I've never liked rap, in any form. I was raised on rap hating head banging principles. So my say on rap has/is/always will be the same. On the same token as rapper being unoriginal, the same is going for heavy music to. The nu metal scene, the metal core scene, even death and thrash are getting redundant. There are a few new bands who, though they have obvious roots in other music, are creating something new and interesting. (Lamb of God, Chevelle, Mastadon, Novembers Doom, Katatonia, Opeth) In all reality though, no one has the motivation to do anything original or interesting anymore. What's worse is that the media portrays these unoriginal fuck tards to be so great, and people buy it! Fuck the media.
