interesting read. I'm a huge fan of hip-hop/rap music and a big conspiracy theorist so this is right up my alley. I've always thought that this genre of music seemed to trend the way it has on purpose. The constant bragging about spending money, sex, and drugs are reiterated themes that seem to be in every mainstream song. One thing I've noticed is that the newer generation doesn't talk about violence quite as much as the old one used to. Sure you still hear the occasional gang banger tracks, but for the most part all of the biggest mainstream hip hop songs don't really promote too much violence anymore. I think it's interesting and that there is a reason for this...
