I hate to say this but...hip-hop/rap is negative music
« on: April 07, 2004, 05:45:50 PM »
Yes, it is true, I hate to admit it, but its true, I mean some of you just dont understand the energy these people are sending out with their voice and lyrics, even if you are not listening to the music, just the energy in the songs.

hip-hop rarely brings across good messages and good vibes, and those are the conscious heads like talib kweli and mos def.

I mean what I cant understand is how an artist like dr dre can be STILL talking about the same shit he was talking about a decade ago and NOT GROW. The guy is damn near 40 years old, I would feel stupid as hell if i was him. After a while I just get fed up with these gangsta tales, I find it childish.

Then there is the influence this music has on society, which i will not get into too much because i feel like the listener has a resposibility of NOT BEING STUPID. but then the person making the music should be aware of the effects he will have with every word he says, well OF COURSE, a musician does not want you go out and kill people or do drugs and get in trouble or whatever, but he has to know his power. and a lot of rappers are ignorant to this.

I have been a defender of hip hop my whole life, i have always loved it and defended it like it was my family but now i have come to the realization that just about 90% of rap is negative and has negative effects. after reading a interview between cam'ron dame dash and bill o reilly, there really was no way to defend cam.

I agree, lately I have tended to steer more towards positive hip-hop.

Most hip-hop is now keyboard driven, because the majority of hip-hop workstations have loops and patches that enable somebody with marginal skills to put tracks together,...

Unfortunately, most hip-hop artists gravitated towards the path of least resistance by relying on these pre-set patches. As a result, electric guitar and real musicians became devalued, and a lot of hip-hop now sounds the same.

yeah most of hip hop is negative and its gettin rediculous...most of the time its about killing or drugs or its just unbelievably offensive. but even people like mos def are negative...i mean...i love mos defs music and i'd say he's positive more than negative...but a lot of his stuff is negative in a totally different sense than the rest of hip hop...its really hard to find positive artists at all.

Sure, there are negative messages in hip hop, what is new?  Is this a news flask to ya'll????  Some people are unbeleivable to me.   DId you realize there is also a lot of negative energy in movies, and even other forms of music.

Besides, there are PLENTY of intelligent rappers to listen to, who make incredible music.  Sure, there are ignorant, arrogant, half-retarded idiots like Camron, but there are very intelligent people in hiphop too.  

I just find this amusing that you just realized half of rap is negative though, it is just too funny.  peace, and if you want a list of 20 rappers who do mostly positive music, holler .

read what we were saying next time...times have changed...hip hop has grown...but yet some rappers are still stuck in the "fuck the police" "kill everything that walks" days.

yes you're right...other music forms are very negative...but theres a ton of positive (oh lets say...rock) to make up for it. go ahead though...i want  a list of 20 rappers that do mostly positive music.

theres still tons of rappers with a message...just because they have a message doesnt mean they are positive.

Rock music is mostly negative too...but here's a reality check....SO WHAT?

bottom line, HIP HOP is not for the SOFT!

even the positive rappers, they talk about real issues, again, not for the SOFT! reality is harsh, reality is negative....hip hop not 4 tha muthafucaz that feel like their ears are being molested when they hear 'fuc tha police'.

man y'all gotta realize...hip hop was made by and for the lower/working class...it's the music of the struggle...middle/high class people became fans and fascinated by it, they have no right to criticize all krayzie...

there are music for every occasion...there's rap music for the clubs, there's shit for tha blocs, yall ever posted on a real 'bloc'? wat do muthafucaz talk about, what do they get into? it's reality and U soft doods just have to accept it...U talkin bout it's negative for tha 'kids'? what kids? u talkin bout little kids? well so what? every damm movie out there is negative for kids, it is not made for them...but most still sneak in or buy and watch em...it works exactly the same way with music...don't gimme that pussy bullshit...it's reality and U soft doods just have to accept that...I can see your point of views, yall sit there on yur computers, and yur adrenaline aint pumping, yur environment is a 4 cornered bedroom and U dun wanna bump no gangsta shit...so U go ahead and bump your concious stuff, your kwelis, your mos defs, your atmospheres, you pissed at some shit? work? school? society? so then u bump your dead prez, your coups etc....I'm exactly tha same way....there's a right place and right time for EVERYTHING in this world...

what is positive anyway? really, think about it....do U even wanna hear that shit? I mean expressing how U feel inside, talkin down upon society etc...dats positive hip hop rite? well...news flash, dats not even positive either when u think about it...not even Ja Rule's love songs are positive...NOTHING is positive...but SO WHAT? the world is not a positive place...positive is a man made word anyway...so positive means nothing....enjoy the music and be you.

actually rock is less negative than rap...

on the outside when you see bands like:


