David Crosby, the co-founder and vocalist of both The Byrds and Crosby, Stills & Nash, upset his fans who like rap music by calling it ‘bad poetry mouthed inexpertly over bad tracks’ while answering to one of his followers who defended the genre.
The iconic rock veteran and quite active Twitter user, David Crosby, who usually tweets about his musician friends, the current political status of the US, and his health issues, has taken the platform to express his actual thoughts about something highly different this time.
Crosby has reacted to the recent tweet of his fan who requested him to don’t be the boomer guy who hates rap. The follower of Crosby, whose name is Jen, defined rap as an endlessly versatile and incredible genre ripe with genius.
However, David Crosby responded by saying that he really doesn’t like rap music. Crosby described the genre as bad poetry mouthed inexpertly over bad tracks of other people’s music on melody. He said it has neither harmony nor poetry.
Here’s what the fan of David Crosby said to him:
“Croz: I’m a life-long fan, as I’ve stated several times before, & I don’t expect you to take my opinion seriously for that reason or any other, but please don’t be the boomer guy who hates rap. It’s an endlessly versatile and incredible genre ripe with genius.”
Crosby responded as:
“I’m fine with you liking it but I don’t. Really. Bad poetry mouthed inexpertly over bad tracks of other people’s music on melody. No harmony. No poetry. Gets no me.”
