        That's incorrect.

          IMO
          I think that the culture of Gangster Rap and Hip Hop Rap does have a lot in common. I watch way more MTV than I care to admit. I watch some of the videos but mainly I watch just about every show that gets on MTV.

          IMO
          If you watch Cribbs, you can see that they share a value set,a certain kind of cultural elitism that appears to make them more similar than different. Now I'm not making a derogatory statement just an observation.

          One of the most interesting things I see is that in many of their homes,hip hop and gangster you will find Scare Face posters and or a room celebrating Scare Face. IMO this is just a cultural thing that brings them together like conservative and orthodox Jews buying KFP soda pop.

          This is not all bad at all but it does promote the hard/negative stereotype of this culture. So the point is if an energy drink is promoted by a raper there will be some (not all) association with the negative aspects of this culture.

          It's a real fine line. IMO

              Of course Gangsta Rap and Hip Hop have alot in common. That's because Gangsta Rap is a sub-genre of the Hip Hop music style.

              Gangsta Rap is very negative. It involves mostly lyrics about crime.

              But not all Hip Hop music is about crime.

              I do agree that Gangsta Rap is not a wholesome choice of music for children.

                Wow. Lepke. That's...... F*cked up, if I may say so.

                Hip-hop does not promote gang culture. As DJ HS said, gangsta rap a subgenre of hip-hop, but only a small percentage of hip-hop artists have actual gang connections. I think you're confusing violence for gang violence, and again, violent rap only makes up a certain portion of the hip-hop world.

                Prior to the early 90s, gangsta rap barely existed. Like in any genre, of course, there are those who choose to express their anger through music, but back then, hip-hop was either fun loving and light hearted or had a serious message. How can you say that a genre whose first major hit was based on a sample of "Good Times"? You yourself even reference one of hip-hop's early pioneers, who certainly was no gangster himself.

                Say what you want about gangsta rap--violence of any kind is a negative influence on society. But shame on you for turning your back on an entire genre of music because of one facet of it. Such willful ignorance is just as detrimental to society as violence.

                  I believe calling hip-hop ???????music??????? is stretching it. I see little if any musical value in hip hop.

                    After years of studying music, I've learned that silence is just as important as sound. Time for some silence.

                    I'm done with this topic. Don't worry about being banned for speaking the truth anytime soon--ignorance is far from fact.

                      Reminds me of a certain President who said,
                      "it depends on the meaning of the word is." LMAO
