BreakingCyclesBuildingHope's insight:

This was a thought provoking read on the influence that music has on individuals, particularly those in the at-risk community. I personally believe that there may be some truth to this article as some rap/hip hop artists appear to glorify a life of crime. They say, "you are what you eat," but my personal belief is that, "your life has the potential to be steered by the messages that you hear." So listen carefully, and act wisely.
