How Does Rap Music Effect Teenagers? “Without music life, would be a mistake”- Friedrich Nietzsche Music has always plays an important role in our society and it is a part of our life as we grow up. Music is something that is totally subjective, different people has different taste of music and each type of music can have a different impact on the one listening to it. Some music can makes you feel relaxing, some makes you feel excited and some may even makes you feel depress or sad after listening to it. Music has the power to affect teenager or youth so parents have always been worried about the music teenagers listen to and the negative effects on teens, rap and heavy metal music are considered to be the form of music that have negative
As stated by businesswoman Sheryl Sandberg; We can each define ambition and progress for ourselves. The goal is to work toward a world where expectations are not set by the stereotypes that hold us back, but by our personal passion, talents, and interests. (Brainy Quote) A stereotype is defined as a widely held, but fixed and oversimplified image or an idea of a particular type of person or thing. Stereotyping involves making a hasty judgment about someone or something, based on their appearance. Some stereotypes include: all teenagers are rebels, if someone spends too much time reading or surfing the web, they are geeks, and all Muslim are terrorists.

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
Throughout the novel Flight, written by Alexie Sherman, the protagonist, notably known as “Zits,” displays an obscene amount of vulgar language. The use of his patois that is now commonly used amongst the vast majority of teens around the world is one worth explaining. To start, vulgar language is essentially looked down upon because of how profane and “unnecessary” it is. The use of this language in everyday life, not only within this novel, is one that is used to convey emotion, as it is much easier to swear and curse than it is to convey your emotions with “proper” language. As we see from Zits, he does not take the time to thoroughly think and devise a plan of action to “properly” handle his emotions, he just splurges.
Rock and roll music culture has affected the world we live in today in both positive and negative ways. It has changed the black and white racial barrier and the views on people’s emotions, but it has also negatively affected drug use and some behaviours of others. Rock and roll music culture started as a very small and non harmful thing and it eventually became a popular topic within the media. Slowly, the ways of others began to change as results of listening to rock and roll. They passed these ways on through the generations and today, it now affects our everyday lives in various forms.
“To me if feel that the X Factor ruins not just hip-hop but most music genres. Not only do kids like Astro find instant success, but they rap about sh*t which they aren’t apart of. Then the sh*t that they do rap about isn’t what hip-hop is built for. Y’all gotta understand that hip-hop was a way for us to express the discrimination and the reality of the hell we live in. But when you glamorize gang war and don’t pick up the issues but instead only talk about parties and hoes, we lose that form of
The real risk of vulgar music Music acts as the rhythm to our lives, being played in a grocery store, on the radio,and even as a little jingle for a product nobody needs. Music affects individuals a lot more than people in both positive and negative ways, The most negative music is purely vulgar and contains illegal activities for the sole reason of being popular.This kind of music is becoming increasingly common in our culture. People, especially youth, are starting to mimic the behaviors within the music as the result of the influence it has .The vulgar contents are negatively affecting the people who listen to and it’s influencing them to do bad things.Modern music has too much vulgarity solely for the purpose of being popular and people should be extremely wary of it and its effects.The growing popularity of it is also a factor on its influence on society and It will continue to have a detrimental effect on society if it continues Music is a powerful medium that has a large influence on its listeners.Since this is true, music should not be overly vulgar and descriptive of illegal and obscene topics or actions.This is true because music, especially the unnecessarily vulgar kind, effects its listeners .However occasions exist in which this kind of music is used for a very specific purpose, such as to describe a traumatic addiction or incident.Music should not have overly inappropriate themes just because they are popular, but instead it should convey an experience or
In today’s age most teenagers depend on what they see online to create a bias about something, the idea of tattoos is a large topic as well so our bias is centered around what is seen by those we idolize. A statistic from the U.S. expounds, “In the 20th century Americans have gone from disdain of the tattoo to such widespread cultural acceptance that it seems more people under 40 are tattooed than not” (Aubrey 1). Seeing as such young people accept the stars of social media as their idols, it’s right to use them as an example to actually get a tattoo also since we see that they don’t have the fears and regrets that are normally thought
A sensitive society has its difficulties for people to even speak out against the issue of bullying, without being interpreted a different way than its original meaning. Bullying and harassment have been a noticeable problem among students in schools worldwide, and still social acceptance and acknowledgment is a continuous issue. Teens are often picked on because of their sexual orientation/preference, appearances, and many other physical or mental factors. One of the main reasons that bullying and harassment is so prevalent among the teen- aged group is because it is so easy for that age group to succumb to competitions within the group as to whom is the coolest. Additionally, what comprises and qualifies as cool is predecided and made a
I actually like some rap music, just not the type filled with curse word after curse word that it becomes hard to distinguish whether this an adult or a third grader kid who just learned the f-word for the first time. I want us to think about what these so called “idols” are saying, some of it 's just hateful that deserves no protection under so called artist creativity or the bullshit people always tell me about how lyrics about hitting women, shooting people,doing drugs have some sort of deeper meaning that display creative genius makes me sick. If anyone wants to let me know where this so called creative genius is, please let me know I still haven’t seen it yet. Sure, it 's fine to stand in a crowd of people, in nice park shouting the word “nigga” and waving your middle finger in the air like a clown, because you want to feel like you are “bad” and rebel, because you get bored of your nice lifestyle and parents that care. That’s a luxury that my campers cannot afford, and would probably do anything for the privileges we take for advantage each and everyday.
Ever felt like your body wasn 't thin or lean enough? Teens everywhere feel the same way you do, you 're not alone. The social media glamorizes images of unrealistic bodies causing you to feel that way, even though there isn 't anything wrong with your body. Hence why it 's unhealthy to glamorize and to strive for unhealthy body images no matter how much you want it. The media 's glamorization of unhealthy bodies and lifestyles is causing unhealthy body images in teens.
It is evident that media convinces audiences that there is a correct viewpoint of different ideas and it can be difficult for viewers to look past social constructions of the media. Therefore, just because most television shows portray teenagers and college students rapidly consuming alcohol and being intoxicated, it does not mean that that is “normal”. The media is extremely powerful, but it ultimately comes down to a view to create personal beliefs and values. So, when people begin to abuse alcohol, the media makes it seem as if a person’s actions are normal, which makes the issue at hand
