Subject: When will that "Bubblegum Pop Rap" fad end?

Written By: Kyle on 05/17/05 at 5:46 pm

Aren't you getting sick of all this worthless "bubblegum pop rap" garbage.  All it does it makes people want to have sex and do lots of so-called "naughty" stuff.  I say it will start to die down anytime between the end of this year and 2007, and it wil be totally gone by 2012.  Then, hopefully, we might go back to the good stuff from the '90s, or some other type of weird music, such as alternative mixed with dance will take its place.  What do you think!

Unfortunately for us, it's here to stay. Even if it does fade out, like say, next year, it'll always be seething from below. :P

DUDE! THAT'S WHATI CALL IT TOO!

Bubblegum Rap sucks. That whole "oooh, look at us. We're talking about SEX... ON THE RADIO!!!!" thing gets old.

I hope it dies soon, but it might or might not. We'll see. Hopefully, we get an era of not-suck. But if you look at today's non-rap pop acts, we don't have a good future ahead of us. Most likely an EMO/Teen Romance mess.

I voted for 2008 - but purely as a guess. By then, I figure the "1999 influenced" culture and music will be pretty much gone (it's disappearing more now, but it's still prevalent).

Seriously though, even though I'm not exactly a fan of that stuff, I'll take bubblegum rap anyday over gangsta rap, or -- worst of all -- rap/metal! ;D

MC Hammer-ish stuff, but updated with a modern sound would be cool.
