I love rap songs but it depends...

Some rap songs nowadays have this what we call "double meanings" which are so profane but I've heard just recently a rap song originally composed by one of my students before and it was good. The lyrics are wholesome so I think I should love rap songs again. Do you agree with my thought about listening to rap songs?

I only have one rap album and it is by Shaquille O'Neal. I actually like quite a few of the songs on it, believe it or not. My dad got it for me back when I was a kid and Shaquille O'Neal was my favorite athlete (outside of the race car drivers I grew up on, that is). Even my cousin who was a Michael Jordan fan (rivals, haha!) had to play it non-stop when he came over! Other than that, the only rap song I ever liked was Coolio's "Gangsta Paradise." I also like dance songs that have rap sections in them. Here's an example: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=iR9Q8J1wUYU A friend once gave me a Christian rap album but I haven't listened to it yet. It looks interesting! So I suppose I am like you in a way. I don't like all rap, but I like some, depending on what it is. I don't mind if it has a rebellious streak to it (heck, I've always had a rebellious side!) but I cannot stand anything obscene where they think they have to use the F-word every other word to make a point.
