“Music is like candy—you throw away the rappers”

"Music is like candy—you throw away the rappers” is a jocular line that has been printed on many images. (Candy has “wrappers.") “Music is like candy; Throw out the ‘rappers’” was a comment submitted to the Des Moines (IA) Register in September 2005.

Rap music fans, of course, do not agree with the one-liner.


22 September 2005, Des Moines (IA) Register, “Your 2 cents worth,” IowaLife, pg. E3:
Music is like candy; Throw out the “rappers.”

To the person who said, “Music is like candy, throw out the rappers”: They listen to rap in Clive?
