Or do you think it simply shows what is really going on, not glorifying it?

Here are the lyrics to a rap song by nas:


"I Can"

[Kids]
I know I can (I know I can)
Be what I wanna be (be what I wanna be)
If I work hard at it (If I work hard at it)
I'll be where I wanna be (I'll be where I wanna be)

[Nas]
Be, B-Boys and girls, listen up
You can be anything in the world, in God we trust
An architect, doctor, maybe an actress
But nothing comes easy it takes much practice
Like, I met a woman who's becoming a star
She was very beautiful, leaving people in awe
Singing songs, Lina Horn, but the younger version
Hung with the wrong person
got her strung on that
heroin sniffin up drugs all in her nose...
Coulda died, so young, now looks ugly and old
No fun cause now when she reaches for hugs people hold they breath
Cause she smells of corrosion and death
Watch the company you keep and the crowd you bring
Cause they came to do drugs and you came to sing
So if you gonna be the best, I'ma tell you how,
Put your hands in the air, and take a vow
Do you have a problem with these lyrics?

You know that's not an example of a majority of lyrics.

I don't know that it is. By the way, this same thread is being continued in the debate section now.

Well, whether rap music is a factor in anti-social behaviour or not is unclear but it does correlate strongly. Many others listen to rap music and are generally good boys. I used to like a bit of garage music back then but I have been a good boy all my life.

Let's just say that people who listen to rap and drink, do drugs, kill people etc because of it probably wouldn't be good for socety without rap either, you can't blame everything on it.
