On the Assertion that Opera Was the Rap of Yesterday

I much prefer to think that disco was the rap of yesterday.

Neither was the rap of yesterday.

Rap is Rap, urban gobbleygook for the most part. It is in a class of it's own. While it has social merit (some but not all of it) it is a stretch, he'll, it's a leap to classify it as music.

Puccini, Beethoven and Verdi didn't go down in a hail of gunfire like Freaky Tah, Soulja Slim and Scott La Rock...for starters.

Smetana and Mussorgsky both did some banging, I believe.
