Why do you think RAP music has been so popular for so long?

Why do you think RAP music has been so popular for so long?

I like American music history and most types of American music is popular for 10 years, or about a generation. Rag, Big Band and original rock and roll like Chuck Berry and Elvis were popular for around 10 years.

For this discussion I define rock and roll as Elvis stuff and "rock" as post 1965 or so, after the British Invasion. Rock has lasted for a few decades but it doesn't dominate like it did in the 60-80s.

Rap started in about 1980 and new-ish rap stars are still popular and famous.

I think it's popular because it's so simple and everyone thinks they could be a rapper. It doesn't take any musical skill with an instrament (practice, practice, practice) and everyone can talk...but few of us can sing.
