rapper's Delight, Run-DMC, and Kurtis Blow were all great pioneers of good music.

I agree with you Jim. There's some good Hip-Hop out there. Though I will say this, most of the great stuff doesn't come on the radio. Maybe John just heard some Crap-Hop "with my money and bitches and platium"--I don't like that kind of Hip-Hop, I like the stuff with meaning to it. But anyway, as we both know, John changes his mind all the time on subjects. I believe I heard he didn't like Tex Avery at some point.

Oh, I started posting new stuff on my blog if you get the chance to check it out.

The thing I always found hilarious about John's disdain for rap is how the forced rhyming drives him nuts, when that's often the very thing that makes it creative - cartoony, in fact. Taking an idea that's impossible to express in an OED-approved rhyming couplet and twisting and squeezing words until they fit is the musical equivalent of one of those old Fleischer Studios gags where somebody insists on walking all the way from one place to another in a perfectly straight line, contorting their body into shapes that won't touch an obstacle instead of simply walking around it. You know the ones I mean. It's pretty hard to describe in words - hence the straight-to-board writing they did.
