Top Ten Reasons to Hate RapToptenPizza Rap is a terrible genre of music, and really should be removed. Barely any of them have any raping ability they sing about the same things. It's sad.
From swagfags like Lil Wayne, and douches like Kanye West, and girls who sold their body, Nicki Minaj it's rare for there to be a good rap song. And if that isn't good enough, they wreck my faverote pop artists songs!
The Top Ten
Rap lyrics are very vulgar!
That is a generalization and an inaccurate one too. I don't ever hate things without exploring them complexly and giving them a fair chance. I gave rap a fair chance and I ended up loving certain niches of it. You can be uninterested in rap, or not feel like exploring it, but don't reign hatred over something you don't know anything about. I believe rap surfaced as a byproduct of living in difficult places and situations, so its rough, uncensored and blunt. Sometimes, that's refreshing. - keycha1n
Yep this takes the cake
I hate rap so much. I'm so glad there are some people who agree with me. Rap is gross, just unneeded profanity.18 Comments
Take Kanye West as an example and you need nothing more.
Nicki Minaj is a dramatic brat, Lil Wayne is an idiot, Kayne West is a racist. - ToptenPizza
Haha. Never mind Axl Rose or Liam Gallagher two rock icons who would start fights on stage. Two excellent songwriters who let their egos and terrible personalities destroy their career. Rock stars are no different from rappers lol.
Some have good personalities, others, not so much... - Therandom3 Comments
Not every rapper uses Autotune - jameshoward
All rappers suck
Listening to rap, I might as well be listening to dubstep with a person instead of a computer. - ToptenPizza
Not all do. 2Pac, Eminem, Biggie, Jay-Z, Nas, Kendrick Lamar, J. Cole, and countless others don't. Also Eminem is the most popular rapper and never autotunes. So I think you just know Lil Wayne and Nicki Minaj and the bad side of Kanye and that's it (there is even a good side of Kanye) - venomouskillingmachine4 Comments
Poetry - RoseWeasley
This is the definitive reason
It's basically a rhythmless poem with a beat in the background
But it's actually in a rap voice or something, then it has to be fast (Lil Wayne or Kodak Black or crap rappers like that don't but Eminem and 2Pac do). And then you have to rhyme it. - venomouskillingmachine7 Comments
The whole genre should be called Sampling - Jeffar
An example is Anaconda is recycled from baby got back. A chimp would realise the similarity - ToptenPizza
They aren't creative. Real musicians, who have real talent write their own songs and actually sing them. Therefore, they are the ones who deserve the big money
It's called sampling. It's used in rock, pop, country, and every other music genre as well. - venomouskillingmachine3 Comments
Open your minds and explore the world of rap further... Honestly most everything on the radio is trash, why base your opinions of rap off of what they play there? - keycha1n
Listen to Kendrick Lamar and tell me that all rap is meaningless.
Listen to Eminem and tell that to me again
Well, this could be said for all songs if you really think about it. - Therandom2 Comments
Even Soulja Boy opened the door for many more stupid rap dances like the Quan, Whip, Crank The soul boy, and Nae Nae. UGH! Even other pop artists like The Weeknd, Adele, The Wanted, Ariana Grande, Britney Spears, and Justin Timberlake are way better!
Yup, no question, except maybe did some drugs
Most become famous for appearance. Thanks to this generation
3 Rap music videos? Two too many.
Each one is a variation of the other.
Bling, biatches and booty. People say it is unique. It lost its uniqueness on the first video.
It is monotonous, boring has no message and is quite simply shocking.
White lines it isn't. - Jeffar
And I am quoting my 26 year old. - Jeffar
It's naked women running around while the rapper does a porn shot with them. - ToptenPizza

