My 13 year old listens to a lot of rap. I think most of what he listens to is closer to cr*p.
We live in MN, so we get a fair amount of Brother Ali, Atmosphere, POS, Dessa, etc on the radio, but he doesn't care for that. The issue (for me) is he likes samples with more "hooks" but he doesn't listen to the lyrics. So, can anyone recommend an artist with decent, almost pop hooks with decent lyrics?
I'm not averse to the language in the songs, just the stupidity of the lyrics in the songs he listens to. I'd post the names of some of his favorites, but he has his iPod with him.
