Top 10 Reasons Why Rap Music Sucks

The Top Ten

1 It embodies everything wrong with 2010s music

The thing about the hip-hop genre is that it has people who are lyrical geniuses to people who mumble about sex, drugs and murder and then autotune their voices. All sorts of extremes. I'm grateful that hip-hop is getting so much recognition in the 2010s though. Peak - tequila

You can listen to whatever genre you like, but y'all should really catch up on today's music. - Luckys

Songs really aren't NEARLY as good now as they were in the 70s and 80s. - KalloFox34

Mark these words, Rap’s popularity is going to die in the following 5 or 10 years.
