In what ways is Rap Music destroying our society? Can anything good come from Rap?

It isn't.....anything destructive in rap music is merely a symptom of societal decay, not the cause.

I agree with Doom.

It's both. Art reflects and influences society. (I won't get into whether rap deserves to be called art/music or not; y'all know what I mean.)

For now I'll set aside the effects of mere music on the mind, and focus on lyrics. If you hear or say something enough, it cannot but affect you, consciously or not.

Rap tends to focus the mind on violence, crime, and immorality. Hearing it may not make one a criminal, but again, it's going to have an effect.

Great answer. I agree. I don't believe anyone can stay with God if they are constantly singing Rap lyrics.

Rap disrespects women, treats violence as necessary, and is filled with profanity. It is open scandal and sends the wrong message. It should be banned.

[sarcasm]You mean you can't see the benefit of such rap classics as "F*** the Police"?[/sarcasm]

I was going to include a link to an article highlowlighting Hip-hop's 10 most offensive songs, but it is so bad that I can't even do that. If you absolutely HAVE to know, google it. It'll be the first thing that appears. :nooo:
