People that do not listen to rap music should realize that rap music carries out positive meanings for society to recognize. People can take rap as too loud or annoying, or people think, “Why do these rap artists have to cuss so much?” Yes, rap music will talk about sex, drugs, and degrading women. I believe that true rap music serves its purpose by sharing life stories and confronting harsh realities. There is a rap song called “Mockingbird” by Eminem, and it is about Eminem telling his daughter that he will always be there for her even though he is thousands of miles away. Critics of “Mockingbird” said the lyrics of the songs were a heart-warming sensation and addresses to a lot of people who are without a member of their family. With Eminem and his success, he is not just famous for the style he presents, but the messages he carries out and the realities there are in life. “Along with the widespread drug use…Many artists simply left these tough issues alone, but Tupac gravitated toward the controversy.”(Seth Campbell, Opinion) Rap music is straightforward, and people should not take that for granted. If there were only more rappers like Eminem and Tupac, and all the new rappers coming into Hollywood would aim as high as those rappers did…the world would be a little bit better of a place. If people focus on the rappers who do nothing but cuss and degrade women, then those are the people that look for nothing but the worst in society. Rap music symbolizes that out of every unfortunate income of life, there is always a message; perhaps a legacy, like Tupac, to be born and presented to a number of generations and generations to come.

Often times when people hear about Hip Hop/Rap music, they’ll paint a
picture in their heads of black men cussing, guns, marijuana, lots of gold,

to be influenced by something that is negative. With the way Rap music is
advertised in the US, I would have to agree with that looking at it from an
average parent’s point of view. But what people don’t….
