So your saying the best type of music is music that would be fit for prom?
Anyway, many of the more popular rappers of today bring a lot of energy on stage and are a stage presence. People wouldn't go to see eminem in concert if all they did was watch him stand there and rap.
It's one thing to dislike hip hop but it's another thing to say it's not music. Just because hip hop is different from other genres of music doesn't mean it's not music. That's just being narrow minded.
