Rap is alright and dubstep is awesome. They're two different things. And rap does take a lot of skill. Not all rappers read words off paper and have producers audio tune their voice,etc. Some rappers can say a bunch of random crap at 10000 words per minute.
Music: he science or art of ordering tones or sounds in succession, in combination, and in temporal relationships to produce a composition having unity and continuity
so dubsteb and rap is music as they have tones and sounds in succession, combination, etc. SO I SLAP YOU GOOD SIR.
Most hip hop music is just electronics anyways. The only part that is creative about it, or at least could be is the lyrics. Unfortunately, I have yet to be impressed by any hip hop artist except Lupe Fiasco. Maybe if there was actual singing involved with better subjects other then sex, drugs, and money maybe people would have more respect for it.
To be fair, I don't like any mainstream music except for classical music. Other than that most of the mainstream music today is demeaning to the human being. Most people don't understand how dangerous it is to expose yourself to any type of demeaning music ( hint hint... The effects it takes on your brain and psychological changes you may reap without even knowing it).
Metal and Screamo are great musical choices. They use melodies and instruments to express emotions. The only difference between metal and screamo, and other music, is that metal and screamo are portraying a different emotion than other genres.
You know, I bet a lot of the "social problems" ironically depicted in rap actually result from listening to rap. Besides, just listening to "social problems" in song is not doing any good; indeed, the people who listen to rap seem to be reveling in their social problems. If you want to solve something, put your time into doing something else than complaining about it and using your freedom of speech to spout immoral garbage.
;( Two of my favourite genres are put in the same category even though they are incredibly different and are at the top of the most hated music poll. ;( Rap is very meaningful depending on which artist you listen to (Look up the lyrics and meanings before thinking it's just fast talking with a beat) and with dubstep I recommend listening to Monstercat music before judging EDM.
