Overview

Showing that in its early days rap music led to black consciousness, this discussion goes on to argue that the current preoccupations of rap—especially the erotic themes expressed and their dramatization in music videos—have led to an unthinking youthful acceptance of profanity, vulgarity, sexual abuse, and violence. The book advocates for a return to rap's origins, for young people to become more selective and critical of today's music, and for parents to take a more active role in monitoring their children's listening habits.