This is so annoying. How many Mariah Carey songs were basically ruined because of rappers? Same with Christina and Beyonce.
It's so annoying! Whenever there is a pop song I love, there is this rap part which ruins the flow of the song! For example:
No Broken Hearts-Bebe Rexha
And these are just some of the songs that I like that rap has ruined! There are so many others! I hate rap!
Maybe metalheads wouldn't hate us so much if they turned on the radio, found a catchy pop song with an artist who can sing well and the song is pretty touching, without some idiot jumping in doing a stupid dance while rapping stupid lyrics that have little to do with the song. - ToptenPizza
Implying pop songs aren't already wrecked.
I don't enjoy a song with violent and sexual content, so I'm choosy with my rap. But I was surprised by the number of songs that are extremely meaningful and emotional from the rap world. A great example would be My Oh My by Macklemore and For Those Who Can't Speak, by Tenth Avenue North (if Christian rap is more approachable). - keycha1n
Macklemore doesn't make offensive songs. Listen to Wings or Same Love (an song supporting gay rights) - venomouskillingmachine
This is so true.
If I wanted to listen to rap, I would get my mate to read poetry and roll around a tin box with marbles in it.
If I wanted to listen to music, I would put Dream Theater on. - Jeffar
Black Sabbath is music.
I agree with you 100 percent - Princesslove
I second this!2 Comments
My ass. Go look over at the UK's grime scene, then tell me that Eminem is the only good rapper.
That's not true - jameshoward
He's good, but definitely not the ONLY good one. Just look up a list of rappers and listen to someone that people say is lyrical and stuff and then you'll change your mind. - venomouskillingmachine4 Comments
Not all of them - jameshoward
I'm pretty sure there are more rock stars addicted to drugs than rappers. You guys talk like ozzy ozborne, Kurt cobain, Jimi Hendrix, John Lennon, David Bowie, Elton John, Mick Jagger, Eric Clapton, and Elvis Presley weren't all drug addicts. Drugs are used by many people in many different genres, placing them all into rap is pretty ignorant.
Some of them are, but so are lots of rock-musicians.
Its obvious, listen to their lyrics! - ToptenPizza3 Comments
Yes it's annoying I like melodies not beats. If I must be annoyed with a beat then at least give me melodic singing, not some self indulgent crap from guys who are full of themselves that does not sing but talks like they are at an auction, with the most annoying thug like voices. I hate country music as well so it's not about race.
There is only some of the clean version of albums but most of them don't have clean version they the explicit version of the album
I can't stand listening to rap
They just say meaning words fast1 Comment
Don't forget they're homophobic too
Not all rappers are like that. - jameshoward
This is why I don't like most rappers, I like some of them.
Some rappers just say it like a normal word to try to rhyme. - venomouskillingmachine3 Comments
A few of them do, because it's theor style. How does that relate to the music.
Girls dress slutty, boys dress--wait, they don't dress at all. - ToptenPizza

So true but in reality, they are all cowards. - Princesslove

All the popular kids love it at my school and I ask why to myself and just say that there low life people
The fanbase doesn't mean a single thing about how good it is - venomouskillingmachine
I have the utmost respect for many genres I don't like like Jazz. Even Metal is hard to my ears but Rap...sorry I just can't...
Listen to some country. All they sing about are trucks, girls, and beer.
I agree, it sounds like garbage. However there are a few rappers that sing about things other than that, such as Dead and Gone by T.I. That's about the only rap song I like.
Fact. A two year old can rap because that's how simple it is and takes no form of skill. - Princesslove
No it's not that it's just they mumble too fast and make the lyrics slurred
Just plain garbage music man
Just please listen to good kid maad city...
It all has the same message, same overly auto- tuned voices and in general, they all just sound the same
Same nonsense - Princesslove
I hate children
Wannabe gangsters who know nothing about music, writing or nearly anything at all, and who rap about drugs, hoes, hustling, cars, bling bling and dollars aren't a valid culture. Rap as it is presented in the media is a big joke. It takes no effort and little talent to make. It has no values. To think that it is associated with blacks more than blues or jazz? Are you kidding me or are you just racist? - Kricket
Rappers do NOT combat police brutality. Police brutality doesn't exist in the United States of America. Rappers who get arrested fall into their situation by breaking the law.
This is really only true because rappers combatted police brutality and were arrested for next to no reason.
After the 2016 and 2017 XXL freshman class there were more wack rappers on that list because of these lists
At nighttime all I hear is the BOOM BOOM (swear words) BOOM BOOM etc and it kept me awake all night when I used to live in the hood.
