The majority of Rap and the entirety of Death Metal is not music. Pro=True, Con=False.
Debate Rounds (3)
I'm not saying it's all bad, I happen to like a few Rap songs:
Mr. Lonely by Akon
Don't Matter by Akon
Mr. Postman by Lil Wayne
So Sick by Ne-Yo
These songs I enjoy because there is extremely little (if any) profanity in them, and they teach, with the exception of Mr. Postman, life lessons. There is no "bitches", no "hoes", no "nigga/nigger", no "bust a cap", nothing in these songs but lax music and deep issues. Teach kids how to cope with difficult situations. Life, love, things like this. But 95% on my experience and the experience of others, it is the most disgusting garbage being said extremely quickly, this is essentially trying to be the "toughest", the "most gangster", when really, it just makes these individuals seem like the biggest tools.
Death Metal. Where to begin. Well, let me just say my biggest issue. Death Metal is always, literally, always in where a "singer" screams as loud as human(or inhuman)ly possible and somehow this passes as a music. We don't call white noise music, so the same thing with Death Metal, we do? Not to mention, Death Metal is violent in every song I have ever heard, every artist is acting satanic, chaotic, and overall unpleasant. To me, this is a very heated argument, not a music form.
I love rap. I don't mind metal, I love it when angry.
Why is it not music? Let's observe your justification...
Well f*ck you f*ckin w*nker. Swear words help emphasise points. They are just words and music is all about freedom of expression.
BY THE WAY, YOU LIKE LIL WAYNE YET HATE OTHER RAPPERS?! YOU LIKE LIL F*CKING WAYNE?! THE SLOWMO HOMO?! HAHAHAHAH listen to some Eminem, Tupac and Hopsin you tw@t.
2. Excuse me but much of rap is deep. What is shallow about sex? Seriously it is one of the most fundamental thing sin life. almost all music is about emotion and what is number one? Love... between a man and a woman and what is that to do with? Heterosexual lust. It's just sugarcoated in all other than rap. If anythign this generic pop sh*t that is replacing rap is bullsh*t I'd rather listen to the most horny shallow Snoop Dogg rap than bloody dubstep!
3. Just because you think it's garbage is grounds to hate it? Self-centred idiot who doens't understand that in art, it is in eye of the beholder (or ear in this case).
4. Your attack on metal is that it is screaming but this is the nature o metal music, so what? You don't like it? YOUR PROBLEM NOT METAL's! IDIOT!
Time to explain why I love both.
Rap is amazing. It is my favourite form of vocal music. IT is about expressing and rhyming and is so hard to do that very few can. With very few females in the genre who (like Nicki Minaj) happen to talk about dirty things too. The only difference is this: When men do it, it's wrong. Idiot. Just think what you're saying. EVERYONE IS DIRTY MINDED (unless asexual) what is so wrong with being open about it ART AND MUSIC ARE ALL ABOUt FREEDOM OF F*CKING EXPRESSION!
Metal is also amazing because it expresses rae in its purest form. :)
Dude revise what art is and comebackyou judgemental mainstream lilwayne loving piece of sh*t.
oh dear I swore look at me I MUST BE HATED! OH MY LORDY LORD! haha f*cking pu55y.
Revise the purepose of art and reply to this b*tch.
Now for a freestyle:
You be stupid,
I don't think cupid,
Will hit you boy, you ugly,
Evne if you have money and held up a sign saying "f*ck me"
No chick, would toch that d*ck,
When they see that tiny piece of sh*t,
They be puking it makes them sick.
Whatever man jsut shut up. You are entitled to hate stuff but how dare you diss rap and metal?! IDIOT!
Every other musical form has some sort of inspiration behind it. The Blues are about hardship, Country is about a wide range of things, mostly morally-aligned issues, life and love, Jazz was devised to get you off your feet, dancing, and into a good mood, much like Swing. I've yet to see what Rap has represented other than self-glorification in the worst possible ways, as much of it has the effect of literally admitting one is a criminal. So, this is a form of "music" which amounts to Aiding and Abetting criminal activity. Hmm.
Much of a Rap song has virtually nothing in the way of lyrics, instead, words are used immediately after one another so long as they rhyme, there is no sense or reason. The fundamental difference between music, sound, and speech, is that music has speech synchronized with the instruments in every way but physically, music has reason, speech can either have reason or not, and sound is simply auditory. When you have a whole different language involved in Rap, which no nationality or race speaks to communicate with, how can there possibly be reason, and there cannot be reason when structure of the lyrics is replaced with tandem words as long as they rhyme. Therefore, it is not a music form, it is a form of speech with sounds thrown in. Rap is a lot like a poem. Neither has to make sense and not all of them become songs.
Death Metal is clearly, undeniably sound that is so overwhelmingly high in decibel as to become impossible to understand. There are no lyrics. What there is, is words being voiced in such a way as to relieve anger and break the sound barrier. The only thing separating Death Metal from other forms of Metal and other forms of actual music is the screaming. You can find the same music, not the same inclination to rupture an eardrum. Many musicians are famous for screaming. But not to make up a song entirely consistent of it.
