    Dude ain't saying nothing, just the same thing over and over, as to why his song is #2 on hot 100 is a mystery to me.
    yeah, rap has gone retarded, a lot of the songs nowadays have no real meaning......thats why i like kanye west,tupac,B.I.G.,the young eminem,etc.

    Watch Out For Detox.


    I'd like to die with the songs I love stuck in my head. I hope to make the most of these hollow bones we become.

    I don't get why some ppl listen to j pop/rock when they don't know Jap ... it is like reading a raw-manga, you see the nice drawings, but you don't know anything else :S

    It is hard to find 'good' mainstream music these days =(

    I agree with you on this, but music is music there are some J-pop music that are horrible and some that are not. To otaku's I personally think they need a life, in my opinion.

    Gangster rap is just really crap.
    But guys like Common and A Tribe Called Quest, they can still be called Hip-Hop.

    Yeah, lyrics aren't the only part of a song. The music is still the most important part. Look at Classical music, Jazz, Bossa, and more.

    That's what translation sites are for. I don't need to know the lyrics to know that I like a singer's voice, or that the melody or arrangement of a song is well-composed or sounds nice. I love J-pop because most songs don't sound similar, for instance. ^_^

    *will admit she's a bit of an otaku when it comes to music and it's an awful thing, don't be like me. Don't spend all your money on different copies of the same AAA single, no matter how cute Nissy may be...*

    So you read manga for it's art not for its story? You are basically taking away the song's meaning if you don't know what it is about. It is like you like the beat of some gangster rap, but it talks about rape, woman abuse, getting richer, etc. are you still going to listen to it? I know I won't.

    But everyone has their own taste, so I won't argue~ (especially arts)

    ...Sometimes I do read a manga for its art. Mostly I read it for the story, but there have been occasions. Anyway, I look up the translations for most songs that I like - to see what they mean. And if I don't? Does that mean I can't appreciate the music of a song?
