Now im a big fan of hiphop, been listening to it for 20 years and it seems the one genre of music that people who dont actually listen to it feel the need to discard it as rubbish.

So first off tell me if your a fan Yes or No

either way please tell us why you dislike it so much.

A fan of some but some of the lyrics that they use when they want another line to rhyme aren't actually words and just weird sounds and that stinks of lazy song-writing, cough Nicki Minaj.

Like a lot of the early rap and hiphop where the artists spoke about genuine social issues.

Don't like the pimp my ho bitches type of stuff.

This is like one of those cards with This Is True on one side and This Statement On The Other Side Of This Card Is False on the other.

It is complete and utter shite that will be quickly forgotten when it is no longer cool.

You certainly won't find any of the classic radio stations playing it 20 years from now.

It used to be good but now it's a mess

eta there is some good stuff around but you have to dig deep. I love what The Alchemist does - he is a very talented producer.

Except it has been around for over 30 years.

Basically you just don't like it and that's fair enough. It isn't going away anytime soon though.

Is that how you measure the longevity of music?

I don't listen to much radio but I don't think I've ever heard Dark Side Of The Moon given an outing on the radio. Let alone It Takes A Nation Of Millions.

That's what they said back in the 80's

I like some of it, but it's the attitude of the rapper that gets up my nose.

I'm a fan of conscious rap/hip hop.

Artist like Dead Prez, Talib Kwali, Afura, Common, Mos Def, Immortal Technique, Black thought.

But you lot in here wouldn't know anything about real hip hop.

I loved it back in the day. Public Enemy, KRS-1, JVC Force, NWA, Afrika Bambaata, Cypress Hill, LL Cool J etc. The eighties and early nineties stuff.

Some have argued it's older than that. Granted, it wasn't recognised as a genre until the mid-1970s, but they could trace the origins to the 1920s through the histories of scat singing and similar techniques.

(I don't know much about this genre, but I met a couple of music historians, with an interest in the U.S. history of this genre, who talked about it a lot. The British history of a similar genre is interesting in its own right, but I digress.)

We play public enemy to keep the kid quiet - he heard harder than you think so many times after he was born that it must have invaded his subconsious
