There is nothing wrong with not liking rap anymore
Make the step. Just say it outloud and you will feel better. Even if rap was the only thing you listened to between '85 and '95, and even if you can recite the lyrics to a million and one songs, if you don't like the rap that comes out today, then you might as well just say "I don't like rap".There is no point in saying "OH rap? Yeah I love rap music, well I mean except for a lot of shit coming out today, you know, except for a few people here and there, but mostly that old school golden era rap, etc etc etc" Why bother? No matter HOW devoted you were, no matter how hip hop you were, just let it go.I've done it, and its really pretty liberating. Take the HIPHOPNRNB station off your presets. It will just piss you off. Don't buy rap magazines and read the reviews, they will just get your hopes up.Stop wondering what exactly P-Diddy is famous for. Its like Paris Hilton... famous for being famous. Chew on that too long and your head will explode. Stop wondering what happened to busta rymes, or method man... stop waiting for that comeback album.Just say it: "I don't like rap." People say they don't like country music all the time, even if they dig old patsy cline and hank williams records.With people getting so worked up in the Primo thread.... I don't know. And yes, secretly I still crave some funky ass hip hop, something new, something that made me feel the way I did back then, but then I have to tell myself "too bad".otherwise you'll spend all your time arguing with kids that love new rap, and you will explode into a million peices. you will try to explain away stuff, and this and that, and guess what? its not worth it. its like your old uncle trying to explain to you that Wham! or Depeche Mode (or whatever) was totally gay back in the day. You didn't care. and kids now don't give 2 shits about what you think either. So make the step, old folks. Next time somebody asks you what kind of music you listen to, just leave that one off the list. Don't feel like a hypocrite for disowning rap after pledging allegience to it for so many years. You aren't. You've just grown up, and the only rap that is acceptable is kiddie rap. Grown folk rap barely exists, and thats ok. Eventually grown rappers will make grown rap for grown folks, and maybe it will be ok to say you like rap again. you could even say "i like grown folk rap". But until that day comes, just say you don't like it. Its OK!!!Who's with me?I DON'T LIKE RAP MUSIC.
