I think we need a music sociologist to weigh in on this one, but from my uneducated perspective, music seems to evolve from, or is a response to, ones cultural surroundings. Latin music is different from African music. Rap music is different than country music, and so on. Music is different around the world.
Regarding Anoop + rap....maybe a more clear example is blues music which is a type of music born from slavery. Any middle- to upper-middle class person (white, black, blue or purple!) who has wealth and most importantly freedom will never sell me on a blues song the way someone who has been beaten down would. It just won't fly with me. And in a way, and in my very humble opinion, it is somewhat offensive that a person of privelage should even try.
Just my 2 cents.
And, don't get me wrong. I actually like Anoop, but I stand by original remarks that he should drop the rapper-wannabe persona.
