    No it isn't. (And if you look at wikipedia, it disagree's with you. It's a disambiguation page, which I assume you can navigate, but the disambig page is the best place to point you considering how the top two links on there, which are really the only relevent ones, are both significant.) Anyway, there's a lot of bad rap, but some of the older stuff and even new is great. There's good stuff out there, such as Run DMC (It's tricky) and even new songs such as Deliverance.

    Technically you're right. But 90% of it is what I described. I have to admit that there are like one or two rap songs that are TOLERABLE. However, I hate rap.

    Rap is noise because its just talking. Techno can be anything, its an expression of anything you want. Rap is just people swearing and talking about being "gangsta".
    no dude, you're a moron. Listen to some underground hip-hop, some not-so-mainstream acts and you'll see what rap is really about. Same way with techno/electronic music. I love techno, acid, and trance - but the mainstream stuff is utter garbage. You really have to look a little deeper to find the gems.

    This whole line of reasoning is so funny. I guarantee, the most he would get out of it is, "You're right, that's a little better, but I would still never willingly listen to it."

    Well calling me a moron puts me off to anything you have to say. I'm still standing by, 90%(or more) is just noise, garbage, and the other little bit is only TOLERABLE.

    Oh, and by the way, I guarantee that he could care less "what rap is really about". He just doesn't want to listen to something that is going to drive him up the wall when he turns it on. (Disclaimer: I'm not saying that rap inherently drives (all) people up the wall. But it DEFINATELY drives SOME people up the wall).

    If you want noise, goto MySpace sign up for an account I garentee you that atleast a couple garage bands/groups/soloists will send you a message about listening to their music eventually, and you will be like wow this is utter garbage...

    I am hardcore into Rock/Metal, mostly power metal... but Bones, Thugs, and Harmony is a rap group with a couple good songs (Crossroads is my favorite rap song) I also listen to a fair amount of hybrid Rap Rock/Metal... if you have the patience to filter it, there is some good stuff in all genres even the ones that drive you up the walls

    If your words are true, and you've never heard them, you need to. As a matter of fact, you can find them on myspace.

    If you like 'em we gotta talk. I need to find more music like that.

    I wholeheartedly beleive that they are the truest form of Rap/Metal out there. Seriously, you gotta check 'em out. Ecspecially if you like music with a message.

    I'm standing by the same statement about techno. I know nothing about techno, you obviously know nothing about rap, so let's leave it at that.
