Hip Hop America, is centered around hip-hop in America and the effects hip-hop places on American culture. Artist praising negativity allow for audiences to be severely impacted by hip-hop subculture. Hip-hop coming from a violent environment, uses violence to express. An artist having an audience, opens up the possibility of artists giving the wrong impression of the perception of right or wrong. The ethical corruption hip-hop can create, increases by the violence incorporated in the
It means closing your eyes and having feelings that can make you see things in a beautiful light. Unfortunately, it seems as if real hip hop is hard to find! So many criminals in the game have ruined what we truly knew as hip hop in order to have success they bring violence into their lyrics and exposing the rap music industry for money to themselves. Rap is a two way street and after its massive growth it finally left the hood. Rappers now own multi million dollar estates and travel the world, rap has become so popular nowadays that our whole generation lives around it, dance to it, and make money from it.
It is proven through belief that hip-hop was indirectly created from and influenced by the scatting and improvisation of jazz. Some even refer to hip-hop as the “jazz of the younger generation” (difference between hip-hop and jazz, 2011). Both jazz and hip-hop used their lyrics to express life. They also share many Afrocentric characteristics. They have polyphony, rhythm, repetition, and call and response in common.
Hip, in american society, is in a contstant state of flux. In Leland’s words, “Through its changes, hip maintains some constraints: a dance between black and white; a love of the outsider; a straddle of high and low culture; a grimy sense of nobility; language that means more than it says” (Leland, p. 10). To be hip is to be malleable yet to know about conformity and to establish oneself without the pressure of having to abide by societal norms. Leland wants the reader to believe that being hip is not about the trivial things that society sees but rather about the impact the actions leave and how others are influenced by said actions. The future depends on what hip really is and how hip is
Today, rap music is undeniably one of the most popular music genres, dominating all music charts. Historically, music has always been a medium for social expression taking the form of everything from hope to anger.

Rap started out as a platform for the African American youth to express themselves through this form of poetry about their life experiences.

In addition, hip hop teaches the youth that social media is going to throw negative stereotypes, in which teens could be aware of. Furthermore, hip-pop allows African Americans to overcome stereotypes through expression of the music and culture.
I think that listening about how some of these artists came from nothing and now they are so successful is so interesting. I think that hip-hop has had a huge effect on pop culture today and it has become very hard for young people to stray away from it because it can be found everywhere in society. These artists are being looked at as icons now and that does not seem to be changing for a long time to come. The types of images that are accepted in hip-hop are the ones that make you look as tough as you possibly can be. If you display a soft side at all you are frowned upon by society so it is very important for these artists to keep their tough guy image on them at all
However, as children develop, parents give careful consideration to the music and features that catch their children’s interests and captures their attention. Exposing children to different genres of music expands their knowledge and helps them begin to formulate what types of music they begin to relate to. Music gives children a chance to get away from what’s going on in their young lives. It is completely normal for teenagers to feel the need to use music as a distraction to block out their surroundings and allow them to focus on what inspires them. There is, however, a concern with the negative and damaging topics of hip hop and rap.
Their lyrics tend to have power and express struggles and symbol a better life. Hip hop has helped people express themselves and make changes in society Hip hop has helped in many ways fight corruption and call out the government.
