To the editors:

Thanx for publishing Salim Muwakkil's incisive "Pop: I'm Bad, Therefore I Am" [January 22]. Muwakkil's notion that rap is a cognate of bebop is quixotic. I can see the economic need for hip-hop organized sounds; but I'm too much into Ohnedaruth et alia to swallow Salim's specious ideation re rap as music.
