Marketing only goes so far. Young people don't want to listen to classical music and you can't recondition them to.
They didn't hire Dre to promote rap music or its associated culture.
There's a difference between someone using those phrases towards people in a demeaning way directly and when used in a song or in casual conversation. You can for example tell someone to f* off, which would be offensive or you can say 'wtf was that' in casual conversation. The f* isn't offensive in an absolute way.
"To the white folks who watched he was a revolutionary bum
And to the black folks he was just a crazy n*****
No one doubted that he pulled the trigger
And though they could not produce the gun"
"I can dress up your wounds
With a blood-clotted rag
I ain't afraid to make love
To a bitch or a hag"
Rap music has a rhythm to it.
So do nursery rhymes. But music has both rhythm and melody, etc. etc. Go hum the melody line of a rap song and you basically get kind of a kindergarten nursery rhyme. Kind of immature childish c-rap. Just saying.........
You don't need to post the videos, we got your point. They are thug mentality pushing c-rap on the unsuspecting children that will most likely end up with dead end jobs, in/out of prison, etc. etc. Just saying...........
Well, if our school systems and companies like Apple, that are big in the music sales industry, it would be a lot better if we had more awareness and education in MUSIC. Kids get into Rap in junior high school and high school because the school systems don't always have mandated music education or don't have any to begin with. Which is a problem, these school systems spend too much money on promoting sports than music and listening to classical music, improvisational jazz has been tested by various psychologist to help improve learning skills amongst kids. Why? They say it excites portions of the brain that are that kind of required for higher learning. So, if you just want mind numbing c-rap, then stand in line for your fake music otherwise, get educated in music so you can have a better way of deciding what is good/bad vs just sucking into the marketing hype. If it's highly marketed, chances are it's junk. I usually find the best products by word of mouth, same goes with music. If it's popular with the masses, that usually tells me it's based on things that are of little substance. McDonald's sells the most hamburgers, but they are barely classified as the best amongst the food critics. You want to eat McDonalds and all of the other most popular products? Welcome to the mediocre part of society. Enjoy the dumbing down of society, because that's what c-rap music does. It makes ya dumb.
