I feel that hip hop has completely destroyed the social fabric of this generation and has led to the ultimate triumph of the dumb and sociopathic over all. Not just the 'ignorant' rap that's about guns, drugs, killing other black people, and degrading women like Gucci Mane, but the 'knowledge' rap that's about guns, drugs, killing other black people, and degrading women like wutang.
Hip hop has completely warped the average youth's perception of reality. It has produced a generation of women who are celebrated for not having shame and men who are cowards that anyone would be ashamed to call a father unless they themselves are cowards.
things that are socially disgusting have now become celebrated and we've officially reached the point where there's absolutely nothing of substance to learn from american culture. That's a huge denigration in western history that most of you don't have the capacity to understand. We have nothing to pass down to our children culturally.
The worst is it has created an environment where people refuse to grow up. the Hip Hop generation is trapped in childhood because their 'adult' role models are large children. Unraised children with no rule or feeling of self worth. The adult world is completely shunned by hip hop and this form of music has festered an America where living is pointless because nobody has the spine to live for anything great than themselves.
The most homicidal and morally bankrupt degeneration of ghetto culture has been packaged to continue poisoning this country and world.
There are a lot of hip hop songs and albums i like till this day, but I'm still man enough to admit that hip hop has had a net negative effect on this generation, blacks in particular.
