i look at gangsta rap like this:
in comedy, it takes a LOT more talent to tell a good clean joke than a dirty one.likewise, it’s easy to make a song about base things. it’s hard to make a song about higher things. rap doesn’t use the higher senses. it’s gutter music.
it’s rhyme scheme uses the simplest form of rhyme in the english language, a rhyming word at the end of EACH line. it is much harder to write a rhyme per every other line.
there is gospel, soul, blues, jazz ,and ragtime if i need to hear true African American art. my ears won’t miss gutter rap.
finally, what possible talent could it take to run a turntable? DJs are kidding themselves.even scratching is not a refined rhythmic ability.
are we so lost that we now consider DJs musicians? DJs are no more musicians than taking a crap on the sidewalk is a painting.my two cents.