AC DC
Metallica
Black Sabbath

you think that they're satanic and promote evil and shit

i  use to for years say "fuck rock, that shit is for white boy satanists....i like rap because it's real" the reality  is rap is the least real music when you compare how much  BS is out there....yeah rap has chuck d, pac, and Mos Def, and such but those artists are few and far between. most of the subject matter in hip hop is the glorification of drugs, violence, and selfishness. the majority of hits and classics that come from rap contain negativity. Alot of songs in other genres promote the same stuff too but no other genre celebrates it as much as hip hop.


now i can put out the same rock artists and name the meaning behind some of their most famous songs and you'd be amazed at the subject matter, it's just as hard as NWA but check the message:


master of puppets-Metallica; an anti drug song
War Pigs-Black Sabbath; Hypocracy of the Government,protest against vietnam
Hells Bells- ACDC; song about Alcaholism


in my opinon you can still be HARD without being deconstructive

some of y'all are acting real ignorant right now...but i guess that's why y'all like hiphop, right? really, what's the point in listening to an emcee that promote's everything that you would never accept as acceptable? life isn't negative, it's all a person's perspective. and people haven't just realised it or even thought that times are changing, maybe they're just growing...who wants to listen to gangsta shouting profanity forever? what gangsta actually wants to be gangsta forever? hiphop is the most extreme and fake cult in the world. intelligence doesn't automatically equal positivity, you could be a criminal mastermind and brainwash kids for the government...lol

what i'm saying is, i'm sure everyone who agreed actually meant they're sick of the bullshit and want something with substance, point blank.

the bit i made bold.....the fact is does everyone find the same things acceptable?...i dunno about yall but i was raised to be like "fuck the police" an this is before i even was a rap fan....thats jus what its like round here....so when i hear a rapper sayin that im gunna relate cus it fits my mentality....


jus my 2cents...

yeah it's negative....

but i went through a stage similar to that a while ago, and i sold a bunch of my cds. the past few years have been spent trying to find those cds again. for me, hip hop is like a nostalgia. i couldn't stop listening to it even if (and when) i tried. it's a part of my growing up and learning experience. and even if i decide not to listen to any new rap anymore, i'm always gonna think that the stuff that i've always liked is dope, cuz it's a part of me.

it's good to realize that rap is negative, cuz it broadens your horizons to other forms of music....but back to your point, i think we've all felt that one time or another

I'm glad most of you realize what I'm talking about and see it the same way.

and to those who are arguing against me, let me tell you, all of you have that weak, oh rap is negative? well so are movies? so what? its still negative, its not going be positive just cause movie are bad too.

and if its pussy shit to not want to listen to music that praises all sorts of sin and destruction which what satan bassicly praises, then yeah im with that pussy shit. I might find it entertaining myself, yeah, but you know what the difference between a negative movie and a negative song is? you listen to songs constantly, and way more than you watch a movie, and that negative energy is constantly getting to you and YOU DONT EVEN KNOW IT!

I can't speak for others, but i have turned out just fine DESPITE growing up on GANGSTER rap since i was in grade 6-7.  I graduated highschool, i graduated university, i am a teacher, i am engaged, i do not drugs, i dont commit crimes, i dont swear every second word, i have a positive outlook on life, i have a positive self image, i respect women and people of all races.

All of the above despite the fact i constantly listened to NWA, Dre, Snoop, BIggie, Cube, Ren, Eazy, Too Short, WC, etc etc while growing up.  My point, only people who are easily influenced and experienceing other problems in life will be susceptible to the negative messages in hiphop.  Others will just enjoy the way a beat bumps, the way a mc flips his lyrics, the way a chorus is scratched in, etc.

BOttom line, its only entertainment.  And for the first time ever, i agree with NIK: " Dr. Dre is still making the same music, but Steven Spielberg is still making the same movies, while Stephen King is still writing the same books...Frankly, I don't see a difference...It's all entertainment"

Man You are right almost. Hip Hop is the culture Rap is the music that explains the culture. If you thinks Gangster's don't cuss everyday. Your wrong. People have to stay true to self. If you want positive Rap listen to different Rappers. Listen to Kanye West, Talib, Mos Def etc. if you want something Different even Outkast they try something new some kids that come from where they come from will not be afraid to try something different. No one wants to hear love songs all day. But if you listen to Rock, R&B Country, & Blues That is most of what you will hear. Love & Love gone wrong songs. That happens to everyone. Getting Harassed by the cops does not happen to everyone. I was getting Harassed by the cops everyday for a while. I would listen to 2PAC, NWA, and Ice Cube everyday just to get by(All old music but still valid). I was not doing anything wrong didn't dress a certain way, didn't break any laws. All they could do is pull me over & detain me for a while then let me go. I can't blame some people for not giving up the Fuck the Police mentality. Shit hasn't changed it is just getting covered up. http://www.usdoj.gov/crt/voting/intro/intro_b.htm It ain't all good. So don't fool your self. It has pretty much always been negative. Why do you think Negativity sells more. People what something they can relate too. If not then their will be some riots in a minute. 8)

