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

No its not its about butts, sex, and drugs, stupid. Real music is about unique things like a family experience, personal things, and more. - WilliW00sh

You've probably only listened to the mainstream part, eh? That doesn't even make up 15% of the entire genre. - AlphaQ

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

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

2 The "worst" artist isn't a rapper

Well, Lil Wayne doesn't count as a rapper I guess.

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

3 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

4 Not all rap songs are about sex or cash

That's the equivalent of metal and satanism - yungstirjoey666

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

5 Some of the best songs are rap songs

Nah not the best just the ones that appeal to people who don't know what real, raw music is. - WilliW00sh

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

Haze of Interference, U, Stan, Lose Yourself, King Kunta... - DCfnaf

This should be in top 3."Lose yourself","Changes","Not Afraid","Dear Mama", Drop it like it's hot" and"Remember the name" are rap and they are in my top 30 favourite songs.-TheCoolGuy1

6 The "worst" song is not a rap song

Fack, "cough, cough" - TheDarkOne_221b

I don't know if Jocelyn Flores counts as rap.

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

7 A lot of rappers are successful

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

8 Rap usually doesn't offend anyone

Yeah if your white - WilliW00sh

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

9 Dr Dre is better than Led Zeppelin

MY voice is better than Dread Zipperlin - TheDarkOne_221b

Nah that's not true Ledeppelin was the pioneer of rock, and real, raw talent, not autotuned crap about drugs and sex, that derail or community and make kids want to be thugs. - WilliW00sh

What does one has to do with other? - zxm

I enjoy Led Zeppelin a lot

10 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

That means that you don't need talent then.


The Contenders

11 You need skill and talent to rap

So anyone can rap, but you still need talent and skills? - Userguy44

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

12 The beat of rap music is usually good

Yeah a stupid beat someone made with a computer by pressing buttons, not learning a real instrument that takes talent. - WilliW00sh

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

13 Rap fans are usually nice people
14 Rap is overhated
15 Flourishes more underground than any other genre
16 It's divisible
17 Most rappers have excellent flow
18 Rap is usually fun to listen to
19 Some rappers have nice personalities
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.
