#beginquote# Rap itself is not music, but rather, social commentary, with music sampling in the background. Some of the ideas are of some value, but most of it is violent and hateful. Much of it is degrading to women, and other social groups who don't share the same mindset as the rappers. Rap is kind of a modern day version of the "beatnicks" of the 50's and 60's, but with much more rebellion, vulgarity, and hatred. I can classify it as neither music nor art. Even Frank Zappa wasn't as vile as some of these so called artists, one of which is "Eminem".I do not apologize for my opinion, because I find no social value other than reinforceing to my sons, that these ideas are an example of what is wrong in the world. I would recommend broadening musical horizons to those whose mainstay is rap. There is so much beautiful music in every genre to choose from. I am a fragment of my imagination #endquote#
