Is it even possible for any self-respecting woman to like rap music? I mean, maybe I'm just stating the obvious but hip-hop(or whatever you kids call it nowadays) is inherently sexist, right?

Well, "inherently" would mean there's something sexist about rhyming over beats, since that's what rap is. There is a lot of sexism in rap, but there's also a lot of it in rock. Or in all things, really.

Dave Chappelle says about racism, "Traveling has made me a racism connoisseur, if you will... Anyone ever been down south? So you guys know what I'm talking about. Now the racism down there is just fucking MWAH! It's perfect! Stewed to a perfection! It's comfortable, it's out in the open. There are no secrets in Mississippi."

The same thing could probably be said about sexism in rap. Stewed to a perfection.

Rap isn't my favorite form of pop music, but saying Rap is sexist is like Jigga saying indie rock is Racist.

He has a fair point. You're making an extremely basic thread on a topic that has been discussed exhaustively on this board on multiple occasions in the past, not to mention the vast public discourse on the subject over the past 25 years on the Internet, in the media, and elsewhere.

Unless the thread was meant as extremely low-key parody or just deejbait, you are obligated to provide a more developed first post with a new angle on the issue or some topical/timely element to it.

In the future there is only drink and birds.

i go to a pub quiz every week and if there is any hip hop in the music round the quizmaster goes on a big rant about how stupid girls today must be to listen to such misogynistic rubbish and how bad the attitude in 'gangster rap' is in general (its always gangster, even if its kanye for example), then he'll play something nice and polite like guns & roses and say "eeh thats more like it, in my day we knew how to treat a lady"* :lol:

Yes, this is quite the stupid thread.
Download this EP I made. The songs are pretty close to where they should be. I colaborated with Brian Wilson and Thom Yorke and then we all fucked in my basement apartment. Thom has a really big dick suprisingly, and Brian Wilson cried the whole time, yelling "These moans are not in perfect harmonic unison". Anyway, it sounds like what you would imagine something from that situation sounds like.

I thought this thread said "Rape is Sexist" which I would likely have agreed with.
Sail Away: The Songs of Randy Newman -7.5/10
Dusty Springfield - Dusty in Memphis 8.5/10
Buddy & Julie Miller - Written in Chalk wow, first listen, but great great record! 9.3/10
Justin Townes Earle - Midnight at the Moviessurprisingly great, never picked up his past releases, but this one's knocking my socks off right away, 8.7/10
M. Ward - Hold Time 8.0/10
Neko Case -Middle Cyclone her best I've heard is my initial impression, but too soon to rate, haven't had a really good listen yet 7.8/10

nah while i agree rap is sexist, i disagree on how women could possibly like rap look at the clubs - it has beats and you can dance to it, and it has catchy hooks - "certain" people dig that, regardless of gender. also, rap can also glorify murder, crack, etc. - most people take this tongue in cheek, and don't take the concepts to heart, regardless of gender
