  2. 2. Critical Investigation Title<br />To what extent is violence used in rap/grime music videos, such as those featuring K Koke, and should audiences be protected from it through censorship?<br />

  10. 10. SHEP<br />S: Moral Panics: causing people to get worried about the type of media that is shown. Should it be regulated?<br />H: Government is strict on regulations and has always wanted to protect the public from issues such as violence.<br />E: Artists want to make money; so produce any type of music that can do this; as there is not much money involved in grime music from the start.<br />P: Government feel strongly about regulation and censorship. Strict on what media texts certain subcultures view such as violence.<br />
  11. 11. Issues/Debates<br />Representation & Stereotypes: violent culture<br /><ul><li>Guns/knife crime
  12. 12. Hoodies</li></ul>All of these aspects relate to the negative representations of youths<br />Moral Panics: <br />Regulation & Censorship: censor violent music videos to leading to negative implications<br />Media Technology & the Digital Revolution: easier for people to access media texts that are banned e.g. music videos, programmes, adverts.<br />
  13. 13. Media Theories<br />Hypodermic Needle: Music video injected into audiences<br />Cultivation Theory: Videos should be regulated to an extent can not be explicit as it will eventually stay in the publics heads as they will continuously view violent media<br />Uses & Gratifications Theory: escapism from real life; not all people take violence in a negative way, helps people see the effects of it<br />
  14. 14. 6-10 Points I Will Make In My Essay…<br />Grime music videos have been criticised by politicians and also artists within the Grime scene, for their violent content<br />Songs with violent lyrics increase aggression related thoughts and emotions and this effect is directly related to the violence in the lyrics<br />If you have ever looked on You Tube you will be shocked to see the amount of gang & grime music video's glorifying gun, knife and gang culture and violence<br />Eighty per cent of the rap music that is currently on the top ten lists around the world contains violence.<br />When grime was first hitting the headlines in 2004, many said it was the biggest thing to happen to British music since punk <br />One study found that young subjects who watched violent rap videos were more accepting of violent actions, particularly against women.<br />People need to make sure that they are not feeding our youth things that will destroy lives later on down the road.<br />
  15. 15. How My Research Fits into The Contemporary Landscape…<br />Popular with the youth audience<br />Urban Music: new music genre emerging, with successful artists such as Chipmunk; Wiley; Tinchy Stryder; so people think whatever is shown in the music videos is okay<br />Contemporary music<br />New technology; easy for youths to access media that they are restricted from through the internet<br />
