I don’t know a soul who doesn’t listen to music regularly. Music is an interesting topic, because it’s completely unique to everyone. Anyone can have their own preferences and it can often be seen as a safe space, or something people can turn to if they need a little escape from reality. To me, music is exactly that. It is something I can look to if I need a break from the real world, or if I need a small distraction, or even if I need to focus. There are a few music groups and bands that I do like listening to regularly. One of these groups is $uicideboy$. This is a group that consists of two cousins who do basically everything on their own. They are a heavy/shadow rap duo who makes a lot of loud, aggressive, and sometimes depressing music. I’m not quite sure what it is exactly that draws me towards their music, but I love the uniqueness in their work. Another rapper who makes loud and aggressive music is Night Lovell. The thing about him is that he has a very deep voice which almost echoes in my head when I listen. It’s quite entertaining. There’s not many groups that I tend to listen to specifically, but there are genres that I like. As said above is dark rap. But other genres I like include 60s/70s/80s/90s alternative rock, early 2000s throwbacks, and even Lo-Fi. I got into the alternative rock by my parents. They would always play that kind of music while I grew up, and it really grew onto me. I don’t want to say that I grew up in the wrong generation because that’s not true. There are things that I’d much rather keep around now that weren’t a thing in those days. I’ve been told I have an old soul, which I guess is the closest thing to that. The early 2000s music is the stuff I grew up with, and the feeling of nostalgia and the memories that come with some songs are often nice and it’s enjoyable. However, as many people will say otherwise, no one likes all kinds of music. There’s always an artist or genre that doesn’t appeal to everyone. In my case, I never really got into modern day rap. And though there are a few artists that I enjoy, for the most part rap hasn’t been a big part of my life. I feel like it all sounds virtually the same, and they all say the same things. They rap about sex and drugs, which puts me in a thought process that persuades me that they don’t put any thoughts or emotion into their work. There are people who will disagree, and I know that I haven’t listened to every single rap song, so I don’t know if there’s a few that I may like. However, from what I heard, that is my opinion. This is part of the reason why I believe music is an interesting topic. No one has the exact same taste and that’s something that everyone can have for themselves.
