    50 cent

    is not as ignorant as you think he is

    he's business man under the current context

    and like he said, like i have said

    what about those movies, SAW, 1, 2,3, hostel, hannibal, Friday 13th, were

    murder is entertainment

    murder

    and i know of alot people who would take calling them a b*tch or a h*e

    as opposed to killing them and choppin' them up

    yes we do need to clean our language towards our beautiful sistas

    but the same time we all need to check that

    but that will never happen negativity makes money

    and that what makes this sort of non-sensical lol

    so when altar boy type can make money at an accelerated rate

    then you will see altar boys popping up all over the place


    peace

    rap music is ignorant and it brainwashes young black people to toat guns and get drunk which ultimately leads to exteremely high rate of black on black crime. you and 50 cent can mention all the dam movies that you want, but white people not shooting white people up every day

    I understand how you feel...I thought like this unrelentlessly for many years - until I took a look at the Real World through my own eyes. While I agree with your thoughts on our issues and our affairs, I have to say that you should re-examine how White folks look at other White folks. The Truth of the matter is they are just as messed up...just see it for yourself.

    rap music is not of what you speak my brethren

    it's the rap that YOU are exposed to

    please do your research

    what you listen to is too commercialized

    and most positive rap is shot down

    and when you do try to do something positive someone has to put the "sucka" label on it

    i've been doing this too long

    this goes deeper than rap music

    trust me

    and yes the rap you are "exposed to" is geared to break you down

    not lift you up

    I don't think it's a good defense, to point at someone else's wrong, to justify your own.

    yes

    yes it would

    that's the problem

    the concentration on the negative content

    suppressing the positive

    2 wrongs don't make a right

    i'm talking about ALL the negative influential stuff

    i'm not defensing anything

    i'm just saying look at it all

    yes there's is a problem with rap i don't argue that with you

    but let's look at all the negative spins on today entertainment and

    the negative influence it has on the youth

    and how they promote the negative rap

    at the expense of suppressing the positive rap

    look at that as well

    but this all boils down to business no matter how you cut it

    people will sell what people are willing to buy

    thanx
