Yeah, I Like Rap Music

People get confused when I say I like rap

Yeah, I Like Rap Music

Music is something that I feel has the power to bring us all together.

That being said, I don't understand why people seem to be so down on rap music. When I meet someone new and the inevitable question of what my favorite kind of music is, comes up they are always surprised to hear me say rap. I guess I don't "look the part" which makes me wonder what a rap fan is supposed to look like. I imagine its a person that likes rap music but apparently I'm wrong.

I get that rap music's stereotype isn't great, but it is just that, a stereotype, it isn't always true. I feel people assume a lot when it comes to rap music

Rap has always intrigued me. The idea of speaking and rhyming so quick and fluid is awesome. I can't sing very well and I feel that rapping doesn't require a good singing voice. It does require a quick-thinking mind, which for some can be hard.

To rap all one has to do is being to speak and rhyme on beat, something I am more able to do. I don't rap, but I feel that If I was forced to do one or the other, my rapping would fair better than my singing.

The first "rap" I ever heard was from Epic Rap Battles of History. I'd have their playlist on repeat while I did homework and could do a few of them. Eminem is the big one I listen to nowadays. Cinderella man and Rap god were the ones that got me to listen. Since then JT Music has been the second big rap artist that I listen to.

The Venom movie had a song by Eminem in it and that has gotten me back into Slim Shady's world. I hope just maybe this has gotten you to potentially try out rap music instead of just dismissing it like everyone else.

How Not To Go Insane During Summer

Holy cow. If you're like me, you are bored out of your mind taking summer classes all the way until August. Then just to come right back and take more classes for the Fall?

It is like I am going insane.


I mean, I am taking rigorous classes which allow me to devote a lot of my time towards them, but is only two classes. By the time I get done, I have a whole half of the day full of nothing. I end up just sitting on my phone for most of the day instead of doing something practical.

So here I have compiled a list of how to keep yourself from not going crazy!
