Why rap is an underrated genre of music

There is a lot of people that don’t enjoy or listen to hip hop or rap music, for many different reasons, but this genre and style of music is much deeper than some of the songs you hear on the radio. Many people like to say rap music is “rhyming and poetry”, and not all of the rap music nowadays is like this, but some of these artists are brilliant and creative and talented, just like other music stars.

These artists also find a way to rhyme many different words with meaning behind what they are saying. The things these rappers talk about have never been spoken about by anyone else, they show you their point of views on their struggles and what it took them to be successful.

Rappers such as Kendrick Lamar, J. Cole, Kanye West, A$AP Rocky, Kid Cudi, and many others find new sounds, flows, and styles for their music. The songs they create might be vulgar, but these are words they chose to describe what they have felt or what they are feeling. If your looking for good music to pump you up for whatever reason, rap music is the best option.

These artists like to collaborate with each other and other artists from different genres, including Taylor Swift, Ariana Grande, and U2. Try something new, listen to some of these artists music with an open mind, and guaranteed you will learn new words, experiences, and issues.
