My problem with some rap songs...

...After I got used to the style, the trouble I had most with quite a bit of the rap I encountered was the violence, and the way that violence was the solution to problems.

When you've got someone who's dedicated to avoiding drama, and their way of avoiding drama is to cut out the messy bits where people start talking about the problem and yelling recriminations at each other, and just skip straight to the shooting...

... which was a theme in too many of those songs ...

... that opens up more trouble. Suddenly the brothers and cousins and sisters and parents of the people you just blew away spring up with real problems with you, and after they blow your ass away, your clan gets in on the action...


Really, I prefer to keep that action on the streets of Verona, safely onstage.

It's universal, I guess, but that doesn't make me like it any better.
