Top 10 Reasons Why Rap Music Should Stay

The Top Ten

1 It helps us understand how life is hard

I don't need songs to tell me how hard life is.

2 It's like other genres
3 It helps you express yourself

Rap is a form of self-expression which is fundamentally similar to poetry. You wouldn't guess that listening to Anaconda or any other C.Rap, but the origins and roots of rap mean that it should stay, and should not be given up on, even if the days of Tupac, Biggie and overall GOOD music are long gone and can only be relived through listening to their music.

4 It helps you focus
5 It has good songs
6 It helps you write better
7 It makes you smarter
8 It's not just about killing
9 It's just not talking about getting pregnant at a young age
10 It can give us ideas

It has helped us create Nu Metal and has paved way for a lot of bands. For better (Korn) or for worse (Limp Bizkit).

Some of the best Nu Metal bands I can think of are Korn, Slipknot, Disturbed, Evanescence, Papa Roach, Linkin Park (in the early 2000's), Demon Hunter, and Dope.
