Is Rap Acceptable In Your Sex Mix?

Some rappers happen to be thoughtful, intelligent people. Every Monday (that isn't a national holiday) Rocks Off will have some of them here discussing issues relevant to their culture.

This Week's Panel: Chuckway, Renzo, Kyle Hubbard

Not Invited: Our wife, who thinks rap is unacceptable during sex, as well as while riding in the car, dancing at a club, and just life in general.

This Week's Prompt: So we've got a question this week that a reader passed along -actually, he's passed it along every week for the past three weeks. And since it looks like he's going to continue to do so for the rest of time until it gets answered, we figured we'd just put it to you all so he goes away. Here's an excerpt from his email:

"My girlfriend gets mad at me because I like to listen to rap music while we do it. I don't understand this. Rap music is beautiful. Can you ask the [Round Table] panel their opinion on this? Is it okay for me to listen to rap during intercourse? What about if it's something relevant like Scarface's "Fuck Faces"? Please help."

Easy enough: Is it okay to listen to rap during sex? If so, which artists? If not, which artists are excluded?
