NFL players are young and they too like the music of their generation. Rap is the dominant voice of popular culture, and that highly sought after demographic that ends at age 35 prefers it to any other music.
Old fogey, or no, I don't consider rap "junk" myself, as hip hop got popularized across tha nation when I was in my 20's. I probably love Outkast as much as the players do. Tho I'm pretty old school in that area, because I've still heard nothing more compelling than A Tribe Called Quest.
Reading your post make me feel old. But hey at 41 I love to play games with my kids and I just thought that there was way to much rap. I don't guess there is anything wrong with it as long as the lyrics are good but I can't understand them anyway. Just not my preference in music. Just wondered why there was such and enphasis on that particular style of music. And man, I am out of the target demographics already. Does that mean the telemarketers will stop calling me now?
