    I object to the Rolls Royce Phantom being used. People like him are the complete opposite of who should own a car like that.

    I'm not even talking about the video necessarily. I fail to see whole someone can listen to it and think "yea this is good music."

    It's Soulja Boy - terrible nonsense is to be expected! I'd start ranting about how people like him are giving 'real' hip hop artists (and I don't mean 50 Cent and Flo-Rida) a bad name, but I'll be typing until my fingers bleed...

    The only time I've ever heard Soulja Boy and thought 'this isn't terrible' was when Travis Barker remixed Crank That with meaty drums and some guitar.

    this. i never understood exactly when music became a disposable product to be marketed.

    edit: ever heard stanky legg? i heard that once and i was messed up for days..it was a total mindfark knowing that there are starving musicians out there but people like this enjoy success

    I feel sooooooooo old. Hell, I am sooooooooooooo old. I remember music.

    I remember when rap would never, EVER be allowed to co-exist with bluegrass, rock, or country on the public airwaves. Hell, I fondly remember bubblegum music and even the "best" rapers efforts cannot compare to "Yummy Yummy Yummy" by the 1910 Fruitgum Company.

    There is no good rap, it is largely violence, bragging about bling, and no musicality. It is horrifically bad poetry set to a canned electronic crap music track. I hope some real musicians at least, worked on the music. When they can't make it as criminals, they decide to enter the music business.

    That said, Eminem appeals to me for some reason. Go figure.

    I have lots of music by some of the greatest musicians that ever laid down tracks. Many of my favorites are black musicians that were screwed by a largely white controlled business. So I know what Americans of African Decent are capable of creating. Unfortunately, all (most, some?) black "Musicians" want to do is rap. My guess is, they think they can have all that great stuff bad music can give them. With most rappers, it is my guess that they see dollars and don't give a crap about the eighth-notes and how one should put them in proper order.

    Not all black people like rap, I am guessing. Many blacks hate the shit, I'm hoping.

    One cracker's racist opinion typed while listening to Little Richard.

    And by the way, lots of crappy country, rock, and a few horrific bluegrass bands out there to be sure. Crap is crap, but rap seems to be forced into the mainstream and made acceptable.

    Then along came the Internet. I will die long before I can discover the great music and bands that will never make it. The Internet gives unknowns a chance to find their place. We need to promote those acts that show promise so they will make more real music. We need to buy the music so they do not starve.

    Great stuff is out there folks, so do not dispare. Perhaps rap will one day go away and I know where my off button is should it thrive.

    I think we need more music education in the public schools. We need to fight rap with information. Teach kids to appreciate music and what separates the wheat from the chaff. Teach them why Renee Fleming can rightfully be called a singer and rappers must never be called singers. Don't teach that rap is bad; rather, teach what makes great music and they will largely come to that conclusion on their own.

    I think I agree. When my Bluegrass CD goes Quadruple Triple Platinium, I am headed to the Veron dealership.
