    Unfortunately, radio and record companies have co-opted rap music and really dumbed it down. These outlets really don't have any idea what true creativity is. Who is in charge with signing these rappers who really don't have any passion for the music and only want the "bling, bling"? If you want a true representation of what rap is listen to Divine Forces radio on KPFK 90.7 in L.A. You can listen to this show streaming or on-demand on the station's website.

    It is not the radio. Hip hop is not music and the radio is just transmitting noise.

  • Because they can't play the good stuff.

    And how is hip hop not music, Viencent G? What makes what you listen to music?

    Because people are losing their interests in rap and hiphop and rappers dont have anything else to rap about, its always the same thing hustling, money, chicks, cars and etc,.
