ok let me sum up this thread.

those who don't like rap = that was lame.

those who are indifferent to rap, like some rap, like a lot of rap = that was cool.

now we get to the point where someone tries to defend themselves by saying that they do like rap because they liked some song from like 10 years ago, or they've heard a kanye song and want to sound like they're hip.

continue.

Some people are just closed off to other forms of music, and U2 fans are the most guilty of this, in my experience.

I grew up in hip hop culture. Jay-Z is truly an icon, and he's going to be the first hip hop artist to TRULY be viewed as a great musician, rather than a great rapper. There's such skill involved in rapping and hip hop music in general, it's a shame that some view it as simply "talking over a drum beat".

Thank you for expressing exactly what I was thinking.

I'm not a fan of hip hop, but I don't see what the issue of having hip hop at Glasto was the big deal.

However, some regular Glasto goers were against Jay-z cos of his mysogynistic lyrics. Never having listened to him, I wouldn't know. But if he indeed is guilty of that, then Glasto really was the last place he should have played at.

Jay Z in an interview:

"A few days before Glastonbury Jay-Z played in Dublin and visited Bono, who is at work on a new U2 album. 'I heard about four tracks,' he says. 'And the thing about Bono is, he's in the studio like a kid, excited and singing the lyrics back, asking what I think. That's passion, only passion. Trust me. He doesn't have to do it.'

Jay-Z relates to this. 'Music is a challenge,' he says. 'Music's like, "What have you done for me lately?" Don't matter if you make seven, eight great albums. U2 are arguably one of the greatest bands ever. If their next album is not great people are going to say they're finished. U2!'"

I wish Jay-Z would join this forum
