How can you even endure to listen to this crap? Do people actually like it or are they just listening to it because it's considered “cool“ ?

You bumped a post of you complaining btw. You probably like things that others could not comprehend. It’s ok that you don’t like it but it’s some poets in the rap game

What would be the reason to not like especially black rappers? :d
2019-02-07 16:17
A lot of black people (and white people) adopt a certain personality that I find extremely triggering. They talk in a super relaxed voice, they say "Why chu talkin' to ma girl ******?" They are disrespectful and usually do a lot of drugs, and are very open about it. Usually filled with piercings and tattoos. And they are generally very uneducated. It's a bit hard to explain, but think of the kind of people who would be in a gang. Why do people like to adopt that personality?

I would know if I am racist, wouldn't I? If I dislike someone because of their PERSONALITY, I might be a dick, but I'm not racist. Racism is disliking someone because of their RACE.

Eminem is washed up. all he does now is cry and ask for attention just because he's not getting as much attention as some of these rappers are
2019-02-07 16:51
still got better bars then all the other rappers though like cmon bro whats better, some little pleb saying gucci gang for a few minutes or eminem spitting bars for 6 minutes like on "the ringer"
2019-02-07 22:11
Eminem became a attention whore. He should just lay back like 50 cent and other rappers from his age . He trynna get attention by dissing Donald and all the other rapper.
2019-02-08 06:49
or maybe he doesnt like donald trump and what all those clowns have done to rap
2019-02-08 11:04
No one does.But he just wants clout.
2019-02-09 06:41

2019-02-09 10:25
Rap nowadays isn’t all about the bar you can drop, it’s about having a good beat and sounding melodically pleasing; something you can get hyped to. Obviously Eminem has better lyrics, but overall the song is trash (I’m talking about his new stuff)
2019-02-08 06:51
yeah but for me personally the beat doesnt have a huge effect (abut 20-30%) and the lyrics take a lot of skill rather then getting some producer to make a trashy trap beat
2019-02-08 07:32
Well that’s your opinion, and it also takes a lot of talent to make the beats for the most popular songs, most of the producers have a many many years of experience. the producers are under credited though
2019-02-08 07:34
yes very hard although random youtubers can do the same thing if not better
2019-02-08 07:40
haha source?
2019-02-08 07:46
Well for one the guy looks like he has experience. And also, that beat was extremely bare bones and wasn’t good at all. Go listen to some metro boomin beats in comparison
2019-02-08 17:01
still better than all of these new „rappers“
2019-02-08 07:37
Eminem fits the black stereotype more than most of the rapper.

To answer your question: Yes, some ppl listen to it because its 'cool' You are listening to the wrong stuff though. Heres something good
2019-02-07 16:22
I mean in way where people actually don‘t like it, but are still listening to it because it‘s considered „cool“. Is that still the case?

i'm prob not on the same demographic as most hltv cuz i don't know anyone that listens to rap cuz its "cool", not saying they don't exist but i don't get the fucking point of listening to smt just bcuz. Sometimes i'll hear bad music, specially when i'm trying to find new artists, but listening to smt just cuz its mainstream and popping its just sad

kinda generic lyrics and kadence, but not bad at all, most of these trap artists nowadays don't have half the brain needed to do smt half as good. Prob why so many people shy away from hip-hop

it depends on what you define as "crap". I dunno what exactly you're talking about but I can tell it's something along the lines of Lil Pump, 6ix9ine, etc. that's not rap. it's mumble rap. you have a great array of talented rappers who can actually rap, like J.I.D., J. Cole, Bas, Logic, Joey Bada$$, Denzel Curry, Kendrick Lamar, etc.
2019-02-07 16:54
Whats even the difference between mumble rap and „normal“ rap?
2019-02-07 17:42
The same difference that there's between the music you listen to and the music I listen to, the former is shit, the latter is good.

Because why would I want detailed information about a music genre which I don't like at all? Ofc I know the most famous ones in my region by their name (since it's almost impossible to not know them), but it's really the first time that I'm hearing about mumble rap.

When I'm asked about what music I listen to I never say rap since people assume that I'll be OK listening to Thugger, Pump and Ski Mask. But there is some great rap music, its just covered by thick layers of wannabe gangsta rappers, trap rappers & these wierdo singer-rapper-mumble self described "rockstar" rappers, I'm not about that.

thats for sure, like most music u need to discover better artists, cuz there is no point in listening to most mainstream bands/artists. Its the same with metal, and even with more mainstream rock bands, some suck, are generic and all sound the same, but when u find "real" artists then its def worth it

lots of modern rap is sadly pure trash.... I mostly enjoy story telling rap. It is like reading a story or watching a movie, but in lyrical form. That always appealed to me. Lots of people who make/listen to very technical music like metal or classical enjoy decent 90s-2000s rap.

Most of mainstream rap rn is garbage, that's true. And I can't stomach most of what people deep into hip-hop consider good enough. But there's still some unpolished gemstones out there, as far as I'm concerned. I don't listen to rap for the sake of it being rap - especially the kind that's trying to sound "cool" for coolness sake, not to mention the mumble coughing and lazy-ass trap puke bs. In fact, I ignore most rap, other than a variety of oldies, and very select few of the current stuff. Then again, that's just my opinion and based on my personal taste.

I think people only hear that because they think they will be ''modern'' people after hearing this shit. Only autists truly like that shit ''music''.

Yes. Kids usually realize this when they grow up...
2019-02-08 06:36
old school rap was great however all these new kids singing about bullshit things that ain't got nothing to do with hard times, growing up in tragic circumstances etc they just sing about their ho's & money and if its not about they they just make some shit up what nobody ever understands as the lyrics don't make sens....

Rap is the best genre in the world you’re just tripping tripping
2019-02-08 07:46
After 2010 rap is no longer in existence. Commercial rap is new trend which based on materialism that has no soul or motto.

2019-02-08 16:18
modern rap is created by the youth. it's underground and original. obviously record companies get involved later on, but that's always the case. I'm into rock, but I have respect for the new rap stuff that is going on, because I see it for what it is
