As Elizabeth Barrett Browning once said, “Let me count the reasons why”. The lyrics rhyme, but it is not what I would call music, as I only hear noise while the song goes on blah, blah, blah. Gang bangers demeaning women calling them bitches and whores, but the kids who walk around with their pants hanging off their butt’s, all like the swearing. The more times the “F” bomb is dropped, the more popular the song becomes. The lyrics are pure garbage and even David Peel and the Fugs are able to write better stuff. Any idiot could write a song using a repetitive bass rhythm while avoiding the use of any real music in it. The emphasis on rhymes becomes tedious, it’s a drag that gets mechanical and mind numbing for me very quickly. Just about every rap song has the same beat and they all seem to sound the same to me. Some of the videos are fun and I do like that song from the Wedding Singer ‘Rappers Delight’.
