Rap music has been around for sometime. I've actually caught a part of it, being much younger when artists like MC Hammer burst into the scene. Vanilla Ice had a one song hit which we converted into a cheer back in med school. I don't believe anybody knows Vanilla Ice by now. Now there are so many! I do not recognize any of the names -- must be getting older. :)

It's a pretty catchy genre. My biggest problem with rap music, though, is that I sometimes do no understand what the artist is saying! I do like knowing the Rap Lyrics because I'd like to know what my impressionable kid is picking up when exposed to such music.
