To me, to say
I am fed up with ... does not mean quite the same as I cannot bear ... or I cannot tolerate ...

I am fed up with that loud music means it annoys you,whereas I cannot bear that loud music means you are going to do something about it like kill the neighbour. Which of these is nearer to no soporto (if you detect a difference?)

Interesting in that you have to watch almost 4 minutes of it until you hear the title.

Interesting. In my mind, I agree there's a difference between the two ("Fed up" verses "cannot bear/tolerate") but to me it would be that to be "fed up" means it's something that you usually don't mind, but there's been too much of it. "Cannot bear/tolerate", on the other hand, gives me the impression it's something you just don't like at all.

You are right. They are related abut they are not exactly the same.

"No soporto el rap" no es lo mismo que "estoy hasta la coronilla con el rap"

Couldn't you translate "no soporto el rap" as "I can't stand rap" ? (ie you hate it, but you can't do anything about it in reality)
