Transcript of Music In Society

Clothes/Fashion Rap has greatly influenced trends in clothing/fashion. Back in the 1990s, most rap artist's wore extra-large T-shirts with a white undershirt, baggy jeans and athletic shoes. They'd also wear fitted baseball hats. Rap artists loved to wear flashy, big jewelery.
Many people that listened to Rap in the 90's also dressed a lot like this. They got these styles from such artists like Biggie Smalls, Tupac Shakur, and Snoop Dogg. Now a days, Rap artists are still a huge influence on people's fashion. Some artisrts still wear those baggy clothes, but some also wear skinny jeans, but still lowered down, and a little bit of tighter shirts, not so loose. Artists that influence fashion today would be artists like Lil Wayne, Wiz Khalifa, and Eminem. Synchronization - Music On Films/Computer Games Music In Society Communication - Lyrics, Messages, Media Rap music in society always has a specific message to send to people whether it being positive or negative. Most people judge rap music and assume that it is always about guns and drugs. On the other hand some artist have messages behind the guns and drugs. For example in most of eminem's songs he talks about his life experiences, which relate to drugs and guns, but raps about how they are a harmful.
Whereas on the other hand some artists' messages are towards different areas of society such as the government. Plan B, for example, raps about how the government don't care about society and the society's attitude towards the disadvantaged youth population. One of the main artists that had the most influential lyrics throughout the years was Tupac, throughout the years Tupacs lyrical messages have spoken to many people even today people still are inspired by his messages.
Most of the media blame music for the problems with teens in today’s society, mostly relating to the genre of rap. They blame rap music for drugs, murders and sex, but the truth is rap lyrics are rapping about the struggles in life and the societies problems. Conflict/Violence Throughout society there has been alot of conflict regarding rap music. Artists such as Ludacris & Lil Wayne all have gunshots as rhythmical beats, graphic lyrical content showing violent scenes and glorifying gang life and records of popular rap stars serving prison sentences (e.g. artist T.I was sentenced for federal weapons charges).
However even though most rappers are stereotypically labelled as thugs who carry guns and use drugs, not all of the artists have negative messages through there lyrics (e.g. Tupac). For example Tupac's song Thug Life's message wasn't about violence and crime, but about standing up for what you believe in and transcending the obstacles put in front of you. 'How Rap Music In Society Has Affected Different Topics' By Chanel Francis Music in society has long been an expression of people from different cultures around the world and is created by cultures. Music in society brings people to communication. Different people like different music, the fans of one genre make social groups and movements. 'Look there’s a chav, That means council housed and violent, He’s got a hoodie on give him a hug, On second thoughts don’t you don’t wanna get mugged'
Plan B - Ill Manors 'We’ve had it with you politicians, You bloody rich kids never listen, There’s no such thing as broken Britain, We’re just bloody broke in Britain'
Plan B - Ill Manors 'See what these kids do is hear about us totin' pistols, And they want to get one cause they think the shit's cool, It's f**ked up ain't it'
Eminem - Sing For The Moment 'I got my mind on makin' money, Jumpin' around at the shows, And your the first muthafucka to jump, To the trunk when it's time for fun'
Tupac - Thug Life 'We gotta make a change...It's time for us as a people to start makin' some changes. Let's change the way we eat, let's change the way we live, and let's change the way we treat each other.'
Tupac - Changes 'Just a friendly message to everybody man who thought I was gone forever, partner It’s a year and a day and counting you understand, by the time you hear this I probably be half way home no remember that suckers'
T.I - Remember Me Rap music's impact on society through computer games has both positive and negative views. For instance society, when it comes to rap music in video games, if the content rating is 12+ then most of the rap music are from artists that have respectable lyrics suitable for the specific age group, whereas if the content rating is 15+, possibly 18+ then the songs/lyrics will be more explicit to work with the atmosphere described/shown on the video game itself. Rap music in video games also can give negative and positive views towards children on how to behave, for example, a postive way to look at rap music in society would be that children learn different skills for the rest of the social world, however that can also relate to a negative view, depending on how society looks at it. Rap Music in society has had a lot of negative criticism due to the abusive lyrics and fowl language, although some rap music has specific messages.Rap music within racial stereotyping in society, is a huge issue in both negative and positive ways. For example rap music reinforces racial stereotypes by projecting black males as primarily criminals or unfaithful partners who lack character. This makes it harder for young black men who do the right thing to get noticed. Rap is often an outlet and coping mechanism for disadvantaged youths.
