No one makes rap anymore anyway, at least mainstream, it's "hip-hop".  There really is a difference.  I still love 90's rap but that's where I stop.   I dig electronic genres,  but it's nothing knew.  I loved Prodigy's Fat of the Land and then Crystal Method, those were the first "main stream" electronic albums I had.  Then my brother introduced me to stuff like DJ Icey (trance) and others.  There are a ton of sub-genres.  +1 to throwing out that Skrillix didn't invent dubstep, it's true.  Dubstep really isn't like Skrillex's stuff mostly anyway.  I do like Skrillex though, it should be classified as "Transformer Sex" genre though.

I'll drop in some Lounge while I'm working at my desk .....used to listen to digital.fm, but my music tastes change all the time. My latest purchases have been the Two Steps from Hell epic music.

You would willingly subject yourself to Macklemore, but shun every other hip hop/rap artist? Yikes.

I enjoy music with a positive message, a lot of people trying to be all thug is completely lost on me, but as I said before I'm not exactly a big fan of Rap and Hip hop to begin with, more of a Singer/Songwriter indi person myself, and that's practically on the opposite side of the musical world from rap.

I never liked music growing up. It was never a part of my life. When I would drive in the car I would just sit there in silence. I was always the kid that never knew what the name of a popular song was or what the lyrics were to some stupid pop song. It just never interested me. When I did listen to a song, I primarily focused on the instruments and beat of the song. That being said the first type of music I listened to and enjoyed was classical. There was nothing but instruments and no vocals to get in the way. Just pure - awesome sound. The first time I heard techno I knew it was my genre. My college roommate had a huge library of songs and I got hooked on Infected Mushroom. Not my favorite artist now but it was something that really turned me onto the genre. It just made sense to me. Then I heard the first drop and I was sold.

I like those REM guys.  I think they've got some potential.

Yeah. You can stop the jayz slander right there.

He's got 99 problems, but listening ain't one.
