Is Rap Music a Bad Influence?

AaronNoe's insight:

Many people believe that rap music is nothing but a bad influence to the youth. This link provides points to back that statement up.

 

Pros & Cons: Teens are usually easily influenced by anything they see. I can see why people would think that violence in music could be corrupting the youth. However, i have been listening to violent rap music since i was six. To this day, i do not go down the street looking to fight someone or try to rob something. Rap music is only entertainment like how books and movies are. It depends on the person if they are going to try and do what they hear about in a song. Whatever actions they do is their choice and they must face the consequences. Rap music is used as a scapegoat because the parents of America don't want to admit that they simply have a bad child, they want to blame it on something else because they cant face reality.

AaronNoe's insight:

This article shows both sides of the topic. It states that hip hop used to be very poetic, but now it has been watered down with the fascination to gang violence and drugs. The truth is you can't put all of rap music into one category and say that it is violent. There are too many different types of rap music that convey too many different emotions.
