Why Rap Music is Awesome

Well a lot of people especially TopTenners like me, WonkeyDude98 and SwagFlicks like rap. Here's a list of reasons why Rap is awesome.

The Top Ten

1 It's creative

Other than the songs about sex Rap had got songs to dance to, diss tracks, songs about people, etc. yea - AlphaQ

Don't forget genre bending into rap metal, rap rock, illbient, etc. - SwagFlicks

2 Not all rap songs are about sex or cash

Well like I said it's creative and can be a diss track, song about a person, motivational song or even a song just to dance to. - AlphaQ

3 The "worst" artist isn't a rapper

Justin Bieber isn't the worst but I said worst because people think he's the worst. - AlphaQ

Silento is a rapper an awful one - christangrant

Tyga Is A Rapper? - Du

Yes. Unfortunately he is. I know how you feel bro. Tyga is one of the worst artists ever. - AlphaQ

4 You can curse if you want

It's better to use a curse word than to hurt a person anyway.

Finally! Someone who actually thinks cursing isn't so bad. Thanks dude. - AlphaQ

Black metal, especially the satanic stuff, a lot of death metal, some glam metal, occasionally thrash metal, and a bunch of pop, not to mention rock (nu metal). - Lucretia

5 The "worst" song is not a rap song

Stimulated Is A Rap Song? - Du

Yes it's torture. I don't know why all my friends like it. I'm the only one in my class who hates it. - AlphaQ

Um Watch Me by Silento is the worst song of all time (To me) and it's a rap dance song so... I have to disagree with this one - christangrant

Baby is considered the worst and that's why I put worst in inverted commas.

Besides I can name 10 songs worse than Baby - AlphaQ

6 Some of the best songs are rap songs

Lose Yourself, Stan, Changes and much more are considered the best. Not to mention Straight Outta Compton. - AlphaQ

Depends on the person... - Lucretia

Eminem. c: - LemonComputer

7 The beat of rap music is usually good

The beats of rap music are usually really good. They have cool beats and even some of the worse ones have good beats. Like Safe Sex Pay Checks. It's not a good song but the beats are awesome. - AlphaQ

8 Anyone can rap

I don't mean every single person can rap. I know you need talent (I just added it) but I basically meant that you can be any race, any religion and age to rap. Do you understand what I mean now? - AlphaQ

What I meant was anyone race, religion and age can rap. - AlphaQ

For singing any one can do it but not well. I suppose the same can apply to rapping. - Lucretia

About the only music genre you just need to be a nerd to do. - LemonComputer

9 A lot of rappers are successful

Eminem, Jay Z and Kanye West are probably richer than Taylor Swift, Katy Perry and Beyoncé - AlphaQ

10 Dr Dre is better than Led Zeppelin

What does one has to do with other? - zxm

I enjoy Led Zeppelin a lot

Hmmm...I don't know who added this but I think it's kinda true. Dr Dre is technically a better than Led Zeppelin. Other than Led Zeppelin plagiarizing, Dr Dre makes much more money than Led Zeppelin does and is more successful. I'm not saying Led Zeppelin is bad. though he's mediocre he's not terrible. - AlphaQ

Whose Dr Dre? Led Zeppelin is decent but they plaigarized a million songs. - Lucretia

He's a fantastic producer. Made several rap albums, signed Eminem who's also a brilliant producer. Without him, rap would be a lot different and not as good because he influenced some of the greatest rap artists. - AlphaQ

The Contenders

11 Rap usually doesn't offend anyone

Offense is not given, it is taken. - LemonComputer

I love rap but this one is kinda off considering the amount of rappers who call women bitches and hoes - Mcgillacuddy

12 Flourishes more underground than any other genre

Metal too! Especially the extremest, satanic kind, black metal. - Lucretia

Doomtree, Run The Jewels, MF DOOM, Aesop Rock, Death Grips, Open Mike Eagle, Sage Francis, B. Dolan, Uncommon Nasa, and so much more are just acts from this decade that not many people on this site know about, but are awesome all the same. - WonkeyDude98

13 You need skill and talent to rap

With other genres of music, you need to simply be lucky and have a good voice and looks. - LemonComputer

To make good music you need skill and talent. - Lucretia

14 Rap is overhated

I don't know, I mean a lot of people like it. - Lucretia

15 It's divisible
16 Most rappers have excellent flow
17 Rap is usually fun to listen to

Something I don't see myself finding out if its true... - Lucretia

18 Rap fans are usually nice people
19 Some rappers have nice personalities

Some. Then again, some metal musicians don't so... people are usually not good people really though. - Lucretia

20 Not always about sex, bitches, money, drugs, butts or strip clubs

MGK and Logic are good rappers who don't rap about that crap.
