Rap is one of the most misogynistic forms of music. Rap stars rap about murder, rape, and other violence.
Yet, new social media platforms such as Instagram, Snapchat, and Twitter are helping to kill this violent culture. Rap stars are posting their music and new pictures to share with their followers, and it’s having a positive impact on music and social media.
The main reason why this is a bad influence is that rap music is filled with violent and negative messages. The music’s message is so bad that it makes rap music, not the type of music that should be playing in the background while you are having a family dinner.
Rap music has been accused of being racist on several occasions. The rapper Eminem has been accused of being racist many times by the media.
His songs and lyrics have been accused of containing racist and sexist lyrics. Despite Eminem’s attempts to clarify his views on the issue, his image has taken a beating.
Eminem has apologized for some of the music he has released over the years and has admitted to having problems with racism.
Rap music has been associated with violent acts such as murder, robbery, and vandalism. According to police reports, most violent acts are committed by males between the ages of 15 to 25 years old.
One of the most infamous rappers that had violent acts committed by him was the late rapper Notorious B.I.G.
Not only are rap artists accused of being racist and sexist, but many of them are also accused of having hate speech within their songs.
Rap is a type of music. Many of those who play music do not see music as a “crime”; therefore, they are not holding back the influence this music genre has on them.
It is a prevalent genre of music, especially among the younger generation. This trend is especially prevalent on college campuses.
This greatly influences our youth, especially when it comes to using foul language and the message behind such words.
Why is this relevant?
Simply put, there is a disconnect between young men and women and the Hip-Hop genre, especially regarding their stance on the role of women in the music industry.
Specifically, women are being portrayed in negative ways in rap music. This, in turn, is influencing the mindset of young women and the future attitudes about the roles of women in our society.
One example of this is the mainstream media portrayal of female rappers. Many of these women have been featured on songs alongside explicit language and profanity.
While some are trying to defend the more vulgar lyrics, rap music has grown into such a popular trend, as it is a major influence on youth.
One rap song in particular that exemplifies Rap music’s problem is “Coon Town,” by Nipsey Hussle. The song itself is rather corny, but the fact that such lyrics are being written and sung by young men, in many cases who do not fully understand what the lyrics are referencing, should be enough to cause concern.
Another factor is the relationship rap music has with other groups, such as the Black Lives Matter movement. Although the song was written a long time ago, it was recently changed to address police brutality in modern-day society, where police brutality, in some cases, goes unnoticed.
This, along with the larger point that many rappers do not understand their music’s impact on the young people around them, should cause concern.
This is a perilous trend that has the potential to influence our youth negatively. We, as a society, must take this issue seriously, and we must begin to rethink the role rap music plays in our society.
Why is it of such importance that rap music is held back from the younger generation?
Why do we need to keep rap music from the youth?
Because, according to many mental health experts, rap music is a form of drug addiction.
The lyrics in rap music, at its root, are negative and often degrade women. This, according to psychologists, is a form of addiction.
This, of course, has reached epidemic proportions in our society.
Rappers can clearly see this trend as an important way to obtain a certain amount of respect from the public and use their language and lyrics to make the listener feel included or less of a stranger to the music.
With this, rap becomes an instant “home” to many listeners. However, without the negative, explicit lyrics, rap is simply another genre of music, without much stigma.
The point is, rap music influences the minds of young people. With this influence comes an increased risk of addiction, suicide, and depression.
At the end of the day, rap is an escape for many young people. It is an escape from their daily troubles, and instead of giving them a voice, rap takes the voice away.
If we want our youth to be healthy, we need to act now, before it is too late.
