Jazz Rap. It's majority Japanese, and the instrumentals are a banger.

I think a lot of the argument trying to be made has to do with what people would define something as an 'art-form' over 'music'.

Myself? I don't really consider white noise, or noise music, as music. More-so experimental, or prose. But, it's music. Some venetian snare drumcore can get pretty dull in terms of pitch over 6 minutes, but it's music. Extratone can have little to no rhythm other than 1200bpm bleep bloops, and could in some cases be considered harsh noise, but it's still a genre of music.

Wow I missed this thread.

The way I see "music" is as follows: Does it have a melody? Does it have rhythm? The answer to that question is 100% of the time YES. Music always has both of these components.

Now let's ask us the following: Does RAP MUSIC have melody and rhythm? The answer to that question is absolutely yes. Even underground rappers have a melody and rhythm to go off of. Brainsick 1.0 by Twisted Insane, Kaancepts by KAAN are the two best examples I can provide of UNDERGROUND shit. But you can hear a melody and a rhythm to both beats. Therefore I would consider Rap to be music.

I disagree, i heard ZERO music in these. They are poems
Rap nowadays is literally just crappy mumble rap that you cant even understand but people call it "music" because it has a beat. Not true at all.

To anybody trying to make their statement that rap isn't music seem less offensive by saying "because it's poetry instead" do you actually LIKE poetry? Because if you don't like poetry at least as much as you like music, you're still relegating rap to a status of "lesser" which is some pretty dangerous ground to be treading.

Is this poetry to you...?? to me it sounds like a fun party song about smoking weed with very little poetic value aka music

Quote:
So what I keep 'em rolled up
Saggin' my pants not caring what I show
Keep it real with my **********
Keep it player for the hoes
And look clean don't it?
Washed it the other day, watch how you lean on it
Give me some 501's jeans on and roll joints bigger than King Kong's fingers
And smoke them hoes down 'till they stingers
You a class clown and if I skip for the day I'm with you bitch smokin' grade A

I know shadowgod knows this one....

so poetic

Quote:
Half a bottle of 151 off in a jug
One cup of Malibu Rum, baby that's whassup then you
Fill the rest of the jug with pineapple juice and it's crackin'
The only defect is waking up like what happened
I like red light parties and fed right bodies who like
Bread like Dolly and head right totties at night
Tech n9ne is an awesome rapper with some dope rhymes and poetic lyrics but are you really gonna tell me that the song Caribou Lou is primarily poetry and not a party SONG?
