GREAT post. I was talking to a friend of mine last weekend about Tupac (BET was showing some doc about him) and how he was not all that he's been made out to be. I've been meaning to do a post on that for the past week, but I haven't had time.

Shoot, I was only 20/21 when Tupac was hot, so of course he seemed like a god to me, but now that I'm 30...not so much, but it seems that some folks my age, still can't seem to get past that silliness of their youth.

Kudos for writing this post and pointing us towards some other great sources. I'll check them out tomorrow.

Spot on. I don't care for gangsta rap, and hip-hop isn't my bag... but you are absolutely correct about symptoms v. issues.

It's all about distraction.

I find it sad that some hip hop artists have become parodies of their earlier career (Flavor Flav and Public Enemy use to deride in their songs the thing he is now most well known for).

I couldn't agree with you more. Hip Hop is not gangsta rap. Sex in the media sells everything from sandwiches to cars and violence sells commercials during the local news at least. To single out Hip Hop is absurd.

I remember reading an article a few years ago that claimed the music most people commit suicide to is not rap, metal, or country. It's classical. No one's talking about that because classical is for cultured [suicidal] people, while hip hop is for ghetto folk.

You are a Hip Hop apologist. You are completely ignoring the impact of a genre that drives a culture of under achievement, violence, misogyny, porn, and crime.


It's like saying "a little cancer is okay"

An entire generation is being consumed by this. Instead of parsing words wo surgically extract the "good" HIp Hop from all of the junk, The whole genere should be pushed out of the mainstream. The stakes are too high if we don't

Slow down a bit sister, might I suggest you re- read the post and read other post on my blog to get a better idea of what I am an “apologist” for, because it isn’t Hip Hop.

My assertion is NOT that Hip Hop or should I say Gangsta Rap is NOT a problem. My assertion is that violence in American society is bigger than Hip Hop, and that we need to look at the bigger picture in regard to violence if we ever are going to deal with the problem.

As far as pushing Hip Hop out of the mainstream, I am not a Hip Hop artist so I really wouldn’t care if it was, music goes in cycles I expect this one to end sooner or later.

Gem,

I'm not sure of your age but did you also think rock 'n' roll was the devil's music as many did years ago? And I guess you were on board with some Black intellects that believed jazz was for savages while classical music was for the more refined (code for wannabe).
I think you misunderstood BA's post. Slow down and breathe.
