I read that whole thread about most rap containing bad subjects. Well think of it like this. Gangsta rap is the death metal version of hip hop. Sure a lot of people wont like it. But a lot do. I dont go around saying that rock sucks b.c. they all scream and talk about satan. B.c. they all dont. The mainstream guys (lil wayne, drake, soulja boy) are like the bad radio rock bands. Linkin Park, nickleback, three days grace. Not all rock bands sound like these bands either. There are plenty of rappers who dont talk about vulgar or candy ass subjects. You guys are making generalizations over whats popular, which is never the way to go. B.c. whats popular now adays is usually not too great. I can honestly say that there are just as many emcees today making decent hip hop as there are bad rappers making bad rap. Just look past the radio it isnt hard. Now I can understand if rap and hip hop isnt your genre. Not everyone likes it. But to say most of it contains bullshit and generic beats and lyrics is stupid.
