I get the "no rap songs" rule,but cutting out rap verses from a song?Thats just silly.Especially in this case.

People disliking rap is kind of weird.For example,I dislike most of the genre.Even Lupe Fiasco,who I think is a good artist.I like what he is saying,its just how he is saying it that does not resonate with me at all.And I have absolutely no idea why I like few rap songs while disliking the rest,because they are all so diverse.I like some joky rap songs,like Weird Al parodies,I like some Eminem song,and I like a couple of Hopsins songs.With other genres,I can usually point out to what feels right to me,which sounds I like,which I dislike.But with rap,its basically a dice roll for me.

Hah.Now I wonder what they did with some prodigy songs back in the day.Specifically fire starter and smack my bitch up.
