Rap Music And Hip Hop Culture

Rap Music And Hip Hop Culture

The world currently revolves around the hip-hop. In fact, the rap game has become more contemporary than it ever did before. So, why is that, and how does it ever come to fruition? Well, it is really pretty simple. The world heavily relies on economic systems to run and thrive. However, for such completion to be achieved, humans need much more than just a biological manifestation of issues. Humans are engineered to meet their social expectations, and at worst, their social motivations. 

The world of hip-hop revolves around content and context. Rappers and popstars recently fight and compete over rap attention thanks to the widely acclaimed fun and fame that comes from neatly written rhyme schemes and social events. Rap should reflect the wider American society, but it only reflects a minority culture and a minority population of which enjoys miserable living standards. 

Sadly, the Hip Hop culture is widely perceived as expressive and criminal. Majority of Chaucerian Americans fear hip-hop and what it represents. It does not matter whether or not hip-hop is an actual positively empowering social concept which is well conjured to make the plight of the suffering and oppressed black American culture. What it matters is that even though the hip-hop culture highlights discrimination and oppression it also highlights the gangster life in a grandiose manner

The majority of Americans are aware of the plight of innocent black Americans who experience racist profiling and police brutality. Most of the folks do actually emphasize with the injustice. However, some extensive culture of hip-hop discriminates against such an audience of hip-hop lovers that actually share hip-hop sentiments and regard racist profiling as a primitive way to conduct state and national business. Still, no matter how supportive and accommodating their opinions could be, the hip-hop culture still alienates them, and disregard their sympathy and allied affiliation. 

It is very understandable that hip-hop, expressive as it could get, mostly expresses the plight of the black American society. It does not mean that only black Americans appreciate and listen to hip-hop. In fact, super hip-hop acts like DJ Khalid and Eminem thrive on being a minority group in the thriving business of the hip-hop show business. However, the hip-hop artists who always thrive never shout, scream or project racist messages. They always try as much as possible to accommodate the outside world. Therefore, the question is, just how expressive should hip-hop be?

Hip Hop should Never Be Limited or Censored

Hip hop does not represent the black community. If it does, then why is it so popular in Europe, Asia or India? Hip Hop is an art form of expression that voices concerns and the rejection of exploitation. Hip Hop is an expression of what is and what should be about the society. Why else would Machine Gun Kelly enjoy such a wide, respectable and lucrative audience? Is it not because he is very cautious to always stay socially positive and anti-divisive?

Most Hip Hop artists who go to prison due to illegal firearms possession never get accused of robbery with violence or any other criminal activity that actually involves robbery or robbery with violence. In fact, most of the artists always regret getting caught with possession of illegal firearms or narcotics. The black community honestly enjoys a very negative social image of drug trafficking and violence. The main proponents of the rap game and hip-hop politics suffer from the adversities of a dismissive society. They actually thrive from it. The youth that is heavily influenced by Hip Hop should certainly decipher hip-hop messages before they ever judge, assimilate or emulate from such doctrines. Hip-hop should offer social solutions for its incumbent youth. Obama was right when he prescribed education, thoughtfulness, development, and inspiration for the practice of Hip Hop. If the world already perceives you as criminal or in any other negative light, it is incumbent upon you and your peers to change that perspective from a negative one to a positive one. The same applies to all of Hip Hop proponents and dissidents. Rappers like Drake and Lil Wayne have often landed themselves deep-set sentiments of loyalty to the black community. However, they advise, in past interviews, over self-implicated negativity is nonetheless, very solid.
