Those names of history you mention I just mentioned some of them in my hubs about Influential Music in history. The younger generation needs to know what real music is. Thanks for keeping their name alive.
Rayne123, Those were the days of "real music". The "rap" was that part of a song where the singer did some smooth talking like EW&F "All About Love" or The Spinners - Love Don't Love Nobody (It Takes A Fool) or Cause I Love You - Lenny Williams :
Very true! However would you say rap music has had (no negative impact) on society? If it has, in what ways?
Yes, it has shaped some attitudes, but so did Rock and Roll, heavy metal, punk etc. Kids may or may not grow out of it. Each generation has their own rebellion. But evil is already alive. Hitler didn't need rap music to kill 6 million people.
I agree with what you said but what are some of the negative impacts that (rap) has had on society? Is it just attitudes?
I think there is a difference between negative and "evil". No genre of music contributed to Hitler's actions.
My point is degenerated and demoralized people have always been here since cavemen. It is in the DNA. Even if there were no music at all.
Excellent point! However it seems you're having an issue with coming up with any negative regarding rap. We've covered Hitler, heavy metal, punk, cavemen and DNA. Can you attribute anything negative that (rap music) has contributed to society? :)
I'm saying it cannot be totally pinned on rap. There are other factors involved, like anger, poverty, lust, low self esteem, hero worship encouraged by Hollywood, images of wealth, swagger, fashion. Rap is the current scapegoat for deeper issues