none of you really have a strong arument against mine

JT said dont preach

teecee said it hasnt effected him, well guess what man, not everyone in the world is like you, and ill be it HAS effected you in ways you can not tell. The energy in the songs can build up anger, frustration and many other negative engergies when the rappers are sending that type of vibe out to the listener. Well you, ok you might be able to handle those energies because you are in control, but so many other people are not and rappers just ignorantly send out these messages. I mean you can talk about your hood and what goes on, but dont glorify carrying guns and selling cocaine while you fuck a bitch without a condom and then down a 40 and drive with a blunt in your mouth. Ok maybe one or two songs because its entertaining but not on every song on every album

I bet many other artists in the music industry drink alcohol, have sex and smoke weed too, but they dont promote it on every damn song, with rappers its almost a guarantee you will hear references like that in a song. damn man, 1. its not healthy, 2. its really dull and getting old, infact it got old in the late nineties.


and then Neji Huga, well i dont see how you are justifying rap's negativity, your saying it sells more? well of course it does, but it is destroying people from the inside. what im saying is that negativity is glorified and its wrong, rappers might as well promote rape and drunk driving too. Of course guys will like it when girls are getting slutty and giving it up, but think of the future and how it can effect your kids. Stop being ignorant and think about it before you all reply, im not saying agree with me, but i think you should think about what im saying atleast.

Doggy, i respect what you are trying to say, and it sucks that hiphop has negatiely impacted you.  As for hiphop, it is still a relatively new type of music and i am willing to bet it will grow a lot more and become more well-rounded.  If you dont like the negative music though, i would suggest listening to other artists or another music genre.  And yo, negativity is always gonna be around us, you just gotta get your head right to the point where it doesnt effect you, ya feel me?  As for preaching to others, i think most of us are smart enough to realize hiphop has negative messages.  

I teach students who think eminem or 50 cent are gods, and i actually have discussions with then outside of the classroom to let them know these guys arent good role models....i dont think it is bad for young people to listen to rap, i just think they have a parent explain to them this isnt to be taken to serious.

And i have never cared which rappers are the "realest", cuz if any of these rappers arae actually still gangsters than they have fucking problems.  Thats why i respect DRE, he is not even close to a gangster in real life, he just makes gangster music.  Whether you like it or not, it is the same thing as what a Stephen King does.  

What drew me to hiphop in the first place was the "gangster" attitude.  Since then, i have aquired more well-rounded tastes in regards to rap, and artists like Talib and Last Emperor stay in my rotation as much as Dre or Snoop...peace man, and take it easy

U still haven't answered my question....

SO WHAT?

cmon doggy, U and I kno U go thru phases....U go thru more phases than anyone I have ever known and U will come outta this one sooner or later....are U tellin me yur never going to listen 2 yur favorite group anymore because they're always rappin bout "murder"? Or are U just simply informing us that rap is negative.

mark my words....ANYTHING in this world CAN be negative, depends on that individual, little kids, they might listen 2 rap and get influenced but that can happen wit religion or anything else to that matter....There's no possible way U can argue against that....and i'm not justifying anything....

Mouse over here stressing bout how hip hop is a fake cult....now wat tha fuc does that mean? do U even know tha essense of hip hop? maybe hip hop just isn't for U because U was brought up in a different environment....how can U say something like this and be on this forum? dats what's ignorant to me....

Like I said, there's music for EVERY occasion....U don't have to constantly bump gangsta shit, wat kinda bullshit is this?....if it ain't for U, then it ain't for U....DON'T bump it....there needs to be more substance? dats true....but there is MORE substance in rap than EVER before rite now....go find em....jesus, y'all actin ignorant as fuc....

Stop being ignorant and think about it before you all reply, im not saying agree with me, but i think you should think about what im saying atleast.

You need to read your own words! What I said was "Rap is explaining the Culture". If a lot of things are negative. Then Rap will be negative. Like it was in the Late 80's & early 90's. It's getting more negative because The culture is getting more negative. Like I stated "it ain't all good". The Link was about Black people losing their right to vote in 2007. I don't see how you can say "it is destroying people from the inside." People talking about the choices they would make, is not  glorifying negativity. It's letting people know that sometimes people, have the same frame of mind in a Certain situations. btw Eminem rapped about Rape on his first CD. "Susan, stop cryin, I don't hate ya, The world's not against you, I'm sorry your father raped you, So what you had your little coochie in your dad's mouth? That ain't no reason to start wiggin and spaz out..." My Fault - Track 11. My Point is The overall theme of the Ghetto is negative. Anytime someone says "Ghetto" no one's thought is positive. If you music comes from the ghetto the only a few songs will be positive and the majority will be negative.
