Since I am the topic starter...
hate "hiphop", atleast all the new stuff. I just dont get it,I hear it and get borred, as where other genres are evolving into more dancable and just easier to the ears. I'm sure that alot has to do with the weak rhymes at best styles that these rappers bring to it. Everything just sounds repetetive, everything from the lyrics to the productions. I think its funny that they (producers) are now sampling older "hiphop" tracks that aren't eaven that old . and atleast try to hide it!
I sppin it because mainstream crowds (evwryone) want to hear it, but the fact of the matter, its just lame in my eyes.
Ok, Ihate reggeaton, but for some reason I have fun with it. I guess it's because it is still somewhat new and the crowds rush the floor. I suppose it hhpes me up and inspires me, so much that I think of new ideas right there and then. Like I said, It coulld be the crowd that feeds me, but what ever the case... it works.
Personaly, I enjoy most 80's music myself. This has to be my personal favorites, but its rare when it gets play in the club. I always get a good response when i do play it, but i can't play it all the time (reading the crowd).
Alright you fanatics, dont get all defensive and start bashing me, this is just a conversation about personal views and or ideas, thoughts, etc.
