"that's a pretty elitist point of view" you say that like its necessarily a bad thing.



just because people don't care enough about music to spend as much time as we do reading

reviews and

looking for new music doesn't mean they don't enjoy it even if their enjoyment is more "shallow"

than mine.
no, but there is such a thing as unintelligent ignorant people, and they do listen

to music, and they do vastly outnumber intelligent informed people. And Group Think and the power of

money has more to do with popularity than any aspect of the music.



i would like to see you argue that
pretty simple, 99% of todays pop music (IE music

considered for the Grammys) is entirely narcissistic and is a complete rejection of traditional

american values like hard work, independence, responsibility, respect for elders etc. These

qualities come from the Judeo-Christian based/influenced Western culture, they inspire altruism,

todays pop music does precisely the opposite, it promotes narcissistic material selfishness.



And its no coincidence. Every single mainstream rap song today is about "fuck haters, get rich, fuck

haters, get rich". The music is literally hand chosen by people with interests in keeping people

materialistic and ignorant.

Lambs taught me I wasn't cool enough to listen to rap. I don't know where I'd be without him.

Decent point Guzzo but this isn't the movies, creativity has always been more important to music

than cinema.



Its not about themes in RAP Music, its about dope original lines that are still meaningful. Kendrick

either has meaningful lines that are unoriginal, or shit thats original and just bad (what am i

supposed to do when your dog has to say woof). He gets way too much credit for refining tried-and-

tested sounds, lyrics and messages into a sloppily-tied-together relatively-uneventful and moral-

less story (the album ends with autotone COMPTON COMPTON AINT NO CITY QUITE LIKE MINE... like what

was the point of any of the story? Sing About Me didn't have to be part of a bigger story and was

the only meaningful song.).



I really just can't believe this album is anything but another Interscope hip-pop album and the

entire story was just a clever gimmick to loosely tie together already-done pop music and pass it

off as original art.

music falls into one of two camps: you either like it, or you don't

establishing a numerical rating for art is absurd since it's almost always a changing perspective with
only few exceptions, and we have a word for that: classic

and classics don't need you to call them a classic to be a classic, they just are

Juice falls into two camps : Orange and Grapefruit

Establishing a nutritional rating for juice is absurd since it's almost always delicious with only a
few exceptions, and we have a word for that: Apple

And apple juice don't need no man.
