  • Is pop-rap any less hip hop than any other sub-genre?

    after hearing that R.A. and Rude Jude interview it got me kinda thinking. Why don't people have any respect for pop rap. Now don't get me wrong, im not advocating bad music. All im saying is that every genre has bar rappers, but we don't condemn the genre for it. RA said Hammer and rappers like him weren't legit i guess because... show more

All im saying is that every genre has bar rappers, but we don't condemn the genre for it. RA said Hammer and rappers like him weren't legit i guess because they weren't great rappers. I mean if a purpose of music is to have fun and dance doesn't pop rap just fit that criteria. Why would it be any less hip hop?

  • Has anyone else read the article on guru in XXL?

  • Is there really such a thing as a "mainstream" sound?

    This is from a question hell of us answered yesterday. Would you say there is a mainstream sound for rap, at least in terms of prosuction.

  • How much do you think the skill of picking a good beat factors into a rappers skill?

    I know rappers don't usually make the beats themselves but they do pick them and have to rhyme over them. Good beats can make any song better but bad ones can ruin an album. So do you think a rapper knowing what type of beat is hot or will fit their style is a skill to be considered or trivial.

  • What does an east coast rapper or sound like?

    What I mean is, a lot of people come on here and ask for regional rappers who sound like they are from ny. What does that even mean. I know production can vary from region to region but rapping? I think people just mean lyrical when they say that because there is still the stereotype that east coast rappers are supreme but is there any other reason?

  • Would you really consider Wu-tang gangsta rap?

    I mean i always called them hardcore but they don't really seem like gangsta rap. I only ask because a question earlier i saw some people call the Wu gangsta. I mean they are mafioso sometimes and they do depict some violent things but they're not really the gangsta rap type imo.

    I mean doesn't underground mean you are unknown or relativly obscure. If you have an underground rapper who is popular with a mass audience like teck n9ne, IT, etc. Doesn't that mean they aren't underground anymore
