Re: HIP HOP
Hip hop comes from funk. Funk is good drummer music.
Besides that, I am compelled by hip-hop because it is the only genre of music I have heard besides modern classical music that has the power to be truly frightening. Listen to the Marshall Mathers LP and tell me that 'Amityville' or 'Kim' doesn't move you in any way. Music communicates all emotions, and I've never heard real anger and frustration expressed more directly or sincerely. Listen to Immortal Technique. There is no theatre to it, no face paint or spikes. It's real.
