GUEST,josepp Blues vs Rap (136* d) RE: Blues vs Rap 01 May 12

But blues is not rap. To kids today, hip-hop is not rap, DJ mixes are not rap and techno is not rap. Just because a guy is talking instead of singing doesn't make it rap to rap fans. If he's reciting jazz poetry it is not rap. They see huge differences just like kids today see huge differences between punk, goth, death metal, black metal, thrash, etc. If you try to pass one off as the other, they'll call you a phony or an idiot or both.

So why call what you do rap? Why pigeon-hole it? Nobody respects that. Every artist always says he's doing something different from everyone else. So reject the rap label. Rap is dead.