Now let me teach my friend here how profanity doesn't make a meaningful retort.
"Now it's just you and me, just judging by what I see, boy needs surgery, re-position his butt cheeks back in the rear seat, cause obviously they're in the wrong place when he raps, son didn't mama ever tell you you don't use your face to crap?
He can try to aggravate me, ain't gonna work for an insignificant flea, boy got an "art form" that makes me have heartburn, I've got a deck of 52 and they're all in spades, he don't seem to realize he's gonna get played, he says I don't get his style, you're friggin' right, you call yourself "tight" when you're loose as a jellyfish, make a wish cause I'm about to win this fight like Rapper's Delight, I think I'm dealing with a child who may be senile, not in his right mind.
You're outsmarted, outclassed, I'm about to beat your ***, I do it to wannabe punks all the time, my net worth is diamonds in rhyme while yours is measured in pennies and dimes, it's about time I laid down the line, let's go buddy I don't hear you say nothing, what's your trade school fool, you a part-time mime?"
Did you just say... Wait did you jsut seriously mention the idea that... Holy sh*t you are going down if you really think that "Much of a Rap song has virtually nothing in the way of lyrics" and "here cannot be reason when structure of the lyrics is replaced with tandem words as long as they rhyme." HAHAHAHAHA OH MY LORD DO you know what the heck POETRY is about?!
YOUR RAP at the last two paragraphs SHOW THAT YOU think rap has lyrical value what a f*cking GENIIIIIIIIIIIIUUUUUUUUSSSSS?!
Okay my friend, let me take you through rap's history since you totally conceded any attack on death metal. The fact that they choose to deliver their message in a manner which you happen to be too pu55y to appreciate due to OMG TOO HIGH DECIBEL COUNT is not sufficient to term the "entirety of Death Metal" as a non music-form.
The fact that you didn't even bother to go use google and read the site http://www.plasticlittleraps.com... me a lot about how much effort you put into researching around a topic before forming such an idiotic opinion on it.
"More than a century before rap exploded onto the American music scene, West African musicians were telling stories rhythmically, with just the beat of a drum for accompaniment. Meanwhile, folk artists from the Caribbean Islands were also telling stories in rhyme. Indeed, these singing poets from Africa and the Caribbean lay the foundation for modern-day American rap music.
Rapping essentially involves the speaking or chanting of rhyming lyrics, often set to a beat. The rhyming created by rappers is considered by many to be one of the most sophisticated styles of poetry. What’s more, these rhymes often address provocative subjects such as sex, violence and socio-political issues.
Rapping first gained popularity in the U.S. in the 1970s as a kind of street art, especially among African American teenagers. But it wasn’t until 1979, when the Sugarhill Gang released their breakaway hit, ‘Rapper’s Delight, that record producers took notice of this emerging musical genre. once they did, numerous rap acts, including Run-DMC and N.W.A., surfaced, and rap’s audience began to swell. It wasn’t just African American male rappers getting in on the act, either: By the 1980s, white rap bands such as the Beastie Boys and female rap bands such as Salt-n-Pepa were reaching the top of the charts.
By the 1990s, rap matured from an old-school-style – which was based on relatively simple lyrics – to a new-school-style, which was louder and included more complex lyrics. Artists such as The Notorious B.I.G., Snoop Dogg and Tupac ruled the charts during this time, as did Eminem – one of the most popular white rappers of all time.
Rap has stood the test of time and its popularity rages on with today’s artists such as 50 Cent, Ludacris and Jay-Z churning out hit after thought-provoking hit. The beat truly does go on."
I'm not much of a fan of Jay-Z so the last line ain't my thing but sir the history of rap was that of the urge to be poetic about topics that are tabbo and forbidden in toher forms of musical expression. I love sex, porn, money, women and want to hear other's views on it. Additionally, I love rappers like Hopsin, Eminem and Yupac who address internal stuggles insuch a poetic manner as I myself am a semi-pro poet in real life.
Time to just tear your sh*t apart with this comback rap.
Yo listen up Tes95,

Rap has rhythm, melody and lyrically it is superior to all other forms of music BECAUSE it prefers to speak as opposed to sing showing how LYRICALLY valued it is, not melodically as much. Just because the swearing and topics of the majority of rap happen to offend you and your Jewish view on life is not at all warrant for termign it non musical. Try going to a ghetto and seeing people chant it, dance to it, that sh*t keeps them going in such a poor state, reminds them of the few joys they have wihtout money; sex, drugs and the dream of getting rich. You have no at all disputed this point which I have made about it only being termed 'not music' by you because it happens to offend your personal view on life.
Death Metal is rage. If you are not an angry person you can't really appreciate it but how dare you disregard it at music? All death metal drummers, guitarists and singers have to train YEARS to even begin being that fast and brutal, it hurts physically to be that lous, fast ont he strings or hard on the drums it's why metal players are always muscular. Thanks and goodnight using subjective taste to tear apart other's subjective taste is like fighting fire with fire.
