original poster... but no one is dissing rap music. As one of the
first music podcasters ever, I played rap and hip-hop artists like
Supafloss, Crazy 88, The Netwerx, Andrew Murret, Argyle Pimps, and
Zearle on my DIY Endeavors Podcast. In addition to damn near every
other genre of music.
What I was dissing (and I'm gonna speak for Andrew, here, sorry) was
the use of all-caps, which reeks of unprofessionalism and gets you
laughed at no matter what the message is.
And because I like puns, I made one that plays on gangsta rap. Don't
presume that means I equate all rap with gangsta. Listen to the range
of artists I listed above and you'll find geek rap, socialist
revolutionary rap, jazz rap and so on.
Don't presume, please.

As do misspellings, the misuse of words, and poor grammar. The original
note was full of these problems.
If you want to look professional, have someone with a good command of
English proofread your copy before you send it out.
