I agree with what he's "trying" to say which is that a certain element of hip hop is having a negative impact on the black community.  He doesn't seem dumb enough to really believe that that element is the "thing" that is holding us back as a culture.  We are not held back.   We are held down.  

What he said about suicide is interesting.   I wonder how others will react to his story.

Also IMO that element of hip-hop is having a very negative impact on the relationships between young black men and women.

obviously hip hop is to blame, but will this lead to a life of crime ?

I don't think the problem is that hip hop is a part of black culture. The problem is that for a lot of people, especially younger people, hip hop is the only part of black culture that they embrace, know about, or accept as authentic.

I feel like this is reaching a little but and its not even necessary.  The P-I-C has a million ways to fry the egg.  Maybe they really do think that this is a good tactic but statistically black kids are no more violent or criminal minded than yt kids even if the record companies produced reams of "satanic" music this hasn't changed.  I would think this is more of a mask than a tool.  Even with that I put nothing past them I just think this tide of blaming hip-hop music and once again black culture is another diversion we don't need.

I can't respect anything in that industry when white men in suits are literally telling these artists to make music with destructive messages.

Albums are refused for being 'too positive'.

I just think it's disgusting to be used like a punk like that.

Some people can listen to a song and turn the dial, then its some that wanna start making coke snowmen cause Jeezy said so, the thing is he didnt quit his CEO job to start mixing baking soda he wasnt trying to do much anyway. 

People get they own self in they own situations Confused
