Good to hear

This is good to hear, and I hope others do the same. Hell, if they somehow figured out how to integrate ads into an mp3 file that plays on your PC before or during the playing of a music file I would not have a problem with it at all - I'd say it would be a decent exchange.

Ads in a music file? No thanks, if I want ads, I'll listen to the radio.

The change that really needs to happen is for them to start selling music at reasonable prices that most people can afford. Maybe they could use P2P to do this.

I suppose it's OK, but, I wouldn't get caught dead listening to rap. Hell, I can mumble, swear, and shout just as well as any of the rappers. And, it doesn't cost me a dime.

But you can't do everything else. Write songs, connect with masses of people, have a perfect flow, witty metaphors, punchlines, similes, huge subject matter in a limit of bars, breath control, freestyle of the stop of your dome(head)etc etc.

hes right...

you write off the art of lyricism as "rap not worth hearing".

But I bet your a rocker or something to that extent. An I also bet you hate that bubble gum pop rock. Same as us hiphop heads that listen to the genre...

And trust, you cannot carry on 32 bars of music, keep your flow, and recite every last word so the audience hears you like, say, I can every week at open mics...

Actually, I listen to a wide variety of music, rock, jazz, R and B, classical, and even some country. Rap will never be one of my choices. But, it doesn't make any difference to me at all if others do - and consider it an art form.

Good for 50 Cent -- we actually agree on something. File sharing is a legit alternative to companies incapability to sell their product and attempt to control the person and medium and not market better.

I've never bought the "stealing" mentality, as I've recorded music on cassettes and CDs since the late late 80s. The recording industry just convinced a lot of people to buy into their view, one which I've never supported, and never will.

Rap is nothing like it was back in the day. Now it's just F this or f that and let's kill someone etc. It's gone down hill. Even some of the rappers admit that it needs to be cleaned up.
