Music is Art Artists use music to express themselves Harsh environment sometimes creates harsh lyrics Explicit lyrics doesn’t necessarily create negative music
My Personal opinion Against Government intervention Parents should be more aware of what they kids are listening too For more conscious music if explicit
Rap Music Under Attack Don Imus Rap music often blamed Let’s not do away with free speech in the media
Rap music Under Attack Positive Vs. Negative Research the History before you criticize Rap music creates opportunity
Questions? Do anybody believe music sometimes go too far with the cursing? Who believe in censorship? Anybody believe that urban music is responsible for what’s wrong with kids today?
