Why can't rappers rap about sunshine and lollipops?

or they make stuff up to sound "tougher." sadly, the image of a gun toting badass gangster is what sells and is also what is most accepted/desired in this market group.

case in point - there is a trial currently in the courts here in NYC. A rapper is on trial for the execution style killing of cops (one or two). Part of the prosecutions case involves one of the rapper's songs, where he gives details of the killing, bragging about the crime.

sad case in point - the pathetic white boy wannabe gangsters like K-fed, who dress up and pretend they are from some ghetto that, apparently, houses sad white boys in baggy, droopy pants with slanted hats.

There was this funny hip hop video that was out about 5 years ago, where the video had little blurbs popping up making fun of the whole rap industry.

The rapper is rapping into the camera-blurb pops up saying 'fake chains'
Later guest rapper starts-blurb 'borrowed these chains from my producer for the video'
Hot chicks dancing-blurb "hired models-wouldn't hang out with the rappers'
Later hot chick sitting on rappers lap looking all in to him-blurb 'she's not into him'
When rapping around the 'mansion' -blurb 'not my real house, rented for shoot'
Rapping with his crew-blurb 'hired actors'
Crew rapping in circle around camera-blurb 'obligatory beat-down shot'

I forgot the name of the artist but at least he had the courage to be honest.

People really still BUY music??

Usually the ones who can't afford to buy a computer. Which of course leads to the lack of knowing musicians other than those you hear on the radio. I usually hear about good music through friends or the internet. If someone has no internet, and has friends who are limited in te same capacity, then they may be bound to listen to crap.
