I sat back and thought of how many amazing songs are out there right now. It's incredible, yet rap gets such a bad flack because of radio.

Some picks:
I Have A Dream - Common
Desperado - Saigon
Black Republicans - Nas and Jay

I would pay an extra 12 bucks a month to have songs like this be in heavy rotation, versus songs like "Throw Some Deez" or "Help"....

Lil Shawn, why don't you do this????????????????

Well, hopefully a lot of people who feel this way (I do too) fill out that Hip-Hop Nation survey. Hopefully it'll make a difference...I won't hold my breath though.

I am enjoying backspin right now & I didn't realize how much better the music was back in the day.

The southern "Krunk" frigging killed rap. I can't stand shit like Little John. In my mind, rap as a whole hit a quality peak around the time of Dre's "Chronic" or some of Tupacs stuff in the 90's. Actually, I think my favorite of all time though is still "Direct from the Backstreets".

Crunk ruined the public's perception of what hip-hop is and unfortuneately it's popular. There is still good hip-hop that comes out today. The problem is Sirius, MTV, etc. just don't play it.

Wouldn't it be great is Sirius had a separete channel for crunk and other channels for real hip-hop? Maybe keep Backspin, but limiting it to pre-90's, have a 90's rap channel along with an Underground rap channel. There definitely needs to be more than three for four channels for this genre. We can at least hope, can't we?

I agree. I really like rap but only if it has smooth, complicated rhymes. Dre's "Chronic" and pretty much everything from Tupac are the best examples of what I like, as well as a lot of Eminem's music. I also really dig old school- I always will click over to Backspin while driving to see what's on. My CD player in the shower right now has "Too Short, Born to Mac" in it.

Yep, same here. Right now I'm listening to Gang Starr's "Moment of Truth" album. They barely get played on Backspin or any other hip-hop channel and they're two of the best to ever do it in my opinion. I guess America would rather listen to Jibbs.

Sadly, most Americans listen to whatever Clear Channel tells them to listen to. Rap was a hell of a lot better before it became main stream. Back in the days of "Straight outa Compton" the only thing that controlled rap was the people buying the albums.

I think hip hop (on the radio) was already being killed way before "krunk". Look back further... it was Puffy. That bama came out after Biggie died and changed everything - for the worse. After that everyone wanted to copy that BS style and then from there the Southern rap style came along soon after, even before it was "krunk".

It's a shame that there are so many good MCs out there with something decent to say and the "#1 hits" on the radio are Fergie or Chingy or anyone with Lil at the beginning of thir name.
