Nice response. The song you're referring to is by Immortal technique, has the word devil in the title. I really do think you may be right as far as bombarding people with negative messages to effect their psyche's. I see this more and more in the music industry and I am going to start a killer thread on this. I feel that more and more music is being used to breed certain ways of thinking that promote greed, wealth, destruction and generally anti social behavior.
I am still personally reeling in from some of the values that i absorbed while listening to rap music during my youth. It has taken me a long time to shake a lot of it, I have a lot of friends in the same predicament. I believe that it is yet another way to control people as you said. I see it more and more, all you have to do is watch a lady gaga film clip to see a great example of this, how does S and M relate to pop music for youth? IT DOESNT, but yet we see her videos bombarding people with images similar to Marylin Manson, and this is on a massive scale...

My friend in college did this.
He was always into hip-hop, and skateboarding/snowboarding..
Then one day, at school.. He starts talking about the Illuminati, and Islam, and conspiracies, and a whole buncha shizz I never really put much thought into. lol
I think that's what got me started on this "truther" path, actually.
He converted to islam within like, 2 weeks, and started praying and getting rid of all the stuff that was for "shatan"
(satan), and started being all "holy" and "gotta make it to mecca", etc etc.
About 2 years later, He "gave it up", and went back to himself.
Good luck buddy.
He's on his own path... let him follow it..
he'll end up where he needs to be.
