You're stereotype of Rap is distasteful.
I think the majority of people can listen to musicians like Immortal Technique, Dr Dre, NWA, DJ Quik, Mike Shindoa or Eminem without going out,
smoking drugs and stealing cars.
I can tell you as fact, more drugs are taken at a Festival (like Download or Sonisphere) where the music is Rock and Metal. I've recently seen Xzibit
at my hometown, and the fans there were literally the furthest away from what I was expecting. White guys with their girlfriends were a prime
And when I went to see Karnivool, an Australian Alt Rock band, I was amazed to find myself stood next to the guitarist, whilst watching the support,
with him as high as a kite.
Rap culture is horribly generalized as of late. You can't generalize every Rapper due to what a few mainstream artists may have done back in the day.
Modern Rap artists are a lot more focused on the music. I've worked with a few, and they're generally talented people who're experimenting with
genre's in great ways.
