    I personally think that rap music has just as much "trash" as every other kind of music. It has crossed into the pop genre just like country has and so a lot of country has become "trash" as well. That said, I think even the trash of both are good for pure entertainment. I personally think those who condemn rap the most (not you in case you thought that btw) are the ones who take it a lot more seriously than the listeners and the rappers themselves.

    Can't stand country either.

    Gimmie some of that old time rock'n'roll music.

    In any case, "Hellrazor" by Tupac is the quintessential song that people hate based on a surface evaluation. It's pretty violent and he spends a lot of the song appearing to glorify violence (many people would stop listening here and call him a trash thug), but there's also a contradiction in the whole song where he's clearly aware that the violence he participates in is wasteful and juvenile. It's pretty much a story of how he acquired his mentality and its negative effects.

    2PAC - HELLRAZOR LYRICS

    Another one is "One Love" by Nas. It's written as a letters to his friends in jail - it's essentially a description of life in his neighborhood along with criticism of the gang banger life coupled with a desire to enter it.

    NAS LYRICS - One Love
    I would say "Dear Mama" is the better tupac song.

    Are you sure that's not just any entertainer?

    To each his own, but I would say most of his songs are quality.

    Most of the Rock I listen to is profoundly timeless. Thoughtful lyrics, innovative musical arrangements, and DRUMS like rolling thunder...

    Very few songs about drinking, cheating, etc...

    Sounds just like rap to me.

    It's okay. I still listen to some of it.
