People_are_Idiots: The Millenia has a few catchy raps (mainly, surprisingly, LMFAO)


Oh, shiat! I didn't recognize you as a troll at first, my bad!

Ah, the nineties. Nothing like the shiat storm we're finally pulling out of to look forward to again!

The eighties was awesome!  How could you not love the eighties, especially if you went to High School in that decade.  If you didn't like the 80's, you must have been some sort of social outcast.

There's several.

MKIV Supra
300ZX TT
RX7
3000GT
NSX
Diablo
F40
SVT Lightning
Fox Body Cobra
Skyline
Viper
Syclone/Typhoon
H1
XJ220
Mclaren F1

etc.

TheDumbBlonde: Nick Nostril: TuteTibiImperes: The 90s were good times.  I guess the old racists don't care for them because they marked when hip-hop/rap culture really became mainstream, but there was plenty of good stuff going on.  History will remember Bill Clinton has one of our best Presidents ever.

Because if you don't like hip hop, you are a racist?

No generation ever before the 90s embraced black music. Ever. Dumbass.


I know! No one ever listened to black music before then, which is why record companies like Motown were such huge failu... Oh wait...

But, seriously, hip-hop was seriously cool stuff, and rightful successor to the Motown legacy. However, the gangster rap that followed is utter tripe that should never have seen the light of day.

Loreweaver: However, the gangster rap that followed is utter tripe that should never have seen the light of day.


Really, the question is, what do you consider gangster rap?  Rap can be categorized so many different ways. Early East coast (BDP/KRS-One after Scott la Rock died, Public Enemy, EPMD, Third Bass, ect.).  Early West Coast (NWA, followed by Ice-Cube and Doctor Dre, Ice-T, Snoop, ect.) Then you have the Biggie and Tupac era just after that all of which could be considered gangster and most certainly was NOT tripe.  Then you had groups that were more hip hop but still rap like A Tribe Called Quest or De La Soul, also NOT tripe.  Then you have the Beasties who were a category all unto themselves, absolutely NOT tripe.  You could make the argument that by the time we got to WuTang, 50 Cent, ect. we were heading downhill in the quality department (although there were talented musicians in that group (Method Man, Redman, ect.)).  Painting a brush over all "gangster rap" as tripe paints you as an idiot.

Mhmm, did I say roll-over awesome? I meant catchy, as in the lyrics. Rap in the 80's wasn't about gangs, drugs, guns... it was about having fun with friends.

And that comedian lost all respect with me when he dropped an N bomb, and was worse with the generalization with rap from the 80's. Let's compare...

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=fUii3L4Fqok - Eric B and Rakim, 1987

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=lH3hrtp1T84 - Gangstarr, 1998

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=OZnBt2W48A0 - Snoop Dogg, 2004

Uh, did you really lump in Wu Tang with 50 Cent? Wu is the reason NYC came back to the forefront after the emergence of G-Funk, and I don't know any hip-hop fan that considers them some sort of newer act or part of the downfall of rap. The downfall of mainstream rap was Biggie and Tupac dying and Puffy with his shiny suits taking over in the late 90s. The good rap has been underground and alternative ever since.

PsiChick: Oldiron_79: I didn't like the 90s overall mainly because cRap took over as the dominant form of music, but if hating cRap isnt a thing for you I guess otherwise the 90s was ok.

Liked the 80s and the first 7 or so years of the oughts was alright.

You do know 90's music was actually famous for the slightly-emo pop songs, not rap, right? Like Staind, Nickelback, Five For Fighting, Foo Fighters...

/Plus, you know, economy that worked, a real job market, things like that.
//Seriously, though, you listened to the wrong radio stations, I didn't start hearing rap until the aughts, and I still love slightly-emo pop songs.


Round these parts all the people who listen to whatever is trendy instead of what they actually like(you know souless retards) switched from rock to rap like the day after Kurt Cobain blew his brains out.

People_are_Idiots: You're right, cause it sucked. The 80's was when Rap was good,


"Even as you read this, white people are telling other white people about the golden age of Hip Hop that they experienced in a suburban high school or through a viewing of The Wackness."

The early 80's were awesome.  ~1980-1983.

Then, the golden age happened - ~ 1986-1992

There was a brief period of 'ok' 90's - ~1993-1995/1996

Then, everything started slowly going to shiat.

The '90s was the decade Glass-Steagal was repealed and outsourcing and insourcing took off, for those wondering why the last 12-14 years have been so bad.

Sorry, but what? The 90's is known most for grunge: Nirvana, Soundgarden, Pearl Jam, Alice in Chains, Smashing Pumpkins, Sponge and other alternative stuff like Oasis and Lush. The emo-pop stuff came later in late '90s but absolutely DOES NOT define the decade, and gangsta rap and hip hop WERE FREAKING HUGE in the early 90's post-Rodney King.

Gotta mention another: Green Day. It was also the decade Metallica went "alternative," and screamed like little kids during Napster.

Yeah, but that was more mid-90's, I was referring to around 90-94ish. And Green Day was and never will be as huge as the grunge explosion bands around 1992. Also, I thought the Napster thing was 2000, but close enough.
