Hop Songs That Helped Define The ‘90s

Gangsta Rap grew in part out of the social and political climate on the West Coast, where cities such as Compton, California, became engulfed in gang violence fueled by the crack cocaine epidemic. Make no mistake-I think this article is spot on. I'm not denying that the way the mainstream reacts to rap music betrays the lingering racist sentiments many white people (myself excluded-but some of my friends and family included, unfortunately) like to pretend are no longer there. We tend to shift towards Hip hop music since it induces a feeling of liberation. Edreys also said he has his finger on the pulse of the industry and has watched hip/hop morph from conscious to gangster and from bubble gum to sexy.

The overt branding of conscious rap did make it a viable scene, and like all practitioners of an emerging brand, many conscious rappers played fast and loose with reality to fit their sloganeering. So blacks using a excuse is not an excuse, if all I show you is this gangsta music and tell you this is your culture, who wants to be the oddball or sellout” and not follow their so called culture, you can't help yourself cause the tools that are given are not designed for you to help yourself be a balanced well thought out individual.

No it shouldn't be singled out for misogyny however the problem is it IS being singled out and that's where I personally feel race comes in. If you want to knock rap and hip-hop fine but don't criticize it for glorifying things I see glorified all the time in everything from movies to tv to beer commercials to magazines to positive rap lyrics graphic novels,etc. Her bubbly personality, curvaceous figure, and rap alter egos have resulted in her receiving a lot of endorsement deals. D. I found the lyrics to this song difficult to understand but watching the music video helped me portray the message though.

After Pac, aggressive Hip Hop continued to dominate (Even Nelly's first single was about Street Sweepers) DMX continued with the emotions, Will Smith filled the void in Hollywood (and Jada), but no artist was able to touch the people the way Tupac did socially. Other popular rappers in the early 1980s like The Treacherous Three, Spoonie Gee and The Fearless Four just to name a few, released fun party music that was played at every dance function in Hip Hop's earlier stages. To the writer, this explained the rise of gangster rap - with its themes of guns, drugs, bling, etc. Each competitor will be given the opportunity to rap for a certain period of time.

Historically, radio played an important role in providing a forum for socially conscious Hip Hop cultural and political expression. Prisoner of Conscious — the album is called that because people wouldn't appreciate my lyrics if they didn't like my musical choices. When it got gangster, it was much more marketable and the major record labels started pushing that over more conscious artists, Personally, I think it was kind of intentional just to subvert hip hop into being dumb for 20 years and sabotaging black activism.

Very few have put together the amount of impressive rhymes that KRS has, and whether he's done it with his group Boogie Down Productions or on his own, the Blast Master is clearly the best conscious rapper of all time. I agree some of the conscious rappers exaggerate their rhymes to make themselves seem more intelligent then they actually are but at the end of the day they are STILL RAPPERS. I could definitely see this being a theme in many of these artistic avenues; film, comedy, and music.
