Re: HIP HOP
Well there are a lot of groups that use live muscians in their shows. I have no problem understanding the lyrics. If you don't like it fine, but a vast majority isn't "filthy" that is a misconception.
Your obviously uninformed, and that is fine, you don't have to like it.
Eyedea, for example, doesn't utter "filthy" words, more like abstract poetry about all sorts of problems.
Not picking on you, your entitled to your opinion, it's just not based in fact, to some degree. Sure some have lyrics that might offend, some might yell.
If all you heard was wu-tang, or NWA, I can see that.
I am not going to try and correct your opinion, just saying that isn't entirely true.
Gangstarr, uses Louie armstrong, charlie mingus, charlie parker, ron carter basslines, etc. I consider that music, so do college professors.
If it's not for you, that's cool. We all like different things. I happen to love hip hop, and all the facets inside it.
