nothing because it's all crap!!!
Rayne: I shall dig around a bit but I can tell you for sure that you must start closer to its roots. Today's hip-hop/rap is basically what Leo said. Start with Doug E. Fresh maybe.
nothing against it actually. just not my taste in music. i just call it crap based on the complexity of the insturments, not the lyric content mind you, because i'm an instrumental type of person.
a lot of it is based on heart beat rythime and such and how to "make people move" to that rythime. which is fine and complex in itself, but i like instruments to convey different types of messages/emotions.
that's why i favor classial, i regard chopin with esteem.
but that's mostly why. i do knwo that lyrics in that sort of music style can be intellectual and complex, but for me, i could read shakespear if i wanted metaphores and other language styles.
So Rayne, could I get some sort of feedback? There are a bunch of other styles I can put you onto depending on your tastes and mood.
