You are probably correct - - - I have a hard time understanding what they are talking about so it's probably a "serious communication break down" on my part. However, I look for a chord progression and melody of some kind when I'm listening to music and that could be my problem also.
I also relate to what you're saying about not playing your type of Rap Musice on the Radio - - - - when I was growing up in the 50's they went so far as to "BAN" Rock and Roll
but it didn't last long because the teenagers were the ones that bought the records and their voice was heard loud and clear.
