20. Hmm.
"I personally don't find Rap to be Music at all."

Fortunately, musicians disagree with you.

"What music there is, is stole... ah, sampled from other musicians."

It's all property of the muse.

"Rappers don't sing or play instruments, they rhyme."

Many rappers sing and play instruments. If you're going to talk about something, at least learn a little bit about it first, otherwise you'll make yourself look foolish.

"What I don't see is any "Classic Rap". Rap is almost 30 years old, shouldn't there be stations playing Rap from the 70s and 80s. Are there people in there 40s out there playing the Rap of their youth, the way I play the Beatles and the Who?"

Oh, it's out there. Classic rap stations, or popular rap stations that devote, say, their lunch hour or evening commute to classic rap. Again, you might want to look into it a little more next time.
