I Love Rap Music
From Rap’s humble beginnings as music African American slaves made to make life on the hot plantations better to today’s Multi-Million dollar moguls Rap has sure come a long way. I love Rap Music. There is no other way to put it. Everyone has a right to his own likes and dislikes of a particular music genre. That is not to say that I don’t like other types of music. I just prefer Rap music.
One reason that I love Rap Music is because it elevates my concentration when I am working out. When I am trying to surpass my personal best in any exercise, all I have to do is listen to a motivational type of Rap Music and I am able to focus better. I remember a time when I was attending a High School track practice. I was at a plateau with my leg press, all of a sudden I hear a Rap tune on the radio, and I was able to lift ten pounds more than my previous personal best leg press. I knew at that point that Rap Music was a friend that I would hold near and dear for many years to come.
Another reason I love Rap Music is because Rap is very easy to dance to. The beats and lyrics are also very catchy. While I am dancing, Rap Music helps put me in a mood to have fun. It is amazing how many people were drawn together in unison just to groove to the new Will Smith Rap song “Men in Black”. Rap Music also helps me to get closer to attractive woman that I may see at club. These days there aren’t many clubs I go to that does not play Rap Music. I guess I can say that Rap Music has a conductive force. First, it help’s my mood, and in turn is easy to dance to, that helps me maybe even meet an attractive woman. What a deal!
A big reason that I love Rap Music is the fact that I compose my own personal tunes. I have written over a hundred songs. For example, I wrote a tune called; “My time will come”. This song deals with the journey of life. It also includes some of my successes and failures. I have been an amateur artist for about ten years. I compose for a hobby and just try to nurture my talent. Hopefully I will bloom one day.
Lastly, I love Rap Music because of the inner connection I feel with some of the lyrics in Rap Music. Music in general has the ability to make people come together. With all the racism and destruction in the world Rap Music can be an equal platform that all people can enjoy and have in common. With Rap Music Race and Gender don’t matter; all that does matter is the love and dedication to the art. The famed late great Rhythm and Blues singer Marvin Gaye once said, “Music is my heart and soul, more precious than gold”. I couldn’t agree more with these words more.
