    you just crack me up. do you think b/f you write? so, if these bands are sooo terrible, why do rap bands sample their music in their songs?

    I think you could get the same effect at a Raiders game and probably have more fun doing it!!

    Yea we always play a game. "Guess which car it's coming from". It's usually the guy driving the 10 year old $1800 Honda Civic with lights on the undercarraige, $1200 speakers and $2400 rims.

    thats another thing. Sample is code for "Stealing" cuz they cant even make beats. So not only can they not sing or play an instrument, but they cant even make beats, which is probably the only creative aspect (besides the 'poor mans poetry' which is lyrics about bitches and hoes) of it.

    I listened to rap almost my entire life and got tired of it, and grew out of it for the most part. But you can try and discredit me. lol ok.

    Kanye steals too.

    Kanye steals **** from overseas. Kanye stole a chorus from Alizee(french singer, my music knowledge spans many continents) - la isla bonita, in his song ' About an Angel'

    stop defending it. if you like it, ok. but dont defend it, you will come off sillylike.

    Ps- Alizee is hot

    i really didn't want to get into this man...but it's clear you have absolutely no idea what you're talking about.

    first off, i never brought Kanye into the mix. i personally don't care for mc's who's lyrics are primarily ghost written. College Dropout was HEAVILY sample based, i wouldn't even attempt to deny that.

    the fact is most successful producers in this industry have degrees in music theory, composition, etc. the fact that you paint them as people with no musicianship proves that you simply don't know what you're talking about. is the keyboard an instrument? because you won't be getting very far without a working knowledge of one.

    thats not even including the countless producers that play the piano, guitar, you name it...and incorporate it into their music, but let's put those guys aside.

    sampling will always exist in this community, always. but the majority of the sh!tty club bangers you're hearing on the radio are completely organic, primarily synth based with absolutely no sampled drum loops. i won't defend those at all though, it's f@cking pop music...they are VERY SIMPLE to make, but the majority are, at the very least, organic.

    as far as lyrics go, if you can't find artists that don't talk about drugs, guns, money, bitches, etc...you're simply not trying. i have about 30 years worth if care to get educated.

    well, i didnt say YOU brought up kanye, but check the thread. his name pops up a lot.

    I also didnt mention radio or pop. you guys keep bringing up the radio stuff. figure it out, man.

    but keep telling me i listen to the radio, and i listen to 'shiitty club bangers' ? ok. lol.

    no. wrong.

    as far as going out of your way to find rap music that isnt stereotypical, whats the point. thats the face that rap music has. its raps image. its rap.

    but you disagree, so its obvious i dont know what im talking about. good job. :roll:

    ok cool.

    i think you might've misunderstood my comment there...the "sh!tty club bangers" i was refering to were hip hop songs. i don't know what kind of music you listen to. i was trying to address your issue with sampling in hip hop.

    whats the point?

    the point is that you aren't familiar with it...so your blanket statements and broad genralizations make it sound like it doesn't exist. thats why you don't know what you're talking about...not because "i disagree with you".

    if you want to argue about raps image...hell, i leave this thread right now. i wouldn't touch that debate if there was prize money for the winner.

    It is not the image that makes me not listen.
    It is the fact that it is all so boring. Just the same thing over and over again. It fits right in with the short attention span of a lot of teens who buy it.
    Like it if you want but rap has played a big part in the dumbing down of America. Act like a drug dealer or gang banger, have no respect at all for women or even your self, drop any attempt at speaking English in a coherent manner and make wearing ridiculous jewelry your main goal in life.

    Don't have any talent? Just mumble over some one else's music and call it "sampling"
    It is like reading customized license plates... U B DA BMB CUZ I GIT WIT U F DA blah blah blah....

    Well I may not like Rap but I ain't gonna say anything bad cause I don't want anyone to pop a cap in my ***. lol I can see rap being like a lot of other music where the best stuff is the kind that the average person never hears. We just see the newbies trying to get famous by whearing their big bling and having 20 chicks behind them humping their pimped up ride. You feel sorry for those tramp's dads, where did they go wrong

    Nothing good has come out of the rap community since early Run-DMC and early Public Enemy. Now it is just guys talking shite to make up for their lack of stones.

    Now....if you want to hear some killer shite, go find a couple albums by CHRIS THOMAS KING. He played blues guitarist Tommy Johnson in "Oh Brother Where Art Thow".

    Go find 21st Century Blues From Da Hood and/or Dirty South Hip Hop Blues.

    The guy blends fabulously blues, hip hop and rock...and it is friggin amazing. Take a listen and tell me what you think. He can be found in the blues section of most music stores...at least decent ones.
