Issues in Rap Music What Is The Problem? The Music Videos The negative and violent behaviour of hip hop artists have a great influence on the teens that idolize them. This controversial genre has many critics and researchers debating on why the negative side of Hip Hop, involving gun violence and gun related terms, illegal drugs, alcohol and more, is bad for teens of this generation who seem to be highly influenced by the many things and artists that come with fame. The Rappers The Society (Wiz Khalifa's "No Sleep") Not only has hip hop been affecting the behaviour of teens but it has also begun to have a huge effect on society. Hip Hop effects society , society effects teens. Within the society a large amount of stereotypes are created, believed, listened to and talked about amongst many teens. The society is a very ugly , racist and discriminative thing . Thanks to Hip Hop and many other media related industries, teens follow these influential trends such as smoking illegal drugs, drinking alcohol, inappropriate dancing, gun violence and many more other ridiculous and negative behaviour. The Statistics... Did you know?.... *Teens between the ages of 13-17 listen to music at least 4-5 hours a day

* about 75% of rap videos contain some kind of sexual imagery and the videos contain something relating to drugs or alcohol

*3 percent of songs today portray tobacco use, 14 percent portray marijuana smoking, 24 depicted alcohol use, 12 percent included references to other substances, and approximately 4 percent contain anti-alcohol and drug related messages Why is this type of music so infleuntial? The state if Hip Hop has gotten worse over the years. The chances of Hip Hop's negative and violent ways to be put to an end is highly undefinable . If Hip Hop artists were to produce more records that promote possitive messages ,the state of teens and the society would most likely change . What Should be Done ? Thank You For Listening !
