View Full Version : Why do you love Hip Hop?

Theres millions of hip hop fans across the globe and among those millions, there are a million different reasons why they love hip hop. Ive been a fan for years now and for the most part, its all I think about. When Im standing there at work- I have a song in my head or I'm thinking about beats or whatever, when Im in my car Im listening to whatever Im feeling at the time, its with me everywhere. And thats why I love, its immersive. Once you get a taste of quality hip hop music, it possesses you. Just all the artistic work involved and expression within hip hop and hearing what each emcee has to say in their unique way. Its one of the few things in my life that I never get tired of. It makes life more interesting and I cant imagine what life would be like without it. Wu-Tang is the first group that really drew me in and taught what hip hop was all about and their music impresses with every listen. Thats why Im posting on this site rather than some bullshit forum somewhere else

What about hip hop draws you in and why are you a part of the culture?
Im interested to hear what everybody has to say

I first listened to Hip-Hop in 1995, that was Cypress Hill - Black Sunday album...Temple Of Boom and Dre's The Chronic followed....it just pumped my blood in veins, I was overwhelmed by it and started to listen to it.....digged in the history, where it comes from 'n stuff and I just had more 'n more love for Hip-Hop. My love for HH is in me, in my soul. Maaad respect for the old school and the '90s Hip-Hop. Can't live without that stuff now.

i got into hip hop when i was about 9 years old because i would go to my friends house every day and their older bro would always have his friends over and they would be listening to Wu-tang, Nas, Biggie, Tupac, Dre, ect. I liked the beats but it was the lyrics that got me hooked. Listening to Illmatic, 36 chambers, liquid swords, ready to die, I heard some good rhymes.

It's an artform to me. There's so much that can be done with it, it combines elements from all other genre's and you get more lyrics in shorter spaces of time.

Because Hip-Hop loves me.

Fuck what you think.

It is eisier to articulate thoughts and feelings in hip hop. You can do most anything in god damn hip hop. Like country, rock, pop can't make a dr.octagon cause they don't have the range. Hip Hop can be made on any topic and any level of any race.

I love hip hop because it upsets the older white people I live by

My mother likes Hip-Hop 2. And my dad looks a lot like Cilvaringz & RZA.
ODB reminds me of my uncle who's dead now. R.I.P.

I look like those girls in that Prodigal Sunn 'The Grindz' video... Sorry.
And while we're busy, I only had sex with 1 guy and he's in jail now. Sorry.

It connects so many people across nations and cultures. There is so much to learn from the words. And in no way can rich white Americans take credit for it.

Makes me happy when I feel sad makes me feel better when I feeling good. I dont think I can pinpoint anything but the first time I heard Wu in 1994 I never wanted to listen to anything other than pure hip hop. Its a part of me as much as anything else. And over the last 11 years of listening to Wu-Tang nothing else sounds as good. Not all hip hop does it for me though only shit that I think is raw and pure. So yeah

Hip hop is beautiful. I can honestly say about 2 years ago I hated it. I hated the sound and everything. I liked a few artists. Clipse, NELLY, Pharell, but it wasnt until 2 years ago I caught the Wu Tang on accident pretty much. I heard Cream, and it made me a hip hop fan. Now im a die hard Wu fan and love the art of hip hop. Thats my story.

i dont just love the music , i love the art , the expresion and the message of hip-hop , not just rap i love , graffiti , breakdncing , dj'n etc , its all amazingly unique , and cos of this , hip-hop can never ever die , sure it may fade away eventually , but in some way or another , it will always creep its way back up to the top , and thats why i love hip-hop
