Why were 291 responses removed about Rap?


I do not care for rap.  It is not music.  I abhor unbridled censorship.  Why were 291 posts systematically removed,  then the post deleted by moderators?   I did have a serious reply, followed by two tamer ones. This is not about me.

Who wrote that definition? Not a person with much of the view.

Sorry, but U.S.A. rap is a minority in the world of rap these days. Why are people so scared to have something "theirs" enjoyed and built-upon by others? One would think there would be some pride in that.

Thank goodness it developed that way. Otherwise millercarbon might actually be correct. Like this, there is rap that mentions no Uzi, no names for women, or whoever, like Cardi B does. I guess, the best that teacher can hope for is that the student becomes better than that teacher.

Or, should we consider rap being a facsimile?

In Quebec we call this "fac similé" : rap....Not "rhyming music"....No more than blues is called "black club singing "....

I think rap exist around the world now....It is a "genre" not a black thing, like jazz is.....

If not, wrote a letter to each rapper on the planet , they dont know that their music is not rap but a " fac simile"...

😁😁😁😁😁😊😊😊😊


I apologize for my remark..... I dont know what i do in this thread....

My best to all.....
"In the world of "Rhyming Music" that imitates "Rap" we can have anything."

There is a moment when a person discovers that everything has been influenced by something. Depending of how narrow-viewed a person is, some may even say that everything is a copy of something. Rap included. Copying African rhythms, Vienesse techniques, sampling songs by others. A cocktail, not the ground zero.
lol these threads are full of old boomers who I would expect to act exactly like they are acting - sucks that being into hifi means dealing with folks like these sitting on old money and privilege and their 100K systems talking about things they have not spent an ounce of effort learning about

I can guarantee the majority of boomers here don't own $100 K systems. Mine is comprised of DIY, vintage, and some newer gear, for hardly any money, although it sounds like it worth much more. 

My one and only problem with rap, has zero to do with cultural, lyrical, or other none music related attributes. 

I only tend to listen to music that has the following attributes: very high level of musicianship, complexity, broad range of emotion conveyed, (usually) long form structure, boundary pushing. So far, none of the rap I have ever heard (and I've heard a lot, past and present) has any of those attributes, except for maybe boundary pushing. But that in itself is nothing to me without some or all of those other attributes.  

I am style agnostic, as long the music has the previous mentioned musical attributes. 

Find me rap in odd time signatures, with jazz fusion or prog level musicianship, with a broad range of emotional content conveyed in the music, and I'm all F'n ears!
