Black Americans, compared to other races, have it hard in the USA. So doesn't rap containing lyrics featuring gangstas and crime only compound black Americans' problems? The way I see it, it's like a Catch 22. Poverty inspires gangsta rap, which leads to crime and poverty, which inspires more gangsta rap.
Biggie was the king, but nevertheless should gangsta rap like his frowned upon?

Artforms should not be censored on the basis of association, etc.
If you got rid of every song, film, painting, book or other artform which could be intrepretted as inspiration for immorality, you would be left with a very bland arts industry indeed.
Plenty of young black and white people enjoy gangster rap without every getting anywhere near involved with gangster culture itself, and that is more than enough evidence for the fact that gangster rap is not an immediate threat or strong influence on young people's actions.
