Although many think of Japans Hip hop as imitated and unoriginal this has been proven not to be the case at all. Diverse parts of Japanese hip-hop have been enlightened, The Japanese culture shows how self-portrayed "yellow B-Boys" express their dedication to "dark culture," how they consolidate the figure of the samurai with American rapping methods and gangster symbolism, and how underground specialists rival pop symbols to characterize "genuine" Japanese hip-hop. Rappers here tend to control the Japanese dialect to accomplish rhyme and musical stream and Japan 's female rappers battle to discover a place in a male-ruled domain. Careful consideration is given to their messages, considering how their raps go up against subjects including Japan 's training framework, its sex industry, young tormenting casualties turned schoolyard killers, and even America 's treatment of the war on fear. the messages, of the rappers, identify with inquiries of race.
In her essay “hip hop’s betrayal of black women,” Jennifer McLune implies that “(h)ip-hop owes its success to the ideology of women-hating” (193). She does not agree with Kevin Powell’s article that hip-hop does not mean to “offend” black women, but instead artists are only letting out their temper throughout their music. McLune feels infuriated that many artists in hip hop (including black men) rap about their community and downgrade their own women. In the hip-hop genre, sexism is mainly used, not only by black men but also by many other race hip-hop artists. Artists assume that women-hating in their rap songs will be accepted by women, but do not realize that it is affecting all women.
As an advent rap listener, where the embellishment of struggle rap is real and the wealth and the lifestyle that comes with it is flaunted in such a way that the taste of music often takes a backseat, it’s refreshing to see young, fresh, faces who are dedicated to making music that simply explains what is real to them. Nothing is exaggerated and nothing is fake, and that’s what really keeps their listeners

Positive role models are so important in our society, someone who they can look up to and be a positive impact on their lives. So many times, in our society, so many adolescences marvels at role models that have no talent like the Kardashian or these reality TV stars. I like the positive role models for adolescence that encourage them to make smart choices in their lives and builds them up overall. One positive role model for adolescence would have to be the rapper J Cole, there are a lot of rappers that talk about negative things in their music like violence and having the most money. The rapper J Cole sings about being positive and loving yourself, he is a lot different then other rappers in our society, the reason I picked him is because
Some people believe that rap music does not promote drug use nor violence, but is an expression of truth in today’s world and emotions the rapper may have. Rap music is one of the key promoters of violence and drug use among society and its listeners today. There was a study that found that listening to rap is far more strongly correlated with property crimes than crimes of violence among urban youth. The likelihood of committing such crimes is probably increased by poverty rather than musical preference (Copley, Jennifer. Listening to Rap..).
These devices ensure the audience’s attention and understanding, rather than a lack of sympathy or interest. His devices also connect the audience to the issue and makes them understand the depth of misrepresentation. Staples in his own way is able to show how preconceived notions are cruel generalizations of large groups of people, and a constant plague to the african american
Gangsta rap, a subgenre within hip-hop, often favours aggressive lyrics and hard-hitting beats in order to reflect the violent lifestyles of inner-city youth (Adaso, Gangsta Rap). In the 1990’s, Gangsta rap may have gained a greater acceptance amongst the mainstream, but remained controversial due to its content ranging from gang violence, misogyny to substance abuse and various other forms (Adaso). But with the increase in listeners came greater exposure to the vulgar in nature lyrics, followed by a greater
Rappers have slowly stopped focusing on matters with social significance and instead focus on themselves. The language has drastically changed as well as the use of explicit words and derogatory terms mostly towards women are being widely used across the whole movement. Another method rappers use to gain attention is to indirectly diss other rappers to ignite some sort of altercation which fans of today like
When people think of rappers, they think of hard, mean lyrics and rough backgrounds but Kyle is just the opposite. In this song he really excelled his originality and showed everyone that rap is not about being tough but about being yourself. If you were unable to tell from the title, this song is based off of the popular movie; Star Wars. Being nerdy is what sets him apart from other rappers the
Coming from a disadvantaged household myself, the lyrics of rap artists resonate with me. Artists like Kendrick Lamar spur a pursuit of something greater. Artists like Kanye West allow me to understand that is alright to be different. The lyricism of the artists that I am a personal fan of not only deal with the trials and tribulations of poverty and crime, but touch on overall human experiences, such as finding love, or growing up. However, many people do not see it that way.
Not everyone thinks this is a problem, but more of a solution to help promote their thoughts and opinions about major issues occurring in the world. For example, hip hop artist Drake is known for his music about the heart and love. Another artist by the name of Kendrick Lamar sings more about deep thoughts and the soul. Not only did a great message of a song allow hip hop to spread, but who was rapping the lyrics had a major effect on the hip hop
Gangsta Rap’s Popularity in the United States The rise of “gangsta rap” in the late 1980s and early 1990s is the result of many different factors. The reasons for its popularity are obvious in urban, mostly black areas. It is hard to understand the attraction to this hard rap style by the inhabitants of middle-class, suburban neighborhoods; yet, these places are where most of the young consumers of rap live (Gold). This is nothing new; non-black people have appreciated and appropriated black culture and music for hundreds of years.
