      Not sure if you're replying to me or Andrew, or even the anonymous
      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.
