Yes, I've seen this on CNN.

He doesn't think his lyrics influences violence. I don't know.

What do y'all think?

how do we know that you are not illuminati? you seem to know a lot about their inner workings, membership, charity and promotional events etc.

What do y'all think?
come on fam, you and i know nas's lyrics don't influence violence, just like any other rapper,

violence pops off in the hood because of availabilty of guns and shanks, social, economic reasons, institutional racism, poverty, fucked up inner city schools, dead end jobs in the hood, stuff like that

if rap didn't exist, there would still be human beings getting merked, you see what i'm saing dawg

its only a problem when its fake frontman pussy mc's/rappers or whatever chatting pure shit on the mic about street shit they don't know nuthin about, selling poison to the youth, because entertainment ain't responsble for the violence going on, but theirs always one yute that listens to it and thinks "yeah thats the way to live", thats when its a problem, these fake mudda fuckers in the game, but if you really lived that shit, seen that shit, rep that shit to a certain extent, then it ain't poison, your just doing you, getting money positively, beating the system legally, because the system dosen't want human beings of colour stackin p's on a big boy level, full stop, true stories

i mean, me personally now, watching scarface the movie had more influenced on me than any rap or any music or whatever, on a visual level, music is just sumthin to listen to, relate to, or to check for the bars, punchlines, similes, metaphors, like on some, "did you just hear that bar, that bar was sick, they can spit" like that and i'm not blaming or hating on movies either, i'm just saying, the mainstream media never talks on or hates on movies, when there more visual, but obviously they ain't responsible for whats going on wit the violence bizness either

someone that shoots or shanks someone on roads that listens to nas for example, would have probably done that without listening to nas or whoever, you have to be a gully type of brare(guy) to pull that trigger, put that shank in someone, it would have popped off either way, because of he social, economical, problems i talked on before, you get my point, you get me, thats the way i see it

in the 70's when funk was the music in the hood, there was still violence. the music then was more peaceful and focused more on good times than on bad times, but crime was still up. they tore down the pruitt igoe projects in philly for the same reason they're doing it today. the living conditions were horrible because nobody wanted to maintain the projects for the simple fact that they were a dangerous place to be. this was all before rap music was popular and way before it started 'glorifying' violence.

plus, in the late 80's/early 90's, the rap music that was gettin love in the hood was tame compared to the shit now, but crime is lower now than it was then.

music's got very little to do with it, if anything at all.
concentrate a lot of poor people together in a small area and shit's going to happen regardless. it comes from living in an environment where you're hungry, poor, desperate and you look at people around you and they ain't got nearly the amount of problems as you, but it's way easier for them to get ahead in life. it makes people irrational.

the music isn't to blame, it's only a reflection of the life people are born into before they even know what music is.

i swear some people would be shocked to find out that violence in the projects was nothing different before hip hop was born.

hip hop mainly influences kids from the streets, who already know the streets so nothing has really changed, only now there's music to relate to.

yup^


but also hollywood brain washes kids and people into a discontent state of mind, and that breeds jeolosy n envy.
Next to Christianity, advertising is the greatest force in the world. And I say that without sacrilege or disrespect. Advertising makes people discontented It makes them want things they don't have. Without discontent, there is no progress, no achievement. yadig

^^Pretty much.

It's all entertainment. I've listened to BTNH and Wu-Tang Clan since 1999 and not once have I smoked week, sell drugs, drink, wore jordans, or shot anybody. I also have a lot of mob movies at home.

It's all for entertainment purposes only.
