It was the way you framed the statement that seemed to imply it. I guess I went a little too far in my response, but the problem's still there. I don't want to make it so I'm blaming you personally for it, but a lot of people express similar opinions when talking about hip hop as a genre. They're fine with things like sampling and offensive lyrics in other genres, but if they talk about rap, the standards change.
In your post, you complimented the rap in the game by comparing it in negative terms. Rap seems to be the only genre where it's 'okay' to do this. I can't imagine anyone saying something like "Crush 40 is an example of how rock can sound good without sex and drugs."
I didn't say it did, I was just pointing out that hip hop was a major component of that sound.
Sorry if I came off as accusatory, as it's not about you personally but a wider issue with implications beyond just music. I won't go into them here since it would completely derail the conversation. If you're interested in talking about it you can send me a PM, and if not that's fine too, I just wanted to clarify some things.
