Is rap music a sin?

I sure hope not, but just wondering, is rap music a sin? I mean, I know there is cussing and stuff, but if you are just listening for the lyrical content and whatnot is it bad? Thanks in advance. I don’t like those smily face guys on the right by the way, they freak me the heck out
