i never heard it, but i do reckon that a lot of rap music does keep poorer people down. For example, street kids seeing this rap artits with their
gold and diamonds, and they think thats whats = a success, so they out and snatch someone's gold/diamonds because at 13-14, they cant afford it. This
leads to crime of course, and is hard to stop once you see how easy it is.
Also, a lot of people on ATS have said before that the nwo love rap because it dumbs people down and keeps them angry and destroys their minds long
term. I dont think this is the case, because there is some really knowledgable independent political and socially concious rap music out.
