Thread: Gangsta Rap/hip hop , censorship and the right wing conservatives

  1. #1

    Default Gangsta Rap/hip hop , censorship and the right wing conservatives

    A brand of music that wasnt big in South Dublin in the 80's but we'd get the occasional report on the news of these styles of music being banned or censored at various time and even some cd burnings by nutty religious groups. My only impression was that it its winding up conservatives it cant be all bad. The second song I linked to I believe generated a letter from the FBI to the record company to put them on warning. Other styles of music had their own share of censorship, a country and music song The Pill was banned in the 70's for instance but rap styles stick in my mind as more news worthy
    So can any style of music lead to statistically measurable poor behaviour? personally I dont think so any more than heavy metal summoned satan. Was it racially motivated, remember MTV wouldnt even play Michael Jackson at one stage or just "genuine" fear from an older generation that didnt get it, similar to our Seanad has beens and the internet and video games?
    Whats your view of the music in cultural terms , an insight into delinquency ? or just another form of entertainment with nothing much to say?

    A couple of examples first one love this unoffical video of M.O.P Ante up btw yap means hold up at gunpoint , second one N.W.A. F**k the police a nice upbeat little ditty

    Right about now NWA court is in full effect.
    Judge Dre presiding in the case of NWA versus the police department.
    Prosecuting attourneys are MC Ren Ice Cube and Eazy muthafu*kin E.
    Order order order. Ice Cube take the muthafu*kin stand.
    Do you swear to tell the truth the whole truth
    and nothin but the truth so help your black ass?

    Why don't you tell everybody what the ************************ you gotta say?

    Fu*k tha police
    Comin straight from the underground
    Young nigga got it bad cuz I'm brown
    And not the other color so police think
    They have the authority to kill a minority

    Fu*k that ************************, cuz I ain't tha one
    For a punk mutha************************a with a badge and a gun
    To be beatin on, and throwin in jail
    We could go toe to toe in the middle of a cell

    Fu*kin with me cuz I'm a teenager
    With a little bit of gold and a pager
    Searchin my car, lookin for the product
    Thinkin every nigga is sellin narcotics

    You'd rather see me in the pen
    Then me and Lorenzo rollin in the Benzo
    Beat tha police outta shape
    And when I'm finished, bring the yellow tape
    To tape off the scene of the slaughter
    Still can't swallow bread and water

    I don't know if they fags or what
    Search a nigga down and grabbin his nuts
    And on the other hand, without a gun they can't get none
    But don't let it be a black and a white one
    Cuz they slam ya down to the street top
    Black police showin out for the white cop

    Ice Cube will swarm
    On any muthafu*ka in a blue uniform
    Just cuz I'm from the CPT, punk police are afraid of me
    A young nigga on a warpath
    And when I'm finished, it's gonna be a bloodbath
    Of cops, dyin in LA
    Yo Dre, I got somethin to say

    Fu*k the police (4X)

    I love hip-hop and rap, have done since the early days of NWA, Ice T and LL CoolJ. If it gets on conservative nuts then all the better

    Rap is NOT music

    Maybe it should not be banned

    - but it should not be listened to either....

    PS Anyone in Merrion Square today?

    - where REAL music was being played
    If you can convince a People to engage in the mass elimination of their own offspring - you can probably get them to do anything...

    As above rap is NOT music. Only relevant to a tiny underclass who seem to think it is.

    This from 1982 is one of the real classics in my view:
    The truth of an idea is not a stagnant property inherent in it. Truth happens to an idea. It becomes true, is made true by events.
