Now, don't get me wrong, I have my favorites, and I may put my favorites in a status update after some replies but, I was born in 1989, meaning I grew up in the 1990's. The 1990's were based around boy bands, and the 2 most popular ones, are no longer together of course. I'm a HUGE metalhead, my favorite band of all time being Metallica (I know, don't get on me about what they did, I still like them). So, I guess I just don't really know much about rap and hip hop to understand it but, can you explain to me the appeal of it, if you listen to it?

I agree that it probably can't really be explained. Everyone has different taste in music, and as you said yourself that is generally based on how and when we grow up.
Personally, I like rap/hip hop because I think songs tell more a story than other forms of music. Eminem for example, he was probably the main reason I first started listening to rap/hip hop. He songs can be very emotive. This isn't obviously true of all songs in the genre, but I think a lot of people generally fall into a genre and stick to it.1

Dope beats... I'm a sucker four 808s
Relative reliability (outside of the fuckboy rappers like drake who pretends to be hard and shit)
It also depends on the style and rapper, too. Like, I like ti cause he's actually real. I like lil' Dicky cause he's hilarious as shit. I like Kanye's old shit cause he actually had dope lyrics. I like drakes music when he doesn't rap... Counterintuitive, I know. He just annoys me, but he has sick beats
It just my preference. I think metal sounds like shit... No offense. Just not my thing0
