What about bad schools, run down neighborhoods, single parent households, gangs, prostitution, gun violence, disease. These are the real problems our youth are facing not know damn hip hop.
Everybody talking about how hip hop effects kids in the hood, but they've probably never been in the hood. If hip hop was to blame why aren't rich kids who listen to hip hop, not going to bad schools, living in the slums, selling dope, and killing each other habitually on a daily basis?
There are plenty of people to blame and hip hop artist are at the bottom of the list. If we cleaned up all hip hop tommorrow crime wouldn't stop or get better. Given that violence was prevelant and even worse during the late 70's and eighties before hip hop culture really hit. Fixing hip hop to save our communtities would be like putting a baindaid on 10 bullet wounds.
