Xavierla 2[edit]

If User:Xavierla 2 starts making the same sort of unsourced changes to articles after the new block expires, just leave a note on my talk page and I will re-block. Xavierla 2 needs to learn to provide sources and discuss when their edits are reverted, or they cannot edit here. Qwyrxian (talk) 11:44, 10 September 2013 (UTC)

Hip hop music category[edit]

Don't you think that disco never gets the full credit it deserves from anyone for being musically very influential as much as punk rock is was? You don't need an Allmusic self-proclaimed expert to tell you that hip hop has pre-disco and disco roots alike, Jamaica, doo-wop, funk breaks blah blah you get the picture. I put a lot of time into research for my claims and I am not sure whether you are aware of it but Good Times (Chic song) is a hip hop song but you just suddenly decided (maybe you are the subject expert, I don't know, in which case I will be just glad to listen to your esteemed lesson on why my opinion is false and take it for a fact) and straight up reverted aforementioned category as if disco had absolutely no connection with hip hop beyond some minor almost coincidental exposure which is wrong. Sincerely, ItsAlwaysLupus (talk) 22:29, 17 May 2014 (UTC)

I believe Disco is very important. But so do I believe that other genres that pre-date and post-date it are important. Of course, Disco was a major influence on hip hop. But Chic's Good Times was a disco song, which was used for Rapper's Delight, which was an early hip hop song. I believe the two genres are separate but related. Hip hop is, of course, also related to other genres. However, Disco's influence should not be negated and it is not - it is listed, quite rightly, as a stylistic origin. If it wasn't, I would be amongst the very first to defend its place. I have never stated that disco and hip hop are unrelated. I'm no "Allmusic self-proclaimed expert". I just lived through the 1970s and 1980s and was very interested in the popular music of those decades. I read a great deal about them. All I ask of Wikipedia is that all statements are reliably sourced.

Hi. Thank you for your recent edits. Wikipedia appreciates your help. We noticed though that when you edited Synthpop, you added a link pointing to the disambiguation page What Is Love?. Such links are almost always unintended, since a disambiguation page is merely a list of "Did you mean..." article titles. Read the FAQ • Join us at the DPL WikiProject.
