What's wrong with that?  What more do you think anyone expects to be?  Who
besides the originators is anything more?  What it gets down to is a song
and an artist.  The artist uses whichever colors are at his disposal.  It's
either enjoyed or it's not by the listener.  You can do rap to classical if
you want to.  Actually you'd probably dig it.  But it only gets down to the
artist wanting to do it and the listener wanting to hear it.  For the
listeners to argue and insult one another or the artist about it, is at
best, pretty silly.
