    you see our brothers and sisters are basically being brainwashed by these ''gangsta'' music videos, sisters think it's alright to be a HO like nicki minaj, the kids look up these figures man
    Again, YOU may not consume this stuff but someone is. It's evident by the sales or DL's. I do agree with that there is a poisoning of communities. Nothing ever seems to happen until it starts to flood the suburban areas. We still don't have a clear cut answer on how to fix it though. The prevailing attitude even on FP is "I don't want to be preached to, I want to party!". Hip Hop has been international for many, many years now and with the internet it grew into the beast that it is. There is no taming her now. There may be a few people still trying but there will never be a black conscious era again. Why? Speak of anything Pro-black and people now feel as if you are being racist. So each individual will have to seek and find the music they love to listen to. Purchase and support the music that has a positive message and the record execs will have to follow. They don't care about communities they only care about MONEY! If drugs, guns, violence, sex, etc...are what sell records that is what they are going to put out. Supply and demand. In the meantime more kids, young men will die just for a rep.

    Absolutely a symptom but when do we say enough is enough? When does the consumer take ownership of their part of the blame? This is why Ice Cubes - Us was and IS so important. Sh!t fed some knowledge but had the gangsta sound so people would consume it.

    Ice Cube - US Lyrics

    Could you tell me who released our animal instinct?
    Got the white man sittin' there tickled pink.
    Laughin' at us on the avenue
    Bustin' caps at each other after havin' brew
    We can't enjoy ourselves
    Too busy jealous... Of each other's wealth
    Commin' up is just in me
    But the Black community is full of envy
    Too much back-stabbin'
    While I look up the street I see all the japs grabbin'
    Every vacant lot in my neighborhood
    Build a store, and sell their goods
    To the county of sips (?)
    You know us po niggas: nappy hair and big lips?
    Four or five babies on your crotch
    And you expect Uncle Sam to help us out?
    We ain't nothin' but porchmonkeys
    To the average bigot, redneck honky
    You say comin' up is a must
    But before we can come up, take a look at US

    [Verse Two:]

    And all y'all dope-dealers...
    Your as bad as the po-lice- cause ya kill us
    You got rich when you started slangin' dope
    But you ain't built us a supermarket
    So when can spend our money with the blacks
    Too busy buyin' gold an' Caddilacs
    That's what ya doin' with the money that ya raisin'
    Exploitin' us like the Caucasians did
    For 400 years - I got 400 tears- for 400 peers
    Died last year from gang-related crimes
    That's why I got gang-related rhymes
    But when I do a show ta kick some facts
    Us Blacks don't know how ta act
    Sometimes I believe the hype, man
    We're messin' up ourselves and blame the white man
    But don't point the finger you jiggaboo
    Take a look at yourself ya dumb nigga you
    Pretty soon hip-hop won't be so nice
    No Ice Cube, just Vannilla Ice
    And yall sit and scream and cus
    But there's no one ta blame- but US

    [Verse Three:]

    US ... will always sing the blues
    'Cause all we care about is hairstyles and tennis shoes
    But if ya step on mine ya pushed a button
    "Cause I'll beat you down like it ain't nothin'
    Just like a beast
    But I'm the first nigga ta holler out {PEACE, BLACK MAN}
    I beat my wife and children to a pulp
    When I get drunk and smoke dope
    Got a bad heart condition
    Still eat hog-mogs an' chitlin's
    Bet my money on the dice and the horses
    Jobless, so I'm a hope for the armed forces
    Go to church but they tease us
    Wit' a picture of a blue-eyed Jesus
    They used to call me Negro
    After all this time I'm still bustin up the chiffarobe
    No respect and didn't know it
    And I'm havin' more babies than I really can afford
    In jail 'cause I can't pay the mother
    Held back in life because of my color
    Now this is just a little summary
    Of US, but yall think it's dumb of me
    To put a mirror to ya face, but trust
    Nobody gives a **** about...

    Again the internet got the youngins gased up thinkin they can get out of pocket. Rappers talkin that tough sh!t better be prepared to be tested once they leave the safety of their homes (computers). When you go to do that first show it better be in a nice and safe location. Don't go to the hood or to a hood club on some G sh!t and if you do be prepared to throw hands or squeeze off.

    Cant blame it on the music. Y'all sound like politicians. It's the environment these kids are in. No one in these communities values life including police and detectives. The politicians only do something when the NUMBERS look bad. Police only act when it spills into SAFE neighborhoods.

    These kids are only rapping there lifestyle they aren't causing it with there raps. Rap and basketball is there outlet. It's there bid to get clean money or get money at all. And the lifestyle itself kills them.

    We could end rap tomorrow and these kids would still be dead. Only difference is we wouldn't know there names or there twitter handles. Rap goes in cycles. Right now it's ignorant and senseless yet one day we will see the people from these same areas being the hood CNN again

    Music, movies and video games have influence on kids, hell people in general. Getting rid of Hip Hop would solve nothing because the problem is far beyond music has been for a very long time. Parents can't whoop kids these days in fear of going to jail...yeah thats a problem in itself. My point was that some kids need to be more real in their life situation. Now Chicago is crazy and it may not take much to get your wig split there but those in places that are rappin about sh!t they know nothin about...THEY need to keep it on the net. Also, just complaining about the music will never solve anything because until the sales drop out of the bottom of gangsta rap labels will continue to push it. It is only about money no body cares about what is really going on in the streets until it hits their neighborhood. People in Aurora, Colorado or Sandy Hook never gave a fvck about gun violence in Chicago or any where else until it hit home. My bet they sat in their homes watching TV talking about "That's why we moved to this community", then...well we know what happened.

    Here is a good article.

    Quotes from the article:

    "Statistics suggest that as a young, black man, you have a greater chance of being shot and killed in Philadelphia than you would have if you were a soldier serving in the conflicts in Afghanistan or Iraq," Charles said. "That's absurd to me."

    "A kid growing up in the 'hood has different expectations than a kid growing up in Newtown," said Bocanegra, who works with ex-offenders at the faith-based nonprofit Community Renewal Society in Chicago. "We have worldwide attention on this tragic event in Connecticut, but it shows us how we value life, and it's a shame murder isn't treated the same across the board."

    "I hurt the same way you hurt. Murder shouldn't occur, and I say that as someone who took a life," Bocanegra said. "All lives are precious, and one is not worth more than the other."

    The indifference toward urban slayings often comes down to "victim blaming," said Rich, author of "Wrong Place, Wrong Time: Trauma and Violence in the Lives of Young Black Men."
