Why I don't listen to rap: So-called entertainers that steal beats from other entertainers and who then call each other phony.
I remember when I was in the Army, in Iraq in 2005 I think, my room mate at the time heard me listening to some Ozzy Osbourne or something, and in his ignorance, declared that the song I was listening to had stolen the beat from some new rap song that was out and that people need to quit stealing beats from rappers. And I am just sitting there in shock as I explain to him that the song in question was written in like 1981.
This same roommate also had entire CD's worth of backbeats that he would record himself rapping to and he'd try to sell CD's of his raps to people. He'd buy the backbeats off of someone for like $5 or $10 bucks each for a 2 minute loop. He'd seriously have girls in the room and he'd be doing his salespitch for his CD's. And then he'd listen to his own music for hours at a time at night. SMH
