i like trip hop. it's hip hop thats been drained through an ambient/electronic sieve so all you have left is the beat with no rap lyrics. portishead, tricky, morcheeba, massive attack. these are trip hop artists that i like.

I do not normally listen to rap.  Though there is the occasional rap song I do like.  Like for example "Changes" by Tupac is a great song.

There are some mainstream rap/hip-hop type songs that I do like, along with many other types of music.

Personally, I don't care much for rap.  There are some songs I like, but for the most part, I would rather listen to rock.

IMHO, I think that rap is actually killing a lot of the musical culture of the African-American community.  It is amazing now many of the current generation have absolutely no idea what else is out there that is also "Black music".

A few years ago, I worked as a DJ at a black club.  The owner brought me in with the hopes of expanding the music played.  At that time, it was only playing rap, and the number of attendees was shrinking every month.  And 98% of them were black, which made it hard to bring in new clients.

My first night there, I played "All Along The Watchtower" by Jimi Hendrix.  Immediately I had some people complaining, accusing me of playing country!  Excuse me, country?  Last time I checked, Jimi was a Blues artist.  Later I played "Atomic Dog" by George Clinton.  Once again the complaints started, this time saying I was playing Disco.

The next week, I played Bob Marley.  This time, they had no idea what to call it, but they still complained.  About 3 months later, I quit the job.  It seemed that the majority of the patrons only wanted rap, the more violent and disgusting the better.

Now there was a small majority that really liked the stuff I was playing.  We even tried to set up an "Oldies Hour" at the beginning of the shift, but every time we tried to do it, 5 or 6 people would complain, and we had to change back to hard rap.  It's a sad commentary, when a white middle-aged guy knows more about "Black Music" then a room full of black people.  :(

Now 1 of my current favorite CDs that I listen to is Jay-Z and Linken Park.  Their compilation CD is absolutely awesome.  I also listen to Black Eyed Peas fairly often.  But give me the good old "R&B" over rap any time.

I immediately dismiss rap that has brand names, butt references and excessive violence in it.

No rap is good rap.  :P

OK, I'll change my mind:

There are some good rap/hip hop, but IMO, I have no time for most of it... it just grates on my nerves after a while. Trip-Hop and electronica can be good sometimes. Just as long as it isn't too repetitive or long...

Mainstream, because I like some of Eminems songs, as long as they're censored.
