I suggest you look at some other artists, like Mos Def, KRS-1, Common, etc, and not base your opinion on gangster rap. Otherwise, you're making a generalization.
I actually used to listen to rap and most of those artists do tend to be quite serious about changing what wrong with this country and bringing awareness to the problems of the ghetto. BUT, they still idolize and promote the power of the drug trade in the black neighborhoods. Their styles of expression my be somewhat artistic(even that is up to discussion) but still hold the "street" persona on a pedestal. This won't put books in the classrooms of the inner cities and definetly wont put food on their table(but definetly their own).

Yes, and I did state that some do differently themed stuff. But you still haven't answered my question.
Obviously, no. But if you think rap is just about that, you dont understand rap, and there is a good amount of rap that isnt about what you listed.

I dont recall you saying 'some do differently themed stuff" anywhere, and theres no need for you to talk to me the way you are.

Hmm no reason? Your pulling your usual routine of finding one thing and not budging or considering that you may not have seen another fact. Hey, I'm only reciprocating the way you are talking to me.

Listen binzing, you made a blanket statement. I showed you that your generalization was not true. So, you can sit here and try to insult me till the cows come home if it makes you happy, but its not going to have an effect on me. Its quite sad, and I expect more from you.

"They could atleast rap about the problems of life and try to fix them, like reggae. (and yes, I know some do, but not many)"

Seeing as you can pull things out of places. This is what I meant about not all rappers being gangsters or having a negative message.

Many of them DO rap about just that binzing. Please, take the time to listen to rap before you talk about something you know very little about.

Yeah cyrus, if you think I am just the nerdy white kid who is all talk and has no perspective of the rap scene, look at undercvr, he has made some good points that you havent even tried to negate.

Please, dont put words into my mouth.

I think your acting very immature right now.

Im not going to defend every aspect of rap on a physics forums. If you really care about it that much, write a letter to some rappers.

Ok, scratch the "nerdy white kid" part and you get damn near exactly what you said. Maturity, mature people would not only attack others but actually state there point of view on the subject.

I never said anything about your race. Not even close. On your second point your exactly right. You should take your own advice.

WTF do you expect Cyrus, its on Youtube? Yeah I know I don't know every minute detail of rap as well as your all-knowingness, but I know enough to have my opinion, one that is supported by many other people. So what is your stand? That drugs, gang violence, and the promotion of illiteracy (see spellings of "artists" names and "song" lyrics) are good, oh also the demeaning of women?
Seriously bro, what the hell do you have against me every time you post these days? I dont post nasty stuff like this at you. You're a smart guy, dont post things like this.

Hence me saying to scratch the white and nerdy part! Comprehensions skills anyone?
"On your second point your exactly right. You should take your own advice." Umm, what do you call explaining myself and my point of view?

I have nothing against you, only the fact that you never seem to take a step back and consider that maybe YOU are wrong.

I did not make a generalization, YOU did.

A rapper is not a politician. His or her job is not to sing about going to college. Music is an expression, and for them its an expression of the hardship of their situation. Why would a guy rap about going to college and becoming a professional if he did not have the chance to do that?

But, you wont state what you think of the downside of rap.

The downside of rap is when children listen to it. Go to any club that plays rap music (most all do), you dont see guys walking up to women and saying 'hey *****, hows it going you ho?' 'lets go shoot some people and sell drugs on the street'. Do you think people sell drugs because they hear about it in rap? Or do you REALLY think they sell drugs becuase their parents have no money, and they live in a tough neighborhood and know they wont be going to college, so the only way to make a better life is to sell drugs. Here is another hint for you, most of these kids live in poor places, and attend terrible public schools. It does not take much to see why people would rap about these kinds of things.

Also, there are plenty of songs about doing tons of drugs that are rock or alternative. But im not going to generalize those songs to all of rock and alternative, now am I?

You guys are just hating. I'm cranking those triple sigma boys right now. Taking n to infinity over bounds that form a trinity.

That was pretty awesome. I wish some teachers would teach like that to make it fun. I love math to begin with though :)

I don't like rap, either. Even aside from that, their choreography was subpar and they had no sense of style.

Now, this girl can make a Big Bang.
