Everyone remembers their first dance, their first date, their subsequent dances and dates after that. Some people relive prom. I've dreamed about grade school before. Revisited the same classroom and relived the same school day, but never figured out the school year. Nor, if it was a school I attended.
I remember I was very into mainstream rap. It sounded fun then and it still sounds sort of fun now. Like the track Bad Girls by M.I.A. It sounds like old school gangster rap, yet it doesn't sound out of place with our modern times. Modern times that include popularized acts like Nicki Minaj, Lil Wayne, and those who create mass market tracks for clubs.
Do you like rap? Or dislike it with a fiery passion? What do you think a rap song is typically made of? Should rap songs preaching the gospel sit in the same genre as a song by Eminem with lines about statutory rape?
These are all hard questions, but I've seen people make harsh judgments on rap by tearing apart every little component. Should this behavior be justified?
I don't know. I probably think too much about it.
