So I am a pretty smart student, (33 on ACT), and I attend a rigorous and top ranked high school, but I also listen to rap music. I'm talking Lil Wayne, 2 Chainz, Luda, Drake, you name it. A lot of my friends find it rather weird that I am as smart as I am and listen to such dumb music, and there are even studies that suggest that listening to rap music makes you dumb. I don't listen to rap music to please anybody else, something about it just gets me in the groove. If I were to force myself to stop listening to it, do you think it would have any measurable impact on my grades, or should I just not care?
EDIT: After posting this I realized that this is a really dumb question, but I would still love to hear others input on the matter.
