This Shizz Called Rap Ain't Nuthin' But Crap

The past 3 years of my life
have been filled with hardcore strife.
My kids have a new fondness for rap.
I, on the other hand, think it's total crap.
All I wanna do is turn off that freakin' hip hop nation.
And go back to jammin' on the cool pop station.
I just don't see how my two boys
Can put up with all of that useless noise.
Gangstas sure do like to cuss!
It's no wonder I put up such a fuss!

When I hear songs from Lil Wayne
All it does is cause me pain.
People like Drake, Rick Ross and Nicki Minaj
MY GAWD, I wish they were all just a mirage!
Regardless of the sweet sound of his name,
I hate Eminem all the same.
Then they turn on someone named Mac Miller,
And I think, "Damn, that dude's gotta be a killer"!
Need I even tell you how I feel about Chris Brown?
His extracurricular antics just make me frown.
Kanye West will tell you he's da best.
He seriously causes palpitations in my chest.
Then when I hear someone like Jay Z,
I get on my knees and say this merciful plea:

This post was written in response to Trifecta's writing challenge in which the writer was to post a creative memoir about a period in their life that can be identified by the number 3.

  1. This is brilliant! I love it. My eldest went through a few "music" phases. The first one was where he liked the same music as I. The second one - which came after all of my CD's got the crap beat out of them - was German Industrial Heavy Metal. Listening to Rammstein 24/7 is enough to make suicide seem somehow appealing.

  2. Can you now please please record this as a rap and post on youtube?? I would love you forever and a day :)

  3. Oh, how I love this! The judge from the Nation of Galtopia gives you a 10 for inspiration and a 10 for execution.

  4. I try hard SO hard to like stuff. And I don't know if it's because my evil sib was such a rap fan or what, but I only like a very little bit of rap. But then, I don't like a lot of modern pop, either. In fact, I'm just a picky music biatch, come to think of it. I don't mean to be, really, but I am.

  5. Thanks for linking up with Trifextra this weekend. I'm sorry that your life has been hijacked by a bunch of rapping gangsters. :-) It must be awful to be subjected to music you can't stand. For that reason, my children have never listened to children's music. Ugh. Hope to see you back soon.

  6. Rap is awful. It's very rare for me to like rap, hip hop, or R & B. I had to listen to a station at my last job, and that's all they played. I'd change the station if I got there first, and people would whine about how horrible country music is. I finally piped up and said, "Trust me, your hip hop people whine worse than my country folk these days. We call it 'twang'. And at least I can fucking understand my music."

  7. I'm not a huge fan of rap, although I have to disagree with Nicki Minaj and Drake. I like them. Their songs are just way to catchy, and Drake has a sexy voice. But, everyone else I can do without ;) lol

  8. I'm not a fan of rap, either. (Of course, the 'awful' music isn't limited to just rap). I have to laugh, though, because I think parents hating their children's music happens with every generation.

  9. Ahhh! Love this. I can tolerate *some* Jay-Z and I like Drake but Rick Ross and Lil Wayne. UGH!!!! It's all such garbage.

  10. I am selective about my rap - LOL! But, it has to be a bad influence... Our rock lyrics were bible verses in comparison to this stuff...

    Thanks for commenting over at my place, BTW :D

  11. You NAILED my feelings exactly. My 21 year old is coming around (she loves country) but my 19 year old dude is still punishing me. For what? I don't know. Way too clever.

  12. Rap is angry chanting, not music. Use it scare off the coyotes and raccoons.

  13. I feel your pain. Sometimes I think my son chooses the songs he likes based on my face when I hear them.

  14. My kids aren't into rap but they ARE into blasting their music at all hours of the day. I used to get angry. Then I remembered how I used to blast Depeche Mode when I was a teenager.

  15. A guy who works with my wife said that Lil Wayne is one of the greatest musicians of our time because he writes his own songs. It took all I had in me not to just punch a hole in his face.

  16. Word to to your mother.
    I hope Rap ends up like Disco.

  17. Ya gotta good rap going on there tho woman! lols. I never got into the whole rap scene. I'm hoping my daughter doesn't either. I may have to move us to a place where there is no rap. We be AMish or something, lols...
