Who said it wasn't music? I said they aren't musicians. And rapping isn't singing. It's just talking. Singers are actually musicians.

Mayweather was payed millions to pose in a "black face" Coogi sweater. Millions of dollars that will help feed and support his family and now poor people are trying to vilify him for doing it when Gucci, Coogi, and H&M have an umbrella that is so wide that most people don't know that a "boycott" of their products would also mean a boycott of other companies who they break bread with.

Just more social media virtue signaling.

Dude if you make music for a living your a musician by definition. Some are good and some are bad but that's subjective to the listener. You don't like rap obviously so you think it's bad but they're still musicians. Just not good ones according to you.

Rap is rhythmic, and is therefore music. It doesn't have to be singing to be music.

It doesn't have to have melody to be music - or else drumming isn't music either.

All the people I've ever met who say rap isn't music... can't rap.

Dressed like absolute morons, who even listens to there trash music

Most of the presenting was 100% cringe, which is a shame cause the rising stars and 3 point shootout was actually entertaining

What are you fukking stupid? You literally quoted me saying I never said it wasn't music. All I know is black music trends the last 30 years are shit. Where is that motown, soul, funk music? Now they all want to have ridiculous grills in their mouth while they "rap" over some beats they stole from real musicians. Where is the next Sam Cooke? The next Chilites? Fukk this rap shit.

eminem has a vocab catalog, ryhme schemes, and creativity that dwarf past legendary orators & writers like shakespeare, orwell or twain. Go listen to relapse and have a beer.

you're talking about mumble rappers but same can be said of the gay emo whiny shit you listen to to be edgy.

sam cooke??
