    Rap is not music.
    Rap is a sin to good music and should be banned from the face of the earth.
    The lyrics do not matter.

    saying rap is music is blasphemy to good music.
    You may call it "sound", and you may love it. Nowadays you can find people loving lots of strange stuff. But never call it music.
    I'm not even talking in the negative social aspect of rap, the incentives to violence, etc. I'm just talking in the musical sense. It's rubbish.

    Where the music takes you is what you need to keep an eye on, if
    it promotes in your evil such as the desires that lead to killing and
    hatred and so on, what do you think? The beat it by itself or style is
    meaningless as far as good and evil are concern in my opinion, you
    don't have a good 3/4 or evil 3/4 or the types of the instruments that
    cause someone to do good or evil things.

    What if that music leads you to dancing with the opposite sex which then leads to sexual thoughts?

    Then the problem is with you and not the music.

    Does the music cause you to hate or kill?
    Consider this parallel with the eating of food. The same principle I think can be applied to listening to music.

    Mark 7:18 And he saith unto them, Are ye so without understanding also? Do ye not perceive, that whatsoever thing from without entereth into the man, it cannot defile him;
    19 Because it entereth not into his heart, but into the belly, and goeth out into the draught, purging all meats?
    20 And he said, That which cometh out of the man, that defileth the man.
    21 For from within, out of the heart of men, proceed evil thoughts, adulteries, fornications, murders,
    22 Thefts, covetousness, wickedness, deceit, lasciviousness, an evil eye, blasphemy, pride, foolishness:
    23 All these evil things come from within, and defile the man.

    How so? What is wrong with this? Why can't sexual thoughts be holy thoughts?

    There are a lot of things that can lead you to sexual thoughts, just
    as watching a baseball game could lead you to wanting to do harm
    to an umpire, that too is sinful if you think about it. Some times you
    can avoid those things, some times not, they are just going to
    happen, You can set yourself up for sin, and is that your fault if you do
    something with that intent, or the thing you knew that would put you in
    that frame of mind, and position to act on it?

    Question: Why are Baptists opposed to pre-marital sex?

    Answer: It might lead to dancing.
