Ok, so I just watched a violent video where a young teen girl was shot at and she took off running and left the 2 year old behind in which the baby was shot as well as the mom smh. As I was reading through the comment section I see where this guy made a statement that “Hip Hop glorifies these gang shootings and thug behaviors” and this is a result of our society. How much of this do you believe to be true, if any?+1February 15, 2017 at 12:59 pm #5899Tawana NealyParticipant
To a certain extent I would agree with him because at the end of the day we are responsible for our own actions, however I believe the younger generation has gotten out of hand and is inspired by some of the Hip-hop music. Some rappers quotes, ” they have killed niggas and never have” but the young teenagers are influenced and moved by the words of these hip hop artist lyrics. We cannot Control the society of young men, but we can teach them at a young age the circumstances and set back of life. Teach them LOVE. Most of them lack that, especially from the FATHERS. so to reduce those crime rates, we have to reduce the chance of disconnect from the household togetherness. It’s HARD, but it can be done !+1February 15, 2017 at 1:05 pm #5903
@tawana that’s true, it just seems like a cop out of some adults to blame it on the music vs taking responsibility of their mishaps and where they could have done better as parents ijs.0February 16, 2017 at 7:25 am #5926Sky RobertsParticipant
I love music period, but I do think that the music plays a role. Negativity will attract negativity, and if all your hearing is imma kill you, die, i n got this gun, then you will be influenced by it.0February 16, 2017 at 8:46 am #5931
This new generation is so easily influenced and weak minded. So I can see where it would be a big influence on their lives.0February 16, 2017 at 11:06 pm #5993Charles WatersParticipant
I think that with out question the music influences people in a negative way. If positive music can influence people in a positive way, then negative music can influence people in a negative way. Now I not saying that the music should get all of the blame, but it does get some.0February 19, 2017 at 1:59 pm #6133Lisa LorenParticipant
I think that hiphop does glorifies a lot of negativity. And in some cases most teens are influenced more by hiphop than their parents.0February 26, 2017 at 11:52 am #6384Mask AppealParticipant
My Take on this subject is: Yes, I do indeed think that music plays a role. first off I think that it’s less hip-hop and more so Rap. there is a distinct difference. At the end of the day there is enough blame to share all over, but I think that the music deserves it’s fair share of the blame. parents deserves blame also.
The crazy thing is that in many cases Hip-hop actually has a bigger influence on our kids, even more so than the parents themselves. there is no denying music’s influence on our mentality, our fashion, on the way we treat our women, and on our culture as a whole. when someone is getting ready to do a drive-by, I bet you that they are not listening to no Kirk Franklin or Mary-Mary. Just like if your getting ready to make love, your not listening to no Rap Music (Unless Your a Super-freak)0February 26, 2017 at 12:37 pm #6392
You have a great point here, I completely agree.0February 28, 2017 at 12:54 pm #6439Mask AppealParticipant
And im a hiphop head. But you gotta keep it real+1March 7, 2017 at 7:56 am #6754Larry GeorgeParticipant
I disagree, violence is everywhere from movies, to video game, tv shows, even in some cartoons, yet Hiphop always seem to get the blame.+2March 7, 2017 at 9:07 am #6761
You are absolutely right @Larry, but for some apparent reason it seems hip hop is solely to blame.0May 30, 2017 at 12:07 pm #11149Rodger PaulParticipant
Man F-that!! HipHop has nothing to do with all of this violence, if a nigga gonna kill you he gonna kill you.+1
