Rap has taken a back-seat on community activism and cherishing our youth. We now cherish what it means to value WWE level entertainment done on a platform, playing into a sterotype on an independent level. I understand we rap to make success, some do it for the fun. If all means though, think on what a future can hold with the other talents you hold. I think starting out as a youth doing something positive to keep away and hone in on your thoughts is a great resource for hip-hop. Then as we evolve, we see the thoughts we write down then begin to manifest what we think. Some people write income, some people write revolution and some write destruction. In other words, I think instead of living in are dreams; embrace reality with force. You always wanted to be the man you say you are, then live it out. Why let the self-centered dream you are living on a image tell you other-wise. I think rap has helped breed community leaders, helped improve critical thinking and also promoted intercity communalism.
Then we have the other side of rap music where it is all about chasing a check. What it means to be a rapper now is to become property of another man and public image. Then watched your-self be dog walked around by your own sterotypes with a corporate agenda tied to this mans interest. Sometimes the myth may be true that some record labels are here to watch the prison rates rise, teen pregnancy go up and get the primal senses active. Drums and catch phrases help militaries prepare for war, so why can’t chants in a song boost the morale of a person to do an activity.
