yodablack's insight:

It's crazy to believe that Lil Wayne was once the "greatest rapper alive"  now he is being banned from radio stations, I wonder why

Is Hip Hop Destroying Black America?

Is Hip Hop Destroying Black America? | How hip-hop is destroying Black America | Scoop.it
Time and time again, the real decision makers get away with murder while rap artists are projected as the embodiment of everything that is wrong with Hip Hop and young Black males.
yodablack's insight:

I can agree with what the author said,

I also blame the music industry and mainstream media for all of the advertisement of rappers talking about sex, gang violence, and disrespecting women. It is also not always the rapper's fault, he/she thinks what they are doing is right because who is really around to tell them not to.

Chief Keef Laughs at Murder of Lil JoJo

Chief Keef Laughs at Murder of Lil JoJo | How hip-hop is destroying Black America | Scoop.it
The Chicago rapper mocks the death of rival.
yodablack's insight:

The praising of killing in Chicago is just one of the many issues that are present in our communities today. "Many in Chicago are still coming to grips with the shooting death of 18-year-old rapper Lil JoJo, but not all of the gone-too-soon artist's peers are in mourning. Yesterday 17-year-old Chief Keef, who also hails from the Windy City, responded to the news by taking to Twitter to openly mock JoJo before apparently succumbing to an uncontrollable fit of laughter."

The fact that Chief Keef is even broadcasted laughing at the death of another kid in the Chi-town is disrespectful. The broadcast stations and newspapers are showing the negativity of our race everywhere possible.

Hip Hop Is Read (HHIR)
yodablack's insight:

I personally think this is happening, our youth is lacking upstanding role models in their communities. The fact that prisons house artists and send them away for only a year, when a regular person gets 10+ years is an example of how rap music and prisons are intertwined.
