    • Crime and Hip Hop
      By Gabby Gassman
    • The Music Speaks
      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?
       positive
      or
      negative
    • Crimes
      Drugs
      Gangs
      Shootings
      Theft or Robbery
    • Examples
      While some artists address the negative things about crime, others glorify it. Some artists can even be examples of what can happen.
    • Tragedy
      Crime not only ruins lives but also causes tragedy. One major example that most people know about is TupacShakur
    • Why
      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
    • What We Can Do
      By looking at why hip hop has such a huge impact, we can try to counter that impact with something more positive.
      Things like after school
      programs are a huge
      help in keeping kids
      safe and out of gangs.
    • Moving Forward
      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:
       Ne-Yo
       Lupe Fiasco
    • A Brighter Tomorrow
      Positive example will make for a brighter and more positive future for youth all around so if
      artists deliver a more
      positive message, we
      can hope that we
      would see a more
      positive world
