Hip Hop Documentary
That hip hop documentary was really interesting, because it made me think out of the box. It was good to hear their side of the story, and why their lyrics are they way they are. African Americans are less fortunate at times, because of the issues of race. They simply choose to portray it in their music, unlike other cultures. The things the artists say in their music is at times very inappropriate and offensive, and it is their way of life. We as the listeners have the choice to listen or to not listen. The singers have talent, and they obviously have a hard past, but we all do. I think that hip hop artists need to be a little bit more respectful in their lyrics. And we need to take a stand and not buy their albums if we are offended by them, because the albums will keep on being made. The documentary said that Caucasians are the main buyers of hip hop music. We need to stop buying the music if we don't like what it portrays.
