Sure, it's not the happiest music on the block, but who cares? It is what it is. And seriously... cry me a river. If your average joe can't figure out that what rap stars say isn't the way things are or the way things should be, then we've got bigger problems than music, don't you think?Originally posted by UnregdRegd
Rap too often has become the genre of dispair. Why is there so little idealistic rap out there about how guns, gangs, drugs, violence, and misogyny can be put behind us as society progresses? The worst of this genre completely embraces the stereotypical "gangsta" image, treating women as "ho's" who should obey their "pimps," glorifying indifference or even violence towards fellow human beings, and so on.
I admit that Eminem and some of the rappers have quite a bit of musical talent, but they still rap of dispair.
