Once upon a "rap " ago
Rap Music is still capable of achieving its goals but rap artist have diverted the people's message of social change and a cry for better wages, better esducational opportunities for all children, and a better standard of living to a form of music which centers upon the personal achievement of the music artist and the millions or billions they have made selling rap records to people who are in search of a better living condition. The theme of rap music has shifted from the purpose of uplifdting communites in political, social, and economic dispair to flaunting to those individuals living in those conditions the fact that the artist is cahing in big dollars off the sale of rap record sales and living the life of kings and Queens. There is nothing wrong with success, wealth, money, and power . The truth be told the music is about personal glory rather than communtiy empowerment. Its not only rap most of music is commerical ,business orientated , bottom dollar structured. I just remeber a place in time when it seemed that social change was really about community empowerment . Every one in music want to be the new "Al Capone" and at the same time be seen as the "Moses" that provides the freedom from government oppression.
