21 Stupid Dances Invented by Rappers

Now watch me whip, now watch me nae nae. Another unoriginal song invented by a one hit wonder. - NikoX

Real rappers don't have dance moves. - Rambles

Dabbing too, and twerking, which is so annoying, my brother loves to do it. - Lucretia

The Soulja Boy-Soulja Boy
The Dougie-Cali Swag District
The John Wall-Troop 41
The Shmoney Dance-Bobby Shmurda

I guess the only way to get people to buy your crap is to do some dumb gimmick in order to attract more people.

Seriously? Where's your talent? You should focus on the rapping and the music. Focus on your talent instead of dancing!

22 Hip Hop Feuds
23 Glorification of Violence

Not much really needs to be said here. The fact that rappers are killing other rappers because of something they said in a rhyme is ludicrous.

50 Cent became known because he was shot up, scarred, and lived to tell about it. It's a sad thing that we think more of him for this than we do for the doctor who toiled through years of schooling, earned the right to be called a surgeon, and used his education and skill to save yet another person's life.

In some lyrics they spread their hatred of rival gangs like bloods and crips even killing them. Do you think children and teens should be listening to threes awful lyrics?

Worse than Profanity, Drugs and Alcohol, this influences and covers and causes them all, Violence through Alcohol and Drugs, and Profanity influencing Violence. SCREW VIOLENCE, IT IS AGGRESIVE AND BAD INFLUENCE! - marlonacott

The is the most inaccurate list I have ever read

24 Diss Tracks

Why drama? - NikoX

Some, few I guess, but still, makes sense. Suhtadit by Slincraze, Sanat Ei Tehny Tätä Laulua by Asa, Go To Sleep by Slincraze and Kaks Lakii by Avain.

25 Rappers Using Stupid Slang

How is slang stupid

26 Sampling

It's one thing to cover someone else's song. It's another to steal bits and pieces and try to pass them off as your own. But honestly, this might be one of the more entertaining parts of listening to most rap music. It's like a game. Try to figure out what song that hook, baseline, or chorus originally came from.

Sampling can be used in some pretty creative, often times genius, ways. Better than plagiarism. - WonkeyDude98

I think sampling's a positive thing in music. It's just a way of saying not all beats are gonna be 100% original. So some beats are gonna have to be sampled anyway.

You guys need to listen to some DJ Shadow. - Rambles

36 Terrible Rappers Having Decent Beats to Their Songs

Maybe that's why people keep buying their stuff.

That's sort of the reason I listen to it. - Popsicles

Honestly, I can tolerate people like Lil Jon or T-Pain who fall under this. There's a time and place for everything, including these kinds of rappers. - WonkeyDude98

37 Lil Wayne and Nicki Minaj

Neither of them are even close to the worst of their genre, and Lil Wayne was an album away from being one of the greatest...until Rebirth. - WonkeyDude98

These people are pop stars not Hip Hop artists. - Rambles

Wayne is dope though

love them

39 The Attitude

The stuff they say and they way people in rap songs sing would make an elementary choir teacher go insane. Speaking like a mentally-challenged ape doesn't make you sound cool. You just sound like a dumb ass. Their attitude is far from kid-friendly, yet I hear 12-year-olds listening to this meaningless, mindless, and pointless, brainwashing. The attitude of these songs make me feel like killing myself. The attitude it unpleasant, annoying, and dull.

I hate the stupid ratchet "language" and its disrespect for English grammar. Example: You be/I be/We be/They be. The attitude is toxic.

40 Glorification of Incarceration

It does make sense that a culture that glamorizes violence and the gangster way would also idolize what is it to be behind bars. It's like your orange jumpsuit of courage.

And before you argue that rap does not romanticize being in prison, consider that many believe the sagging fashion made popular by hip-hop artists originates from the prison system where prison uniforms are often too large and belts are not allowed.
