I personally prefer and enjoy rap music to punk/rock/ska, any of that other stuff. However, I do enjoy movie soundtracks (Star Wars :D ), Latin, and Jazz music. What do you listen to?

Classical (John Williams, Mozart, Copeland, Tchaikovsky)
Country/Bluegrass (Tim McGraw, Ricky Skaggs, Alison Krauss, Johnny Cash)
Classic Rock (Led Zeppelin, CCR, The Who, Rolling Stones, Hendrix, Pink Floyd)
some 80s Pop (Big Country, Eurythmics, Midnight Oil, Mr. Mister)

Not a fan of blues, jazz, hip-hop, rap or latin music. I do like a lot of Techno music, though.

The closest I have ever come to enjoying rap is one of the Beastie Boy songs that I heard years ago (I don't know the name). It just does nothing for me.

I'd have to say I like a little bit of everything.

I never take music style into account when I like a tune.

I love Pink Floyd stuff, Roger Waters solo stuff more so but on the flipside I've always enjoyed Tennessee Ernie Ford.

There's too much music out there to be enjoyed to simply limit myself to one genre.

any They Might be Giants fans out there?

I love rap. Good rap that is.

Beastie Boys, Fat Boys, Heavy D, Grand Master Flash, Sugar Hill Gang, Whodini, Public Enemy, Busta Rhymes, JJ Fad, Wil Smith, Sir Mix-A-Lot, Digital Underground, Tone Loc, NWA, it's all great stuff. Unfortunately, few rappers today can even come close to measuring up. I actually don't even believe that most "rap" today is even rap. To me, rap is music with a beat, that rhymes, and usually has a message or tells a story. Most of todays stuff is lucky to meet ONE of those requirements.

Is Vanilla Ice considered rap?

I'm a proud owner of his "Cool As Ice" movie.

I'm not a big fan of any particular rapper, except for the Beastie Boys. They don't play them often in Utah on the radio, however. :(

I also like Tone-Loc, some Snoop, and that one song by Sir Mix-a-lot, you know the one...

Red Hot Chili Peppers
G & R
Chopin
B.B. King
Stevie Ray Vaughan
Ice Cube

All kinds more, but it would take too long to list

Yes I love all those artists, I grew up with them. In fact why I like Eminem is the same reason I got into rap in the first place, the humor element.

Yeah, old rap from the late 80's was all I listened to back then, Eminem is the only one I listen to now. I still like the Beastie Boys though, but a lot of their stuff now I wouldn't consider rap, at least not like they used to be.

See actually rap was considered black punk rock and since the Boys were punk rockers they fit nicely into the equation. Eminem is the funniest, wittiest rapper to come along.......of all time I would say. I would say he has the cleverest rhymes since Biz Markie.

I think the Beastie Boys are considered rock here in NC, since you only hear them on the rock stations. However I do like some of the rap, but not as much as others. Its gotten to where some artists are way too vulgar.
I prefer the rap of the 80's and early 90's.
I am the proud owner of the "Monsters of Rap" CD.

Jango, you should also check out Millenium Hip Hop Party.

Well, I'm from down here in New Orleans and we have record companies such as Cash Money (Juvenile, BG, Lil Wayne, Turk, Big Tymers) and No Limit (Master P, C Murder, others) that are pretty much mainstream down here. Also, which are definate favorites are Ja Rule, DMX, P Diddy, and others. One that is not my favorite, however, is Eminem. I really don't enjoy his music. But that's my taste.

QLD, I have seen the ads for Millenium Hip Hop Party, but I have forgotten who all is on it. Who are some of the artists on the CD?

QLD, I noticed Busta Ryhmes on your list - even though I never really listened to any of his albums, I like him a lot! :)
He did a version of Iron Man (w/ Ozzy) for the second Black Sabbath tribute album and it is a DELIGHT! Plus, I like seeing that guy in movies. I've been meaning to pick up a CD, but never have . . . what do you recommend if I were to buy only one?

Mad Dog 103.9 also plays them, but only two songs. Sabotage and one other. Are they just hated here or something?
