    Unfortuntely, she went out of business. I think I was the only one who went there.



    I used to have a truckload of their music downloaded to my computer, but sadly it crashed.

    I think I died a little with it.



    Hm. No.

    Please indulge.

    Sorry about that I live in the inner city records shop everywhere and about 2 or 3 close down every year

    I've seen critics (or "critics" ) blame rap groups like N.W.A. and people like Ice-T as perpetrators of a violent culture, and they're right to a degree. But the way I see it is those rappers were products of a violent and impoverished environment. Many urban areas were extremely hostile and unhealthy, especially after the crack epidemic in the late 80s, so I don't necessarily think it's fair to attribute all the blame to just the rappers.

    Gangsta rap was never meant for mainstream society. It was a subgenre directed at a very specific target audience (typically black kids growing up in rough areas who could relate on a very tangible level to the struggles in many of those lyrics). Record labels caught onto the popularity of gangsta rap from the high sales in urban areas and basically exploited it for profit.

    i work with kids in an anti-gang program who listen to a lot of gangsta rap. i try to work them away from it to more positive music. i've found that positive music does promote positive thinking. i believe in music to develop a positive mentality, to open up and connect with parts of you that are there but unnoticed, that are buried deep.

    i think gangsta rap is more the product of an environment than a cause. i don't think it really puts ideas in kids' heads, but it does reinforce tendencies that are already there in you. the kids that can actually relate to gangsta rap do find a connection in it, to the experiences they can relate to, a pull that draws them in. but instead of starting with that connection and building positive constructive ideas on it, it just tells you to throw up bigger walls, more anger and distance.
    music with a negative message has a caustic effect on people, maybe gradually and subtly, but i do think it can be corruptive.
    Exactly! This is what I point out in the essay!
    I don't watch MTV anymore, let alone television (BET is another cesspool :rolli. I can't stomach it. The "rap" they show on that channel now is mind-numbing, to say the least, not to mention their shows . Those networks glorify rappers while defaming them by helping them disrespect themselves. I really don't know where rap is going to go from here, but, unfortunately, it has already made its mark and is becoming the cultural image of what black people are and value today.

    That is sad.

    *tear*
    And ironically, many of the older "hard core" rappers like KRS and Nas, are the ones lamenting a lot of this stuff and claiming "Hip Hop is dead". I believe it just went beyond where they wanted it to go, but they helped it get here by mixing so much violence and sex into the message.

    I have not kept track of Christian rap, but I know from about 10-15 years ago, Cross Movement and The Storytellas were very good.
