Worst Things About Rap Music

Rap music is amazing in its influence and popularity. Far more than just a musical style, rap and the sub-genres of rap have created distinct cultures with specific expectations, status symbols, and norms.

But while some rap artists have worked to buck the trend, much of rap music seems to be heading down a scary path of intolerance, self-destruction, and violence. This list seeks to identify the worst things about those forms of rap music that do more harm to society than good.

What is a porn rap?

64 Crunk
65 It's Not Real Music

Not voting because anything on this list is accurate, because it's based on a slim minority of rap that becomes popular. Tell me: what is "real music"? - WonkeyDude98

It's more of a bunch of yelling. The problem is that there really is no structure to rap- it's just some guy yelling a bunch of slang that rhymes while synthesized sound bangs in the background(I have no problems with synthesizers, but it's just a 10 second audio loop in rap). People rush to rap's defense by claiming "it's good poetry," but is poetry a show of sexual violence, guns, cruelty, and greed? I don't think so.

There's no such thing as real music.

That is so true.
