    Not exactly what I meant.

    Are we talking "money, guns, drugs, bitches, and hoes", or something with a little more substance?

    No, it depends on "your" definition. This is your choice.

    Some people's favorite rapper is Ted Nugent.

    I hear ya'.

    I work with a white-guy, who is a self-proclaimed "rapper", and he sometimes does that shit at work. Most of the time, all I hears is, jibberish.

    funny you say that because sometime I get rap vibes from certain rock songs.

    at 1:43 the energy and the melody of that verse is pretty aggressive like you hear in a lot of rap.

    First country rap:

    I chew tobacco and spit it a jar
    Sometimes I spill it on the seat of my car.

    I would think there would be a lot of country rap by now.

    Rap's been around a long time now.

    This.
    This album is always in my truck.
    I actually like some Swollen Members albums too. There's always a few of their albums in my truck as well.

    I don't "get" the symphony or opera. But they have staying power. And fans of the music.

    I'm sure if I had enough exposure, there would be some slice of the symphony that I'd probably fall in love with.
