    Dude I'm really digging that edit. I think the music and surfing in the video compliment eachother quite well.

    Ahh Robber, I'll give you some props, as they say in da streets....

    But I did kind of grow up with rap. I've been hearing it since I was 12. And it's just in no way comparable to music produced by instruments. How could it be? It's cheating. The world is declining and pop culture is a noticable symptom.

    I like that you mentioned this youth/culture change thang. It is something I have been having discussions with myself for sometime.

    Yes, Elvis and The Beatles scared the parents of America, but there is a distinct difference - John Lennon was a musical genius and French Montana just ain't. Neither is Kanye. Popular music/rock and roll was continuing to evolve and grow more sophisticated. This stuff out there today is a regression. Rap's been around since at least the early 80's and it will never, by me, be considered a sophiticated genre. It's a novelty and a way to keep thugs off of the streets....sometimes.

    Then there's the whole thing aboot music's bad influence. Growing up as a pubescent type I was admonished by certain friend's mommies for listening to Iron Maiden and Black Sabbath. I was going to marry the devil because of The Number of the Beast LP. Ha, I still love Jesus to this day.

    Today, there's shootings within the music industry primarily heralded by that old east vs west coast rap thang. And good Lord, the poster boy of the west coast was born and raised in New York and Baltimore. How's aboot that? Ironic, huh.

    Anyways, you're OK, Robber. I got respect for ya. Yeah, I tend to be friggin vain when it comes to my opinions and am in shocking disbelief when others don't think like me. Yeah, I need to work on that..........But the commercially succesful rap of today is just God-awful. That's not an opinion that's a fact. Look, I've been sitting up at nights listening to the Music Choice channels on my cable provider. They cover every genre............

    I've been checking out the rap channel frequently. It is just dreadful. First, is Drake a collabarator on EVERYONE'S songs? Good lord, that dude is pathetic but he has this solid reputation. Why? Oh man, there's just nothing to any of these songs. I garauntee that any 3rd grade class could come up with better rhymes than these clowns. Today's stuff makes the 90's rap dudes look like Mozart.

    Maybe the reason you don't hear hip-hop on surf videos is because no one ever asked these guys like these to produce tracks for one....

    And "it's just pushing buttons" like playing a guitar is "just strumming strings."

    Anybody can move buttons up and down or push them......right from the start. Yeah a competent computer player needs to have some skill to piece together a musical masterpiece but it just ain't the same thing as creating music with a bass, drum and a giddy.

    But a guitar virgin won't be able to fret a simple cord. It will take them a while to play a simple chord progression.

    Now really, how can one compare guitar virtuosos Randy Rhoads and Eddie Van Halen to some dudes pushing and jigging buttons? Scratching records? Sampling real music.........

    Sorry Erock, but we gonna have to agree to disagree on this one. So out of all the instruments you play, you think using computers to create music is the most difficult? I just can't see that. Just look at all of the no talents that do it.

    Did you know that surfing might have saved me? I was going to be a rock star when I hit my teens but surfing completely took over. And I blew the guitar off. No I didn't make oral love to it, I just played less.....and less......and less. Man, if I made it in the music biz, even some local club hero, man........Ozzy.......Nikki Sixx........ha I would have made them guys look like Mormons. OMG, and the groupies....the groupies.

    Keep it real up in da field, a'ight

    white guys piss me off when they say they love hip-hop that is only acceptable and accessible to white boiz. zion-i, rjd2, people under the stairs. cmon man. if youre gonna listen to the ****, listen to the dudes who are actually in the game. MOP, gang starr, pete rock, redman, de la, dilated, OC, tribe, keith murray. i get it, they have no musical talent. but it still sounds so damn good. better than phoenix or that gay techo crap you subaru boys listen to. hip hop was the punk of the 90s. enjoy this rare banger that you didnt know existed until i blessed you.[video=youtube;s4MkZBBbjxo]http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=s4MkZBBbjxo[/video]

    Also if you have to describe it as some special "art form" that really means it's borderline even music..

    What planet are you from that makes you think taking computer made beats and some real musicians "samples" is hard? This is what's wrong with music now; no originality at all...
