Can not stand hip hop too bad this type of music is popular. Right up there with Gangnam style...

I usually find that the people who complain the most about something do it because they have no skill in it themselves. Complainers complain about that things they cant do well.

That is true for all situations!

Hip Hop and other music in that genre is just as valid as any other type of music. The same inventors of hip hop also invented rock, jazz, R&B and etc.......

Eh, the kids seem to like it and it's harmless. Cracks me up every time, seeing the college students dancing in front of the library windows. My only gripe is when they put it into movies. Was going to see The Great Gatsby till I learned that it's an ALL hip-hop soundtrack. No thanks.

To be honest i am averse to most hip hop music. Though in this case seeing youngsters happy and using their energy in good way is great to see. I would much rather one of my kids did this in their spare time than watching television or playing video games
