I dislike Renner. I think because of how much I hated The Hurt Locker and how overrated it was.

I thought it was solid but ya, overrated. I don't think that's his fault. I like him when he does interviews and stuff though. He was living in gutted houses while he and a friend bought them, redid them and flipped them during the production of that movie. He had a gym membership because his house didn't have running water.

Yeah, it definitely isn't his fault. But, much like in sports, I give myself a pass on irrationally disliking famous people

oh I miss the Lil Wayne battles I heard all the time teaching in Pittsburgh. Half of them love him the other half say he's terrible. I was just happy to hear that thinking Eminem is the best rapper is reasonable and doesn't make me a racist

You don't become one of the most successful musical artists ever without being talented. Whether you like the guy or not, there is no denying he is talented and has worked very hard. Plain and simple. He's worth about $95M, so I'd say he has done quite well for himself.

Just because you don't like a certain kind of music doesn't mean that everyone else should have that belief.

Music taste is subjective at the end of the day.

That person who got all those "likes" on Facebook for posting the diatribe against Nicki Minaj? To them, it's probably the highlight of their life.

To Nicki Minaj? She is busy inking multi-million dollar sponsorship deals with Pepsi, raking in millions of dollars per year, and boarding a lot of private jets. I think she'll just be fine.

Just because someone is popular (Lil Wayne) doesn't make them any good.

Gangstarr (Guru), Most members of the Wu Tang, Biggie, Eminem, Big L, Nas, AZ, Slug, Biggie, Pac, Big Pun, etc. These are all talented lyricists. Lil Wayne? Lol...Doesn't even belong in the same conversation. I'd even throw Styles P into the conversation of rappers who make Lil wayne look like a joke.

He's mainstream garbage.

People like different music styles... and just because you don't like certain music artists doesn't necessarily mean they're bad. At the end of the day, taste in music is all subjective.

People like different stuff. I really don't know what else to say.

I really don't care how much he's worth, the guy writes absolute **** lyrics and can't sing worth a damn. Here's a portion of his song A Milli

Iíma millionaire
Iím a young money millionaire, tougher than Nigerian hair
My criteria compared to your career just isnít fair
Iíma venereal disease like a menstrual bleed

Threw the pencil and leak the sheet of the tablet in my mind
Cuz I donít write **** cuz I ainít got time
Cuz my seconds, minutes, hours go to the all mighty dollar
And the all mighty power of dat chit cha cha chopper



LIL WAYNE - A MILLI LYRICS http://www.metrolyrics.com/a-milli-lyrics-lil wayne.html#ixzz23A6pPdUn

That's just ****.

I can't believe people are saying Lil Wayne is talented, and that success = talent.

This thread took a swan dive into a pile of horse ****.

If you want to hear good Hip-Hop, this is someone I graduated with and is brilliant. I usually loathe Hip-Hop but this is great.

Lil Wayne is awful. Hip hop has taken such a nosedive in the past decade. It's terrible.

Dang haha I didn't mean to blow up this thread. I used to be a pretty big music snob. I still dislike most mainstream music because many of them aren't talented lyricists or vocalists. Many have co-writers or don't write any of their music. However, as I've aged I realize how pointless of an argument it is so make fun of other people for liking certain music or bashing artists who I think aren't talented.

I never said Lil Wayne is a talented lyricist but he has talent. It takes talent as a performer to make it in the mainstream and stay there. He may not have nearly as intricate, intelligent, or impressive lyrics as many underground hip hop artists, but it's not like he is a one hit wonder or acclaimed fame through youtube like the Call Me Maybe girl for example.

Most mainstream pop music is very much about image and flashy, easy to digest lyrics and sounds. I don't care for it but I understand why people like it and I guess I just don't see the point in ****ing about it. What would be better would be to show people good pop music with meaningful lyrics, messages, etc.

I also used to get pissed when bands I liked made it to the mainstream. I'd call them sell outs and move on. But now I see that is the only way "good music" from my perspective gets to other people. Take for example the band Fun. I have been listening to Nate Reuss (lead singer) for nearly 10 years. I loved the Format (his old band) and used to go to shows with 30-40 people. He put out 4 awesome records IMO and finally, because of a Glee cover, they are all over the radio (the song is "We Are Young").

I still find myself getting annoyed when people are like "OMG I love this new band Fun." but what good does that do? Music means different things to different people. We should embrace what we like and educate others on finding new bands or artists that promote meaningful subject matter.

As far as the role model thing goes I definitely agree that most pop artists are bad role models. They should be held accountable, but it's really up to parents to educate their children on what's important. I know when I'm a dad some day, I sure as hell won't be letting my son or daughter walk around singing Keisha or Lil Wayne.
