Transcript

  1. Crime and Hip Hop<br />By Gabby Gassman<br />
  2. The Music Speaks <br />You can listen to any number of songs by hip hop artists or rappers and you can tell that crime is a subject of quite a few songs but what do the lyrics really say?<br /> positive <br /> or<br />negative<br />
  3. Crimes<br />Drugs<br />Gangs <br />Shootings<br />Theft or Robbery<br />
  4. Examples<br />While some artists address the negative things about crime, others glorify it. Some artists can even be examples of what can happen.<br />
  5. Tragedy <br />Crime not only ruins lives but also causes tragedy. One major example that most people know about is TupacShakur<br />
  6. Why<br />With the way that artist glorify gang life and other crimes, it’s no wonder that young people today act on what they hear in the music they listen to<br />
  7. What We Can Do<br />By looking at why hip hop has such a huge impact, we can try to counter that impact with something more positive. <br />Things like after school <br />programs are a huge <br />help in keeping kids <br />safe and out of gangs.<br />
  8. Moving Forward<br />As time goes on and new artists emerge, hip hop is starting to gain a more positive light and more positive spin. This can be credited to artists such as:<br /> Ne-Yo<br /> Lupe Fiasco<br />
  9. A Brighter Tomorrow<br />Positive example will make for a brighter and more positive future for youth all around so if<br /> artists deliver a more<br /> positive message, we <br />can hope that we <br />would see a more<br /> positive world<br />
