I can't stand hip hop or rap or whatever. It's all about either exploiting women, or apologizing because they exploited women


NO! It's not :@ Maybe the rap you've listened to. That's not fair to say because you obviously havent heard much rap. Ever listened to tupac, yes some of his songs are about girls like maybe 2 or 3 He has over hundreds of songs, all about his life story, how he wants things to change, how theres to much killing going on in the ghetto.


Machina Maw, you listen to a lot of different types of music :o

I'm kind of surprised at how many people listen to rock, (Not saying anything bad about rock) I would have never guessed ;)

Zeo, you play bass? That's cool ^^ Are you in a band? My brother plays drums (and I play guitar), so we were going to start one, but it kinda went downhill :p Ha!

Yup, yup, I'm in bands. ;)
We're going to play in a demo, just for fun, in some weeks. :)

I've played the bass for 4 long years now. :D I also play drums, I like to know how it's actually is to play drums so then I can complain on the drumer when he does mistakes without he telling me "do it yourselves". :D Hehe, kiddin. ;)

Del the funkee homosapien doesn't rap about exploiting women. HaliCali probably aren't singing about exploting or apologizing for exploiting, nor Rip Slyme.

About R&B. My favorite new R&B that I learned about is Shuggie Otis, some of his music plays in the background if you look here:

Exactly, Most rappers today like 50 cent do rap about women, But people like 50 cent arn't the only rappers out there. I really dont like 50 cent.. Some of his songs are good but i still dont like him. next time dont say you dont like rap because all rappers rap about, grils, sex, money(etc..)

That's awesome! :D Good luck with it, by the way ;)
I took guitar lessons for 6 months, but my teacher left, so I stopped for a year. But, I started about 6 months ago. So, a year with lessons, but 2 in total ;) I'm obsessive with it :p:D

Anything spoken in Japanese is great, in my opinion. Maybe because I can't understand it and don't even know what the song is about. I just love the language. Of course, i've only heard a few songs and for some, I don't even know who sang them.

LOL. Most of the Japanese songs i've heard were in movie credits. I have had to ask my Japanese pen pals the names of the singers and the songs.

Yeah me too. I like almost all Japanese and the more American stuff i like is really anything but rap and country and crap that has no point. Like crap talking about how many girls you can get.
