  • Talking to a bunch of Catholics it makes me quite disgusted to know how many of them listen to this sort of music. Oh yeah what's not to like about raw lust and cop-killing? :rolleyes:

    Everyone of course should know my views when it comes to this topic, in that I find this music disgusting examples of gangster and thug lifestyles. It is not surprising that our modern world loves this sort of garbage but why should any Catholic like it?

  • I didn't know either. Hip Hop "music" is incompatible with Catholic values.  It promotes violence in the lowest level, glorify drug crime and vice, objectify women, and it just expresses general unholiness all around.
    If anyone says that true and natural water is not necessary for baptism and thus twists into some metaphor the words of our Lord Jesus Christ" Unless a man be born again of water and the Holy Spirit" (Jn 3:5) let him be anathema.

  • Rap is rancid and a soul that is attracted to rap might be rancid too.

    I could understand listening to rap to get yourself all worked up to fulfill your duty as an executioner or a bombardier getting ready to annihilate a city but a soul that willingly flies to rap?  Rancid.

    Any time Catholics feel a need to ape the world or to placate its members, something is seriously wrong.  The fact that some young sspx priests were discovered listening to this trash is frightening.
     St. Francis Xavier threw a Crucifix into the sea, at once calming the waves.  Upon reaching the shore, the Crucifix was returned to him by a crab with a curious cross pattern on its shell.

  • You need to distinguish.

    There is music with a lot of rhythm, beat, that sounds "rap-ish" but is no more harmful than any pop music. In other words, the worst danger for such music is dissipation or working up the emotions.

    But while it's true that dissipation is a bad thing, to avoid it there are MANY, many things that need to be avoided. Anything that breaks one's recollection after a morning spent at Mass, anything that pulls you down to earth and into worldly affairs is said to be "dissipating". Dissipation is similar to "distraction" and is the opposite of "recollection".

    But then there's so-called "Gangsta Rap" which is what most members in this thread are referring to. Gangsta Rap is the kind not played on the radio, with that black & white "Parental Advisory: Explicit Lyrics" logo on the front cover when you buy it in stores. This genre of "music" involves copious use of swear words and/or blasphemies, boasts, promotion of immoral behavior -- mortal sins against 6th & 9th, as well as drug use, murder, and other law-breaking -- and an extremely degraded outlook on life, women, etc. Women are portrayed as objects for self-gratification. Pride and vainglory are the rule of life.

    Yes, I know a bit too much about this genre.

    (On an unrelated note, did you know that when you smash a CD with a rock, it breaks into many pieces?)

    Anyhow, MC Hammer is an example of regular "stupid but innocent" rap, most of which I would call Hip Hop. Hip Hop is mostly a mid to late 80's phenomenon. All the hip hop I've ever heard is usually pretty dumb, cheesy, and not very attractive at all. Nevertheless, it's not any more "evil" than dumb pop music.

    But a rapper like "Skee-lo" wouldn't be considered Gangsta Rap. It all has to do with the content.

    Or a song like this, with a lot of rap-ish elements to it (it's in Japanese, but you'll have to trust me that there's nothing bad in the lyrics). Japanese works very well for rap, for various reasons.

    Japanese works "well for rap?"  Does rap work "well" for anything, other than for eternal damnation, for example?  

    Does rap work "well" sending people to hell?  


    I have a friend who kept her daughter busy with "hip hop lessons" twice a week for about three years.  She said it was great exercise.  Trouble was, after the girl did all that she became a pagan, abandoned the Church, decided not to get baptized (her mother had deliberately delayed Baptism to let her and her sister decide for herself when she grew up because her father was Jewish so both their daughters are pagans now).

    Bottom line, it might seem to provide for good exercise but what it actually provides is a need for a good exorcism.

    What about the danger of forming one's musical palate with the same junk pop formula that the enemies of Christ use to such devastating spiritual effect?  

    On a personal note, I listened to Boards of Canada regularly in college. And to this very day, when I hear their luciferian garbage, it sounds appealing to me.
