He ruins Chrono Trigger music. Never let this deranged psycho in.

Wiz Khalifa sounds like Arabic slang for a drunk man pissing, which is exactly what you'd have to be to enjoy this wretched excuse for an artist.

Give me more Bo Diddley instead, please!

I'll agree with you, Zach. Most rappers today are talentless hacks, but that dosen't mean that all rap is bad. De La Soul, 2pac, Massive Attack and A Tribe Called Quest are some really great rap artists.

By the way, I'm so sorry that I haven't been able to listen to your radio show.

As far as rap goes, I enjoy the following:

Grandmaster Flash and the Furious Five
Afrika Bambaataa
The Beastie Boys
Tone Loc
The Fat Boys

As you can tell, my interest in rap is restricted to the 1980s. Much like punk, rap was a fascinating experiment in its formative years, but it has stagnated because of repetition and obnoxious politics. I'm no enemy of rap/hip-hop, but the majority of it just doesn't interest me. I get more of a thrill learning about old rhythm & blues singers and new wave groups from the 1950s and 1980s, respectively.

My other interests include:

Movies (I'm currently mourning the passing of Ray Harryhausen, one of the giants of special effects)
Video games

Animals are really awesome, Zach. This would be a great thing for us to talk about sometime.
Lastly, do you see me as a friend or a brother in rock?

BTW, my favorite animal is the killer whale.

Wiz, along with Kendrick Lamar, Chance the Rapper, and 2Chainz is just another example of a modern rapper who can't create anything worth listening to without gouging your ears and wondering what happened to Hip-Hop. This is a severe NO... Look underground for real rap, the only modern Mainstream rap artist I see having a shot at the hall is Macklemore, and he still has underground roots.
