Well, obviously, you don't know the first thing about hip hop. For example, Chris Briidges AKA Ludacris has wrote about "rushing The club and tearing s^^T up" in his tracks.. However, year in and year out, he puts on charity events for the children in his community down in Atlanta and promotes non violence. Yet, using your won theory, his music would be banned because of what he "allegedly" promotes. Or another example is the killing in New Bedford, mass a couple of weeks back. the guy wa a self proclaimed "juggalo", a follower of ICP if you will... Yet ICP came out and ripped the guy for committing the murder on their website and said that the guy didn't know the first thing about being a juggalo. Gang Banging, if you will, was a problem well before Gangsta rap was huge and will still be a problem if Gangsta Rap was eliminated. The Bill O'reillys of the world want to lay the blame on one thing or another... These shooters are an issue far bigger than hip hop music. Are there rappers out there who have gone overboard in their personal lives? Sure, but thats not the genre's fault. Gangs such as the Bloods and Crips existed well before Gangsta Rap was around. Gang-banging is an unfortuantely reality of the society we live in.
