What do the Beatles talk about? Gay ass submarines. You got rappers out there doin poetry. Tellin useful stories instead of a bunch of bowl cut homos in a yellow submarine. Go listen to some Tupac, he talks about injustice and unfairness in america and that > a yellow submarine
You think they are talking about submarine. Wow u freaking suck at linking things together.
Beatles were in the 60s and 70s when drugs were huge and what the hell does a submarine look like? A pill.
Wow and its not like rock and rap have never ever talked about drugs before.
BTW geewiz when a rap artist can play 4-5 instruments then come back and talk to me about rock and rap balancing out.
Bob Dylan is the BEST songwriter EVER without a doubt.
Ok I've said this before and you knuckleheads won't pay attention so I'll say it again.
ROCK AND RAP BALANCE OUT.
Rock: relies on instrumental
Rap: relies on lyrics
Rock: controlled screaming
Rap: rhythmic talking
Rock: guitars and a drum set
Rap: bass and snares
Rock: can be serious (Let Me Die In My Footsteps)
Rap: can be serious (Changes)
Rock: can be retarded, fun stuff (Flaming Lips)
Rap: can be retarded, fun stuff (Young Jeezy)
Rock: can be an exhibition of talent (Hendrix, Led Zep)
Rap: can be an exhibition of talent (Big L, Jay 7 min freestyle)
Rap and Rock are just different cultures way of expressing the same damn thing. They're really not that different. And neither is better than the other, both are legitimate artistic expression, leave it at that.
Hey geewiz, rock artists rely on lyrics too. Bob Dylan is by far the best songwrtier ever i kno i said this twice. Oasis is the best songwriter of all time. If rock relied on instruments then why r there singers in bands that dont play an instrument live?
Rock-controlled screaming Are u kidding me? U think all rock bands scream? Some of them actually sing.
What is this rock opera rap poetry thing? What r u talking about?
Although rappers can exhibit talent. Guitar solos without messing up for a really long time > rap spitting for a long time. But not by much. And most rap nowadays is about sex and **** and raises kids the wrong way. (IMO)
I dont really consider rapping as music. Tell me this then people why dont they ahve rappers perform at the super bowl anymore? O ya because they suck and embarras themselves. (Janent jackson boobie) But instead you have english rock bands play who probably kno very little about american football.
Face it rock > rap.
