I started a Hip Hop website/blog that, only with a couple articles, does cover the issue of violence in Hip Hop music and also some material related to "sex symbols" in Hip Hop. I consider the material relatively mild, but it does, for instance, include videos of songs with some explicit lyrics, though I don't advocate violence at all in these articles or anywhere on the site. I have not monetized the site except with a couple Amazon ads. I am wondering if it would be risky to use Adsense and, if so, is there an alternative to Adsense that would be more appropriate.
In my experience you might get by for a while, but eventually the site will lose adsense. It will take long if "bad words" are only on the video but it sounds like you text will have them in an acceptable context, but that will trigger a check that will find them on the video.
I had a site lose adsense because of a discussion about the terminology used in romance novels to describe genitalia, and how that effects/reflects public attitude and shame about nudity. Quite a dry topic, but used the forbidden words.

I am just learning all about everything on the internet, and I signed up for a Google AdSense account so that I could get paid for my articles. Well, I don't know what the heck I did, but they deleted my account and have now denied me access to another one? I have tried and tried to get...

Looks like another content sniper is at work, stealing our shizz from HubPages. This so called "music news" site has sniped at least four of my Hubs and it looks like there are many other pieces pinched from my fellow music Hubbers as well. If you've written any Hubs about music (any kind...

Will they still be allowed to continue writing for the niche sites or will this site be diluted as our best writers and their work leave for a better deal?

After 7 months and 19 hubs including 5 Stellar and 9 exclusive titles my adsense account has disapproved. This is disappointing. I cannot find a way out to solve this issue. I have got an error of insufficient content.I don't know how to react to this issue. I have read on websites like trionode...
