it is ultimately the individual who decides his or her fate. not tv, music, or video games. saying hip hop destroys communites is like saying that the internet was invented by the illuminati to destroy the family unit under a tidal wave of porn and world of warcraft. just about anything can be taken too far. people need to realize that humans love trends, and the current trend is hip hop culture, eventualy it will fall to yet another trend, but like past trends the good stuff will always be around and continue to be made.
i dont care if im 80 ill still pop in tech nine, or lil whyte, or even some king gordy. sorry just cant see the CIA comming up with an idea involving creativity.

Ok I agree gangsta rap is terrible, but I love hip hop.
Akir, Atmosphere, Blue Sky Black Death, Brother Ali, Cage, Cunninlynguists, Dark Tower, Dead Prez, Jel, KRS One, Lightheaded, Living Legends, NMS, Non Phixion, Non Prophets, Organized Konfusion, Phoenix Orion, Poor Righteous Teachers, Promoe, Psycho Realm, Qwel, Sabac Red, Skinnyman, The Herd, Wise Intelligent, X-Clan.
That's just a few good hip hop artists that I like, and might change the OP's opinion of rap.
But I do think the CIA could quite likely be promoting the more violent rap artists. I have heard that it is a continuation of CoIntelPro.

Didn't Biggie have Tupac shot? Or was Tupac an agent who went rogue and so the CIA took care of a rogue agent?

I found all of your claims to be circumstantial with no evidence, and very little proof of any thing. what you said was border line racist.
Secondly, how do you explain bands like The Flobots? Or Bands like Rage Against the Machine who use hip-hop and rap-esque styles to portray their message of how the world IS wrong, and how our GOVERNMENT SUCKS, and so on and so forth.
You have no real evidence, just your biast suggestions about rap.
