Music to jam to
Why do I like rap music? Honestly, the speed and rhythm really psych me up. The pace brings me energy. I think the kids call that the flow. I am also a fan of ‘positive’ rap music.
I think back to Jurassic Five as some of my first rap exposure. Feeling Golden always takes me back to being a kid and jamming with my homies driving around the suburbs of Seattle.
There is so much negativity in all music. Drugs, sex, adultury ect. Now, I am certainly no prude - but I will ask if this music is intended to inspire and empower? I find it hard to believe that this is the intention.
That said, within all styles of music there are people with positive messaging, true insight. That’s the art that I am attracted to.
